Anitivirus Software Comparisons

Antivirus software is all the same, right? Not really; you have both paid and free products, individual AV software or a "suite" of software, which would include other features - it can get a bit confusing.

AVTest - comparisons of both paid and free products on different Windows versions

WestCoastLabs - "real time" comparisons of popular free products
