    Can you test F-secure Internet Security 2005 and Panda Internet Security because they also detect spywares?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi All:

    Thanks for the encouraging feedback on the tests.

    I am getting lots of requests to test various anti-malware programs. For now, though, I'm planning to restrict myself to dedicated anti-spyware scanners instead of more general anti-malware scanners or anti-virus programs.

    Also, I won't be doing the Grokster test again as some vendors could start targeting the test itself.

    Best,

    Eric L. Howes
