    Want to know how well your antivirus software is protecting your computer? Trying to pick a virus scanner? Take a look at the list.

    The test was done August 15th to 25th of this year.

    I'm considering switching from Avast to Active Virus Shield, but I'm not sure yet. After all, AVS IS from AOL... but it seems to be a great program.

    As far as I know, it's un-biased. I can't find anything to indicate any bias.

    Ummm... what? :weird: I found this on Digg. The only thing that has to do with AOL is Active Virus Shield, which is basically Kapersky with AOL branding... so AVS can't be THAT bad.

    I switched to AVS because Avast! was using too much RAM. And so far, AVS seems like a good program... plus it only uses about 8000k of RAM.

    I just got Kaspersky Internet Security. Has a firewall and AV built in one.

    Has been great so far in keeping my PC clean and safe.

    Yep, it&#039;s supposed to be one of the best.
    I wonder if this list is still accurate... err wait, it&#039;s not even there anymore.
