    Click on 'Comparatives' at the top left of this page and then have a look at the online results for May and August this year; http://www.av-comparatives.org/

    Products that get an 'ADVANCED +' rating can be considered to worth investigating. I don't think these tests pay any particular to resource usage etc. There are other test sites that may produce different conclusions bit I don't have any links handy.

    For the record, I use NOD32.

    I'd tend to agree with the recommendation of NOD32.

    I'm running Kis7 and not having any problems at all.IMO this is as good as there is right now and it's light on system resources as well.What are you using for a firewall?
