    Hi, as I don't maintain a VIRUS COLLECTION I have no chance to review the detection rates of the following AV products, but I would like to ask everybody to contribute opinions, both concerning the detection rates and other aspects of the programs.

    Antidote SuperLight (freeware with Kaspersky engine as far as I can see...)
    FireAV (www.fireantivirus.com)
    Virusbuster (www.vbuster.hu)

    Virusbuster has earned some VB awards...anyway, so any experience?

    Antidote SuperLight is a on demand only scanner which is using the KAV engine. It is very feature limited. Might be a good choice for a second or a third anti virus.

    About FireAV I can not say anything. This is the first time I ever heard about this program.

    Virusbuster has won some VB awards but overall it seems not to be a very good anti virus program.

    VirusBuster or VirusStriker is not that bad. More or less this product isn't at its mature stage...Not recommended at this moment!!!
