Avast Free Antivirus remains the best free product... . The results come from the latest anti-malware tests by Dennis Technology Labs, a security testing company affiliated with the publisher of Expert Reviews.

Good to see Avast Free is mentioned, and as a standard KL is among the top. :)

Interesting results since as they said, Bitdefender was always at or near the top before. However, the average user will never encounter more than 1-2% of the malware they use in these tests.

Whatever it is lets hope it is totally isolated from the OS and not integrated with the OS as all previous IE browsers have. And no damn activeX.

Hi DavidR,

Waiting for an OS without browser, that would be the day. ;D
But as explorer equals IE on the OS, how could that be entangled?
This as OS was built upon OS and OS and the code misnomers will stay to haunch us forever.
Just recently some hole from Windows 98 became known to plague all 'Windoze' versions.
Transform Windows through Yosemite 10.10 into system X with Yosemite Transformation Pack 3.0.
