BitDefender and Sophos are really good too. I have one PC that I infect with viruses and I use different AV products and see which one can remove certain new viruses such as Ruin and whatnot.
MIT does a virus research project every year or maybe a couple times a year now that I think about it and for the past 7 years they have ranked NOD32 at the top of the list with Sophos right behind it.
Au contraire...TREND'S PC-CILLIN INTERNET SECURITY SYSTEM is by far the best, coupled with the best service. I have been using PC-cillin since 1995, save for a very short stint with Norton [yuck!] and never once did I regret it. Their free "sysclean" download and install works independently of your system in Windows, SafeMode, or DOS...and may be run, when all you can do is get to a DOS screen, then to the install folder, etc..
