An updated "Best Antivirus" for 2010. Please use this as a reference when researching antivirus utilities. As time goes on, the poll can be updated to add further options.

Happy Voting.

My vote goes to Security Essentials. I can't see it on the list, though.

I've voted for Microsoft Security Essentials, but I have a quick question; why is Windows Live OneCare on that list, when Microsoft have discontinued it and replaced it with MSE?

I voted for NOD32. Microsoft Security Essentials is a close second for me, though.

I have no AV installed at all :) can't slow down PC however, I've tightened all INs and OUTs security via Firewall. All experimental stuff is done on VirtualPC. Like they do in airports, point of entry to your computer is the point of highest security threat.


But anyways, if I really had to go for AV (for some odd reasons, NOD32 here)

I think their tests and results are worth more than anyone's opinion

I've only had Norton and AVG 8, so my vote is solely based on my experience between the two.

Going with AVG.
