    Lavasoft better than Emsisoft?
    Somehow I doubt it....

    Agreed.

    And the Kaspersky result is inconsistent with pretty much every other legitimate test.

    I am not a test basher for tests from the known testing organizations. But I do give this test less weight in my consideration of products.

    Well, it looks like a whole out house full of products, not just Lavasoft, are "better" than Emsisoft.

    Except for that the "averages quadrant" chart represents a cumulative summary of a span of the weighted average results of tests on different Windows workstations and a server, and Linux, for a slew of different versions and offerings within vendors' products.

    The only way to compare VB100 RAP is to study the chart and table for any one specific test, the most telling being the metrics for the Proactive Set +2. This is the one that shines the light on the efficacy of ancillary solutions beyond the realm of signature/definition detection. Where 99% detection with the latest defs can drop off to 55-85% after disabling updates for several days.

    For so-called experts on this security forum, you guys are easily duped. :rolleyes:

    Cheers.

    No.
    If something is wrong, it's not in my post, it's in Virus Bulletin webpage:

    VB100 is just on-demand test....no execution of samples.

    Same result for Avast in real-world protection test AV-C. :( Years ago Avast had great results in on-demand tests as well.

    I know...but no tests these days are 100%...Every test just has only 100 or 1000 samples collected and tested in 1 month whereas everday more than 450,0000 viruses come out.Drop in the bucket.

    I know but Avast has been better, nowadays it's just mediocre.

    Avast remains a competent antivirus in my own experience, though it won't top any chart in terms of absolute detections.
