  1. Microsoft's OneCare takes last place in anti-virus evaluation!

    March 01, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Microsoft's Windows Live OneCare came
    in dead last out of a group of 17 anti-virus programs tested against hundreds
    of thousands of worms, viruses, Trojan horses and other malware, an Austrian
    anti-virus researcher reported yesterday.

    The AV Comparatives Web site, which is maintained by Andreas Cleminti from
    Innsbruck, Austria, posts quarterly results of tests that pit the top anti-virus
    products against a dynamic list of nearly half a million individual pieces of
    malware.

    Cleminti's report is available online (download PDF).

    I had never heard of AVK, but that looks like an awesome program. How come Norton kept scoring so high??
