    Hard to say which are "best". Do you mean only online (run through browser) or other on demand also?

    Emsisoft most of data are from Bitdefender's data base ,
    i guess the scan result will very close .

    I had a friend told me , if you want best detection rate , than use AKB , Avira、Kaspersky、Bitdefender ~

    But i think ESET also did pretty well .

    I agree, those were IMO best file detectors for long time now. And yes, it's mostly because of BD engine why I use EEK :)
