    edited to disable link according to the points made below and by IBK - rather not have them getting referrals from here - Detox

    I have never seen a freeware in these tests either.
    IBK's link shows clearly why.

    There is so much money that can be made out of such things!
    Again, the internet has so much INFORMATION, but at the same time, so much MISINFORMATION!!!! :)

    I think they concentrate more on full suite options rather than detection.

    TopTenReviews is listed on Eric Howes Spyware Warrior Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware page under the "Sites" section. The reason for this is the site pushes rogue/suspect products and the webmaster is an affiliate for the products "reviewed." Under their anti-virus review, Nod32 is rated 9th behind such heavyweights as eTrust EZ & AVG Pro. Well that's good enough for me! Maybe it's time to think about an upgrade. I run Nod32 now but why not move up to 3rd ranked AVG Pro? He said, tongue planted firmly in cheek.
