Kaspersky is rated #1 in detection rate and speed.  I personally use Norton(good but slow), but i do have a kaspersky machine, i'm pleased with it so far.

Hiya ,

Depends on what you are looking for really......

If you are looking just for a home machine, then I would suggest either Ewido or Webroot's SpySweeper.

SpySweeper has been constantly ranked as the number 1 Spyware Remover by PC Pro (Nov 2006), PC World (Oct 2006) and PC Advisor Gold Award (Oct 2006).

If you are looking on a corporate level, then I would suggest McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) and VirusScan 8.0i with the Anti-spyware Module.  This can be bought as part of McAfee Total Protection for Business Suite.

Wherever we come across a competitor, we remove it and replace it with McAfee.

With the comment about Norton and Kapersky above, I'd like to see proof of the Number 1 ranking for Kapersky please as I've never heard of them winning any awards like that.

With regard to Norton, it slows down the PC too much.  If you look at the problems in the Viruses section on EE, you will see that pretty much all the problems posted there have some involvement with Norton.  Don't use it........it's not worth it.

Just my thoughts

cheers

I'm still a tad bit sceptical (honostly), which is why i'm letting my brother try it out, he's always a sure-fire one to infect the machine.  So i'll see if kaspersky helps him out.  I haven't made my own decision yet.

Oh, ok, you're looking for ratings for home user software.....

Not my main area of expertise, as I specialise in corporate solutions.......Kapersky's not normally found in corporate organisations as it's not designed for large organisations over 100 users

Still makes me laugh that Norton came 10th.....why do people still buy this stuff ?

Let me know how you brother gets on breaking the system !
Cheers
