These are just general recommendations that most MT members can generally agree upon:Note - system Performance isn't a issue for me, i just want recommendations for the most powerful anti-virus.
Norton gives you a virus-free guarantee, if your computer is damaged by malware and Norton missed it they have to compensate you.Of the four AV's you've mentioned, I use Norton. It is light and has very decent detection. I use it for about 4 years and I am very happy with it. Comodo is very good if you configure it the right way and on top of that it's free. I've never used Kaspersky but it has very strong detection according to various tests. Bitdefender is know for it's false positives, but again an excellent choice with lots of extra's.
They are all winners, but according to my experience, I like Norton the most
Out of the above:
1.) Norton - Virus-Free guarantee and very good detection
2.) Kaspersky - very good detection
3.) Bitdefender - good detection with quite a few false positives
4.) Comodo - medium detection with low protection
In my opinion
1.) avast! Premier Anti-Virus with advanced settings on
True. There are many AVs with Bitdefender engine. In fact, it's not on the list, but I would recommend Emsisoft Antimalware.Another reason to not choose for bitdefender is that there are lots of AV's with bitdefender engine for free now (Qihoo for example), so no need for paid Bitdefender. (there is even bitdefender free)
If you want great protection + know how to tweak settings + don't wish to buy anti-virus = Comodo ISNote - system Performance isn't a issue for me, i just want recommendations for the most powerful anti-virus.
I think I'm going to go with Kaspersky, thanks.My personal recommendation is Norton or Kaspersky. Both won't disappoint. Comodo might drive you crazy if you want all it can give, and Bitdefender is buggy and sometimes heavy on system. I've had Bitdefender crash many times. I'd stay away from it.
