Here's where the rubber meets the raod for a lot of our readers...

"AV Comparatives independent tests come weeks after a certification body declined to grant Microsoft's anti-virus product a seal of approval. Virus Bulletin, the independent security certification body, said that OneCare was among four anti-virus testing products that failed to reach the standard required for approval. McAfee's VirusScan anti-virus software also failed the tough VB100 certification process. ®
