The latest test from virus.gr includes 52 different anti virus applications. They were rigorously tested using 174,770 virus samples, and the settings of each application were tweaked to ensure that they all caught maximum number of viruses (despite increasing the possibility that the the software would be more likely to return a false positive).

This is the list of the top 20 antivirus applications


1. Kaspersky version 7.0.0.43 beta - 99.23%

7. BullGuard version 7.0.0.23 - 96.59%
8. Ashampoo version 1.30 - 95.80%
9. eScan version 8.0.671.1 - 94.43%
10. Nod32 version 2.70.32 - 94.00%
11. CyberScrub version 1.0 - 93.27%

Kaspersky eats up your memory, Nod 32 dosent bother you at all.

Kaspersky is the best protection, but not the best overall.

If you live in Californa maybe you should convert to Macintosh instead? Its a Californian company, and they have no viruses at all.

I've used several of the antiviruses listed above and i can say that kaspersky really deserves its 1st place. however it has compatibilty issues with other spyware or firewall programs. i used it with spy doctor and it used to block action from the spy program. so i switched to NOD32. good antivirus as well.

I suggest you use Nod32, Are you using one that eats up your ram? Norton, Kaspersky, F-Secure?

True. NOD32 isn't memory hungry so it doen't affect system performance.

You use Norton! Its like the worst one, it always asks for evereything, a good antivirus software should know whats bad without asking for permissions.

And it makes the computer slow.

I suggest you use Nod32, or install Linux instead to not havign to have an anti virus at all.

Kaspersky is the best protection, nothing harmfull comes in. But it isnt the best overall. Its good if its on a company computer such as a bank.

If anyone finds an anti-virus program which deals with Alpha Dude, then please direct me to where I can download/purchase it from. It seems he has caught the virus off someone else and it is spreading rapidly!

Just keepyour antivirus updated, sometimes a realy bad virus comes in. They are solving the problem.

Remember love_you.exe? they where a menace, but they figured it out, just have patience.
