    Mcafee better than emsisoft :rolleyes:

    Bullguard and GDATA so behind :rolleyes:

    And trendmicro...Hmmm....This is something that I would NOT believe

    Still I expect avast to do better...I hope new technologies that are coming along make a rapid difference.

    Take it as a moral victory for Emsi. If it didn't bother to ask any questions either, it would have "looked" much better.

    The user dependence of the behavior blocker isn't favored by their scoring systems. We had 2 misses overall, both caused by bugs that have been addressed in the meantime. In any case, we are working on making the behavior blocker less user dependent :).

    If you are interested in the absolute numbers, take a look at the PDF report. It is already up, but not linked yet. However, when you look at the link format of previous reports, you can easily guess it:

    http://www.av-comparatives.org/dynamic-tests/

    I am sure it will be linked directly on that page shortly as well.

    Great to hear that, Fabian! :thumb:
    It should be more automated...something like DeepGuard (I think....).

    so glad to see avira back near the top!!! and eset it right about where it usually sits which imo is great (imo anything really 98 and higher is great) and not a single fp from eset. otherwise most seem to be doing a good job of late

    Deepguard is pretty user dependent as well in my experience. It is also reflected in the test results.

    i liked emsisoft but it did have far to many pop ups for my liking. very glad to hear you are trying to help that. i may very well give it another shot if you can work on that.

    Fabian its very interesting reply you made I mean number part.

    I can guess that 1.1% compromise for avast is hardly around 20's.

    Also a edit here: Thanks for the link fabian!!

    Thanks! :D

    ESET Smart Security 7 in action!
    A spike in protection rates for this version now in the 99% line, and ultra-precise 0 FP :eek:

    Top 4 real world products reflect also the results of Virus Bulletin Tests o_O

    Yeah...you are probably right.
    That's why I wrote "I think".

    I'm pleased to see Avira recovering its well known excellent performance with this important test. For people who keep saying tests don't matter, they should really consider results over a reasonable span of time. There is no doubt that Kaspersky has been for quite a while No 1 with 99.9% and 0 FPs, these are stunning results.

    It really isn't that bad if you consider the user dependent scores. It's probably just a design/architecture issue, perhaps the user dependence is even intentional. The FP rate is not bad as you can see.

    Panda looks pretty darn fantastic there! I am not too concerned with false positives, and 42 or even 52 is an awful low amount when you put it on a real world system. Of course this does depend on what the FP is. If it is a system file or a major catastrophe like MBAM suffered a while back, that would be a problem.

    Yes it is great if you look from one point of view but the competition demands more if avast wants to compete with other programs :)

    No, it's not. It's about 10% of the scanned files or every tenth file. That is a horrible amount, especially on a "real world system".

    Good job to AVC, like the way the graphs are showing FPs also.

    Think it may be worth clarifying if FP is malware detection or a user dependent prompt.
