    First , It is completely unprofessional to test BETA product with other final products . ESS is the onliest from these that is beta

    Second , Third ..........

    I'd be interested in knowing the methodology they used. Every serious tester discloses it as the methodology must be verifiable in order for the test to be taken seriously.

    they include 'beta' against Dr Web but not ESS.
    Plus this test looks like it was performed on beta1.

    I don't even know if ESS is supposed to protect against all these, or whether just ESS beta1 didnt have them fully implemented:

    1. The change permits access to files and registry keys.
    2. Modification / Remove module.
    3. Removing antiviral bases.
    4. Modification / deleting important registry keys.
    5. Completion processes.
    6. Process modification / code.
    7. Stripped drivers.

    Yes the methodology is crucial, but an even more important issue is the integrity of the testers. The numbers (results) could be constructed any way the testers desired, to show a preconceived outcome. Perhaps they were, perhaps they weren't, but who knows for certain?

    I have used ESS for several months on my laptop, and the newest Beta version works better on my specific machine than any security suite I have tested, and I have tested virtually all of them.

    I am not sure I understand these results? Last time I checked, ZoneAlarm was using Kaspersky Anti-Virus in it's suite and ZoneAlarm's firewall has faired better in recent testing then Kaspersky! o_O

    Even as for beta-version ESS has not bad held on. We shall look, that will turn out in the ending. I hope it will be better. In fact all know, that at present NOD32 v2 it is possible to kill two lines from a command line. :)
