Re: Suggestions for the 2013 Anti Virus Poll

I think you need to make this as "across the board" as possible.

Vipre
AVG
Bitdefender
Bullguard
eScan
CAT-Quickheal
Fortinet
Gdata
Trend
Ahnlab
PCTools
360 Safeguard
Blink Endpoint
Commtouch
Ikarus
FileMedic
Filseclab
Hauri
K7 Computing
Kingsoft
Quickheal
MSecure MalwareSecure
Total Defense Consumer
TrustPort
VIRUSfighter Pro
Zeobit

Some of these I've listed not on the initial list must be worth including. It would have to be a fair request. The poll must be neutral to as many known as possible.

A/V is so clouded now for malware, trojans, worms, etc, trying to split malware tools from A/V programs is only guided by "allowing to be active alongside an A/V"; whereas 2 A/V's are not suggested to run together.

$0.02 worth.

Agreed.
Will the poll allow multiple choices or minimally 2 selections?

Also, the poll has to be more detailed.
Such for an example>

Ease of use and Detection rates

Also, most AVs has bundled in firewall and other security features in them and not just being an AV.

I dont know. But I think it must be taken into account.

+1 on this. Several multiple mentions from the "What are you running" thread like AVG & Bit Dedfender are absent. They shouldn't be relegated to "other", I suspect their user base exceeds some that did make this draft list.

Edit: My bad, I thought I posted about AVG there, but it was here. Still, my point remains the same.
