New AntiVirus Test Results Declares Best and Worst AntiMalwares

Spread the love

At this time of the year, almost every security software vendor has released their new line of security products for 2012. Most of them are claiming the crown: highest detection rate of Malwares, low false positives, speedy scans, zero-hour threat detection and removal, low resource consuming, easy navigation, bla bla bla. There is always one thing clear, how big the claim is, current and previous performances will not have much difference. The famous AntiVirus testing company AV-Comparatives.org has published its test results for 20 different AntiVirus vendors. The test has three levels: Standard, Advanced and Advanced+.

This new test from AV-Comparative has had freeware AntiViruses as well as shareware. Freeware AntiViruses which were tested are Avast Free AntiVirus, Avira AntiVir Personal, AVG Free AntiVirus and Panda Cloud AV. These freeware have scored well and, if we consider, their performance seems like slap for costly shareware like Norton, McAfee, etc. Avast Free AntiVirus, Avira AntiVir Personal and Panda Cloud AV scored Advanced+ and AVG Free AntiVirus stood at Advanced.

People pay their fortune to buy shareware AntiVirus considering them more reliable and advance compared to freeware AntiViruses. In reality this should happen, shareware AntiViruses should be more advance and reliable but AV-Comparative results show different story. These freeware AntiViruses, if not better, are not less than any shareware AntiVirus. We can easily overcome that minor difference by using any friendly AntiMalware like Emsisoft AntiMalware, Malwarebytes AntiMalware, etc. In fact, by using these extra security software with regular freeware AntiVirus, computer will be more secure.

Do all of them support 64 bit Windows 7?
It is well-nigh impossible to get a i5-based laptop with 32 bit Windows, so we can expect 64 bit to be the norm shortly, not the exception.
