In a field which is rapidly changing (I remember the days when the idea of updating your virus scanner more than twice a year was considered fussy) it would be interesting to know which virus scanner people regard as the best, in terms of performance, ease of use, features, price, etc.
I have used AVG for ayears and it has saved me on quite a few occasions.
I know there are many free ones out there, some obviouly better than others, what do you think?
have there been any (respectable) tests carried out?
(not to disappoint anyone!!) - my one main point about AV protection is that only the best is sensible. IMHO a few €s a year is nothing compared with protection. By the best, it has to mean the highest chance of detecting any virus likely to be incoming - and how to discover this is to run rigoruu tests.
