    Why don't you make the topic title 'AV-Comparatives: Removal-Test Nov 2014' or something like that? Just 'AV-Comparatives' is not very helpful.

    Actually the title is with misprint: "AV-Compatives.org".

    Title really needs editing

    Nearly everyone failed at sample #30, hmmm....

    Anyway, without discrediting AV-Comparative's test result, IMO removal capability of real-time AVs is not much of an issue since when the time has come for malware removal it usually requires a joint forces effort of various tools for cleanups or a last known clean image.

    Appears the title is more important that the results.

    I must have been living under a rock the past few years. AVG never used to outperform the high end AV's did it?
    In my experience in the past cleaning machines that had AVG free on them. They didn't detect or clean very well.
    Then again maybe it all comes back to what is infecting most people now days? is it PUP's?

    I'm surprised to see AVG do so well. I might have to check out their latest.

    No Trend tested. Trend has some new removal technologies in 2015 as well.

    Surprised at AVG. Glad Panda Cloud did so well, as malware removal seemed to be a problem for it in the past.

    What no 360 there, I guess it only removes the newest and the coolest viruses. :cautious:

    Yes, it would be nice to know how Trend or even Norton compare, but too bad I guess. :(

    Yeah I didn't notice that they where missing until you mentioned it. I am not sure, but maybe this test was one of the tests that the vendors could opt-out of ? Or perhaps it is a stand-alone test and not part of the "test suite" where TM is included afaik. :doubt:

    But can't you check with someone at the company to find out if you work at Trend? :D

    ...or you could just read the report and find out that it was a test where vendors had to decide beforehand if they want to opt-in or not

    from my own testing avg has never performed that well especially in removal. im going to reinstall it tomm and do some new testing to see if they have improved but i have my doubts. most of the others fell somewhere in the area i figured they would with a couple other exceptions.

    AVG updated their malware cleaning algorithms many times over the last year. I'm glad to see the results are being seen in tests now. :)

    If Bitdefender could address all the bugs then everyone would be using it. Same bugs for years. No mods in the forums. Also if Bitdefender was so good then why are they always ?giving it away for FREE? Heck if you keep up the free giveways you will never need to buy a license for it. I still have a 9 month license for Total Security and a 6 month license for Internet Security.
