As has been explained multiple times in several threads on this board. Don't trust those tests. I am working with comps for almost 25 years, I've seen tons of test like that. They are all very subjective. Why?

1] They never tell exactly what virus examples where used for the test
2] They never tell what settings in the av is used
3] They (almost) never tell with what version of the virus database was used

Should I go on? No, I don't think so, or this would become the largest post ever made on a board ;)

4) It seem's that some "testers" are hired from competitors (IMHO)  ;) ;)

When avast! obtains virusbulletin everybody applauds
when it doesn't everybody finds many faults in this test./
Avast is very good product because avast team reacts quickly by learning this forum.

I will continue to applaud avast for the awards...
But I will continue to doubt about how the tests are conducted.
Sorry if we look like proud and without himility... But it's our opinion, isn't it Eddy?  8)
