I have been reading some of the AV-tests that are posted here from time to time. And it makes me wonder. Why is it a priority that an AV can protect me from a lot of sometimes very old viruses? I am only speaking from my own humble experience, but most of my friends/relatives are hit by new viruses, never old ones. I would rather have an AV that was updated very quickly, and was intelligent enough to catch unknown viruses. I also think, that a good AV should be able to protect itself from being shut down by a virus (this happened to me with F-Prot a couple of years ago). I dont really see the point of these 100% tests.
