    Which antivirus is the best for removing wormso_O?
    Is it KAV.
    Or could it be another one.

    How come there is
    antitrojans (mainly for trojansa)
    Antispyware (mainly for spyware/adaware/malaware etc..)
    Antivirus (For all)

    Now i know that the antitrojans and antispyware can remove trojans, spyware worms etc...
    but how come there is not a AntiWormo_O Mainly for removing Wormso_O

    Hey,

    Worms are classified as being Trojan/Viruses. :p Get an AT and AV it will solve most of your issues.

    McAfee is slightly better than KAV (mostly about 1% better) than KAV for worms, these two are the best AVs for worms.

    One day I'll develop an Anti-Worm just for you ;):p:)

    McAfee is slightly ahead of Kaspersky for Viruses, however KAV wins most tests b'coz its better at zoo Trojans and other zoo malware (excluding viruses of course ;))

    Therefore KAV is best for OVERALL malware detection :)
