hi !

58th VB100: is also very important how good it performs today, and not only several years ago, but that´s of course true for all A/V´s.
also take a look at the history (older tests) at fx. VB100 / AV-comparatives, it´s interesting reading...

"...it is recommended to also have installed an antispyware software"

absolutely right !
i only want to make a short comment, since there are already other threads about "the best A/V´s & FW´s"....

i´m using: a normal "USER-account", MSE, Avira-free, A2-full, MBAM-free, Comodo´s FW & D+, a HOSTS-file, UAC at max, a working "main CPU" & "2 optical input units".
i have a fresh KIS-license, planning to retire MSE & Avira and switch to KIS 2010, just need to verify it´s going to work with the other protection first...

Honestly, Uninstall ALL your security programs except for Malwarebytes and A2-full if its just for on-demand scans (idk what it is!) and use KIS 2010. Very light. Very fast. Very protective and has many shields. Malwarebytes is good for once-a-month scans IMO. Also, you can keep UAC at whatever you want. But remember, KIS 2010 has a firewall and so does COMODO FW with defense+, and more than one firewall is just the same as no firewall. Hope that works for you!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. NOD32 is THE best av software available. Despite some of the poster's here negative comments, NOD32 remains on top of all other products and the title of this thread is the proof of that statement

Each to his own I guess, but I personally don't think it is the best. I'm not sure there is a "best" AV really. A combo of various security apps is most likely the best approach.

I'm running Vipre AV and have had no issues, excellent system performance, quick updates from Sunbelt and no viruses or any malware to speak of. I use various online scanners on my system from time to time and so far Vipre has not let anything through and has blocked everything I have thrown it's way.

I'm looking forward to Vipre being included hopefully in the next round of testing as I have contacted Sunbelt and they have been trying to get in on the tests, which apparently is not as simple as asking to be included. It is a long process, but I do look forward to my choice of AV's being included to see how it competes with apps like Nod.

Edit: I should add though, congrats to ESET. That is an impressive record.

Honestly, after using other anti-viruses, ESET is lacking in features and detection rate. It basically FAILS at blocking USB worms - So watch your back with those USB's. ESET will fail you when you least know it.

I have not been able to get anything past Norton 360 V4, Unlike ESET. Its multi-layered shields, compared to ESET's one basic shield makes it much better. NOT only that, but its MUCH lower on resources, has backup, identify theft protection (that actually works!) and tune-up (registry cleaner, disk defrag exc) and does its own thing when your AFK.

Lets see ESET, or ANY other Antivirus EVER created go less than 5.5MB RAM usage.

Vipre has excellent detection rates but it will fail due to false positives. I have a program which installs 5 apps on my phone. However, when I run it, Vipre falsely detects it as Trojan, just because it uses autorun feature.

I know you have had some false positives with Vipre. I also wish that you would report every single instance to Sunbelt so they can improve.

I have never had ONE false positive with Vipre. Strange that you seem to have so many and I have not ONE.

I did however have several false positives with ESET.
