I stick with Kaspersky, 4 years now, and happy with it :)
Yeah I agree there alright! Although I am still using kav pro 4.5.0.94 tried the 5x versions and save an early beta i was using i have found them to slow my system down alot more than my old pro 4.5

I sure don't know why everyone slams Mcafee. I've been using it for 10 years and it's never let a virus through. It's the corporation standard at work (>50,000 desktops) and they could have selected anything that's available.

I wouldn't trust any test that has McAfee as the best AV.
Actually most tests put McAfee in the top 5, it does have a impressive detection rate.

I believe that to be it's only good quality, sorry LeeJend but the fact that the AV is in use in a large corporate environment means nothing, they may have just picked the cheapest solution for the environment :) It's not a bad product but I personally wouldn't call it a good one either.

I know they do, yet I consistently work on PC's that have McAfee installed and are seriouly infected. I see the same with NAV lately as well. I was a big fan of theirs for years, and have ran NAV for a long time, and since switched to AVG, couldn't be happier.

The problem really is that the distinction between spyware and trojans/virus/worms is becoming quite blurred. NAV, non corporate, or whatever the one is without extra detection, doesn't detect alot of these, but AVG does. So the detection rate is not affected, depending on the test criteria ;)

I used McAfee for about a year, started to have a problem with my machine, used Nortons free online scanner. It found it first try, switched, haven't had a prob in 3 yrs. And it's stopped a lot while dl'ing off of kazaa/Imesh.

Kaspersky has me interested, because of it's size and accuracy.

Every box of McCrappy shold have a free $20.00 inside. But only if it cost $10.00.

I like Norton, never used Kaspersky. I also like AVG, cause it's small and accurate, but Norton gives real time scanning. Can't beat that while surfing for umm, yeah that too.

AVG does realtime scanning, but only on execution, you can download a virus, but it will be alerted on execution. This is much more efficient, and a common reason for the noticeable slowdown when using NAV, it is constantly scanning everything, not really necessary IMHO, and from some of what I've seen get though, not always effective.

I think the bottom line is, no matter the AV program you use, keep everything updated, make sure they are setup right, use heuristics, etc. otherwise they are useless.
