    Good to see Panda was also in the list. :thumb:

    Would be great if A-Squared, VIPRE, Outpost and Webroot come in and join the test too. :D

    I wish Norman all the luck. I actually like it. It is not perfect but I like the way it's working on my pc, it's perfect for my internet habits.

    It's good to see Trend Micro returning.

    I hope/wish for Comodo to be included, and I wish A-V Comparatives would drop Kingsoft.

    dont get ur hopes up, comodo has a pool of endless excuses that have already been proven false (and as u can see other vendors agree with that considering how many are re-joining)

    A2 hasnt joined due to costs and vipre seems to be MIA on the issue with the same line "were working on it"...

    Yeah it is good to see both of these back in, I was hoping when I saw this thread that it was because Vipre had joined but I guess that is asking too much of them. I used to like Trend Micro but they have went down hill lately IMO. I do like the new Titanium app but I haven't tested one of their suites in about three years. Would be nice to see Comodo too but I still feel like they have a way tocome with there AV. Firewall/HIPS are strong though

    Hi,

    To reach 20 they are 2 places left. I hope that in one of them, Emsisoft will be a new contender.

    Regards,

    Hmmmm...still no Vipre. And some wondered why I dropped them.

    Perhaps they cold be the other one that could be added, but that is a long time of "we will be in the next test".

    Anyone think PCTools will test well? I was under the impression that Threatfire was the backbone of the PCTools suite and the av was in the lower tier of products. With on demand scans (assuming that will continue) PCTools may not do well at all.

    Thats hard to believe. Emsisoft said few days ago that participating is too expensive for them. 1000 € (euros) can't be too much for them. :D

    I believe 1,000 euros is around $1,400 US dollars. I don't think that would stop most companies participating in the test. I could be wrong.

    If emsisoft joined, I think their detection rates would be right up there with the best of them. Sure it might get several more false positives, but as long as they are on non-critical files, and people understand these go to quarantine and can be recovered, I don't think the reader/user would mind.
