between the 4 listed, avast for its features and userfriendly. Comodo is the least user friendly.
Not to say avast doesn't have its fair share of issues and unecessary bundles which require the user to do a custom install.
Panda, has always been a hit or miss.
Qihoo 360, well I have my reservation towards this or any product released by its company, so will not comment further on it.

Avast for me :D

I find Comodo very intrusive, not user friendly
Qihoo 360 has a great detection rate but you can not delete the detected file if you want and is too much dependent on the cloud
Panda: didn't use it
Avast has a great detection rate, you can customize it they you want and light on system :rolleyes:

My vote goes to: COMODO Internet Security

COMODO Internet Security provides near complete and impenetrable protection, when used by users with at least a medium level of knowledge in computers and IT in general. It provides multiple robust and (almost fully) customizable levels of protection, which are all offered for a completely free, lifetime license (no "renewal" or registration required to use the product).
However, in many (if not most) situations, it can be quite obtrusive and it is notorious for not being user friendly and as such it requires a certain level of experience in computers and/or IT to use it properly and effectively.
But, like I mentioned above, in the hands of sufficiently experienced users, COMODO Internet Security can be one of the most powerful and versatile security solutions available.

Qihoo 360 Total Security has the best detection, and good and easy Gui

Avast haven't use this for over 5 years
Panda always gives me a BSOD on my machine
Comodo is to bloated and to difficult with its firewall (advanced users)

Its a very though competition from now and my vote goes to which it must considered the practical yet can easily cope up by majority of users.

Avast will be my vote this time because of how it revolves the overall concepts where nothing became unnecessary but generous, we can see in the way where performance may not be perfect like multi engine AV programs but its demands is not what typically advertisement claims only.

Qihoo on the other hand, even though contains multi-AV engine part but some performance brought issues for users who experience it.

Comodo IS still better in terms of advance users.

Qihoo 360 Total Security because of it's fast programme updates (bug fixing), very good customer service, good signatures, bonus features and including Avira + BD for free, additionally, fast reaction to new threats. Compared to Avast, I didn't notice system slowdown on agressive settings. Never tried Comodo or Panda though. Did not like the free version of Avira.
