Are you still using Windows XP and worried about having solid malware protection for your system now that Microsoft ended support earlier this year? Then here is your last chance to see which anti-virus apps are doing the best job of protecting Windows XP beyond the end of support date!

AV-Test.org conducted two different sets of tests. The first one focused on consumer anti-virus products while the second focused exclusively on corporate anti-virus solutions.

Surprisingly, quite a few of the anti-virus apps did well during the tests, so if you are considering any ‘last minute’ changes in your current choice of anti-virus app, then now is the time to find the best replacement.
