    As far as I know,AVG is good at healing.And avast! has a feature which can restore computer's files and replace those infected files.

    I think DrWeb for sure, kaspersky, norton and eset (in safe mode most of the times). Norton maybe, but I don't have much experence with it.
    Yes, avast has VRDB (VirusRecoveryDatabase), but I found it useless. It will not be included in avast 5 I think.

    Today many malwares are very complex and dangerous: they install in a system drives, trojans, rotkits too.....I would not sure, neither satisfied, of a simple cleaning if my pc was serious infected.

    The best way IMO is to prevent any infection and to have a disk imaging software - saved in an external support - to restore if the pc was infected. May be I'm a bit paranoid :D but if my system was infected - serious infected I mean - before the image restoring I would format all. :D

    he has said he wants a complete realtime solution, although dr web cure it is very good for healing those stubborn viruses like virut, it isnt a realtime solution, if dr web antivirus has those same capabilities as cureit and livecd, then that would be the solution i think.

    McAfee, IMO, has always been very good at cleaning malware. Back in the old days of 2002-2003, I remember having dozens of incidents where a number of AVs would detect an infection but only McAfee would completely and properly (to a usable extent) clean the infection. Since that time AVs have come a long way, but I wouldn't be surprised if this remains one of McAfee's strong points.

    IMO Kaspersky (2009 and later), AVG, McAfee, Symantec (2008 and better), Dr.Web and Rising (yes, I said Rising) are good at cleaning infections (I mean removing registry traces, cleaning files, repairing system configuration changes, etc.)......:)

    As you all know I am fan of Rising (RAV, PC Doctor and Full Rising Internet Security) these programs do very good job cleaning or removing the threats of today. AVIR PE not bad I use that on wireless laptops more some desktops use it too with Comodo FW+Defense. Still comparing both Rising and Comodo+AVIR which also does a very good job protecting about 50/50. So RAV or RIS for antivirus protection AVIR PE close second if you set HIPS to the max though.

    Some have problems understanding the difference between REMOVAL and REPAIRING/CLEANING. They all just bin everything under CLEANING.
    But it's not like that.

    Removal means just deleting the infected file. ANY antivirus can do that. But repairing/cleaning infected files is something not many do well. And yes, McAfee is among those that do pretty well in cleaning file infectors.

    I agree with your choices, except for Bitdefender.

    From my experience in the field: Dr.Web :thumb: :cool:

    Remarkable: there is consensus on the Wilders forum.

    I agree with you, except for kaspersky that wasn't very stable. Bitdefender 2010 is very good in my opinion, it has very good detection.
