    Do you think the folks over at Avira ever get bored with all these excellent results they get?:p

    What interested me was the fact that there was no need for heuristics from Avira.I haven't read the full report to know how old this malware set was but they're obviously doing something right.;)

    I invite antivirus vendors to join my testing platform. Before they offically agree to take part in, I will not add them into the testing list.

    GDATA had accepted our invitation of joining the testing and they will appear in the new test of March.

    I will send my invitation again to BD and AVAST and I will wait for their information:)

    Please download the pdf report:
    http://www.pcsecuritylabs.net/document/PCSL Total Protection Testing 2009 NO.2.zip

    And you can find the info about the malware set in the 2nd page:)

    Well thankfully this time poor Avira won't have to face someone's wraith hopefully for winning again. :D

    Can you also post your link towards the tests on malwarecity forum ( http://forum.malwarecity.com/ ) with the explanation why BitDefender is not in the tests ?
    Maybe you will make them accept the invitation :D

    We hope- but then again, it is fun for some to continue to promote AVs that have either withdrawn from most tests and/or perform poorly on tests where they still participate.

    Avira has an unrivaled record of achievement- and for some, that is something they cannot stand.

    We do not force AV vendors to take part in our testings. Whether to join or not is their choice and we will not test the products without some kind of agreement:D

    BTW, you are so cute and have a nice day:)

    Have you invited FRISK/F-PROT?

    2 things are out of the ordinary, 1 100% detectionrate has never been seen on a test before from an anti-virus 2 how come so few false positives overall?

    Whoa! Wilders-love-match.com :-* ha!

    Good to see the second lot of testing. Well done to Avira, Kaspersky and Panda.

    Agree, 100% is rare, the AVira9 is even better on heuristics

    see my little not statistical relevant test with Avira9 beta https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1400544&postcount=9

    What about CIS, could that be included also?

    Cheers

    so there really is a golden bullet that provides 100 percent protection and no false positives. Knew it all the time.:D

    Believe it or not, a few on this board have basically argued that because their AV had lousy test scores and Avira just had to be cheating. Helps when you know what's coming! :D

    Hello trjam

    You are right!
    We have not enough sample,and clean sample not test in dynmaic.
    So,Avira no any false positives,if clean sample test with dynmaic.
    I don't think so, Avira no any false positives.

    :D

    Then I suggest you either

    #1 Read it until you understand my point
    #2 follow these steps: http://www.learnenglish-a-z.com/

    At some point you will turn around and realize there is 0 talk about the results of other vendors, how good they are, why they failed, why the succeeded, where they can improve. Infact it's just one big "we love avira" thread. Nothing educational in this thread at all. Not even any proper debate.

    My question remains unanswered.
