Interesting read and even AntiVir gets the top spot in the free category.

"Tom" even compare whats left over after an uninstall and the % of time added to start-up :o

It's time for Tom’s Guide to give you a complete guide to the best anti-virus offerings on the market, including commercial and freeware alternatives.

 

Anti-virus software has become a tool that you just can’t live without as it’s used everyday on every PC (or it should be). There are many kinds of software available, all of which different companies make with different price tags. Faced this wide range of possibilities, the non-professional user can often feel lost due to a lack of reliable information with which he or she can make intelligent purchasing decisions.

 

To help you out, we testes the latest versions of the 15 most used anti-virus offerings: Kaspersky, Panda, McAfee, Comodo, Norton, Trend Micro Pc-Cillin, Avira Antivir, Bit Defender, G-Data Total Care, Eset Smart Security, AVG, Clamwin, F-Secure, and Avast! Home Edition.

No wonder, Avira still the best free AV ;)

 

I've been thinking to switch Avast to G-DATA.It's another best detection AV ( paid version ) ;)

Do you mean these just published? A week or two early.

 

http://www.av-comparatives.org/ Click on the main comparatives link.

 

Please note they have requested no linking to the actually documentation.

 

No problem, just read it.

 

Microsoft and Avira did well.

Why in the world are they using ESET 3? That totally sucks..!

Perhaps because version 4 wasn't released until March and these results are based on February versions.

 

,e.g it was Avira 8's results also, as version 9 wasn't out then.

Okay, makes sense. But this is a pretty stupid thing for them. These guys are highly reputed. They should keep us 'updated' :)
