    Good norton, seems that their cloud implementation is finally giving excellent results.

    4 (5) test sponsored by norton in 1 day... do they need to make so much noise for the 2011 release? :D

    Norton chose the products to be tested, they didnt choose Comodo.

    If you made a good product, you'd want to shout about it!

    Is written in the report that Norton paid for this, did I said something else?

    All these Symantec sponsored tests seem fishy to me. I mean I expect Norton to do better than most products but not THAT much better.

    These tests IMHO are quite legitimate and the results of these tests also reflect the results of other tests for NIS 2010; whether it is AV-Comparatives, or Dennis Labs, or even AV-Test. The common denominator right now is Symantec follow closely by Kaspersky, that is it.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, it is hard to question a test that shows that, because that had pretty much been the story for the past two years or so.
