Avast is probably the most user-friendly free anti-virus, but detection rates aren't that good from what I've read. AntiVir is supposed to be have the best detection rate as a free AV, but AVG is the best overall.

There is some. But if u want to see which is the best for u.
1. Disable firewall
2. Browse porn/hacking/other that kind of sites for 1 hour
3. Scan with a few anti-viruses and see which one finds the most viruses

See some are going to say this and some are going to say that,
Diffrent experinces, good..or the bad,

Also its what is best for you/and your pc and your computer needs(also what you do on the comp)

Ive found AVG the best, ive tryed alot for that reason, that whats best for you and etc etc(what i said ^ up there)

AntiVir, Panda and couple of others i cant remeber i had nothing but troubles, also Norton i had few troubles,
