G-Data does seem to be getting good reviews and seeing as My ESET 30 day trial is coming to an end I am gonna try out G-data - I will post any findings here.

The AV-comparitives are competent but donīt seem to take performance or system stress into account - whereas Toms Guide concentrates more on the speed and performance aspects. I guess we will need to form opinions based on both sets of results.

EDIT just been to the Link posted by Jacee and they place Bit Defender at No1- however AV - comparitives only place BitDefender in the Midfield... So I guess there are 3 sources where we must go to make a balanced judgement...

It really is time that someone brings out a security software with good recognition, easy use and performance - that canīt be too much to ask can it? - especially when you think that the limited time they "sell" you a licence (at hefty prices) for is more like leasing your software than buying it!
