    I find it funny how the detection rating for Norton is 'Excellent', when it could only detect 60% of compressed viruses. I wonder if leaving out NOD32 was deliberate.

    Well, after reviewing those that were umm, tested, I feel quite content with my PCCillin. It made a strong showing all across the board. I'm not sure how Norton was made 'best buy' considering that some of the others seemed to do better. Norton seems to pop up as favored all across the magazine spectrum, though.

    Hmmm! :D So based on the "Subjective" element i.e. Usability Norton wins? Rather sad really:

    To everyone from Firefighter!

    When Kaspersky was better than RAV in their "heuristics" test, I can't understand when eXtendia AntiVirus AVK was the best of all in their "heuristics"! o_O

    Best Regards,
