This month's VB100 comparative on Windows XP brought something of a mixed bag, as several vendors appear to have decreased support for the platform in favour of the newer Windows 8. John Hawes has the full set of results.

The following chart shows the RAP results obtained over the last four tests, with average reactive scores plotted against average proactive scores for each product. (The detection figures from any test during which a product generated false positives are omitted (for that product) from the average calculations.) This chart is updated on a bimonthly basis. Virus Bulletin subscribers have access to the detailed results of the RAP tests, including a per-test RAP quadrant.
The full Windows XP report can be read in the April 2013 edition of Virus Bulletin (VB subscribers only - click here for subscription information) or can be purchased as a standalone article ($19.95) .
