if you do not believe in av-comparatives, than you maybe believe in this other independent testing body: AV-Test.org. See how "good" Sophos scored in their tests (http://www.pcwelt.de/news/sicherheit/59058/).
If you still do not believe in independent tests, then you have to stick with what the marketing press releases of the av companies tell you based on their "own" tests.

Maybe you didn't read my previous post right through? I wasn't promoting or rubbishing any particular organisation.
The point I was making (as an aside) is who knows who is behind each "independent lab", how is the testing done and how can the ordinary punter hope to know how unbiased or applicable to the real world the results are.
My local curry house has a large certificate in its window proudly stating that an independent review organisation has awarded it a "highly recommended" status. I looked the organisation up out of curiosity. Turns out if I paid them £85 I too can have a certificate, so can anyone.
In the end it's all about personal bias and experiences. I wouldn't trust any single unknown authority but I might take note of a consensus, particularly if it agreed with my own experiences.
BTW. My local curry house does a pretty good curry

i think as user the best thing is to not look only at one independent test, but to check various legitimate independent tests/reviews and to look if there are some consistencies of the results of a product. Beside that, the user has anyway to try the software himself before taking the final decision about it.
