Depends which chart you look at.  KAV is generally tops in a lot of areas.

These comparisons also never figure in how badly the software slows down your system.

true, i wouldn't take these ratings things too seriously.

another issue that rarely gets mentioned but seems to be very important is,
how often are the virus definitions updated.. and how long before a new virus is out before they add the definition..
