Which Antivirus Products Are Best, Worst at Detecting Malware?

Twice a year, independent antivirus testing lab AV-Comparatives.org releases a report comparing how well 15 to 20 antivirus products can detect malware in an on-demand scan. In the latest report, quite a few products improved their ratings, though a couple cloud-based tools failed to complete the test. AV-Comparatives also offers new insight into the problem of false positives.

Many Improved Ratings
Every product that passes the on-demand scan test rates at least STANDARD. Those that do a bit better than the rest rate ADVANCED, and the very best products rate ADVANCED+. If a product doesn't pass, it receives the rating TESTED.

Four products that rated ADVANCED in February's test moved up to ADVANCED+. They are: avast! Free version 6.0, ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5, G Data AntiVirus 2012, and Panda Cloud Anti-Virus 1.5.
