Discussion in 'other anti-virus software' started by computer geek, May 30, 2008.
New test results coming on 1st of June, its a heuristic test this time. Any expectations anybody?
I expect a 10-20 page thread debating the merits of said test, and the products tested. What do I win?
You win a chance to help me install the winner of that test on all the 8000 workstations at work since we change AV based on tests on weekly basis.
There will be likely be little statistical variance in individual results compared to the last test in November. If there is significant variance in a few, it would be good to know from the vendor what was changed.
you can not compare the results of retrospective tests, as the test-set changes every time. this time also some other things were changed and also the thresholds for the awards changed. more details will be in the report.
Do you lot spend the time between tests waiting for the next one?:-think the term "get a life" is applicable here!
Hey, just be grateful that this thread was only started a couple days before the results come out. Usually someone starts it a month before and we have 12 pages of predictions before the results get posted.
Amen to that
Or might it be, less and less are depending so much on a AV.
Or some of us that still use an AV worry less about such things.
Possible...........By the way, how is NovaShield working out for you?
I don't expect much changes for this test compared to the last one.
As usual, eset with few or zero FP's, avira keeping its leadership in the field, and kaspersky improving their PDM and heuristics a little.
Come on Guys, let's wait until tomorrow to speak...
That way everyone is sure to get a chance to post.
Another Miss AntiVirus contest ? Can't be much different from all the others, except a new winner maybe.
now look what you've done!(lol)
There's no winner or loser, it just shows if they can keep it up or they can't and what kind of track record they have...
this time i think kaspersky , bitdefender and AVG will score pretty good.
But that's just my guess.
Probs Avira too, and nod. And IBK, has it been tested with the new or old engine?
As usual, the answer is on the main page
No AVG 8? No Avira 8? No Avast 4.8? Well ...
It shows the versions tested last comparitive. You can bet your hiney latest versions are used for tonights spectacle.
its a retrospective test - the second part of the february test.
