Windows 8 Anti-Virus Tests :

In AV-Tests latest round of Anti-Virus programs on Windows 8, Microsoft's own Windows Defender 4.0 is considered to be the baseline for the test. It managed to get certified by AV-Test with a score of 11.5. Bitdefender was rated highest among Windows 8 anti-virus solutions with a score of 17, followed by BullGuard with 16.5 and Kaspersky Lab with 16. Two anti-virus products, AhnLab and Comodo, got scores of 10 each, both below the baseline but still just enough to get certification from AV-Test.
