Just some antivirus testing by myself, and using some of the malware links that I found in the internet.
Rather than reading those reviews made by some sites...I decided to try the antivirus software myself since...it's hard to believe if you didn't even try it yourself. And probably some of those "review comments" were being "paid" anyway...so, yeah.
Anyhow, the antivirus software I tested are those freeware andtivirus such as AVG, Avira and as well commercial antivirus software such as Kaspersky, Norton Antivirus.
I've tested them using virtualization software, and not on a real machine. And it's not advisable to do the real test on your own actualy machine, unless you've other pc to play on.
This is purely tested on my own, and not some copies from other website. probably there's some other antivirus software I missed out, but you can suggest me to try on it, and I'll try to test them.
This might helps on those members who kinda confused or not sure which antivirus to try/buy.
Well...actually I was..bored, so why don't I just try them up ;x
Virtualization environment setup:

- Web exploits
- Website exploits, spyware/trojan [rootkit]
Please take note, I tested this inside virtualization [VirtualBox], it's like a sandbox where you can just deletes/reverts to original state once you've finishes your work.
Also, the bootup time might be vary to different computers.
