    Does anyone know of a website anywhere which lists the percentage of users using each firewall / antivirus programs?

    Something like:
    Nortons - 33%
    Kaspersky - 22%
    Nod32 - 10%
    No Security programs - 2% , etc...

    I would like to know which are the most used security programs in terms of percentage.

    Anyone know anywhere online i can get that information?

    Does anyone have an official list?

    I am looking for the % of internet users and what firewalls / antivirus programs they use rather than forum polls.

    Forum polls mean nothing in the scheme of things - especially since most forum users are going to be security savvy and go for unusual security solutions.

    What is the % of the common internet user - what security packages do they use?

    What are trying to accomplish?

    Are you writing new malware, so for infecting more machines you are searching for most used security programs? :argh:

    If you are "Average Joe" user and what the best security combo and for "showing" in front of your friends with : "Hey look, i have the best security applications", then in this case the forum polls are good enough for you.

    This is not as same as browser ratings.
    And nobody from security vendors will tell you the number of their current users.

    Nobody does. But if you are ready to pay for the research I can run it for you :)
