QUOTE: German antivirus testing lab AV-Test.org performs regular antivirus certification testing under Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. In the past the lab has released new results once per quarter. The release of current results from August, 2011 reflects a switch to a bimonthly schedule.  The tops score of 16.5 points went to Bitdefender, which routinely rates near the top in these tests. Kaspersky and F-Secure tied for second with 15.5 points.
