@op: wanne make a bet that you will get infected very very soon with those useless AV's?
The Graph is from 2010/2011 it was presented in the end of 2010, did you ever bothered to look at infection removal rankings?
or your friend is better in judge then official labs? lol! and and yes, they are using the same version of Norton as now for the testing, version 2011
.Chek out the system impact of AV's - performance score of Norton as well, in short - none, you said resource hog?
Here is what the rankings means. On Demand:
Raw detection capabilities of signitures when fully updated with latest definitions.
Retrospective: Capabilities of heuristics and generic signatures against new unknown malware.Dynamic:
Real world protection capabilities using all components of the security software to demonstrate effectiveness in the real world.Removal:
Effectiveness at cleaning a system from malware, the higher the score the better the product is at disinfection and removal of malware trace elements without damaging the system in the process.Performance score
(higher is better): All performance results are normalised to use the same AV-Comparatives scale (and takes scanning speed into account)
False Positives: Mean false positives across all tests with such information available. The results help to show which products are more prone to false positives and are not an exact result.King of Tests:
Personalised scoring system in an attempt to determine which antivirus solutions did the best across all the categories equally.
