http://www.av-test.org/certifications

Here's the listing of the top antivirus apps for repairing infections, from AV-test.org:

  1. Avira (paid-for)
  2. Kaspersky (paid-for)
  3. Panda (paid-for)
  4. Eset (paid-for)
  5. F-Secure (paid-for)
  6. Symantec (paid-for)
  7. Microsoft Security Essentials (free!)

… and more at the link above.

But I think the important thing to note here is that the only free AV on the list is MSE!  (Then again, it's the only free one they tested…  shh.)

Oh, the site that was :(

You know I saw this website. I was thinking about writing a AV-Comparatives.org vs AV-Test.org article comparing why the results of the two are so different and which one is more trust worthy. In short, I find more comfortable with AV-Comparatives' tests because they are much better at thoroughly explaining their process, analysis, and results.

For AVs, if you are on Windows, go with ClamAV for Windows, if you are on Mac, go with ClamXav, and on Linux, BSD, and other Unices, go with the ClamAV and ClamTk combo.

O_o Dont do that!  Clam may be free and portable and all, but it has horrendus detection rates and even worse removal rates. AV-test gave it a 52% score.

 

I saw that article too, and what I got from it was that Panda wins the number 1 spot, as it was the only suite to get 5.5 in both protection and repair.

You got Pwnd

It is a little out of hand.

But no one else has a portable antivirus, except for those boot AVs.  So it's still staying in my toolkit. 

I like AV-comparitives more, because I managed to use it to convince someone MSE was better than AVG.

oh right one more thing.. in response to ashraf..

 

i think the av-comparative is just for the free software.. while Av-test is mainly for the Paid (full feature suite- the best version).. obviously you know that, how could u not??? (ur the founder of dottech) but yahh.. i dont think there is a difference but then again im me and ur U!!!!
