    There is no AV that isn't spying on it's users, except Emsisoft :D I would trust Emsisoft more than others when it comes to privacy :cool:

    There is no best AV.......
    Everything goes around 2 things:
    - What's your general behavior with your pc ( clicks, downloads, pirate software, torrents, porn, cracked games etc....)
    - How strong is your machine (ram, cpu etc....)

    i will be happy to answer to your question when you will first give a honest answer to these 2 adove.

    You have a very strong Computer.

    My recommendation: Kaspersky.

    If you hate tweakings and would like out-of-the-box protection, then EAM is your best choice, because KIS and ESET require many additional tweaking to get the most protection.

    If you like the least notification, and least decision-making upon threat detection: EAM again.

    But if you love to tweak and to fully boost protection, then KIS is your best choice. (also with COMODO, though not listed.)

    Todos me parece buenos Los problemas no son AV. El problema es, cuál es la mejor para alguien tipo de usuario o para mí hadward. Cuál me conviene más
    I share your idea. Therefore it does not depend on the AV but on the user and the power of your computer.(y)

    I'll spare you the traditional (but true) "there is no best antivirus". All the products you mentioned are top notch and provide excellent protection. It is then up to the user to try and decide for himself, as each products has it's pros and cons. Personally, i would say Emsisoft is the best. Eset is also excellent. But that's just my opinion, based on my experience, and on my hardware.

    As i often say, the best is still to try it out for yourself. You'll get some experience, forge you own opinion and get a few months of free premium AV along the way with the trials ;)

    Your machine is pretty strong. There will be no performance issues using whatever AV.
    If you like to spend some money then go with Eset or Emsisoft or Kaspersky or Bitdefender.
    If you like free AVs then go with Avast as it is a complete product and it offers too much for free.

    They are all just as bad (or good whatever u wanna call it) one day they will all fail and leave you alone in the darkness.
    Locking your system completely down, is the only option if you want to survive in this crazy world.

    btw: i did not vote because we already know the outcome right? we only poll this like 3 times a week so it's quite obvious :LOL:

    for me it is Eset and Emsisoft.
    but everyone can have a different opinion.
    everything depends on the setting of the program and the capabilities of its equipment.

    I would go Avira - but i have something better i have SecureAPlus with multiple engines/database with Avira :) but i use it on o/d cause my real time is HIPS/SRP + Virtualization layer
    worth to use AV/scanners in real time.

    Kaspersky?? i dont have trust to this company....... When i were younger i tired compule time Kaspersky - mostly to heavy for system, but if you had solid pc half programs had all time more troubles compatiblity then rest av... now after years yet they try too much spy and know about you... I spend to much time for hardeing w10 and off spying feature to install. next spy :<

    Emsisoft have sux detection ... ratio he have good summary score only becasue he block on user depends but if you will allow it he will not find it how rest AV does cause sux detect ratio.

    This thread needs an all of the above option... There is no best AV they offer similar levels of protection for the home user. There is malware out there that will bypass all of them.

    which anybody with common sense will click "block" unless they are happy clickers... but last few months we sat EAM to auto-resolve by default, so those result are now obsolete.
