PC Magazine - New Anti-Virus Product Reviews for 2011 versions

Usually in the early fall, new annual version releases for many AV product families occurr. While not all products were reviewed, many AV Product reviews are included in the link below.  Webroot was rated as one of the best subscription product and Panda's Cloud AV product as best of the free products.

PC Magazine 2011 Anti-Virus Product Reviews - So far

QUOTE: The summer of 2010 isn't even over yet, but the 2011 antivirus utilities are pouring in already. Significant players are still waiting in the wings, it's true. Norton's 2011 product releases are imminent, as are Trend Micro's. Spyware Doctor and others won't be far behind. But quite a few of 2011's antivirus apps, both commercial and free, have already sprung up. Among others, Bit Defender Antivirus Pro 2011, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011, and Panda Antivirus Pro 2011 and Webroot AntiVirus with Spy Sweeper 2011 are all available and have already been through my testing. If you're looking to buy antivirus, today, the results show that there are already some solid choices available.

I find myself questioning the validity of the reviews since the author is listing Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware as an antivirus software.  MBAM CEO & developers do not identify MBAM as an antivirus but rather describe the the application as being able to "detect and remove malware that even the most well known anti-virus and anti-malware applications fail to detect."
