I used AVG and it deleted 437 viruses/malware items...
Where can i get different viruses? Dear SF.
I am going to make a big Anti Virus test soon, which will be done on my old desktop.
The test will be testing which AV removes the most of the viruses, and which AV that does it the best.
AV's like Morro, Norton, Kaspersky, IObit, Panda and AVG will be included in the test.
