    Hi,

    the report will be released in about 5 days. Please write anything related to the new results/report of February 2007 in this thread, in order to make it easier for me to keep track of the discussions. Thanks!
    I am updating a bit the website...

    P.S.: around the 8th March there will be also another test report containing some few other AV products!

    best regards,
    IBK

    I hope they do well also!

    3.11.2 - Just had a kernel update today which helped with generic detections I believe, to bad it didn't make the cut.

    I am so pleased. A hard test and i think there might not be a 99% by any AV. NOD and norton missed advanced+ by a bit. I think this tiem around only avira and kaspersky wil get A+. i think 2-3 Av's will fail.

    Interesting results, to say the least. AVG has improved a lot since the last test. Kudos to them and I hope Grisoft keeps it up! :)

    All KAV based AVs are still at advanced+....Overall, many vendors have improved a lot, but some are beginning to lag behind..

    I was just joking... I think Microsoft perform badly and not even got a mark!!:D

    Or may be there are other reasons behind... let's see when the full report is published.

    Usually very little difference, there is not enough of a difference to make any change in the level of detection it has received. So, if F-Prot gets "Advanced", Authentium will also get "Advanced".
