I wouldn't consider an AV with lots of false positives a good Antivirus. You may think it is, but I can create a program to block out every file and file extension in the world... And it would be a pretty crappy Antivirus. (Kind of like this "Qihoo" it looks like lol)

I think the detection rate to false positive ratio balances a few of them out. However i'm upset that they didn't include more in this review.

They didn't really give much information about Norton 360 2011 in this review, but I have Bitdefender Total Security 2011 as well. It's a great AV in my opinion. And at least it's detection rate doesn't generate a ton of false positives like ESET. I'd rather have a real AV than one that just blocks out everything.

That's a good choice, I never was against people using Kaspersky, even before I saw this review. I've used it before, and it was fairly decent.

I used to use norton, but i just like the gui better than kaspersky. Best thing is you get 3 computers protected for nortons price of one.

Why do you need a combo? Combination's of full auto-protect AVs is a bad thing. It can cause a lot of conflictions, and you only need one auto-protect AV along with a manual "Scanner" program like Malwarebytes.
