    Very interesting results so far.

    **As of 8th December 2004**
    Trojanhunter is the most popular
    BOClean and TDS very popular
    Ewido is not very popular at all.
    PestPatrol seems to have a little fan club all of it's own.
    There are lots of people who don't even bother with one. Free or otherwise.

    Pick the bones out of that little lot.

    One observation i have is that a lot of people don't use one. When there are good free anti-trojans available, it seems odd that people don't use one for on-demand scans only. It's not like they use resources real-time is it!!! Some people are very very odd...

    Not really, when applications such as KAV have a good reputation for detecting trojans in on-demand scans.

    That poll means nothing. As you noted, the majority don't use one at all. Only 262 people have voted at all and 67 of those don't use anything, several marked "more than one" so it's really a worthless poll in my opinion.

    Let's not make a big deal out of it - it's just a poll. You'll find those everywhere scattered around countless forums etc. Nice for those who do like that sort of stuff but apart from that of no importance at all ;) .

    regards.
