I guess I interpret your post differently that you. Your post and the title of this thread
has nothing in it about "Panda id Improving"

@HS2234: dun worry too much about the few % difference between panda and avast. this .8% is insignificant as this is just a signature test.

this difference could easily vary with a different reputable AV tester eg. AV-TEST may have the opposite results.

moreover, this is just an on-demand scan. no heuristics/behaviour protection is considered...this means essentially avast autosandbox/filerep features are not avaliable to help avast in this 'protection' results.

The only "tests" that I rely on is my own experience. avast has never, ever let me down. Those tests are in a controlled environment. My tests involve my own personal use. I used to put a lot of weight on those tests. Now I no longer care. What matters to me is that my computer has been infection free for over two years. I trust avast. Period.  :)

.8% is statistically insignificant. And, the test does not tell which samples were missed or detected by each vendor. For all we know, avast! could have detected a more dangerous sample that panda missed or vice versa.

HI I have used avast for a few years now probably going on six years now and I must say that I have never had a dangerous virus on my computer or malware as we all now antivirus software is not 100% perfect.  The reason I stay will avast antivirus software free is because Panada free is not as old as avast and panda does not have the experince in removing viruses malware.  Avast has been in this game for a long time.

I don't really put much stock in antivirus tests.  I go with what works and I will never trade avast free for any antivirus on the internet I stick with what works.

You are a great company Avast Software
keep up the great work Avast team.

Alwil software = 1988
Panda = 1990

so Panda does not have the experince in removing viruses malware?      ;D
