    eTrust EZ is better because

    1. It has good track records officially (Virusbtn and Checkmark).
    2. I have good experience with it, fast and reliable.
    3. You can get a free license for 1 year.

    I've been using CA as part of the ZA suite, and I'd have to say, it's one of the LIGHTEST AVs I've used ever. Only like a 5mb footprint on a very very old system.

    It's not that great for dangerous surfing, but for very normal home use, it should be fine.

    Personally id try both.AVG Pro has ad/spyware detection whereas EZ doesnt.There seems to be a distinct lack of options in EZ regarding the scanner settings i.e scan all files ,or just extensions,scanning in archives etc.AVG PRO has extensive options.It is lighter memory wise,but actual running with it isnt that much different to AVG.I havent really found any independent AV tests to show its any better than an"average" AV for detection ,as is AVG.The plus thinks going for it (imo) is the free yearly trial ,and the snooze function is a pretty good idea too.Heres a comparatives list ...

    Just make sure your running 'Ewido' in real time as i don't think 'EZ' handles Trojans very well.And we all know how dominate Trojans are at the moment.

    There is no need for separate file transfer scanning. Contrary to popular
    belief, eTrust is actually good in detecting trojans. However, if you are
    a risk taker while surfing then I'd suggest something with KAV engine like
    the free F-Secure or Active Virus Shield.

    AVG Professional would be my choice between the two.

    I have not used AVG Pro. I have used the free addition. I have also used the EZ AV. I would use the AVG Free instead of EZ AV but this is a close call. Soooo...I am just sure I would use AVG Pro instead of EZ AV. ;)

    If I had to choose between the two and I wanted my computer protected It sure wouldn't be with AVG. It would be with CA with vets scan engine. This is just my opinion but I have tried out both and have seen which is better on my computer.
