    3] Auto-pilot mode for silent security.

    threshold to avoid any impact on your system’s performance.

    thank u admin

    Tirth11 years, 3 months ago

    All this is useless!
    THE TOP AV IS KIS 2011 Internet Security.
    It detected all viruses I threw at it including trojans, spyware, malware etc.
    Norton also detected all but it takes a lot of RAM. ESET was not able to detect many. Avira and Avast were also not able to detect all.
    I am a computer expert using KIS from edition 2009 to 2011 and I think it’s THE BEST. Ofcourse it also depends on your CPU Speed and your choice!

    SMN K R11 years, 3 months ago

    ESCAN also an antivirusn that is working well,it has the ability clear trojans etc.

    Adoboe Asiome11 years, 3 months ago

    I think you are all wrong, and you would be right when you meet Rising Antivirus…that is what i use and will always use, its the best, go to their webpage and just try it, you will feel the difference. thank you all.

    Someone11 years, 5 months ago

    Aruna11 years, 5 months ago

    Add COMODO Anti virus.. that too working well with free of cost..

    p0p0d@gr8â„¢11 years, 5 months ago

    KASPERSKY! i wish that kaspersky make their own free version of their antivirus like to AVG and Avira.. even it's perpormance and Database is not same with “kaspersky lab”.. because i very like that anvirus, when i try their trial version, i can't believe that it remove EASILY.. the worm virus that any antivirus that i try was failed to detect.. If they release a free Edition I swear that it will be downloaded million times in the first week only.. ^_^

    IM SOO HAPPY!11 years, 5 months ago


    GUNNER11 years, 7 months ago

    why avira is not included it is the best ’cause i tried all those 10 except for trend micro and in my own point of view avira is the most powerful you guys are very wrong to miss it

    Sherton Gibb11 years, 7 months ago

    Is ALL ABOUT your behavior, if you surf always in Dangerous sites. NO AV will help you against threats.In my Personal opinion. the ESET NOD32, “i use” are just Amazing. uses less resources from PC, and is quite good.

    I can Give you the one that i use. There is a link to it.

    Just Copy paste on your browser, and there it is… I hope i help you.
    Another thing you NEED to HAVE INSTALLED the WinRar or WinZip. to open the file

    Sherton Gibb11 years, 7 months ago

    The BEST AV. Is your OWNSELF. is ALL ABOUT surfing Behaviors. So they (Anti Virus) can BE Powerful but if you guys always surfing dangerous sites, NO Godamn SW will Help you againt threats. Personal Opinion. ¡¡ESET NOD32 are the BEST!!
    1. Low Resources usage (Almost NO other AV SW can do it)
    2. Early Threat Detection (Even before the files .exe can open NOD32 Block it)
    3. High Detection Threat (Unknown viruses,troyans,etc.. They just Can´t against these AV)
    4. False True Detection threat (Most AV don´t know how to deal with these alarms)
    5. Resident Shield (Almost AV have it include now)

    freez11 years, 8 months ago

    Wel The Truth is this as an computer tech by my side kasperksy is the best choice for Xp Vista or Windows7 u have gaming mode and a total security
    The other sites says diferent and they are right! picouz they see the price of the antivirus wel as u know kaspersky is not cheep

    If u dont know whats good Ask what expensiv

    Belive me its the best yet kasperksy internet security 2009 or 2010

    Ukraine11 years, 9 months ago

    That’s for sure!!! I had use many inti-virus software as Bit Defender, Kaspersky, Nod32, AVG, Dr.Web, Avira, Comodo and so on… and only with Avast I fill safe… second in my top 3 is Avira and third Comodo. Nod32 is nice but skips too much viruses…

    aimz11 years, 9 months ago

    In my experience Bitdefener was a little advanced but still good like Panda/Mcafee.

    Norton has always been resource heavy (meaning it uses a lot of your computers power to run in the background) even though it is good and very popular.

    My favorite would have to be NOD32 due to its small size, low resource usage, frequent updates. Looking for something new to try in 2010 on Win7 though.

    Guys please remember when you are looking at these review/Top10 sites, a lot of them are made for advertising certain programs and not necessarily the top10 in that order.

    This one seems to be based on polls, which is a fairly good indication based on a large population of people who hopefully have actually used these programs.

    addictedbysoft11 years, 10 months ago

    You forget Avira ,Avira is the toppest antivirus of the year.I tested all antivirus 2010 edition.I strongly recommend Avira security suite 2009.
    Avira Premium Security Suite

    Avira Premium Security SuiteComplete Security Suite with virus scanner, AntiAdware, AntiSpyware, AntiDialer, email protection (POP3), Personal Firewall, AntiSpam, proactive AntiPhishing, RescueCD, backup, WebGuard and more.

    Extremely high performance and detection capacity by using the latest technology, directly from Avira Labs. The Security Suite offers protection from both known and unknown threats, using world leading Heuristics to give you the maximum protection.

    The WebGuard protects you in real-time against DriveBy downloads and viruses, when surfing web sites that have been compromised or have malicious content on them.

    shebin11 years, 10 months ago

    I think bitdefender is the best antivirus,its real time protection is 100% better than any other antivirus software.

      Omar11 years, 8 months ago

      i heard Bit Defender is quite good, but there is no tech support for an ordinary pc user, i think when you have a problem with the software, it is not user friendly. But it’s still good.

    Prabodh Pavaskar11 years, 11 months ago

    I would say Kaspersky Internet Security is the most effective antivirus software available in the market. Its good for those are heavy internet users.

    geejo12 years, 2 months ago

    gosh…….u left out VIPRE…..cauz u didnt know abt that…… uses less resources same like eset nod 32 but has a better interface than nod 32 and anti malware protection…..

      john12 years ago

      yes you guys left out vipre which was #1 last year.Funny how its not even in the top ten this year ..hummm anyway i used to use bit def but what a resource hog that prog was..
