TrustPort haven't used it so i can't say.

GData is a good software but needs improvement.Heavy on old systems even though it has improved lately.

Emsisoft the lightest and very good out of the box protection.A very good choice for protecting your system.

Dr.Web also very goo but needs some tweaks to provide better protection.
A very good product for protection but a bit heavy on old systems.

In my opinion GD, EAM and DW are good products and they will protect your system.If you like to make some tweaks you will have fun with Dr.Web.

I vote Dr. Web first, Trustport second.

Dr. Web is unique, and quite strong and doesn't use the $2 hooker of AV engines (Bit Defender) which is a big positive IMO. Emsisoft is good, but I had to drop it, way too many FP's and some web blocking that was screwing up a lot of stuff. I like it but hesitate to recommend anymore. Trustport I have used off and on. It looks a bit lame, like some kid in paint made the UI, but it's pretty strong and lightweight despite the engines.

Out of these products Emsisoft seems to be most promising with nice GUI and protection capabilities but if i want to spend money on a security product i would get myself Kaspersky internet security.
I heard that Kaspersky zero day protection sucks.

But here is he thing most AV users are set it and forget type of users,plus why is its zero day protection is turned off.
Kaspersky's "zero-day" (anti-exploit) protection is a part of the System Watcher module and is turned ON by default.

There is no such thing as "zero-day" malware protection. The terminology "zero-day" applies to exploits and not malware - but people have perverted its original meaning. The industry is mostly at-fault for mixed-use of terminology that sows nothing but confusion. When users read 15 different articles with the same terminology applied in 5 completely different contexts then it is no wonder there is so much user confusion.

It is just like some people do not know the technical difference between anti-exploit and exploit prevention.

But you see KIS is missing like a sandbox or a HIPs which something nasty like wantocry can ruin the pc and kill KIS as well and trust me i know what zero-day protection is a HIPS,BB,sandbox and VM.
