    Good Morning! I Might be wrong...but I can't help but feel that there seems to be a slight but persistent bias in favour of Symantec! And there were a lot of firms that were omitted or chose not to participate in this testing. Something seems off centre! Sincerely...Securon

    I don't know. The field could be larger but there are still some good programs there.

    too many tests and most IMHO have little value. For one you don't know the testing procedures or the test files used. Anyone can setup a test and say x is better than y. This would be true on Monday but no so on Tuesday. The only thing an intellegent person can do is try differerent programs to see which one fits his 'real world' tests and if it suits their needs that fine. Tests are all subjective...

    Based on the previous two benchmarks, you can expect more products to be added in later editions and Webroot SecureAnywhere at the top.
