This link should help you in deciding on either Emsisoft, or Avira.p.s: I think most people including me don't choose an AV by having in mind that it will collect their data but how good is going to protect them. User privacy i think is a secondary reason for choosing an AV but from what i have learned here in this forum it should be among the primary reasons.
So it's time for me to start doing what i am learning here
p.s.2: Who do i choose? Emsisoft and Avira
We run the software because its protect us from emerging viruses and Malware, but this forum asking question on trusting on regarding the Privacy matter. So we might have different view on that.I find this thread absurd...You trust whichever anti-virus you choose to install and run.Why on earth would you run any software if you did not trust it.?
