    Better for what?

    Protection against viruses, protection against trojans, stability, use of resources/memory, support?

    Further, are you talking about the security suites which contain the AV AND Firewall?

    If you posted back listing your computer spec and what you are looking for in these 2 AV's you may receive more specific answers.

    I'm talking about the Security Suites.

    And I want to know which one is better in antivirus and trojan detection, as well as the one more steady.

    If you have a 'newish' computer, F-secure is probably the better option of the two for overall malware detection because of its Kaspersky engine.

    If you have an older computer, you may find F-secure slowing you down and therefore here Trend Micro may be the better choice.

    You need to trial the 2 AV's and see which one suits your system best. F-Secure may well give better protection but this is no good if it slows YOUR computer down to a crawl.
