I don't know any anti virus software package good enough to tell them apart from each other
AVG. It has won awards, including the VB100, which, from the VB100 site:

In order to display the VB100 logo, an anti-virus product must have demonstrated in our tests that:

* It detects all In the Wild viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning.
* It generates no false positives when scanning a set of clean files.

The product must fulfil these critera in its default state.
In addition, AVG is efficient enough that you can actually do other things while it's scanning with no noticeable slowdown. I couldn't be happier with it. Oh, and it's free for personal, non-commercial use.

Journal Journal: McAffee, You worry me.

I've been using McAffee Security Center on my windows box since january, when my previous subscription expired. it comes free from my ISP, so I figured I'd give it a try. I'm still using it so far, but every now and then there are little things that make me worry, make me wonder if it wouldn't be worth paying for a service that I'm more comfortable with, even if it's just for piece of mind.
