    Scroll down a few sections - for some reason the site shows the XP April 2013 results below the January 2013 Android results.

    WOW, COMODO only 1 point from 100%! Did not expect that. Lots of false positives though. Did expect that.

    Hmm excellent results for Comodo.

    Not much difference between AVG Free and Internet Security.

    Nothing is 100%, a load of dumb nonsense.

    1/6 for scoring 85% of 133 files..... wow, 133...
    97% detection of 22,517 files.

    Yeah this clearly adds up to 1/6.

    Comodo's strong protection is finally certified. I hope they will drop the FP rate.

    Not at all - 100% of those particular samples. Why would they lie about that?

    85 / 86 is tooo low score.

    Protection against 0-day malware attacks, inclusive of web and e-mail threats (Real-World Testing)
    ((Industry average: 93 Samples used: 133) => in % = 85 / 86
    -----
    Detection of widespread and prevalent malware discovered in the last 4 weeks (the AV-TEST reference set)
    (Industry average: 99 Samples used: 22,517) => in % = 97 / 96

    I think it's time to remove Zonealarm and replace it by AVG or Avast. :)

    Just wait that the new beta will be out (www.zonealarm.com/beta). It will fix the bugs in the Kaspersky SDK engine ;)
