    I'm no AV expert, but the test sounds pretty good to me too; but the above statement is discouraging to me. I prefer as little system drag as possible.

    Panda isn't bad at detection I would rate it top 5 for sure... But it's dragging peoples computers, and I personally noticed stablity problems :(

    Every test I've seen does not support that statement.

    Truprevent is a IDS system, AV comparative only does straight scans.

    Oh then I misunderstood it, I thought it was some kind of advanced Heuristics. :)

    In a way you can say its heuristics (heck everything can be seen as a form of heuristics). But it's not the normal kind used in scans. It's more like a behaviourial blocker.

    That is why if you have another AV (not Panda), you can actually buy Truprevent and use it without buying the whole Panda Antivirus.
