    impressive from drweb once again, shame it was 4.44 tested, but nevermind :)

    defensewall as everyone knew, achieved high scores, that thing is a beast, just a little annoying to run. lol

    take away the paranoid detectors and AV's that include hips modules, and its AVG and bitdefender who achieve great results with drweb just behind ;)

    eset? :thumbd: o_O

    .. but then again, its just another one of those tests :blink:

    the more i see them, the more im left un-impressed and to be honest, un-interested lately. :doubt:

    You forgot your favourite Avira :D who has for now only the guard which is still very good
    Bitdefender has a behaviour blocker and a registry control.I don't know if those components ware used and what was considered as pass if so as i didn't understand the methodology exactly.

    I really would like another "professional" company to do tests, not this virustotal/honeypot/corrupt files nonsense.

    Also most people won't come into contact with the test set files or similar unless they're going into areas where they exist.

    lol, totally expected, just read between the lines...

    "Avira Premium Security has been effective because of the high level of detection of exploits (see Table 3 of the full record of the test), and packed objects (specifically, the detection of malicious software used in the Packer)."

    it does not offer good protection, regardless of what anyone on this forum may say. o_O

    also, i forgot about BitDefenders behaviour controls, so AVG it is then :thumb:

    even more impressed with the good olde doctors result :)

    They tested NIS2008 instead of NIS2009. The differences between SONAR on those two versions is night and day. Thats why NIS did so poorly with 08.. Why in the world do these "tests" compare 08 and 09 products of different vendors.

    hmm maybe, but it was up against drweb 4.44 which is an old engine now.

    From 34 samples Kaspersky failed just 1, for 3 there is only partially infection (main infection is avoided and system files and core of OS are intact), rest it passed, I am really glad to see someone done on execution test, This is real and complete degree test. BRAVO thanks and keep it up :thumb:
    BTW where is Comodo
    P.S. From those kind of tests people can clearly see that Matousec tests (or at least scoring methodology) do not worth too much, look at Outpost

    Avira did superb as usual with its high level of detection, it was but to be expected.

    Prevx found fault with a test that doesn't show them in the best light. That's hardly an objective opinion. On the other hand, I notice that those apps which do well do NOT find fault.

    If you had bothered to read the article, you would see that often an
    AV's techniques cannot be implemented by an online scanner.
    It has nothing to do with Prevx.

    Regards :)

    yes, I have already seen

    but I do not find this part of the text

    where?
    In the "Methodology used in testing antiviruses for the treatment of active infections"?
    or "Analysis of active infections treatment test results and awards"?
    or in report pdf?

    thanks :)
