    Just arrived!
    Great performance from BitDefender,
    Symantec and F-Secure are doing extremely well again.
    Take a look at av-comparatives.org.

    The only reviews for September that I'm seeing right now are for corporate or mobile. Which review are you talking about?

    Many of them are close to the same, but Avast was pretty far below. I wonder why the detection is like this? I'm a user and want to continue using Avast, especially since the page hanging problem seems to be fixed.

    Not enough details. I would like to see what files they used to test.

    Tried McAfee last month for some 20 days and tested against MDL/Malc0de/Malwareblacklist links. Believe me it worked seamlessly well.

    Thanks for sharing ur experience :)


    Can anyone clarify whether Real world test include Detections only or Detection + Removal ( see if malware is actually removed after infection ) as done in AV-Test ?

    I think it only tells you how many has been blocked and how many compromised your system. If it actually compromises your system that means it cannot detect that and so no question of removal.

    ACtually, By Removal I mean that AV reports that it detected the malware and have quarantined but it still exists . so technically, this detection should not be counted.

    Well it doesn't matter if a product scores 100 in every single test for the past years, if the god damn thing slows you down into near negative productivity range then it is literally useless.

    So is that still the case with McAfee? Or have they manage to make some leap under intel?

    You mean system impact? Actually in does not consume much RAM these days, but consumes noticeable CPU in times. Mainly if the system is running for a long time and is multitasking. I has turned on a maximum protection settings (forgot its name) for realtime protection, don't know if that's the reason because it did make my browsers non-responsive (~5 secs) at the beginning of downloading any executable files.

    Attempted to use BitDefender 2012 Total Security and it completely made web browsing un-usable.

    It seemed very light on my desktop when I ran it for a while back in May of last year.

    Has Avast failed you? If not don't worry about it.

    It was only for the month. Avast will prove to be good over the whole calendar year.

    Hope you are right. There's been a lot of development, so it would be a shame for the detection not to go up.
