Last week, Microsoft Security Essentials received VB-100 certification, and now a AV-Test certificate. "AV-Test recently spent three months testing 19 security products in the areas of protection, repair and usability. On Aug 16th they released the test results, and MSE has received another certification. According to AV-Test Product Review and Certification Report, the "Protection" category covers static and dynamic malware detection, including testing for real-world 0-Day attacks. "Repair" evaluates the system disinfection and rootkit removal in detail, which's critical for ensuring AV solutions effectively clean malware off of consumers' computers. The "Usability" testing criteria includes the amount of system slow-down caused by the tools and the number of false positives."
