    We all know that there is no perfect av and every solution have their weakness and strengths, so let's play some games. All you have to do is select some parts of different products to create the perfect antivirus. A puzzle of some sort, here are some example pieces: support, heuristics, signatures, speed, stability, update frequency.. etc. figure out new pieces if you want ;)

    My "av" would have the signatures of KAV, heuristics of NOD32, speed of NOD32, stability of Dr.Web, update frequency of Dr.Web and GUI of F-secure. :D

    I would go for:

    *signatures of KAV
    *heuristics of Avira
    *speed of NOD32
    *low false positives of NOD32

    I dont know about GUI though...

    All the hard working is all I care. :) Doesn't a product deal with all the parts for the most protection they could offer? Game is never over; it evolves with time.

    GUI should be the same as NOD32 2.7 - I'm not a big fan of the candy looking AV's out there..

    My perfect AV would have no blacklists or heuristics and use sandboxing.

    Well what do you know, I've aready got it but it ain't called an AV!:D

    Hello,
    Since all anti-virus programs are more or less equal to me in terms of detection or removal, what remains is the interface, speed, lag, system impact, stability, so the vote goes for AVG au naturale.

    okhere goes:

    kavs signatures
    nods heuristics
    nortons fp rate
    drwebs stabilty, size of updates, com usage and size of the actual program
    kasperskys virus submission
    nods scanning speed
    kasperskys packer support
    vba32's program update frequency
    avgs antispam
    fprots price

    something like that would be quite good.

    That would be pretty much my choice, except I would have the KAV GUI over Avira's. I will hopefully change my mind about the GUI when Avira's new GUI is released soon. :thumb:

    And also Avira's low resource usage.

    Avira's price, heuristics and signatures
    NOD32 low rate of FPs and scanning speed

    This is my choice. :)

    "...too many cooks ruin the brew!" Stick to a couple or even one (of each category) only, best choice is what you - as an end-user - felt most comfy with! ;)

    Some sort of mix between BitDefender, NOD32, and Kaspersky. Either BD 08's or NOD32 2.7's GUI.

    We'll produce and market this as the PC Wilders Anti-Malware "Ultimate CSJ Edition" :D
    For $29 and 5 computers covered, you have the industry's best anti-malware software and 24/7 support forum out there.

    :D 'miyagi'... you or whoever concocted this brew of incorporating what CSJ had mentioned as his 'ultimate hybrid dream' will end up being sued for "Conflict Of Interests"! ...hahahaha, ahem... Funny,

    ... But i am contemplating of writing a ruby-shelled triple-threading (assembler based) 'incorporator' app that will allow 'combining' a maximum of two well-noted industry-leading ondemand antiMalwares (as source, instead of AVs) for a start and release it as Public GNU.

    I think nowadays, AVs can't take the fast evolving infective environments that we are living on.
