What is the best antivirus (and preferably free) right now? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I has tried some title of Antivirus product, some of them is freeware also. When I tried the Antiviruses, I found out that it's not always freeware Antivirus is a bad product, and vice versa. Right now, the Antivirus I currently using is Avast! Antivirus home edition. Just want to get opinion about what Antivirus is the best right now to fight those pesky virus out there? I have read many sites that doing Antivirus "benchmarking", but I found a very different result in each sites (different sites = very different results). So I can't get any conclusion from those websites. Can you share your experience from using Antivirus?
