    @trjam

    Can you please change the thread title to "Latest VB RAP test" or something so people will understand what the thread is about?

    I see Many more vendors above the 90% mark, plus many "new" product names once again.

    I am happy that Avast, Avira, and ESET of course did well.
    And Sunbelt did a big jump upwards this time from around 75% to above 90% wich is great but not very surprising for me. And so did Symantec.

    And TrustPort is the "winner" along with Coranti both Multi-engine AV's.

    Just curious. Anyone know why Kaspersky Pure has about 20% more proactive detection over Kaspersky IS 2011?

    My thoughts exactly...I used KIS 2010/2011 a good part of this past year. Recent tests I have seen have Pure below the NIS results*#%? That's a good weekend project for trjam!

    Wow Trustport almost 100%. And anyone know why Avira Free keeps having better protection than Avira Pro?

    Anyone seen Panda in this graph? I looked hard, might have missed them. Good work Avira free and Avast :thumb:

    Whoever is in charge of charts at VB ought to be fired for that one.
    Little tiny, fuzzy print, little dots with names scattered everywhere, connected by a jumble of straight lines. Whoever thought that one up was either smoking crack or else just doing his best to make life difficult for people. :thumbd: :thumbd:

    Maybe it's easier to see and evaluate when you are consuming adult beverages and/or smoking something grown in California as opposed to North Carolina!

    Agreed. However the members of the website probably get more detail than the rest of us.

    No, they haven't been tested in the RAP test for a long time.

    I am surprised to see the improvements of BKIS. It has jumped a lot.

    Are you sure? Because TrustPort do have several engines.
    And J_L said "it" beated the multi-engine AV's.....

    Np, though I agree. I really think Panda should participate.
