    Is anyone interested in this kind of contest?
    The deal is to vote and share the best GUI only by three point of view:
    1) graphic and aesthetic;
    2) user freindly and correct commands positioning;
    3) number of settings.

    Sometimes there are different sw with terrific GUI but very user friendly so we could vote and write up three different lists.

    1) graphic and aesthetic --BEST: Symantec 2008b - Spysweeper 5.5AV; WORST. AVG (terrific!)
    2) user freindly and correct commands positioning -- BEST: KIS 7.0, THEN: BD 10 AV;
    3) number of settings, BEST: KIS 7.0, BD 10, MOST SIMPLE (but usefull) F-PROT


    Sorry Guys.
    In my opinion is better to share screenshots too.

    Norton 2007 - great for simple users, and a lot of eye candy
    kis 7 - great for advanced users
    good taskbar icon - doesn't exist, i like f-secure because it shows the update progress
    Unpleasent GUI's: AVG, Dr-Web :D

    I hope this version was not the Virus Chaser you tried, Chris. Your picture shows the original DialogueScience developed edition of Virus Chaser. The most recent version of VC looks like this:

    BTW, where did you get that picture? :D

    the one you showed is the one i tried, but i couldnt find that picture :)

    i dont remember it being orange though, it does look better in orange so im glad i didnt select it as 'the worst'

    i didnt like the software tho, too much of a clone of drweb, but they just dont do it right.
    and i thought the spider icon was totally over-the-top, changing it to red instead of green, lol

    if they totally re-vamped it, but still used the engine of drweb, with some good marketing skills it could be vastly improved.

    My opinion:

    Best GUI: Norton 2008 beta, Avast! pro (skinable)
    Worst GUI: AVG
    Most settings: Avast! pro (i think most cofigurable AV), NOD32
    Least settings: Norton
    Best taskbar icon: Avast!, ESS
    Worst taskbar icon: Symantec, eScan

    :)
