    In light of the problems I've been having with Norton Antivirus 2004 I would like to ask everyone what virus scanner is your fav?

    At the moment I would say the 2003 version. Does anyone think different?

    I prefer Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition.

    Please read the poll it will answer your question fully and then read the AV test results to get an idea of the best performing AV.

    Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition is the big sister of NAV and is targeted at businesses because of the ability to centralised its management. In terms of performance and detection rates it is no different.

    See here

    In terms of detection NAV is not the best but it is one of the best in a all around package yes.

    The latest AV test results are here
