| |1. Security and Usage SurveysВт., 13 февр.[−]
To improve our service we regularly ask our website visitors on their opinion about various topics related to Anti-Virus Software Testing and Anti-Virus Software in general. The results are very helpful for us and we want thank all who join the surveys and spend their time to complete them.

|↑|3. Summary ReportsСр., 07 февр.[−]
Annually we release a summary report that collates the results of the various tests. We then give awards and comment on product abilities.
The Product of the Year award goes to the vendor whose software performed best overall in the main test series. Finally, a number of products which reached a very high overall standard are given the Top Rated award. The Summary Reports also include individual reviews of each of the programs tested by AV-Comparatives in the main test series. The reviews cover the program’s user interface and everyday tasks such as updating and scanning, to give readers an idea of what the software is like to use in real life, and how well-suited it is to both expert and non-expert users.

This section contains full product long-term dynamic test reports. These tests evaluate the suites “real-world” protection capabilities with default settings (incl. on-execution protection features). It is our aim to do these tests rigorously. Due to that, these tests are time and resource expensive, so only products chosen for the yearly main test-series are included. Results are released monthly, together with two overview reports (July and December).
Our award-winning Real-World Protection Test framework has been recognized by the “Standortagentur Tirol” with the 2012 “Cluster Award for innovation in computer science” and by the “Austrian Government” with the 2013 “Constantinus Award”.
Beside the animated charts we have very extensive reports. Please have a look at them.

Often, anti-virus vendors rely on AV-Comparatives to give them an unbiased and competent feedback regarding their new product features or feature updates.
These tests and reviews of products are often done on behalf of magazines or vendors, to show how the software works and provide valuable data regarding the product’s overall performance, or to help the vendors to improve their software by pointing out weaknesses.

|↑|10. Malware Removal TestsЧт., 02 нояб. 2017[−]
These tests focus only on the malware removal/cleaning capabilities, therefore all used samples are samples that the tested Anti-Virus products are able to detect. It has nothing to do with detection rates or protection capabilities. Of course, if an Anti-Virus is not able to detect the malware, it is also not able to remove it.The main question is if the products are able to successfully remove malware and its leftovers from an already infected/compromised system. The test report is aimed to normal/typical home users and not Administrators or advanced users that may have the knowledge for advanced/manual malware removal/repair procedures.
