The AV-Test protection tests covered static and dynamic malware detection, including real-world zero-day attacks. For the repair tests, they checked system disinfection and rootkit removal in detail. Finally, in the usability category, testing evaluated system slow-down caused by the tools. Panda Internet Security 2011 scored a five out of six in ‘Protection,’ and 4.5 out of six in ‘Repair’ and ‘Usability.’ Only 17 of the 22 products passed all the tests and were judged worthy of AV-Test’s ‘Certified’ badge.
