Antivirus Cure Worse Than Disease?

    John Hawes, anti-malware test director at Virus Bulletin, said its
    biggest problem in running its most recent tests were crashes and system
    slowdowns.

    "Many of the products in this test did prove stable, speedy and well
    behaved, but many others had issues far too serious to be classed as
    mere quirks and oddities," he said. "We experienced a large number of
    freezes, crashes and hangs, not just of the product interfaces or of
    specific scans but in many cases seeing the whole machine shutting
    down."
