Windows 7: AV-Comparatives ~ Whole Product Dynamic Test ~ March-June 2011

chevysales, the comparative you referenced has nothing to do with the "Whole Product Dynamic Test".

whs, why is that the chart you would go by? It only tests one aspect of a product.

True, but this is a pretty important aspect. Other measurements like e.g. false positives are relatively irrelevant.

There are many components that it will not test, though, that the Whole Product Dynamic test will, such as reputation systems, behaviour blockers, intrusion prevention systems, etc.

false positives are irelevant?

ok whatever you say.

obviously you have yet to read the "entire" comparitve as refencing one chart and then saying norton was 5% or whatever better is crazy. not even close the entire comparative has to be used as a whole not cherry picking one chart.

and the entire comparive does not think norton is rated like you think. what it misses is weighed as heavily as what it blocks along with how it reacts on a given system, etc.

I always read the whole comparative - and that since years whenever it comes out. It is up to the reader which criteria he/she judges as important and which are not. For me it is the "missed samples" And btw, I use NIS2011.
