@ thread title....LOL
.....mmmmm, not really, no.
the most important things in antivirus are detection and removal
Really? And here I was banking on Prevention...
Honestly, those tests are in part irrelevant shortly after they are released. That is just how fast things move. So tests from December hold even less weight. Add to that the fact that you are looking at Avast! 6 test. (ver. 7 is out now, with many improvments).
Plus, you will get even more confused looking at focused tests. They in no way measure a products effectiveness as a whole. If you must
look at tests, at least you are looking at what is probably the best Testing Firm in AV Comparatives....but look at their whole product dynamic tests for a more accurate picture. Even then, as previously mentioned, you will be looking at Avast! 6 tests.
