    There is a test listed for november 2007, so why don't we start speculating on this. Personally, I'm waiting to see if Dr.Web 4.44 origin detections or rootkit detections have any effect. F-prot would be also intresting with the Eldorado thing. Also Kaspersky had new heuristics if I remember correctly.

    So, what are your opinions? ;)

    i expect drweb to score quite well,

    however...

    i fear for the FP rate,

    i.e. Standard, but if FP's are lowered, Advanced.

    Well , 17 days before the results are going to released , don't you think it is a little bit early for such thread ?

    Not only early, but of debateable value. It's to easy to become A vs B and then closed. We shall see for a bit.

    Avira, fast scan, many FPs. The surprise may be Norton.;)

    I doubt that there will be much of a change in positions from the former tests.

    Go sit under a tree and don't think about it for 17 days.

    That's allready been tested...
    v6 (old heuristics)...9%
    v7 (new heuristics)...35%
    They were very new heuristics, don't know if there have been any major updates though... the heuristics on Kaspersky's beta servers have been updated... doubt these will be tested exclusively.

    Guess we can only wait and see till after the results are published... then we can actually comment upon the results... speculation isnt going to get us anywhere... need the true facts (and statistics) :)

    all think all results will differ from the last test.

    i think there will be quite a few changes compared to last test.

    Personally, I avoid making predictions, instead preferring to see Andreas' results when they do come out.

    The only prediction that I can make with confidence is that the newly-rated best AV products will be the only ones that I am not using right now....:rolleyes:

    I am anxious about Symantec, ESET, and BitDefender! o_O
    Let's wait & see...:shifty:


    Uuuups!!! It will be another "famous" retrospective test...
    Meaning, a repetitive test on old stuff like nod32 v2.7, BitDefender 10 etc.

    Better check at chip.de, virusinfo.de, pcwelt.de etc.

    I predict the winner will be elected President of the US.

    I predict Kaspersky, Symantec and DrWeb to do very well here.

    if you disregard signature detections for these results, drweb should do quite well but seeing as it still includes both, I ain't too sure.

    I still think advanced, unless it gets many fp's :)

    there will no big surprises I would say :doubt: . I expected other results (I thought they will all score much higher and also some single products are guessed would score much better than others, but I was wrong).
    what is maybe interesting is that many products have more FP's by signature.
    just wait 11 days.
