Hi bob3160,

I won't repeat his words, but avast! tean member, Milos, would say "we are the best";
and to my knowing we are not far from that.
Somewhere in the "reliable" top regions.

I know that MS means good and also wants to make an effort in this field,
but I hope Corinne will agree with me.
when I say that av-security isn't excactly "their cup of tea".

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

To me, Microsoft's anti-malware offerings are pretty much on a par with their firewall. Good basic protection but other products do it better.
