Discussion in 'ewido anti-spyware forum' started by siliconman01, Jul 19, 2006.
Hmm...The test results fluctuate quite a bit. It seems the stable top winners are Trend Micro Anti-Spyware, Webroot Spy Sweeper, PC Tools Spyware Doctor, Sunbelt CounterSpy...
Perhaps when they get around to checking an up to date version....results might be somewhat different
Taken from the PDF test results:
Hope they will be testing new versions of Spy Sweeper, Spyware Doctor and Ewido in the next round...
I hope so.
But that is disappointing considering my impression that Ewido 3.5 is top notch.
Hi, folks: Do you know why Has Ewido fallen behind the others on this test? It is the fault of the new owner; Ewido was originally an anti-trojan app, and had been until the day it was sold out to the COMPANY, and subsequently was facelifted and ID changed to anti-malware,then antispyware. The tester branded this ill-fated app with new rivals and failed the test misesably. It was an anti-trojan app and is a such now and will remain as a such in the future. That is why products such as Trojan Hunter, BOclean ets were not included in that test.
Ewido had been stronger in anti-trojan than in anti-spyware and it need to catch up a bit.
