This "test" was discussed a number of times already - it's completely flawed.

Well, when you really get down to the nitty-gritty, aren't they all?  I can make stats do whatever I want them to, it's all how you prepare the scenario.  Please don't quote some "independent" tests.  It's like Car & Driver giving "Car of the Year" to the Dodge Omni many years ago.  All the data has to be taken into perspective.
The bottom line is does the product do the job for you?

This test was proven flawed. Use av-comparatives.org or av-test.org instead. If antivirus companies and antivirus experts trust and support these two testers, then they're certanly doing it right.

Please see
hxxp://www.viruslist.com/en/analysis?pubid=174405517
which essentially concurs, but points out ..."Sadly, tests which provide an in-depth, accurate picture of how products react in typical situations barely exist. The one exception that we know of is the Test Lab at Moscow State University"...

But this is way off base now, I was merely pointing it out because it has been updated recently.

Done deal folks.
