Best Antivirus For Windows XP? Here Are 23 Choices

explained here:

“The most difficult test regimen for all security packages is the detection of malware. While the packages in the real world testing were required to detect and liquidate some 160 brand-new specimens of malicious code, the AV-TEST reference set included an additional ambuscade of 24,000 known malware threats. Among the desktop solutions, 13 of the 23 products achieved the highest point score of 6 in the Protection category! An additional 8 packages achieved 4 to 5.5 points. Only Ahnlab and Microsoft each scored a mere 0.5 points.”
While the Microsoft solution is only listed here as a baseline, Ahnlab seriously needs to ramp up their security, it seems. It is in pretty dire state at the moment. A number of other charts are available at the link above, which should help you determine the best antivirus for Windows XP, if you are still rocking the retired operating system for some reason. Luckily, a lot of security software manufacturers are offering their solutions for the old OS. Most of these vendors have announced plans to support Windows XP for at least one more year.]]>
