Your post is not clear. It should have stated that no false positives were used in the testing. The list that you posted should be labeled as "List of programs used." It can be misleading and deceiving. On some of the AVs that were used, they did not use the latest version. I.E. Eset, Comodo, Avira, etc. Ok, after scrolling down their page, this test was done on May 23, 2009.

SecureTime,

FWIW, I had no trouble understanding your original post and found nothing "misleading and deceiving" about it.

Thanks for posting.
