I think people should be looking at this: http://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php

Avast did excellent..it missed nothing and now the only thing we need to work on is the user dependent 1.4% factor and besides that if you actually know how to use and answer avast alerts then it isnt a huge deal really and Me thinks we did better than the paid products in terms of compromised ratio I guess.  ;D

Baseline blockage in the graph was 90% (and) that was solely provided by an up-to-date Windows 7 system. 

If you look, AhnLabs provided no additional protection.  Also, the pdf link provided for March 2013 (page 3) does qualify the findings by stating that a/v programs that rated 100% in this test may not do so in the future.

The 90.3% baseline protection was provided by MSE in Windows 7 and Windows Defender in Windows 8.

To me these figures are useless since they where supplied by the vendor.

MSE didn't compete in the test but was tested. Where does it state that these numbers were provided by the vendor?

100% in that single test is quite within the realms of possibility.100% in the real world might be a whole different story of course.

Bitdefender lost their 100% rank, that is surprising  ;D F-Secure has been making some improvement over some time now. Yes Avast has got 100% this time :) Glad for Avast

The virus was detected but user action was required, possibly?

According to Vlk's reply on wilders,they are most likely inconclusive sandbox analysis pop up that gives option to close and continue execution.  :)
