    P.S
    But so MANY new Names this time!

    ZeoBit? Never heard of them before....as well as PC Booster and Clearsight.

    Wow o_O


    Are you sure, you don't think avira free performed better with the latest test :)

    Zeobit only seems to be for the mac - my google skills failed me at first ;/

    It appears a majority of products detection rates have gone down.
    Ikarus detected 87%. Last test if I remember correctly it was around 95%.
    Kingsoft lol. :p

    Thanks for this news...
    You see that Avira Free is better than Premium? It's strange...

    ESET is the record winner of VB100 awards at Virus Bulletin, Not to mention that almost always is in the highest RAP :)

    Thanks for the links Sg09.

    That PC Booster website really looks like a rouge with flashy graphics and all,
    But I know it's not so no panic:D

    And ClearSight seems to offer a Free version for non commercial use but no download links what I can see.

    And Optenet has partnerships with Kaspersky, Sophos, and Sourcefire to name a few. But who knows wich engine it really uses.

    Yeah, that makes sense...for some reason I thought previous RAP tests had Avira free and Premium, not Pro. If that's the case, I wonder why the change?

    VB decided to make some more cache to give their employees for the Christmas and NY holidays by letting more and more products to be tested - how can they test so many products and so many unknown names . These "products" are most probably used by less than 0.5 percent of the people worldwide - who cares about their results except from the vendors themselves.

    if something is unclear you should send an email to VirusBulletin and ask for clarification.

    smaller vendors do have to start from somewhere. maybe among them their is the eset or kasperksy of the future. u never know u might end up using one of these products in the near future...

    Endow me with stock in a company that sells any product with usage by 0.5% of the worldwide population and I will shortly become a multi-multi-billionaire.

    Yes I am sure ESET's dot is a little higher than the Avira Free dot, Clearly:D

    On that graph, X scale = Proactive detection; Y scale = Reactive detection. Therefore "best" would be highest (reactive) AND rightmost (proactive). On that combined basis, Avira free is slightly better than ESET on proactive detection, & ESET is slightly better reactively.

    Reactive = how fast the developer REACTS so as to issue sigs for a newly discovered malware

    Proactive = The ability of the given antivirus to DETECT a new/unknown malware (for which sigs don't yet exist) by use of heuristics/emulation et alia.

    With such narrow differences between ESET & Avira, on both axes, I for one would opt for the app which has better PROACTIVE detection. Namely, given ONLY these 2 choices, I would go for Avira. HOWEVER, the overall difference in test results of these 2 apps doesn't amount to a pool of warm spit.
