    Is it true that Avast delete old signatures ?

    Also how do you compare it to NOD32 for detection and eradication

    id place avast's detection as lower than nod32 and only its mail shield has heuristics.

    Was this the test where AVIRA missed the VB100 % Award because of one hacktool detected in the CLEAN set and it was REALLY a HackTool?

    well its my policy that nothing hits a 10 / 10 or 100 / 100 because theres always room for improvement

    if i think somethings abcolutly fantastic i will do a 9 or 99

    I find Avast to be pretty good nowadays. Avast has been adding lots of signatures recently and detection rates are rising. The generic signatures are a marvel. However, Avast does not yet have heuristic analysis (except for email scan). I hope Avast v5 includes this function. :)

    Ehh....thats an interesting choice of words you've got there :ninja:
