    I'm a little confused - could someone explain what the number 100 signifies? Surely not all those products acheived 100%, unless the sample size was so small / old?

    No webroot. Ikarus passes, Emsisoft fails.

    looks like everyone did well in this. Cannot find norton.
    Also trustport and F-Secure failed, thats something new.

    One (1) False positive and Emsisoft fails.

    Yet they allow and pass antiviruses which allow their host to become infected with malicious programs they don't deem to be "In the Wild".

    What is the logic in that? I'd rather have a antivirus that notifies me of suspicious programs, allowing me to investigate further, rather than an antivirus that happily allows an infection.

    Maybe Norton is becoming the new Dr. Web. That means a withdrawal from testing. AV_C, VB, a trend?
