    Right now i dont like any of the AV"s about? anyone else..Antivir 10 has some issues removing things and updating, I've gone back to AvG i hope it's not as laggy, i miss the days of avg 7.5, why cant they make another one like that o_O o_O o_O o_O o_O, just sit in the corner and be quite with good detection, not bloatware. Yeah yeah i know Eset is small, but i hate it's GUI. I think malwarebytes should make an AV.

    I agree about Eset's Gui.

    My point is that you stated you hate all AVs but you only listed 3.

    Have you tried them all? G-Data could be a good option for as a quiet AV with good detection rates.

    I should clarify free AV not paid. Yes had a shot at Avast, was to big there GUI LOL, took up 1/2 my screen, if it had been smaller perhaps

    The GUI took up half your screen! Now we know you are concerned with the truly serious issues.

    All GUIs are small when they're not on the screen, which is 99% of the time (for me anyway).

    If YOU want a small GUI with Excellent Detection Rate, then i'll suggest you to have Panda Cloud AV.. It is a light Anti-Virus and won't take too much system resources...

    If YOU don't rely on AV's then i also suggest you an AV with no real-time protection, but it does have Excellent Detection Rate with fast scanning feature...It is Hitman Pro

    PS:- Both of these AV's don't need regular update, as because both of these are using In-Cloud technology.. :D

    I hate automatic delete mechanism.
    Why antivirus(panda,norton) delete my files without ask me?
    So why delete? why not block access?

    You and me both pal. It saddens me that so many rely on blacklisting and even pay money to support an industry that tries to protect its customers with an inherently flawed model.

    That said, I would recommend you try Prevx. I find it to be a sophisticated solution which incorporates blacklisting as part of a comprehensive approach to combating even zero-day malware. Prevx is, of course, the perfect compliment to a whitelisting solution or even HIPS. Prevx's money back guarantee, in which they will remotely clean your PC of malware in the unlikely event that their software cannot do so, reflects the confidence they have in their product.

    It's so funny to read you every time with all this prepotency because you think that you PC is safest because you paid for the AV. :D :D
    jajajaja

    I am not aware of any reputable test that does not dispute that. I had rather rely on expert testers than someone who is mad at the AV world.:)

    I don't think nor I wrote that my computer(s) are the safest because I use paid AV product .
    In my everyday work I see numerous infected computers - the majority use free Avast , MSE , sometimes AVG .

    I don't trust organisation when they give some free AV a high rating because our clients who use Avast or AVG are always infected .

    Users with Kaspersky or Norton are never infected . Believe me or not , I just came from a client who has MSE installed (from friend) . I had to spend 1 hour there cleaning the machine to return it back to a usabable state. A paid Norton 360 helped me fix the problem , not Avast or AVG.


    jajaja ... may be too funny for you but reality is not funny.

    i do not think, free avs are the problem. most its the user.
    - 3 torrent programms.
    - all software cracked
    - when he/she has an paid av, this is also cracked :d:d
    - no windows updates
    - av not uppdated
    - users klicks all what he is seeeing
    this is all what an infected pc needs.
    aja not to forget, i see on 99 % of this:
    - alkohol, daimon tools and all this programms.
    0 day malware is not needed on this pcs.

    Agreed, I HATE this. I have dumped more than 1 product for this very thing.

    Only time will tell how the “free versus paid” debate is resolved. However, from a common sense business perspective, it seems that the resources required to successfully fight malware are becoming increasingly intense -- an expense that can ultimately only be funded by a large base of paying customers, if it is to remain “leading-edge.” Consider what it must cost, for example, to run the Symantec Global Intelligence Network:

    Take a look at the photographs of one of Symantec’s Security Operations Centers here.

    I'm not quite sure what you're looking for then. The GUI is perfectly normal sized and i'm using a 19 inch LCD screen with 1280x1024 resolution.
    I'm also using avast! on 9 inch netbook (1024x600) and i don't have any problems using it.
    It's not like you're gonna have its interface open all the time.
    So complaining about this is rather funny. Especially since the interface is no bigger than any other.
