    I use Bitdefender Antivirus Pro and Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro.

    Too bad I had to pay such a hefty price for these. Please do not post if you have Norton products..

    Second test is a bit old, BitDefender still ranks best.

    Not ashamed at all
    All Trojans' ports we scanned are stealthed (probably by a firewall). This means your system is not infected by any of these Trojan horses.

    Linux Shorewall did its job well

    and it is open source/freeware

    Norton, I am tech savey enough to recognize an attempted virus infection and eliminate it before it can even begin to download itself.

    Norton is pretty darn good at catching the worms that I can't.

    I haven't had an infection in at least 3 years on my desktop.

    PFSense run from a seperate box, which means I can lockdown both incoming and outgoing ports independent of the computer as well as Packet scan which is a necessity in some instance. (Not for the faint hearted)

    Bit Defender is a good one but in my view these two are the reliable and widely sued Antivirus these days...
    AVAST
    ESET SMART SECURITY NOD.

    I wouldn't know, although saying that I have found that AVG has become a resource hog now through having too many functions and additions, it's a shame though considering an Antivirus program should really just be about attempting to stop rogue code being executed or running in the background.
