    I used nod32 for awhile. It is among the best as per many tests and very light on resources last I heard. I personally use Viruscape 2006 and haven't looked back.
    avcomparitive.org I think is the well known testing site for great reviews of the well known AV's.
    Hope this helps.

    Why? Because this question is asked almost daily here. Just search the forums, read and decide what to use for yourself, everyone will give you a different answer because everyone has their own opinion.

    Well, it's the weekend and many of us have lives to lead. For example, even when I'm "logged in" here, I may not be at my machine or I may be preoccuppied with other tasks. Such is life on broadband.

    As for your question, if you are dealing with an old piece of malware, McAfee should have flagged it, assuming it was updated and configured appropriately. It's a well rated AV.

    However, it sounds like you do want to switch in any event, so head on over to av-comparatives.org and review the On-demand comparative from Feb 2006 and Retrospective/ProActive Test from November 2005. Any AV rated Advanced+ on either or both tests should be fine. That list is comprised of : AVIRA, BitDefender, Kaspersky, Kaspersky engined AV's (F-Secure, GData AVK, etc.), McAfee, NOD32, Symantec/Norton, and TrustPort. Download one of these, do a full uninstall and clean up of McAfee, clear out you Temporary Internet Files, reboot, and install the AV you selected and trial it. If you like it, buy it, if not, moved to the next on the list and repeat. Still feeling nervous? Download the trial for Ewido or purchase BOClean (no trial here, just a money back guarantee). Note: Ewido will revert to the free version if you don't purchase it. Finally, if you don't use a router, firewall, or Windows native firewall (assuming you run XP), do choose and use one of them.

    There are a number of other things you could do having to do with system hardening, etc., but the suggestions above can be put into use immediately by anyone.
