    Their on-demand result are the --exact same-- as AV-Comparatives.org. It seems as though ProtectStar is using the same samples as AV-Comparatives or they are using their results.

    well the malware test was done by av-comparatives so it would be surprising if the results would be diffrent ;)

    IBK had said that he would test Trend Micro and Panda. We finally got to see their scores. I was leaning towards a fail for Panda but i guess Panda is better than I thought.

    Testing Trend on one machine at the moment. Runs pretty good, I must admit.

    It appears that NIS 2008 came out #1 going by pages 15-16.

    EDIT: The X was quicker on the draw :)

    Then you must be having sight problems :) The end result (page 17):

    Platz=place, Punkten=points

    1. Platz mit 188.7 Punkten an:
    Norton Internet Security 2008
    2. Platz mit 188.0 Punkten an:
    Trend Micro Internet Security 2008
    3. Platz mit 187.6 Punkten an:
    Avira Premium Security Suite 2008

    So no GDATA and Kaspersky....

    You can have a point there. I already see the Eset crowd praise their Lord with their fifth place in the test. As if it won :)

    How light does it run? I tested 2007 and it was a memory hog and slowed down my box. I think I read that 2008 is much lighter- is that what you are seeing?
