    Interesting to track the evolution of the WSA Win 7 tests (note that some of the tests are for XP - so I have only included the Win 7 tests):
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxProtectionxxxxxxRepairxxxxxxxUsability
    Nov/Dec 11:xxxxxxxx4.0xxxxxxxxxxxxx3.5xxxxxxxxxx4.0
    Mar/Apr 12:xxxxxxxxx5.0xxxxxxxxxxxxx4.0xxxxxxxxxx4.0
    May/Jun 12:xxxxxxxxx5.0xxxxxxxxxxxxx5.0xxxxxxxxxx5.5

    If the trend continues this way for the next few months, WSA will very soon be at the top of the pack for this test :D :thumb:

    Not sure why you don't have the Aug results in there. 5.5, 4.0, 4.0.

    Got it. I suspect most WSA users are off XP at this point, but the difference in scores between the operating systems is interesting.

    Yes, that's what I thought.

    But question (I am no computer geek :( :(): can an AV product give varying results on different operating systems—and more specifically on different versions of Windows?? If so, this may be an interesting trend (though obviously three tests is a pretty slender basis statistically speaking on which to predict a trend)
