Real-World Malware Protection Report

Magdeburg-based research lab AV-Test.org today released the results of a lengthy real-world malware protection study. This test challenged a dozen major security suites to protect Internet-connected physical computers against up-to-the-minute threats. Each day for 60 days, researchers released 10 fresh threats on the test systems and analyzed each product's ability to detect the threat and to fully block its installation. They also checked for false alarms--valid programs reported as malware. All of the suites did a decent job, though some were significantly better than others.

I agree, I'd really like to know how they would have rated as I'm currently testing ESET now.

Norton 2010 is an excellent product, their biggest problem is that they've put out so much crap over the last 5 years most people aren't willing to even test drive the product...

Indeed but a good Real-Time Product will make sure nothing can be detected (Except tracking cookies) unless if the product is disable by user request.

According to AV-comparatives NIS 2010 did really good even on prevention
