Shows how dangerous these comparisons are.
·AOL Active Virus Shield (Free): 89.02%
·Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0: 84.77%

these use the same AV engine (Kaspersky) so why the discrepancy?

=A1PESET NOD32 2.7: 49.17%?????
Jiangmin Antivirus KV 2007: 45.16% (What is this?)

I just dont trust tests from this website. One of the reasons is the
limited number of malware/virus used in their test. Secondly, it is
obvious that their methods are questionable since it differs very much
with tests from reputable sources like www.av-comparatives.com

Which antivirus software do you recommend?
I have used mcafee, Norton and products from webroot.
I liked mcafee, but I really like Norton so we use that now..... It is
not so processor intensive I find

Firstly, the website address is www.av-comparatives.org Sorry for the
mistake. I recommend AntiVir from Avira and NOD32 from Eset. They
perform well in tests run by the website I mentioned before. Norton is
good too but whether it affects the system resources depends on the
system configuration. With lots of RAM,it might not be a problem to
run Norton.

Norton:

1. More than often has conflict with other programs.
2. More than often is *very* hard to uninstall completeley.

Google for "norton+uninstall"
