    i expected kaspersky & avast based on their performance in MRG Flash tests but didn't expect trend micro & certainly not mcafee.

    it's an independent test lab, but read all other reports showed that Trend micro always at 1st place. Sorry if there're something wrong :D

    Well, maybe Trend Micro is just very good at that. Every vendor has something that it is really good at.

    ^^+1.maybe instead of detection trend micro focuses more on system vulnerabilities assuming that most of its clients(business mostly i think)are more vulnerable to exploit-based attacks.
