    In spite of the 'real world'/ 'fake world' conversation, this is still a mediocre result for Webroot.

    I see it now. I've always felt MSE was a POS. I don't know why people insist it is so good.

    Let's call it "Piece Of Stuff" and leave it at that. PM each other if you want to know more.

    Right, well no need for the PM clocks, I figured it out when I read what JR wrote, change the "stuff" part out and there we are. Thank you ;)

    Well, if MSE was really that good then AV vendors will nag about monopoly. For basic protection it's enough. I want to see the result of MSE + SmartScreen, wondering how effective it would be.

    Nice to see...I think we were all "starving" for a new report! Everyone gets "antsy" waiting for the latest results! :D

    Have you ever tried Qihoo? I haven't but it seems to do pretty well...wondering if it slows down the system or runs smooth....

    Let me state it this way even a unknown keylogger or what ever can't see your Banking Credentials because the browser is protected by Identity Shield that's it sole purpose even infected with a unknown keylogger: https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/agenthelp.asp?n=Managing_Identity_Protection

    i dont disagree with the detection ratings but however i do with the performance ratings!! there is no way that some of the ones they have rated as high as they do perform that well ... not a chance. i test and re-test and then test some more and there is zero chance that some (i will not name names) scored as high as they did and im in no way saying the ones i use should have been higher than they are but some that scored near perfect ... no way.. detection rates i think are close but i do see webroot doing better than this suggests. otherwise imo its similar to what we see them score from avc

    Good for Comodo.:thumb:

    I can remember Melih's statements challenging Norton products which was funny according to many experts that day

    http://www.itworldcanada.com/news/symantec-answers-comodos-anti-virus-challenge/141567

    but now their free product shows better protection(although Norton is still a good choice)

    About MSE: their protection against Zerodays are 76% and widespread threats are 95-96% blocked.....the Protection Score is 0% !!!! o_O
    that does n't make sense

    No, latest enterprise engine. There was a bug in some recent versions, fixed by latest. Probably AV-test still used the previous version. You will need to wait a couple of months to see correct detections.:)

    2/3 sounds like a bit too much o_O You probably mean around 20% drop.... See % of 0/day change from previous tests. :)

    It's not that hard to provide better protection if you show an alert for every single thing every single file on your computer tries to do.
    Norton's results are more impressive because their product is almost entirely automatic.

    On default settings the new CIS should only show 1 popup, which is the popup that something wants unlimited rights. The hips is disabled by default and the firewall is on safe mode, so 1 pop up isn't much.
