    Hello Forum,
    Today Twister definitions added: I don't think any other Antivirus adds the amount of definitions like Twister.

    Depends how you calculate it, some vendor might add one signature to cover hundreds of malware files.

    Twister is a very good AV and has a very good support. They get the samples and add in minutes or hours.

    It's true -- no doubt they know what their product is worth. Untested. A crap shoot.

    Cheap, yes -- but is it a bargain? o_O

    I knew it. They are relatively unknown but what I like about them is the constant responses, good amount of signature added, and it runs fairly light on 2 home computers. Mr. Bright Chu of Filseclab is always responsive and emails sent are always replied. If I can garner this kind of relationship, I am happy to spend the $29.99. They are also in the midst of creating a newer version so it's not like they will be out of business. To me, they are trying to get some market share and I don't mind helping them out. :)

    Those results above are unusual. o_O

    ClamWin is nearly the same as Avira Free. While KingSoft is far ahead of Norton, McAfee and Nod32 (which is almost the lowest).

    I agree I found it at malware- test lab. I really do not believe it either but just for general purpose it shows twister its the only test I see for twister.However I suspect all the AV score better then this.To take a wild assumption my guess would be twister in the mid to high 80 percentile.

    Then my guess would be Eset scoring less than 70 %. True?

    You very well can be wright thats why i take these test with grain and salt and just use what runs problem free on my machine.The test I would consider to be true is by certain members in here where there is truth and unbiased results.That said I would have no problems running twister its updating is great and runs light on my system when I tried it.
