Because no solution offers 100% protection, the malware removal capabilities are an important aspect to consider when choosing an antivirus solution. An antivirus scan is the first counteraction of most users when they notice their system is infected. Therefore, we evaluate both completeness and convenience in our annual malware removal test. In our 2017 report we tested 17 antivirus solutions.
