Mystery solved. I apparently wasn't signed into the forum while using Edge.
Sorry about that. Once signed into the forum the attachment was there.

Better than nothing for sure. I'm happy with Avast. :)

One thing I don't get is that why MSE has better legitimate accuracy (100%) and better total accuracy (95%), and Protected (94) while Avast Free Antivirus 2015 has legitimate accuracy of 98% and total accuracy 92%, and Protected 94? I have been using Avast since the very 1st release of version 7 since then till now I haven't looked back or don't have any regrets. I am 100% happy with Avast.

I sticked to Avast from other free/paid antivirus such as MSE, Panda Cloud Antivirus, McAfee, and Trend Micro.

I disagree with the 1st bullet point on page 2 of that document and the other 3 bullet points didn't mention anything about Avast? Also other pages of that document I have to disagree. Reason behind this is because I don't really trust this source (Dennis Technology Labs), because I haven't really know them well and not familiar with them. Only source I can trust/read is other virus testing labs such as ICSA Labs, Westcoast labs, AV-Comparatives, and AV-Test.

This is my personal view and etc of you guys may have other views.
