    Where can I get a subjective performance rating of various virus-scanners, etc, which are
    available. I hear a lot about AVG. I use PC Security Shield. How does it measure up?
    How and Where can I find out?

    I notice that they all get the highest rating for effectiveness. Are all these virus scanners equally effective at protecting a PC? It seems like there would be various ways to go about
    this so there would be varying degrees of effectiveness also. It is also obvious that the effectiveness of all of these products would be impacted by the thoroughness and currency of thier definitions files.
