Why is Nod32 on this list ?
ESET is NOD32
Glad I moved from AVG to avast years ago.
AVAST for free, Kaspersky for PAID. ESET for PAID as well
I thought a MSE was supposed to be good! Now I have to get Avast. I've had pretty good luck with MSE, though. And its much cleaner looking than Avast.
They tested these AV on an unpatched SP1 Windows 7... I believe that MSE would score a bit higher if they just updated it. I've been pretty safe with MSE.
I use webroot spysweeper and love it, its so light and fast.
And where's Comodo?
I'll keep my Windows 7 patched and run the FREE version of Avast, thank you very much.

Shadowserver presents statistics on how well major AV-programmes do, both on a daily as well as, perhaps more informatively, on e g, a bi-monthly basis. Check it out !...
Sorry, the three links I attempted to insert in my posting above disappeared. Here they are, in order : https://www.shadowserver.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/Shadowserver/Mission, https://www.shadowserver.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/AV/VirusDailyStats, and https://www.shadowserver.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/AV/Virus60-DayStats, respectively....
Avast for Sure, I actually pay for the higher end version of Avast and it is Top Notch. Mcafee is more a virus than a removal tool :)
If you read the fine print, the tests involve same day viruses, i.e. ones that there is still no patch for, and all "viruses" are website based links. While it's certainly a valid test, it's hardly conclusive outside zero-day vulnerabilities, and zero-day vulnerabilities are generally the domain of the IE11 filter and Windows Defender and not really the strong suit of MSE
I am happy that I moved from AVG to avast. one of my friend using Techgenie antivirus, and he is happy with this
