I am working on a friend's computer that had Microsoft Security Essentials, but got infected anyway.
I have looked at http://www.av-comparatives.org/
and it's report.. http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_od_aug2010.pdf
I have looked at:
Avira Antivir and Avast seem to stand out. However, the thoughts that come to mind are they seem to be a bit subjective and also point-in-time as software and virii change.
However, what is a interesting is there is also a "shot gun" approach..
What is interesting is reading the AV-Comparitives report is that is lists Norton/Symantec as being a contender..
Then, to remove an infection, wind up having to use Malwarebytes, ComboFix, or Dr. Web Boot CD..
I have also read about using a tool like ThreatFire as well..
I apologize if I seem like I am bouncing around while writing this..
To my question:
What is the best AV/Malware Tool out there?
Is the shotgun approach needed or necessary?
