If you are regularly running updates after installing, then any antivirus you use will be up-to-date in security features.

What? Most of the anti-virius programs out there have update capabilities, and like AVG, display their update status when opened.

Yeah, as others have said definition updates will be dependent on your specific antivirus application. There's not a universal database or anything AFAIK

My McAfee sometimes updates even 2+ times/day, I'm very pleased with their services, definitely worth to buy.

AVG & Avast both are weak in trojan detection, I'll try out avira for my home PC.

You will never get the anti virus up to date. Each anti virus has its updates every month which includes scripts for new viruses found, if you dont update that software , it is of no use. The people who design these viruses study the new anti virus and then design the virus that will harm your computer. You can call this as a reverse engineering.

I use Mc Afee and NOD ESET 32 anti-virus on my personal computer. NOD ESET 32 can always detect if there's a malicious software or worm crawling when I'm attempting to open an odd downloadable program while Mc Afee scans my internal files to check if my computer is infected or not.

SSLuser, you may need to reinstall. I do not have that problem and mine updates everyday. Try uninstalling, downloading the newest version and installing fresh

AVG is good for the free route.

I am currently loving NOD32 on all of my Windows machines.
