Anyone heard of PC Tools spyware doctor?

I'm afraid it could be hoax. McAfee doesn't detect any viruses, and the former detected about 10 of it. Anyone encountered this too? or something like that?

I'm just concerned.

Okay, now I have to admit, I have not voted, because I can't vote on account of I have not tested them all to see how they are, but to me an anti-virus needs a few key features:
firstly, it should not eat up all your computer's resources, that would just be a waste, because your PC may then be virus free, but you still can't use it because your PC is suddenly slow, I always experienced that with the older versions of Norton, but I can't say that about the newer ones because I have not tried them yet ...
Then also, it should obviously have an extensive virus database, and then necessary means to clean that virus without just deleting all your files, I had an AV that did that once ... maybe there was no other option, but I removed that one aswell, can't remember what it was though ...
The AV should also have proper support, for example, updates every week or so, and an FAQ somewhere or proper documentation so you know how it works etc. I had Avast once (quite a few years ago though) and I found the updates didn't always want to work and there wasn't real proper documentation anywhere so that was quite a hassle ...

So, is there anyone here that now named an AV an has actually tested all/most of them?

Here's the thing: I use AVG, but I honestly can't remember the last time it ever found any malware on my system. I think the best antivirus system is smarter computing. Don't do stupid things and stupid things won't happen to you.

righteous: There's a website (I can't remember the URL for the life of me) which shows how many detections each program made in the last day/week/month, how many times they were updated, the success rates etc.
The best are always NOD32 and Kaspersky.
