    If these are the same samples, then Avira also improved and Kaspersky, Norman and K7 deteriorated.

    Yes I will also test Ad Aware Free.

    Guys, I have just tested Panda and Advanced System Protector (systweak). After Digital Patrol, Advanced System Protector shocked me in detection considering it is a companion anti malware and many consider it as a rogue.

    Results have been updated there.

    I know you tried Prevx but it has limits to avoid abuse that's probably why it stalled IMO during your test! https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1697360&postcount=2

    Well if one had that many infections no one could trust a full clean up I know I wouldn't! I would wipe the system and reformat and install the OS again! But in the case of Prevx it would remove 256 infections at a time but it would be rare to have that many or more and if that was the case for a paid user and Prevx didn't clean it a Prevx engineer would remotely connect to your machine and clean it free of charge! ;)

    Would you consider testing 'Vipre' anti-virus? It really hasn't been tested for detection ability.

    @TH: Now I understand...:) I have another question. f someone is infected with brontok kind of worm, then he can have thousands of worm. As these are same kind of malware, will it be counted as thousand malware or just a single malware?

    @doc77: I will test Comodo.
    @Malcontent: I think I will test Lavasoft Free only which has Vipre engine.
    @reinwald: I think they will have the same detection.
    Guys first let me complete the list, then if I eind time I will compare versions.

    Just to add about Twister, although Twister is not very common when someone tests it on Youtube for an example is does very well. On top of that the real time is protection is strong plus the cloud scanner really helps it.

    I could not find time to test its realtime protection but indeed it has lots of features. The interface isn't professional yet..:D
