    I think Dr.Web is quite good.You can try Dr.Web CureIt! A FREE anti-malware utility to see its' detection rate.

    yes lol.panda was to resourcefull u need to delte strings its in my other thread somewhere, I dont mind this Dr Web.. its light as Avast but finds more things... I have hotmail coming through incredimail so not sure weather i need that spider mail, with the email thing going too? or i just need the gaurd?? as im not using POP email?..... do i just put delete in the settings if find a virus?? whats the best settings for it thanks... MD

    btw it found 5 viruses that Avast missed trojans and Macro's !! must admit never tried it but quite impressed with Dr Web!!
    although the av comparisons have me stumped says standard and Avg is excellent hymmmmm seems avast is better to them?

    No.

    There're no antivirus that can detect everything, Dr.Web may find some malware avast!'s missed, and vice versa, avast! may find some malware that Dr.Web's missed in the other day.

    AVG may catch some malware that NOD32, Kaspersky, McAfee, avast!, AntiVir don't even find, who knows?

    maddawgz, if you don't use POP3 then you can disable spidermail. Deleting
    isn't always a recommended step. Trojans can be deleted on sight but it
    might also be a false alarm. That is why we have the quarantine facility. Sending the file for further analysis is the best step.

    I agree with you TAP, but Dr.Web has heuristics. There is a huge difference
    between real world and the testbed used by certifying authorities. Heck,
    even the ITW list might be defective. All certifying authorities are providing
    a comparison result with their perspective. That doesn't mean I'm bashing
    Wildlist or IBK or ICSA. All I want to say is that IMHO there is no system
    in this world which can show us the *EXACT* real world scenario of malware
    infection.

    A word or two from the experts on this will be appreciated.
