    G-Data has been around for quite a while. It is very popular in Germany and always figures on top in the German tests.

    ^ I too have heard a lot of it but never tried it.

    NOD32, Kaspersky seem to be way down!

    Yes, it would be interesting to compare this with other reports.

    There is Virus Bulletin that also does comparative reports, but unfortunately these cannot be accessed without paid subscription, except summaries that do not give much info.

    Last anti-malware comparative report from West Coast Labs (it also certified Microsoft Security Essentials) is dated September 2008. And can be found here - product test report. At least my favorite Avira is consistently at the top tier with them as well

    hi !

    thanks estra !

    another confirmation about AVIRA.

    im also running AVIRA, have used it together with MSE-beta, decided to keep AVIRA just because MSE was a beta, and since MSE has showed some strange behaviour, i think it was a good decision to keep AVIRA.
