I have never really understood the av-comparatives scanning methodology, even less so when two graphics show different results, 97.4% blocked and a further 2% dependant on user settings, making a total of 99.4%

The problem is that it isn't clear, less so clear when true indian posts an image of the Annual chart rather than the latest monthly chart where the results are quite good, but I have never help much faith in any AV testing as I honestly don't believe that they can replicate real world usage.

Agree with you david....AVC is considering a User dependency over a miss  ::) which is a wrong way of testing....and who knows how they replicate the real world usage...as these days most malware spread via legit sites...  ;)

I even doubt that 2% UD is way too much...as avast! itself is user friendly and doesnt ask much questions and I kind of suprised over the 2 years of version 6 and version 7...all my clients running avast! never got infected.....and i have 1 client who has been running avast! ALONE for 2 years and he is also perfectly clean  :o I cant believe that!!! with so much of malware coming out daily...

If they don't state what that user dependency is it is hard to say if your average user would have it on, so there may be a justification (no matter how slim) for a miss to be the greater possibility.

Which is why I said I don't understand their methodology.

Hi, the full report will come out soon. The graph is intended for those which already know the background of the test (e.g. read previous reports) and to see progress over time (after the report is released and understood).
