    I read somewhere here that AVG and Avira are better than Avast when it comes in detecting and preventing trojans, including banker trojans (both paid and free versions)?
    Is this true?
    Supposedly, Avira and AVG found trojans on the computer, while Avast found nothingo_O
    Is this true?

    I've heard that red oranges have more vitamin C than the regular orange oranges. Is this true? They are both oranges and they both have vitamin C, in the end it's really up to your preference which one you'll take...

    There is no definitive answer to you question. They all do the same task and when you count 10 trojans missed by avast! i can show you 10 trojans that are only detected by avast! and no one else. And the same can be said for pretty much every product out there. If you use and like avast!, just keep on using it. It's no worse than any other product. If you'll change products every time someone says that, you'll be changing them every 3 days and in the end you won't be any more protected than if you stick with just avast!. Sure i get disappointed by avast! sometimes but then again, i get amazed by it some other time. Also the "he said, she said" rumors aren't the best way to gather info how something performs...
