    Eset always performs poorly with AV-test conducted tests. Nothing new here.

    Nice review and Kaspersky didn't performed well as expected and also bad for eset. BTW kaspersky is cheapest AV in India(Rs 575~ $12.:cool: good for me:)

    They rated ESET lowest for performance too. I'm not buying into that.

    Some programs are good when they are bad and some are bad when they are good. And Comodo is the only one with fanboys, right? I think I got it!

    Chip Magazine? What kind of chip? Poker chip? Potato chip? Buffalo chip?

    But seriously -- Norton AV is looking better & better. Also, NAV is one of the few AVs that does NOT require a re-boot during install. Ergo, I was able to trial it in Shadow Mode. I was greatly impressed.

    AVG & Avast were not tested. Odds fish!:p
