  1. Very good post and love this comparison between different antivirus programs. I need good antivirus program for business computers. I have over 200 computers at my business place and need some good internet security program to secure the network. I guess, PC Tools or the Computer Associates Antivirus programs. Both seems to serve small business computers network. Thank you for this great comparison list.
    Mr. Chan.

  4. hi, very good article and very informative. i have a question. i have avg free trial version and i like it a lot. but to be on safe side, i just purchased the trend micro interent security pro as i read really good about trend micro. my question is that can i use AVG internet security and trend micro internet security together? or should i remove the free AVG first and then install trend micro?
    will appreciate your help. thanks

  5. @Suzana:
    Hi Suzana, glad you liked the “top ten antivirus programs” article.
    I will answer your question in detail so that if anyone else has a similar question(s), this will be a helpful resource.
    Internet Security programs are designed/programmed to control the defense and protection system of your computer and protect against virus, spyware, worms, trojans, malicious scripts and other harmful webware. In order to completely protect your computer system, it takes control of your computer just like a driver takes control of a car. Smart antivirus and best security programs like: PC Tools Security, CA antivirus, Trend Micro Antivirus, etc. are programmed to not only strengthen the defense system but also aggressively calculate the impact of visiting a website. It detects before a website even opens, whether or not that website contains any malicious codes. All in all, good antivirus and internet security programs are regularly updated to handle these complicated defense tasks.
    Now imagine, two drivers controlling the same car. Both of them will get into a conflict with each other, to take control of the car. Same goes with Antivirus programs. If you keep more than 1 antivirus on your computer, we may get into a conflicting situation. Both antivirus trying to take control of the defense system.
    So it is highly advisable to uninstall the old antivirus and then install the new one. In your case, it is advisable to remove/uninstall AVG free edition first and then install the trend micro. Trend Micro is a very good internet security program, specially their Internet Security Pro.
    Have fun and stay safe!

  6. I’m a big time Trend Micro fan! Recently, my computer got infected with the Conficker worm and I had tough time removing the conficker virus from my computer. Trend Micro is awesome at removing any virus/spyware. I purchased a full year subscription of the Trend Micro Internet Security Pro as I needed the best internet security program. So thats it, my computer is safe now and I can work on my computer without worrying about the latest virus threats and other problamatic websites.
    Dev.

  7. Damn, my computer is infected with the conficker worm or conficker virus, whatever it is. I know it is one of the latest virus which is infecting millions of computers. So, which antivirus do you recommend is best against conficker worm? Which antivirus I should purchase to remove conficker virus from my computer? And how do you remove it, what steps should I follow to remove it? Would appreciate your help.
    Please help me!

  8. Hi Christina,

Trend Micro provides best security against conficker virus and helps removing virus from user’s computer. You don’t have to do anything, Trend Micro will do everything to remove the infection.

    Once installed, run a full system scan and Trend Micro will take care of the conficker virus issue.
    Andy.

  9. Actually, I was looking for top ten free antivirus programs of 2009 and landed up on your website. I see you have very nice top ten lists and I think Computer Associates Antivirus and Kaspersky Antivirus are two great antivirus options I’m looking for. I have a heard a lot about them and many people have recommended to purchase Computer Associates Antivirus program and your review shows that it is the second best antivirus. I am purchasing my one year subscription, now I can surf the web without any worries. Thankyou for your recommendations.
    ~ Laura from Detroit/MI ~

  10. Excellent list of top ten antivirus for 2009! The list highlights the top antivirus software for 2009. I like PC Tools, CA antivirus, ESET Trend Micro, AVG, Kaspersky and couple of other internet security programs. These are well known antivirus software and best for home computers, business computers and enterprise level computers & intranets. IMO, the best is PC Tools antivirus & internet security.

  11. I think BIT DEFENDER TOTAL SECURITY 2009 is the best antivirus program as compared to all of the above mentioned antivirus programs because I have already used the PC Tool antivirus, CA, ESET, AVG etc. 2 months ago, a virus infected my laptop and it changed the ‘extensions’ of all the programs in my laptop. Some other malware also infected the HDD partitions….. when I double click on the HDD partitions, my laptop/notebook was restarting or shutting down immediately. I used ESET NODE 32 Antivirus but id did not detect any malware. Then I installed AVG internet security 8.0, the results were same. Then I installed PC tool, CA, Norton internet security 2009, Avira, but they didn’t detect any viruses. Then I Installed KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2009, it detected the virus but it was unable to remove the viruses. I am consulting this problem with my friend and he asked me to install BIT DEFENDER TOTAL SECURITY 2009. I installed it and it detected virus after the complete scan and removed it like a charm. Now my laptop is free from any type of virus and its working smoothly. THANKS to BIT DEFENDER. Thanks a lot!

  12. Very good lists of top antivirus programs of 2009. I must say, that the CA antivirus has been the best antivirus software for me so far. CA is easy to install, easy to configure and most of all, very light on the system. I had some virus problems earlier and CA took care of the virus beautifully. Thankyou for providing this great list of internet security programs.

  13. Very good list of top antivirus software of 2009. I like PC Tools a lot because it is multi-purpose software. It takes care of virus, trojans, spyware, malware, spam, and more. It actively updates itself and fights back hackers. I can also tune the registry with it. My computer has been super fast since the time I installed PC Tools. It is the BEST antivirus software.

