    I think it's funny how tests like this seem to select the minority products, so to speak. Everyone I know has trash talked McAfee and TrendMicro. I've never heard of F-Secure or Norman. One would think if a product is good, you would have heard about it from someone.

    Well, actually. F-Secure has been around since 1988 (then as Data Fellows), and released their first antivirus in 1991 - they are quite large in the company-market in Europe. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-Secure)
    Norman have been around since 1984, they sell mostly to companies in the Nordic countries AFAIK. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_(company)
    I remember them both very good since my DOS-days (sweet Norton Commander-days :thumb: )

    ESS is a damn good suite. It may need some new features but it will sure as heck protect you. For me, there are only 3 suites worth buying. ESS, Kaspersky and Avast. The rest are just poopie in the diaper.

    For me, Kaspersky became crap the day they removed custom installation. If I would have to go with a suite that didn't allow custom installation I would say Norton's suite is the most complete and effective one.

    I thought you would have included Avira's as well.

    I myself love ESET and the Smart Security Suite. However if I didn't have ESET I would be using Online Armour ++. The firewall is top rated and it also comes with dual Antivirus protection. Strong combo in my book.

    this apparently only includes malware downloaded from websites or exploits.

    Malware with a low prevalence is unlikely to attack your computer
