Yes, the title of this post resumes the situation quite well. An Austrian Company named AV Comparatives has recently tested 17 of the most popular Anti-Virus products that are currently available out there, and in that bunch, only one failed the test: Windows OneCare. Surprised? I know I’m not. This is the second test in less then a month that Microsoft’s AV software has failed. When seeing results like this, all I can do is wonder why MS’s AV ranked at the bottom of the list, especially when I know that their employees probably have access to the Windows source code.
Microsoft OneCare performed very low in the test, and did not reach the minimum requirements for participation,” wrote Andreas Clementi, senior tester at AV Comparatives, in the report about the tests.
