    Kaspersky doing great, however Eset is disappointing.

    Avira is getting what is deserves (?), let's not even mention VIPRE !

    I didn't see what OS it was tested on ? Win 7, Win XP ?

    What's the test methodology? Is it just an on-demand scan of malware, or are they allowed to execute? I ask because I'd think Avast!s auto-sandbox would have detected a bunch of the threats.

    It's all in the report.....

    It is also mentioned in the report that this test is only done once a year because it is time consuming......

    I 100% agree with this statement.. Its unfair to punish twice for false positives :(
    If i remember correctly "Pbust" when he used to be working on Panda, also raised this question why punishing AV's twice for on-demand test and behavioral test o_O
    I too suggest not to consider false positives for this behavioral test and punish AV's twice which is useless :doubt:
    Totally agree with "Fabian Wosar"'s point :thumb:

    IBK please shed some light for this issue... :)

    Regards,
