    Yes, I too would love to see a test on Panda. Don't see too many tests for Panda. To test Platinum would be great, but I would settle for Titanium. ;)


    P.S. How do we get the English version of the test on Bit Defender?

    The new McAfee engine came available for update. My wife downloaded it with the current DAT file and McAfee shut off. Something about being unable to find mcpal.dll or something like that. We tried rebooting a couple of times with no luck. At the moment, she's using her AVG backup antivirus until I can track down the .dll problem. Other than that, I see no other resolution other than uninstalling McAfee, removing all mcafee dll references and trying to reinstall it ..... or move to Kaspersky which I use.

    Thanks for the link Tony. That helped. Sorry I took so long to reply. I was out of town for a few days. Just got back.

    To everyone from Firefighter!

    Excellent unpacking for NOD32 v2.0, I really couldn't expect that!

    Is 100% correct, but for some weird reasons a lot of people are still thinking McAfee AV is not good at all.

    Maybe they like McAfee when they get it for free? :cool:

    Like I wrote long time ago: McAfee is a top-notch AV with strong heuristics! :)

    Ciao,

    More likely, bad memories from previous McAfee experience. I use to not trust McAfee ever since 5.0, until years later when I was forced to use McAfee VS Enterprise 7.1. (Though I don't agree with 8.0 SC)

    And again another part in our test series... FP-WIN v5.14e:

    http://www.rokop-security.de/main/article.php?sid=735&mode=thread&order=0


    Well, we have to reconsider our selection of the samples in our testset so it's more likely that we start over again with a new testset. However, the new results won't be fully comparable to those of our actual test series and therefore we will have to concentrate on the more popular programs which then have to be tested again.

    Besides that, I actually thought about a complete new series of tests comparing only free antivirus solutions.

    Howdy meneer and all,

    This site and Rokop have made for some interesting reading over the weekend. Great stuff and keep up the good work.

    Quick question... has anyone conducted an investigation into the updated heuristics of KAV 5.0? From what I remember reading it has been beefed up a fair bit. Or am I mistaken? That might help put to rest some of the NOD/KAV discussions that I've come across.

    Any comments from the peanut gallery?

    With KAV 5 as our most recent test, our current test series is complete. At present, we are working on a new test series which might be very interesting for some of you - watch out ;)
