    AV-Comparatives

    On this site you will find independent comparatives of Anti-Virus software. All products listed in our comparatives are already a selection of some very good anti-virus products. In order to get tested by us, companies must fulfill various conditions and minimum requirements..

    The following products were used in the last comparative (with best possible settings):
    Look into the online results to determine the exact version number.
    Avast! Professional Edition 4.7
    AVG Professional 7.1
    AVIRA AntiVir Personal Edition Premium 7.01
    BitDefender Professional Plus 9.5
    Dr.Web for Windows 95-XP 4.33.2
    ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus 2.51.26
    F-Prot for Windows 3.16f
    F-Secure Anti-Virus 6.12
    G DATA AntiVirusKit (AVK) 16.0.7
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0
    McAfee VirusScan 11.0
    Norman Virus Control 5.81
    Symantec Norton Anti-Virus 12.2
    TrustPort Antivirus Workstation 2.0
    VBA32 Workstation 3.11.0

    Notes:

    1. The test done this month is the retrospective test, which is done using 3 month old signatures. This is done so that one can test how much can an antivirus detect heuristically (without having signatures for that virus).
    2. Please link only to http://www.av-comparatives.org DO NOT link to any other page. Also do not copy paste results here.
    3. This site is known is the whole AV industry to be the most reliable and un-biased.

    Lol, dont make this thread into a "What is the best for me" one please. Let's wait for AV-C's results :p

    I use - None. Lol, a HJT and the Task Manager do fine, till now. You must know your way around the net ;)

    As far as detection and speed is considered, AntiVir and NOD32 is the best.
    I have tried different AV myself.
