AV Comparatives Testing – Which AntiVirus cleans best

AV Comparatives recently tested cleaning capabilities for free and premium AV products.  All products tested did fairly well in scoring.

QUOTE: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus (2013) managed an A average in both removal and convenience. That comes as no surprise to me; both products also scored very well in my own malware cleanup test. Panda Cloud Antivirus Free Edition 2.0 came close with an A- in both categories. All three of these products earned the top rating, ADVANCED+.  Even the lowest scores weren’t dreadful. AVG Anti-Virus FREE 2013 earned a B average for both thorough removal and convenience, while avast! Free Antivirus 7 averaged a B for convenience and B- for thorough removal. These got a STANDARD rating, the lowest passing rating. All of the others were rated ADVANCED.  Overall, products in this test did better than in last year’s test.
