These test only show resuts performed on specific malware samples. It does not reflect the real life performance of products. A 0.3% difference does not mean that Eset is better than Norton or vise versa

Norton blocked 99.5% and the other 0.5% was user dependent.

That would mean that, in some cases Norton can have a protection rate of 100%? (Of course, the user of the PC would have to have experience)

You read my post wrong..Norton has HIGHER percentage than ESET..not the other way around. I personally do not recommend Norton but, I know it is a good software.

what are you going by?

you may want to read the entire comparitive.... nav missed more than MSE did

about 5.3%................ too large of an amount for many, acceptable for others.

avast actually showed the greatest percantage overall.

did you really think nav beat out all the rest by such a crazy large amount? if you did this isn't a put down but you really must re-read the entire comparitve and understand it as a whole.

i am not a nav hater quite the contrary i would be using the av app if MSE wasn't free.

thats an important one for sure...

the entire comparative must be taken into account which shows many close in percentages of what it stops but a bigger spread as in chart above for what they miss.
