2009 Anti-Virus Roundup

It's time for Tomís Guide to give you a complete guide to the best anti-virus offerings on the market, including commercial and freeware alternatives.

Anti-virus software has become a tool that you just canít live without as itís used everyday on every PC (or it should be). There are many kinds of software available, all of which different companies make with different price tags. Faced this wide range of possibilities, the non-professional user can often feel lost due to a lack of reliable information with which he or she can make intelligent purchasing decisions.

To help you out, we testes the latest versions of the 15 most used anti-virus offerings: Kaspersky, Panda, McAfee, Comodo, Norton, Trend Micro Pc-Cillin, Avira Antivir, Bit Defender, G-Data Total Care, Eset Smart Security, AVG, Clamwin, F-Secure, and Avast! Home Edition.

It's nice to see Avira free edition give the best paid for AVs a run for their money and wiping the floor with other free editions (although I am using Norton Gaming Edition at the minute). It's the second year running they have it No1 in it's category.

I'ts everybody to their own though and I thought I would post this for the people who are deciding what Anti Virus they should choose.

Me neither. AVG to me has always felt heavy and cumbersome.

I had AVG for about 1.5 year, than I switched to Avira after having some of my friends computer being crashed by AVG, it was deleting a system file!

I am very satisfied with Avira. I'm happy to see that I did a good choice.
