As we can see that Emsisoft top in every category, we shouldn’t take this test conducted by MRG as a “fair” test as it did not test for system performance and check for false positive (as this is very important in Anti-Malware test) since high detection Anti-Malware suffered from this. This test should be use as a reference and not a guide.
