Hi Experts,

I want to find the best anti-virus and malware protection software. I search the web for sites that rate anti-virus and malware software.  Once found, I don't always know who is behind them. Sometimes I wonder if  some of the sites have an alternative motive, such as selling more of their software.

What are 2 or 3 excellent, independent, credible web sites that rate anti-virus and malware software?

It's impossible to know the reasons behind a web site and it's information. My best bet would be Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_antivirus_software

I use AVG (on PC) or Kaspersky CD for offline cleaning. But ClamAV are another good AV.

Regards, Tobias
