    Kaspersky has been dethroned. A lot of good AVs on the top.

    I don't understand why they don't let you select a range of months anymore. I'd rather look at the past 6 months, or period of time, than just one month.

    Does anyone know how the free version of Avira compares to the paid?

    A free AV (Panda) outperformed all the paid AVs save one (Bitdefender) and had less FPs than Bitdefender.

    Avira is definitely performing very well. It is odd to see Kaspersky for once not leading the pack...

    I don't know what AhnLab is, but every time I see one of these reports they are dwelling in the cellar. And by a wide margin. I don't know why they do this to themselves.

    Seems like Kaspersky fell a bit on this one.

    It still reached very respectable 99,3%. And with zero false positives. Something only 2 out of top 6 did...

    Do not believe in av-comparatives.

    Pretty impressive for Panda. Trying Panda Free on a few computers now instead of MSE. Haven't seen any pop ups or any nag screens. You don't even need to provide any information if you don't want to. Like that a lot. Not a huge fan of the Windows 8 type interface (metro), but the AV seems light.
