Symantec has 0.5% user dependent. 99.5% + 0.5% = 100%.

Kaspersky = 99.1% + 0.9% = 100%.

Great results for KIS and NIS. The graph is a great way to summarize both protection and the required user interaction.

Avast beating Avira and AVG...............:D

BTW bogdan this is not suites. So its KAV and NAV. Solid performance for NAV.

All these official tests are good but paying for security I am done with. Sure I miss Norton but I feel just as protected with my current config as when I had NIS. Now if Symatec made a free version.......................We could only hope.

Food for thought.

Norton scored .8% higher then Avast. Now is that .8% worth $50. No. Especially when it's for 1 year. Take that $50 and put it towards an external HDD and keep an image.

We'll be hoping forever :)

I will probably go back to NIS once avast expires. NIS just works really well with me.


Great results from KAV and NAV. And I thought KAV was quite weak by all those MRG fails, but i guess they pulled it together.

Actually, in the dynamic test they use suites. It says so in the notes.

Good to see solid detections from all the big players. Why isn't Security Essentials on it?

From graph; Avira was either Blocked or Compromised, with no in-between for User Interaction.

What consists in the "Whole Product Dynamic Test"?

Read the notes pdf stormgtr. Its all right in there.

Another food for though:

No security in the world is 100% effective. So if you pay for your security you can still get infected and you spent money. So its kinda like money wasted. Now if you use a free product and get infected what money did you loose? None. I would go back to NIS myself but even finding it cheap for $40 was getting too much. Well especially now with gas costing almost $5/gal.

I'm ok paying $33 for NIS myself for a year and decided to do so last year, no regrets. I used Avast before that and plan to go back but my plan is to wait a bit and see how polished it becomes before I make a a final decision.

I waste way more money on the snack machines at work in a year than I pay for NIS in a year:p In all seriousness though we all have to weigh if something is worth paying for all the time in life. I and many others have decided this is worth it to us and there is nothing wrong with that, nor is there anything wrong with deciding it's not.

You guys are missing the point. All of you know that I used NIS for almost 2 years and loved it. But in all honesty................Its it worth every penny? Not exactly when you can get the same protection for free. I was going to buy NIS again for another year so I tried various set ups. Went back to NIS then finally said................The heck with it. Go free.

AVG came into my mind this morning but seeing those graphs convinced me that Avast is the best free AV, even way better than MSE,:D

I won't ditch CIS though, ;)

Back on the PC, I can check the PDF now. :p

We'll see how Security Essentials compares next month or so. :p

Maybe when Melih gets off his high horse the will test Comodo. But most companies know of Comodo reputation to argue every test so most likely you will never see Comodo tested by AV Comp.
