Nice to see AVK 2007 top of the heap as it uses two engines, avast & Kaspersky ;D

Nice result though, room for improvement.

There should be little difference as they both use the same scanning engine and signatures. The only possible difference being the Script Blocking of the Pro version.

As David said... it won't have a difference on detection rate.

Another reason to prefer BitDefender as a second opinion (non-resident scanner) than Antivir.

Unfortunately there is no English trial.
You'll have to do with a German version.

AVK 2007
Two engines? a lot of resources usage. No, thanks.

Do you know that it uses a lot of resources or is this just speculation because of the fact there are two engines ???

Effectively it would be little different that two separate but resident scanners (1 AnitVirus, 1AntiSpyware), however I would imagine (speculation I know) there would be a deal of optimisation so these work well together without a heavy hit on system resources.

Andreas’ results haven’t received that much attention, except for a few publications: PCWelt, VirusBulletin, and Security.nl.

So with the permission of Andreas, I’m publishing a more comprehensive look at the results.

First, some (slightly edited) commentary from Andreas:

Although I cannot read German, it appears that AVG Anti-malware was the one tested since it seems to refer to Ewido anti-spyware as a part of it.
When that is included AVG is excellent, but the free version does not do nearly as well, and not as well as Avast Home.

Regards,
Jerry

 ;)Hi all
new boy on the block
just moved from avg free and left norton after a few nasty trojans and a windows xp recovery disk.
avg free does not have the anti malware and if you download the antimalware which is very good you do not have real time protection after 30 days !!! ???
Real time protection is needed ;D
I would agree that avast is good so far and Having had problems with avg in that it could not remove some nasties and it is all kept in the virus vault.
The avcomparatives august test results due soon should be a good read and i hope avast does well .
As for norton well why do so many new computers come with it !!!!
well done avast and keep up the good work and when will we see tests for all free antivirus companies? :'(
