This following thread I'm linking to will also help. My last post has a link to the latest test results performed at the end of 2005.

See here: What Anti-Virus Program are you running now? (Extreme Poll)

On the actual test results page, you can go back as far as 2002 and view which anti-virus programs have been leading the field in actual, virus testing. Just look under "Comparative tests of antivirus programs" from the left column.


I agree with Van though - (3) Average. Your computer will be vulnerable to a few instances.
