That's the true man,someone can accept this,someone can't.
Those are live malware and they are not old.

I rely on sources such as the VB100 test. Avast and Avira both passed recent tests. Comodo has failed each time it has been tested.

I dont trust virusbulletin and AV-comparatives.
How do I know that one of the 43 Av companies did't pay for that.
A lot of money is in game,don't forget that.

Why should we trust you?  Tell us about your training and experience in designing and evaluating malware tests.  We see videos with every conceivable conclusion on YouTube, and unless they supply useful data to the AV vendors there is not much utility in them.  What do you expect users to do with your videos?
Maybe you should try posting on Wilders for a more general audience?

Hi,
no, there are people who don't like the methodology, instead of the results. On-demand detections are an outdated method of testing anti-malware programs, because they don't represent actual protection level in a real-world scenario- in fact it's far far from that. For ex. they don't account for other protection layers apart from signatures and heuristics.

 You turn off real-time shields.....then you turn up real-time shield settings, saying you are maximizing Avast! scan settings?

Please at least read the help file and get a general understanding of how to adjust settings on the AV you are testing.  

Money is "in the game", yes.  Applying that to everyone, how does anyone know you are not getting paid?  

10,000 live samples at once might compromise realistic detection rates maybe?

comodo win  ;D

I have used Avast first "Free" now AIS for about two years.

I am on the Net all over the place, Browser loaded, about 15 hours a day.

Over the two years I don't think that Malwarebytes, SAS, iObit360, HitmanPro and HouseCall all of whom I run only in batch mode have found even a handful of viruses and a dozen or so tracking cookies that Avast let through.  

That works for me. :) :)

tests or the real world?

I will take real world experience every time.

Comparing tests to the real world is like comparing Academicians to successful small business owners.

I will take the word of the business owners every time. :)

OK,you think on-demand scan is old methodology of testing some AV program,I don't agree.If it's like that,why are you watching AV-Comparatives on-demand scan,and virusbulletin tests?
And I have another special test for you as you wanted.
Avast prevention test,against new malware.You said on-demand scan test is not the good test to test AV software,and there you go-AIS PREVENTION TEST:

I am "not", I repeat "not" an expert. But to me it makes sense to believe an independent lab over some "I think I know better" nimrod. The "real" tests speak for themselves. Results and methodology. If you think you know better show your methodology, which goes a long way towards qualifying your results. How were each sample handled, tested and then show some "true" results. Till then leave the testing to the experts.
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

@the OP: I see you're enabling the shields before launching a manual scan, good thinking ;D

AV-comparatives and VirusBulletin are both independent.

Also, like some mentioned, you set avast's real-time scanner to the highest settings, not the on-demand scanner.
We don't know what type of malware you used; if a portion of the samples were PUP's then avast could've detected more, since you didn't set avast to scan for PUP's, like you did with Comodo and Avira.
