I liked this bit ...

The ideal product would block all threats and allow all legitimate applications.
A pity to see Avira, Emsisoft and Comodo missing from the tests. But I'm a little skeptical about these kinds of publications too, as for one thing they do vary widely in their conclusions and thus must either be using different criteria for testing, or just be inaccurate...

Someone pointed out on this forum a little while back, MC possibly, that no matter how theoretically efficient your security is, user-friendliness plays a big part in how effective the end result is going to be.

For instance a program that's forever popping up with prompts and warnings that many people don't understand (mentioning no names here ) is in the long run going to be less effective no matter how powerful it is in theory.
