    The best of all worlds.
    Can give you a strong indication of FP's, or not.
    May not be what you meant, though.

    I meant on thorough scanning of pc rather than specific files.

    Kasperksy, for ease of use, detection levels and scanning is the one I normally use.
    Panda activescan's good too, not as good detection but picks up a lot of unknown malware as 'suspicious', only problem with Panda activescan is the virus signature files it downloads onto your computer aren't properly encrypted, several AV's detect one of panda's signature files as W95/bumblebee virus...
