    As the title says I would interested in knowing how the free Antivir performs compared to the paid version.

    For the paid version quite a few test results exist. But I haven't found one yet for the free version, needless to say a test in which both are compared.

    Pretty much the same in AV-comparatives tests. ;)

    For others it depends on the sample sets used. Sometimes the tester may use adware/spyware samples, and there the paid version will detect better because the ADSPY bases are not there in the free version...
