Andreas Marx of AV-Test.org has completed his latest tests on AV engines. From his notes:

    We tested 29 products for the detection of most recently seen verified working Win32 PE malware of the last 12 month -- separated into the four categories backdoors, bots, trojan horses and worms.

Not bad 8th of 29 tested and avast with 'no heuristics' gained 96.32%

Products were set with their most aggressive detection options, such as using all heuristics and testing inside archives.

Limiting the list to products that we've reviewed in PC Magazine, the top scorer was Avira's Antivir, with 99% detection overall. F-Secure, Symantec, and Kaspersky all came close with 98% detection. Avast!, AVG, and BitDefender weren't far behind at 96%. From that point, though, scores start to trail off. Panda got 92%, Trend Micro got 91%, NOD32 88% and McAfee 87%. Microsoft's OneCare didn't come in dead last, as it did in an earlier test, but it only detected 81% of the threats.
great news for avast!-it just keeps getting better and better ;D
thanks for the info and links :)

But way above Nod32, very strange, but don't forget this is just detection alone and doesn't speak for flexibility, configuration and specific protection in certain areas, web shield, instant messaging, p2p, etc. which in some cases others don't have.

Detections in isolation aren't everything, support is another thing.
