    Noted. This is a different test than the title of that thread though. IMHO, when there are separate but related items, the best thing to do is have a separate thread for each item, and if desired post hyperlinks to those related threads.

    They sort of make up for it in the PUA detection. They've actually caught a lot of stuff malwarebytes misses in the last couple of computers I've cleaned.

    Now that i think of it, Emsisoft went from insane FPs to almost nothing. Good job!

    They have always done well in static file detection.

    No afaik it's more or less that Symantec don't want to participate in all of the tests. I believe it works like a "test serie" meaning a vendor can't just pick the RWPT but drop out on the File Detection test. It's all or nothing wich I personally think is fair.

    And also because they say that these file detection tests are meaningless (They got low scores before pulling out).
