    rather than simple detection imo i think this is just as important as detetection. if it cant remove what it finds then imo what good is it!! is there anywhere to find more about the different av's and their removal rates? thanks in advance

    according to the german chip magazine 12/2007 (tested by av-test.de) are the removal rates of active malware
    files/registry:
    Symantec 70%/70%
    F-Secure 60%/60%
    Kaspersky 50%/60%
    Panda 60%50%
    AVIRA 60%40%
    BitDefender 50%/30%
    GDATA 50%/10%
