    Well if the result is true it is outstanding, cause they just issued the self-protection module.

    And I had zero issues with it, I have disabled/re-enabled it hundreds times.

    Is this test using current releases?
    I see VBA32 v3.12.8.1 which is 6 months old.
    Current release is 3.12.8.10.
    Maybe just a typo?

    ...and why?

    Honestly i am using Outpost Security Suite and Dr. Web and all i can tell that both are great defending themselfes. The defence of Dr. Web is even so good (perhaps too good) that i have problems uninstalling it.

    I think you should try first and write after.

    umm i had this nightmare with KAV 7 and im not sure it was that, in the end i could nto get it off my system any way i tried, reformat was only solution, KAV 7 was soooo deeply rooted in that it was worse than a virus... so being hard to uninstall isnt always a good sign/good thing and i know KAV 7 self-protection wasn't that amazing so ye...

    Did you use some custom uninstaller/cleaner program or Dr.Web's own uninstaller?

    Congratulations to Dr. Web! Finally a test where Avira hits the bottom! Unbelievable!

    Great work for all russian antiviruses!


    Dr. Web - The "Die Hard" antivirus! :argh:

    You can fool the Doctor, but you can't kill him!

    Not surprised Norton got "Gold"; CCLeaner deleted its startup entry for the fourth time. And I only ran the file cleaning component, not even the registry cleaning component. B4 I thought it was the registry component.

    Is there a free version of Dr.Web with real time protection like Avira or Avast?

    I doubt it was just a typo. Look at avast! version. It's also very old... current one is 4.8.1296...

    have they changed anything with their self protection since? if not, it doesnt matter.

    the test obviously wasn't done on the 16th, just reported.
    maybe the tested versions are of versions the vendors wanted.

    who knows, im sure all is correct for the versions tested, i highly doubt they would make a mistake such as this.

    Well, we can't know now do we? But if you test latest versions like DrWeb 5 it would make sense to use latest versions of others as well.
    There is no rule that every aspect of program has to be documented in changelog. Especially not self-protection.

    no, we dont want to have any relations with anti-malware.ru nor other KasperskyLab projects.

    Kaspersky probably would have done better with the new .506 version which was released mainly to tighten up the self defense.

    -Why a Russian Testing site has almost -Always-
    Russian AntiMalware products in the -First- places of its Tests?

    -It is because it mostly uses Malware coming from Russia
    and therefore, Russian AntiMalware products are -Already-
    Updated/Immunized against these Threats?

    It reminds me of THIS site
    where Both Dr.Web and Kaspersky
    are -ALWAYS- better than anyone...

    I guess this is just a Coincidence...:D

    Um...because they are actually good at what they are meant to be doing?

    You cant immunise for a self defense test...you must already have the infrastructure in place to deal with attacks on your program, it's not like adding a signature.

    If you look here you will see that other "non Russian" av's have also been recipients of awards on many occasions
