    Personally I don't, I have no use for MRG!

    Ultimately it's up to Webroot but I hope they stay away from MRG and this is my opinion as I speak for myself and no one else! :gack:

    Given the past problems with this testing organization I am not surprised they decided not to include WSA due to "resources" issues :rolleyes:

    What problems?
    I think they do a decent job in showing us strengths and weaknesses in different products.

    If the BBC trusts them, then so do I. I also think it's worth mentioning that they always gave Prevx decent reviews in the past.

    I would like them to participate in MRG's tests. BTW, Prevx 3.0 has been one of the top scorers in their tests for quite a while, they declined somewhat in the months before WSA's public beta, but still scored allright.

    Some communication problems and misunderstandings around the faliure of PREVX/WSA and the simulator. There has been some exchange between MRG and PREVXHELP. Nothing serious but I would not be surprised that this may have influenced the sudden drop of PREVX/WSA due to "resource" issues. We are all humans... it can happen. Oh, wait.... may be the selection of the security tools to test was done by alphabetic order? :D :D

    Yea, problems and misunderstandings are only things god invented for us to solve ;)
    Let´s hope WSA will participate in these tests, I find them just as refreshing as the samples in the tests are.

    I honestly don't care if WSA participates in the MRG Flash Tests or not. There, I said it. :cool: As long as my WSA Essential's protected systems stay malware free (which they have so far), that is all that really matters to me in the long-run. :)
