    If you are concerned about detection rate go with Command AV. FYI, both AVs are very light and easy to use.

    Whichever one sits best on YOUR system ;)

    Some information on Command here;

    and EZ AntiVirus;

    Both are ideal for low spec machines and have very little effect on system resources. EZ does better over at VirusBulletin, but recently Command is doing well.

    I have only used Command and I have been happy both with the program and the support.

    Trial the two and see which one you prefer.

    Command heuristic is more powerful.

    I would go with Vet ( ez anti virus ) and save my $ as its free and put the $ into a good anti trojan like TDS3 or bo clean or such . then you are pretty well covered.
    Vet has a better VB 100 track record.
    Or if you believe the above postings, about command, buy command anti virus and download Vet ( free for one year) and use one as a back up and the other as real time .
