I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ALL Antivirus sucks.

That said, I've got experience with VIPRE and it's been about as good as any antivirus product.  (15 years ago, antivirus blocked/cleaned 99% of what was out there.  Today, I put that number at more like 80% - abysmal when you think about it.  Sure, one program may do 81% and another 78%, but in the grand scheme of thingss, anything less than upper 90s sucks.

Trend is pretty good at virus's but sucks at spyware. The built in spyware scanner has never removed anything for me. But the virus scanner is decent.
