    Usual AVs got best results. Good job :thumb:. They also have great OD scanners.

    It's good to see Tencent doing so well. I'm suprised that Quick Heal performed so well.

    Both products are using the BitDefender engine (QuickHeal --> Total Security only).

    @Firecat I knew Tencent has used it for a while, but was unaware of that Quick Heal used it. That is explains the good result. Thanks for the info.

    @anon Thanks, I had not had a look at the link for a few months.

    I didn't realise that quite so many antiviruses (26) were using Bitdefender's scan engine. Plus of course, there will be other antiviruses not on the list as well.

    The number of FPs is too high though... Even MS has an unusually high number of FPs...
