    I am going to need a bit of help here on this one.
    Generally most people have a few questions when it comes down to
    choosing their virus/malware scanners. I would like to boil things down
    and make it easy for newcomers without all the rabid fanboy crusades and such.

    Here are the variables:

    1.) Detection Rate(+/- False Positives)
    2.) Memory Footprint
    3.) Cleaning Ability(Based on raw data)
    4.) Virus Definition(Frequency of updates)

    I was hesitant to add sluggishness(Based on 1GB memory).
    It would be excellent to see a site that did the numbers crunch
    to crown the best products based on the above. I am sure we could
    get a lot of information from sites like av-test/comparisons/etc/etc.

    Going about it this way would be fair and the numbers would easily prove our point. Anyone interested? :thumb: :thumbd: :eek: :eek: :eek:
