    id choose avast. its far more configurable, free, and it does fairly well in the av-comparative tests.

    also i see ur now comparing etrust to avast? whereas u previously posted about avg pro.

    if ur going to ever ask about antivir, it would be my top choice. it has good heuristics and detection rates and its lighter than avast.

    I prefer Avast, I think Avast is lighter than Etrust if I am not wrong. :D

    i think etrust is lighter actually, but avast has several modules so it could be even.

    Why avast! doesn't have any Checkmark certifications?

    Read this http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=1488.msg8918#msg8918

    I personally believe that avast! Home offers better & stronger protection against malware (viruses, worms, trojans, adware, spyware, riskware) than eTrust (both Vet and Inoculate engine). eTrust Antivirus has been used in our corporate network, it offers good protection against ITW and other most dangerous malware but rather poor in Zoo malware (including adware, spyware, riskware).

    We've been considering to replace eTrust with AVG Network Edition (or other better AV solution) as AVG offers more protection against adware, spyware and other Zoo malware than eTrust, and AVG is also cheaper which is good for our corporate budget, with eTrust we have to use eTrust PestPatrol Anti-spyware separately.

    Avast or Etrust? Avast.
    Avast or AVG? Avast.
    I prefer AntiVir of the free av programs.

    avast! all he way. Superb tech support and very good detection.
    Works great out of the box but also offers loads of settings for those hardcore tweakers.

    I ran Etrust for a few years before I switched to Avast about 2 years ago. For me Avast wins hands down, and it's free.
