Agnitum: PC Security Test shows Antivirus Products Being Left Behind

Quote:
The dismal Proactive Security Challenge results turned in by the big AV (Anti-Virus) players in the most recent Matousec.com 64-bit Windows 7 tests are making us wonder whether security companies are really catering to the needs of 64-bit PC/OS users. Are traditional AV vendors even capable of delivering reliable and robust protection to these users?

Parts I and II were interesting, but lack direct hyperlink to the matousec report.

Part III was self-serving advertising, which disperses the previous parts into the clouds.

Windows 7 pro 64bit. (SP1)
 
 

its a bit sad but its true.. because even now when windows 7 64bit was released some years ago and is very good os...
in some areas 64bit support is still not as good as 32bit.. change is so slow. but its changing..

good example of this is 64bit browsers etc.
