    Quick Heal on top. This is crazy :eek:

    I thought Panda was included in av-test.

    They went from 90% 0 day in the last test to 100% here. Seems very odd. Also, it appears a lot of programs suddenly have 100% 0 day.

    After the recent test of Cylance by AV-Test, I am surprised anyone even pays attention to their test reports:shifty:

    Are you insinuating that they paid for a higher score? Seems ridiculous when Defender is free software, and Microsoft probably could care less if you use some alternative over it.

    I think he implied more resources.

    I just compared Bitdefender and Kaspersky's standard Pc's performance scores and they both did about equal, where one did worse the other did better and vise versa. I always hear how Bit is heavy, etc, but from what I'm seeing no heavier then Kaspersky is.

    Performance score is largely link to local conditions, use scenario and configuration of the PC. Therefore it has, IMO, limited value and representativeness.

    Nothing surprising...quick heal submitted their total security product in all testing which is the only product using Bitdefender engine and rest products use the same old junk no Bitdefender.

    This is very stingy for quick heal to grab a quick good showing throughout the year even if people don't buy their total security on home computers they won't bother (or at least haven't yet)integrating BD into their other products.Very smart company you know.

    How about I change the name from quick heal to quick infect that suits them better since it's that easy to bypass their other products.

    And now our govt. uses their crappy engine in the country's cyber cleaning project.No quick heal didn't bother using Bitdefender engine in their removal tool.Smart!

    Great results from most vendors. Either they are all great or they have figured out how to beat the tests. :argh:

    That's because the link above is for the Win SEVEN test, not Win10.

    That xsjx guy has a screw loose, he is the biggest Avira fan boy you will ever meet and 98% of anything he ever talks about online is about Avira being his favorite choice or being better than every other vendor or him asking if Avira somehow incorporates tech from all other vendors. Once he claimed that the support staff told him that they use technology from... Avast I think he said?

    Just go look at his MT profile, he hijacked enough threads unrelated to Avira to turn the topic into why Avira is the best.

    I've never seen someone be so obsessed with an AV in my life. Let me guess, he has an Avira wall paper and lock screen on his phone as well... Probably kisses the GUI on the screen when he wishes it a good night before bed too. :D

    There are several good products out now for sure....wish they would spend more time on Windows 10 but just glad to see AV-Test back in the mix...seems like it has been a while. :)
