    I ran across an interesting review of AV functions, covering more features than usually considered by VBS and the other AV testing groups. I would be very interested in seeing the response of others to their results. Does it change your thinking about AV? Should it?

    The link is a pdf document:

    In any case, I would really appreciate hearing others thoughts on the report.

    FYI, this review is aimed on enterprise market. Many reviewed functions doesn't apply to home user. ;)

    That report doesn't include F-Prot, NOD32 or BitDefender and others. So, to me, it is not of much use. It doesn't report on av that I use.

    F-Prot,NOD32 and BitDefender are the most common used AVs so if review lacks these its kinda stupid...

    Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. I know for a fact that Mcafee does not have logging for home users AV because I have it installed on one rig.

    Not when it comes to enterprise market, which this test is all about.
