Based from those tests, most of the attacks were not blocked by Iobit's resident protection^^

So, Im sticking with avast, MSE, MBAM combo^^

It seems that they are underestimating high-end anti-malware products because they only used the free version of them.
DESKTOP: Win 8.1 Pro, Avast 20 Free, Windows firewall, Malwarebytes free, Mcshield

LAPTOP: Win 10, Windows Defender, Malwarebytes free, Windows Firewall, Mcshield

Problem with free version is that scan engine lacks half of the better features. So bottom line, it's heavily crippled and useless.

lord oh lord...you guys, whoever you are are looking for troubles by:

1 calling your tool a "Microsoft Registry Cleaner"  ;D
2 saying that MS certified it  ::)

you should redesign the whole page and call the tool something else before you get a call from an MS lawyer  ;)

edit: where's the link to the PC world review ?

edit: friends or colleagues ? http://www.microsoftregistrycleaner.net/

@drhayden1
This has been discussed many times.

No one anti virus application is 100% effective.

MSE is part of Layered Protection for your system.

MSE will be included in Windows 7 and fully co-exists with avast!