  14. There is a reason why a lot of users support PC Tools security. PC Tools recently won a lot of awards and it is one of the MOST recommended antivirus program. Actually, it is all in one antivirus software. Like Villiam said, it does many things, specially the registry tuning is a wonderful tool. All viruses, spyware and Trojans leave nasty keys in the registry. With PC Tools monitoring the registry actively, you can rest assured that the most important part of your operating system is safe. If viruses, spyware, trojan, malware, etc. can’t write to the registry, they won’t become active. This is why I prefer and recommend PC Tools antivirus. Even if a virus somehow gets on your computer, PC Tools will not allow it to write anything in the registry. This ensures a great protection! BEST of BEST antivirus and registry tuning software! Good top ten lists.

  15. very nice antivirus reviews and certainly PC tools is really good to handle viruses and spyware. PC tools also offers registry mechanic and other tools to tune up your PC.

  16. Symantec’s Norton Antivirus has been added to the top of the list as per many requests we received through email. Norton Antivirus 2009 is one of the most popular antivirus program. We apologize for not including Norton Antivirus in the list of top ten antivirus and we have taken it to the first spot. We didn’t know that Norton is still a favorite of millions of computer users across globe. If there is any other suggestion for this list, please feel free to leave a comment or write to us through the Contact us page.
    Regards.

  17. PC TOOLS! Easy on computer but heavy on blocking viruses. My son installed it on my computer and found it to be the best. Earlier I had McAfe but it made my computer crawl like a snail. Not the case with PC tools. It quietly does it job without making computer slow. So, my vote goes to PC Tools antivirus. Good review.

  18. Computer Associates antivirus is THE BEST. period.
    I haven’t tried too many antivirus software but I don’t think there is any need of trying them. I’m pretty much happy with CA antivirus. I don’t do any heavy programming, but I do play online games and CA antivirus is the best for gaming purposes. It doesn’t slow my computer, it doesn’t bother me while updating and it doesn’t come with heaps of mumbo jumbo options. It is simple, straight forward and easy to install.

    By the way, I won’t recommend anyone to purchase just the antivirus, I would recommend to purchase complete CA antivirus internet security package which comes with antivirus, firewall, antispyware, antispam, antimalware, etc. Everythat that you may need to protect your computer against virus, spyware, hackers, etc.

    Gregory.

  19. Good list, I am thinking of purchasing the ESET nod32 antivirus. And this is not the only list where ESET is ranked high. I read a news a few months ago and as per that news, ESET does not slow down your computer at all. If that is true, I am off to purchase the subscription.
    Thanks for the informative article on best antivirus software 2010.

  20. I am a computer science BE graduate. I am doing my project in the area of advanced security. It involves protection against viruses. I found Kaspersky Antivirus is the best evolving security technology. They use an efficient scanning algorithm in their new 2010 version.

  21. Have you ever checked out Sunbelt Software’s Vipre- I have received a ads from them about their quality and speed and wondered if they are as good as they claim to be?

  22. wow!!! thats why i like to visit here!! alot of testimonies!
    for me?i like most of it,i also like avira!it identifies hacker! i also used ESET 4 last month, but IT CANT EVEN REMOVE A RECYCLER!& trojan backdoor.exe, so i shifted to BIT DEFENDER! THE BEST! it hit any joints of the virus!hehe so let me try the trend micro..is it good?or PC tools?

  23. Hi Fahad,
    I’m not sure why the Author didn’t include McAfee, there has to be some reason. I personally, have never used McAfee antivirus, so can’t say whats wrong with it. May be, you can write a review of McAfee and let everyone know what you think about it. Feel free to register and share your thoughts.

  24. Ashley
    May i know why avira and avast where not included in the review? I used both software and they seem ok. Can you also come up with a detailed review for both for comparison with the others. Appreciate reply. thanks.

  25. I have been using CA ISS 2009 with resonable amount of satisfaction. Off late I have downloaded, Microsoft Security essentials. It has not apparantely caused any conflicts though Microsoft Security essentials removed a serious threat of VB.Inject.exe. I have also downloaded a paid version of PC Tools Registry mechanic. My system seems to be running better now. Your views please. Also my CA ISS is due for renewal in August 2010. Shall I replace it with PC Tools security suite as you have rated it higher than CA. Shall look forward to your considered advice. Thanks

  26. I was using kaspersky internet security 2010 and kaspersky internet security 2011 was introduced and i upgraded to it…im really regreting about the upgrade nw.the kis 2011 that i installed cannot be uninstalled and it is very slow.it is making my laptop very slow when the windows is starting up…kis 2011 is useless and making me frustrated and hating the software…so dont waste ur time and money by buying kaspersky 2011…

  27. Actually, recently I’ve found another way to speed up my poor PC, the software “tuneup360″. It’s very easy to handle and of course very powerful, my friends and I all use it now, maybe you can have a try.

  28. I had been using PC Doctor /Tools before,somehow my computer got infected and my daughter gave me a new Dell 64 bit. I still had over 8 months of my subscription of PC so I tried to install it, did not work, cost me over $150 to get the new PC working (currently without antivirus). The techs told me that PC Dr/Tools was junkie and I should be using McAvee??? You are saying PC is one of thebest? Who do I believe? Or, maybe PC doesn’t work with Windows 7, on a 64 bit PC? I really need to have protection, but don’t know what to choose and don’t want to end up with the problem that never really got resolved from this past fall…help.

  29. Hello Edie,
    Sorry to know about the computer problems. I can understand how frustrating it gets when computers don’t work as desired.
    We are currently testing the top ten antivirus 2012 and ESET Internet Security will be taking the top spots. The reason, ESET is continuously working to improve their security software and they heavily test their software on different computer systems and on different operating systems.
    I understand, your computer tech advised you to install McAfee, however, the only reason I do not recommend McAfee: it makes a computer system very slow.
    If you wish to enjoy working on your computer, go with ESET Internet Security or BitDefender Internet Security software.

    - Andy Whittal.
