Interesting article/comparisons. These are their recommendations:

* Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2004
* Zone Labs ZoneAlarm Pro 4.5

Antivirus Scanner Best Buy

Full article (9 pages) here:

Not sure whether I agree with all of it, but at least it gives a bit more info on whats available.

I also like to read reviews, because

1. I can't trust the homepage of the software. They all claim to be the very best in the world and promise full protection.
2. I can't trust the user's opinion, because their reasons are often based on a personal choice or experience.

But I can't trust the reviews either, because several websites have another "best buy" for the same softwares in their reviews. Nevertheless I find reviews always interesting to read.
