    Incomplete and unfair list IMHO since it only includes Security Products that participate in AV-C's main tests and we know that some, such as Webroot and Norton, don't participate because they have major objections respecting the real world accuracy of at least one of AV-C's tests on their product because their product's protection methods, and to be eligible for AV-Comparative testing on any of it's tests a company has to agree to participate in all tests.

    Emsisoft is shown compatible and they don't participate in AV-C's tests anymore.

    I thought vendors themselves would be quick to intimate users on how compatible their product is with Windows 10 (afterall, another cash cow). I don't see why AV-Comparatives needs to do this testing.

    I guess everyone can take it as they desire, and do what they think is best.
    I used Norton for years, but when they refused to permit tests by AVC I stopped using Norton. I like to be able to get some comparative information and in my opinion AVC is fair and competent.

    This: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/av-test-jan-feb-2014-results-are-out.361802/#post-2354026 plus the fact Emsisoft didn't show up in most of A-VC's 2014 test results, lead me to believe they no longer used AV-C services. I also believe there were posts in Wilder's by Fabian to this effect. They might just selectively participate since they were included in this report?

    Emsisoft was never tested by Av-Test, you are doing some confusion.
    Emsisoft participated in most (all? ) tests in AV comparatives, there is no reason to think that they are going to gave up on AV-C.
