avast! is constantly evolving and improving and for me it's been my Antivirus program
of choice for the past 6+ years. :)

i just think where USBs are concerned,you can never be too sure with any anti-virus program.i have to work with USBs everyday,and i can't help it.so i am always apprehensive about inserting it in my computer..these days i have Avast5 and MBAM..i just hope that would be enough to protect my pc

@phyniks: I understand you have when you antivirus is missing detection of some malware, I had same filling a few years ago when avast missed to detect 'Vundo' in my system, but, else than blaming avast! for poor detection, you can help them resolve this problem by sending those malware (Compressed in ZIP, RAR or 7Z format, password protected with password in mail body too) virus at avast dot com , by taking this action you will save your computer for future attack against this malware and also save 130 million users else from this malware.

I see Iran's flag under your name, so I guess why you are saying NOD32 is best for you! because everyone else is using too and they ('They' is referring to an unknown people!) say it's best, huh? ;)

If you want to use Free and legal antivirus, stay with avast, if not and you don't go for pirate software, choose what you like.

Dear Omid
I felt proud seein you re iranian
i ve tested lots of antiviruses,norton,kasper,bitd,avira,avg,panda,vipre and i found NOD32 smoother and more sensible
that's my opinion and i dont wanna argue
i know it is not the most powerful(compared to gdata and avira) but i m sure it is stronger and better than avast
no one can ignore their reputation while avast has never been in top three
last year according to AV-COMPARATIVES.ORG eset scored THIRD after NORTON and KASPERSKY
no one can disagree with that if he is somewhat rational
but i hope avast can improve to become number one some time,but can it...? ???

I guess that's because Norton and Kaspersky had more money to spend in their advertising budget...  ;D

@phyniks

Well, I agree when compare "Performance" and "False-Positive", ESET is one of the Top-3 in the list, ESET is a light-weight without many False-Positives (Low FPs in price of low detection rate too).

As you have seen in my signature, I use Avira Premium Security Suite in my Host machine because of it's detection rate (which has been best, always!) and light performance impact, comparable to ESET and even sometimes better since it has better quality.

I've found many bugs and lack of detection in ESET, also, to choose an Antivirus to install on a computer, a pirated version of ESET is not a good choice, when ESET can be cracked to use and it cannot protected itself from being cracked, how you can trust it to protected your computer?

For a free Antivirus, I highly recommend you to use avast free + Malwarebytes Antimalware to have best protection to even beat ESET in protection and performance ;-)

About that you named G-DATA, it's a protection made for enterprise systems and network with too many FPs and running 2 AV engine in same time (avast + BitDefender) made for Administrators to watch every suspicion file. (Like TrustPort which use up to 3-5 Engine on your demand).

But, you action and behavior in the forum has not been Professionally, if your antivirus failed to block a treat, you should not come and scream for your hate, but come and let us know about its fail and we will practice to prevent future problems and also help you solve the current problem. when you do this, you will help yourself and also 130.000.000 users else around the world!

I suggest you install AutorunEater. (The link is softpedia. At the moment the authors' site is unavailable; wordpress (the host) seem to be having some "issues".

The program will detect and block a malicious or suspicious autorun from actually running, and thus prevent it from transferring a malicious payload from a USB stick to a computer with AE installed.
Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.
