    This poll is a bit more obscure. The antivirus sub forms of wilders is often filled with debates over antivirus testing.

    Generally, sites that produces testing that produce poor results for one's favoured antivirus are not trust. :)

    Poll follows listing some of the more famous test sites. Which ones do you trust?

    There are only two that I trust to give me unbiosed test results. And in my opinion they are ICSA and Virusbulletin. I am sure others will have other opinions but these are the ones I trust.

    But I already have my preferences about the AV's... :D

    Each site has a case for their own testing method. Since I'm not trying to select the best scanner, all the info is interesting, but the relevance is limited.
    That's all there is to it. No need to switch scanners until license renewal time.
