    Tested real world situation during 17 days see http://nsslabs.com/host-malware-protection/consumer-anti-malware.html

    Results:
    Trend Micro 1 (96,4%), Kapersky (87,8%), Norton (81,8%), McFee (81,6%), Norman (81,2%), F-secure (80,0%), AVG (73,3%), Panda (72,0%), Eset (67,9%).

    Note:
    Real life testing is always influenced by the customer base and the AV's home of origin, so a good AV of China can score less in a real life test in the US using honeypot/malware data out of the US.

    Still remarkeable differences, some AV vendors (Trend Micro added signiture within 6 hours, average was 31 hours, although AVG took over 40 hours to update missing sigs).
