Not Every AV is Good! Which is the Worst AV You've Ever Used? In My Opinion, Iobit Malware Fighter is the Worst. It claims to have Bitdefender's Engine and Anti-Ransomware Engine but It didn't even Protected Me against a Adware!

I would have to agree Iobit Malware Fighteris a winner in being the worst. Especially when it first came out, not sure what it is like these days. I never will have here again. ;)

Back in the days, McAfee was the worst for me, due to its high RAM/CPU usage, sluggish interface, Internet Explorer addon was also a trouble, their "please buy more" pop-ups and of course the nightmare malware removal/uninstallation process.. Never again. Currently happy as a long-time Comodo user :)

p.s : But I was truly in love with Avast! version 4, with its gory alert sound. :)

Kaspersky was the worst i used..
Resource eater And bad protection.
Wich version? The new ones are realy light and there is no bad protection on kaspersky.. They never had bad protection or bad times. They are always on the top of the list when it comes to protection. They have way more protection than ur lovly avira, at any time.

Intel Security/Mcafee. It's notoriously trashed by it's own developer, John Mcafee.

On Mcafee being renamed Intel Security:

""You have no idea how glad I am about that. It's become the worst piece of SW on the planet. You cannot uninstall, scans all the time, slow as sh*t, I'd have fired them, thank goodness I've freed from association with that"" (Source)

if you look in the malware samples of @harlan4096 's tests, you can find it to be the best of all.
maybe only Symantec's Endpoint solution did better/similar to Kaspersky when it was being tested by an other user. Too bad Symantec Endpoint and Norton is being developed by two different groups even though they're technically the same company.
