    PCWorld came out with updated 2011 AV tests (done by av-test.org) a couple of days ago.

    Woopsies, that chart is from December 27, 2010 :D
    Sorry man, it's from another article of PCWorld. :)

    If you read carefully, you will notice this:
    "In order of ranking, here are the antivirus products we reviewed."

    So basically, you're looking at the order of the results meaning:
    1. Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2011
    2. BitDefender Antivirus Pro 2011
    3. G-Data AntiVirus 2011
    4. Kaspersky Anti-virus 2011
    5. Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus Plus 2011
    6. Avast Pro Antivirus 5
    7. Panda Antivirus Pro 2011
    8. Avira AntiVir Premium 2011
    9. Eset NOD32 Antivirus 4
    10. GFI Vipre Antivirus 4
    11. Checkpoint ZoneAlarm Antivirus
    12. Comodo Antivirus 2011 Advanced
    13. Webroot Antivirus With Spysweeper 2011

    Wait man!
    That picture is from a previous article, dated December 27, 2010.
    BUT the scores are taken directly from that article if i'm correct (I read like 5 reviews from the new one and they're the same scores)

    Also remember they changed the rankings.
    Some products now are higher and other ranked lower :D
    The new ranking is posted in my previous post above!!

    Norton was weak. Its new Norton Insight and SONAR 2 are excellent proactive features and very difficult to beat.

    is what I've been trying to say ... :thumb:

    I believe in the test since it is made by AV-Test.org - very reputable testing organisation . The reviews are good but I am really starting to dislike the "interface part" - they talk about the interface in alsmost every product and seem to think the design is really really important , which is not that true. Their 3 main cathegories are Performance , Protection and Design ?

    I always have said Panda AV's (I mean all of them, which includes: Panda AV, Panda IS, Panda Cloud AV, Panda Global Security) have always been very slow in the On Demand scan department :)

    That's based on my experience :D
