AV Test Home User June 2019 Report
« on: July 30, 2019, 01:56:16 PM »
Hi,

The new report for June was release today and what i would to ask is how is possible Avast has such poor results against 0 day threats, only 97% below industry average as well, what is going on protection, Avast? i have been using Avast for a while now and this is, i think the worst result i ever saw. I used love Avast protection indeed but every last results from Av- Comparatives; AV-Test and from SE Labs the results are not close to the top in terms of protection.  :(

Kind Regards,

Which is not unusual. There will always be some fluctuations.

Yes, and as we all know, No Anti-virus is 100% all of the time. ;)

Personally I'm always ware of such tests. 

Whilst AV-Comparatives is one of the better ones, I use my own personal experience as my guide and so far in over 15 years use of Avast Free I'm on 100% protection.

Part of that can also be down to my practice of safe hex, plus additional measures and if all else fails a robust backup and recovery strategy.

I've been believing some other forums that 3rd party antivirus not really needed, unsure how true that is,   but since my last Desktop clean install to fix the issue with Missing Internet Temporary file location missing,  so far stuck to using Defender--watch me be making a big mistake.       Laptop and 3rd Desktop still running Avast Free though--might put this gaming Desktop back on Avast when 19.7 releases to public.   

Each Av is never 100 percent protection I do know,  try to be as safe surfing as I possibly can be.    Has Avast Free been fixed with Windows 10 Pro Sandbox feature if I wanted to use that sometime, or is it best sticking with Defender to avoid that type of conflict.      So far only used it to check out a flash drive from a friend that I wasn't sure was infected or not, supposedly Windows 10 Sandbox cannot infect the host machine from what I read so far

My experience has been similar. I've not had a virus on any OS I've had Avast installed on from Windows 2000 and up. I've achieved that by keeping the OS and all software updated with the latest versions and security updates, not being "click-happy" (not clicking on links, etc. without fully knowing what it is I'm clicking on) and having a "Layered Security Profile" that covers all "Attack vectors".
Smart computing, latest updates/security patches, layered security profile, Recovery strategy (if needed) and Avast have kept me ''virus free" :)
I've managed all OS's and 3rd party software starting with my Brain.

Yes, it is all about not putting all of your eggs in one basket or just having a single security product or policy.
