Re: WHY?

You have the free edition of Avira, which does not detect spyware.

Re: WHY?

N.AV. Quick Scan only Scans the most-likely places; the other Scanner obviously does more of the Scanning Files of it's, i assume, Quick Scan (not Norton).

Re: WHY?

Different AV software have different methods of counting files scanned. Also, are you sure that you only scanned the archive wiht NIS and Avira?

Re: WHY?

You cannot compare av's side by side. Every av is different ans scans different. AVira free is no where near as complete as Avira premium. I have AVira Premium,NOD32 and KAV. They all have different results but as long as they find the nasty's it doesnt matter.

By the way. I see a big difference between scanning the .rar and the unzipped samples.

By the way it was catching 3226 samples here

Re: WHY?

Norton found all because it has Anti-Spyware capibilities. Avira did not because its the free edition.

 

Detection is important, but so is removal. I hear that Kaspersky boasts about their detection all the time, yet they were rated 4/5 by IISCA for removal, while Norton has comparable or better detection with its 2009 line and was rated 5/5 by IISCA.

Re: WHY?

I really hate the versus threads but in this case I thought it was fun.

KIS gets all

ESS gets all
