    That's a very interesting test. I'm a little surprised at some of the results.
    It would seem that TDS just doesn't ever seem to beat KAV and a couple of others. I wonder why.
    DrWeb has a new engine now and I hope to see it improve. I really like it, but it missed too many in that test.
    Thanks Pieter.
    No surprise about IP Armour. :D

    OOps......Just noticed it's from late last year. Makes me feel better. :D

    Sorry about the age thing, but it was the one test I could find where IPArmor competed. In all fairness, they might have improved in the meantime as well ;)

    Why wouldn't you be using Trojan Hunter? IMHO the best.

    Hi cnm,

    Averyone should go for the app he's most comfortable and happy with. TrojanHunter surely belongs high on the list of best antitrojans. That said: at least the database does need strong expansion in order to cope with other top notch antitrojans. This (still) a hugh discrepancy in regard to for example TDS. Apart from different engine designe (TDS will not even let a nasty .exe file execute, TrojanHunter does, and will react as soon as executed), databases are what antitrojans rely on quite heavily.

    regards.

    Hi Paul,

    I agree with TH's need to expand its ruleset. That said, I note that Magnus is coming out with new rulesets at a maddening pace these days ;).

    Warmly, Ran

    Hi Ran,

    Updates do come fast indeed. As for the totals of "primaries" in comparison with other antitrojans: take into account the different ways those are calculated. TDS will mention several "variants" as a primary as well; TH often mentions just one (coping the full "variants" range). Thus: simply comparing the primary lists of several antitrojans is on most ocassions not providing a real comparison.

    regards.

    paul
