    Reputable websites for antivirus top lists and tests


    I recall there was one well known reputable website outlining AV tests and top lists, but can't figure out which one was it.
    In the mean time maybe some other good sites appeared, so if you know any such sites let me know.

    AV-Comparatives is probably the most popular site that compares various AV programs.
    Especially their real world protection tests.

    Real-World Protection Test Feb-Mar 2023 - Factsheet





    For scanning downloaded files Virustotal is probably the most popular.

    Windows security is still rated highest.

    I only want to install another top rated antivirus temporarily to scan my system, after that I'll remove it.

    No need to if Windows Security is stating that it is clean. There are portable versions of AV's that eill scan. A top rated is kot going to do anything better than Windows Security.

    I find www.av-test.org results useful.

    If you click on the little arrows next to each entry in its summary list
    Reputable websites for antivirus top lists and tests-av-testorg-initial-list-arrow-cropped.png
    then you'll see details of the results for each product and, just as importantly, definitions of their categories Protection, Performance, Usability [definitions which are not intuitive].
