Wait, let me understand, you uninstalled Kaspersky Total Security because of this "Metal test"?

My license for Kaspersky was close to expiring and ,I had gotten the free 2 year give away for SecureAplus (at this site)and also a Eset Internet security for 2 years dirt cheap , applied Roboman"s configuration and very happy,but yes the failed test did influence me Thanks

Fortiguard "Metal" is a simple EICAR test using different compression formats, just chill guys; this test doesnt say anything about third party solutions protection or capabilities.

Ps: I am a ESET user and dont think it has any meaning if it is passing or failing this test.

The tests I made with Intrusta antivirus, was simply because I had no documentation on how well Intrusta was performing, so in this case I judged Intrusta inferior, as it failed ALL of the tests, and my normal AV NOD32 took all of them except one. Intrusta use Avira engine? That sound mystical, then it should at least have reacted on some of the eicar files? But then I dont know what and how Fortiguard has manipulated the thingy.

You are very welcome.

Intrusta will not be used on my computer ever. Failing eicar tests? Maybe they would argue, that it don't respond because eicar is no real threat. But I think that is a bad move. eicar was made to let people check whether their antivirus was installed the right way, and responded to different threats. Who nose?:)
