    Nothing surprising.
    TrustPort is that one using that huge amount of engines right?

    The most interesting part is the battle of the freebies.
    Avira did a good job (paid version, but there ain't that much difference), but could be better.
    MSE is really getting a great product (probably my favourite freebie).
    AVG (looking forward to version 10)> avast! (I liked 4.8 more) against the expectations.
    Also Panda did good, but with the expected FP's (Panda Cloud will probably get the same kind of results).

    It also looks like the BitDefender is really getting a top-notch one again (BitDefender, G Data and F-Secure all use it (partly)).

    But a shame the results are already quite dated. For example ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4.0 was used while 4.2 (which I use) is out for already a few months. Personally I found the result of ESET a little disappointing, they have to come up with something for version 5 or I move to Microsoft Security Essentials or AVG Free 10

    The cloud is included in panda 2010, but I'm not sure if they allow internet connexion in this test
    Avira Pro have the behaviour blocker, the free version is just the AV and the behaviour blocker is a very important part in this kind of tests.

    Panda was rated Advance

    MSE was rated Advance+

    I think you have your winners mixed up.;)

    Wow, BitDefender seems to be back again :) Kaspersky and MSE are great as well :thumb:

    Avast is disappointing and Panda has a great score but a lot of FP too :rolleyes:

    Not exactly: the behavior blocker does NOT play any role in this test. It is all about heuristics/generic detection (without emulated execution I think, but I am not sure about that).

    That depend on how important are the FP's for you and the ability of the AV to unblock/"un-quarantine" the files.

    Yes, you are right I have just check the pdf.

    Yes, because you are the chief of AvinashR labs, but not every user is able to decide it :D

    trjam is back to MSE, I think it's time to try it soon :)

    Hi,

    TrustPort was tested in standard configuration in this test, AVG + BitDefender engines.

    But i guess number of detection also matters. Doesn't it matter for you?

    Panda Detected:- 17,198 out of 27,271 whereas,
    MSE Detected:- 15,992 out of 27,271

    I guess its a huge difference b/w Panda & MSE !!

    Take it easy ;)

    But don't forget: A single FP can kill your system (remember Avast) :rolleyes: That's just my opinion, I don't like too many FP.

    I second that! MSE is one of the winners!

    I found them strange too when I first saw them, guess he you should remove the spaces.

    17198 out of 27271 for Panda, and
    15992 out of 27271 for MSE.

    Thanks for that, again proofs what I said in my previous post. BitDefender engine is really getting a top-notch one again, it is included in 4 top performers (TrustPort, G Data, BitDefender and F-Secure). The funny thing is that BitDefener themselves perform the worst due to the additional technologies (i.e. another engine in case of TrustPort and G Data, and F-Secure's own technologies) included in the other three. I think BitDefender 2011 will do a good job.

    LOL, I take you valuable words +vely. I was just pulling your legs.

    BTW it depends on person to person...Whenever i receive any kindda of fp's result, which i am sure is fp..I do cross check it with n number of vendors before taking any action. :)
