    This is quite disappointing to say the least, that a free antivirus which has been out for less time than a paid one, is actually placing higher in terms of heuristics/behavioral detection rate. Now I know that the test says May of 2010, but still, this is quite upsetting.

    The engine in Microsoft Security Essentials is mature and has been around for awhile, starting with Microsoft's corporate security software that branched out into Windows Live Onecare which has then led us to Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Why are you mad? I'm personally happy that a free solution is kicking butt and taking names without nag screens. Even if you have a long subscription to ESET, I still wouldn't worry about it. Antivirus is simply a layer of an overall security strategy and ESET does a wonderful job.

    Longinus,

    We really don't want to compare antivirus programs here.
