    I'm interested to see how McAfee scores will change when they start testing with v15.1 with the Real protect engine

    Windows Defender scored worst only detecting 99% of malicious files. I guess I'll have to jump ship. :D

    WD scored worst than the rest competitors.
    In F1, the last one is very fast too (only few seconds from the winner) but in the race results is the last car.

    Which I'm sure have since been fixed by the time you read the report and would've only been an issue if you'd had the problematic file on your system at the time it was being flagged by AVAST, assuming you use AVAST as the anti-malware program of choice. I agree though that 28 is a lot but I wonder how many of those files anyone of us has on our systems anyway.

    Maybe it's time for the Microsoft prevalence based analysis of the File Detection Test.
