    I sure would have liked a "combined" chart of those results instead of all those separate ones (for a better side-by-side comparison at-a-glance).

    I don't guess I just missed that one, huh? Pete

    I have a question about their method of testing.
    What do they mean the viruses were replicated? Does that mean they were not using the real live virus itself?
    Also the terminology, some found some not is very confusing. What are they trying to say there.
    All in all, I did not see anything that surprised me. Sometimes I get tempted to switch my virus protection around as I am using DrWeb resident and AVP3.5 as backup scanner, but I do not see any reason, based on these test results, to make AVP my resident and DrWeb my backup scanner.
    Interesting.
    I did not see NOD32 there. Pity. I cannot tell from the list how many are viruses, trojans, worms, or what, so it may not be the kind of test pertinent to NOD32 if it is a mixed bag.

    Polymorphic virus -multiple copies of each virus with slightly different code (to avoid detection by AntiVirus product)
