    ESET did fine, especially the last two months. Why did you single ESET out as a poor performer and make it sound like they did terrible compared to everyone else, when that was not the case at all?

    Sounds like someone has a bone to pick. Being in the top 99 percentile in detection rates I think thats rather good. Considering the performance to detection ratio of KES to ESET or ESET to any other of the top 7 "best" AV's in the test I would pick ESET all day long.

    Well, Kaspersky seems to be VERY strong in protection in general. I mean, just look at the tests. It's hardly any where it doesn't come out in the 1st place.

    There are ones that could only dream of such "bad" results.

    Kaspersky and ESET got Advanced+ rating. Which means that they are both great. There is no AV with constant 100% detection rate.

    You just made another thread just like this that got locked. Are you trying to get banned? No AV stops 100% of threats.

    Kaspersky for Mac detection rate is really bad. I have tried to contact Eugene himself through his blog to try to get the company to increase their detection rate. But, they just don't seem care about how their detection rate is in the Mac dept. It really is kind of weird seeing Kaspersky being mid pack. The name is synonymous with #1 or #2 in ratings.

    Webroot nowhere to be seen?

    Realize - Webroot is difficult to test properly for these testers, as it is an execution protection system - for the most part.

    Here is what you do - install a VM, or Sandbox, or something like ShadowDefender. Then install Webroot, set heuristics to max. Then try to infect the machine as badly as you can.. Download every PUP, trojan, malicious file you can find.

    You will likely find what I found.. Webroot only misses PUPS at times, but most other stuff is snagged, and if it isn't, it's dropped into a 'monitored' state. Which then you go into Webroot, set it to broke, and reverse what it has done.

    I literally tried to DESTROY a machine last night I was getting ready to reformat, and Webroot was pretty impressive.. When I added MBAM/Chicalogic, they were batting 100%. After 2-3 hours of banging on the machine with Honeypot threats, I gave up and figured this was a fine combo.

    Don't read into tests too much.

    seriously you're back... no offense man but people have choices. if you dont like eset or wsa DONT use them. simple as that. i use both eset and wsa and in real world use from MANY clients as well as my own machines i dont see these infections. in fact i get FAR less calls the i ever have using eset and webroot for many clients.

    This is far from his first or second time, I'm surprised he wasn't banned already.
