Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 Tops CNET Antivirus Performance Test

CNET Labs recently compared the performance of top antivirus software and the results of the CNET 2007 antivirus performance test scores are out. The Editors’ Choice winner for antivirus protection is Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6

“Of the products we’ve tested and reviewed thus far, we think Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 offers the best value and performance. Norton AntiVirus 2007 improved some over last year, but McAfee VirusScan Plus 2007, despite adding a firewall, failed to move up. New this year is Eset NOD32, an excellent application, but one that’s best suited for more advanced users.”

The results were the outcome of several antivirus tests like iTunes 6 deep-scanning performance, Sorenson Squeeze 4 deep-scanning peformance, scan speed and boot speed. Read the CNET Editors review of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.

It is amazing that the relatively new Kaspersky is giving tough competition to long established leaders in security and antivirus software like Norton and McAfee. If you like free software, you might want to download these best free antivirus softwares.
