    Comments on results:


    1,Only five tools were able to detect more than 90% of trojans. Those tools are: Kaspersky Antivirus, Tauscan, TrojanRemover, Trojan Defence Suite (TDS), Dr. Web. These tools will likely find 9 of 10 trojan horses on your system.
    2,Still (and this is inevitable fact) there are no applications which are able to receive 100% detection rate meaning users still have to use third party programs like personal firewalls to protect their computers against trojan horses.
    3,AntiTrojan and Trojan Hunter have hardly surpassed 50% mark what questions detections rate of these tools.
    4,Norton Antivirus (as well as some other tools) improved its trojan detection rate comparing to our previous comparison.
    5,We have informed all developers about this comparison and sent them a link to trojans archive to let them update their trojan signatures.

    :rolleyes: :D :D
