    The detection rates of all products as appeared in this test are extremely dissapointing.
    Anything below 98% is bad.There is not a single product that is at least over 50%!
    A HIPS has become a necessity.

    Yes I agree with you,I am just noting the fact that in previous tests the detection rate of some products at least was respectable.

    Re: What in the world.

    It is probably due to their sample size and their choice of samples, so you should try to compare relatively, rather than absolutely.

    Probably the anti-spyware are dealing with sneakier spyware (except Alexa :D ) this time. That's why the low detection rate. ;)
