Free AV Products Competition - Avast Does Well
« on: January 31, 2010, 02:19:41 AM »
I have no idea who this guy is and quite frankly he doesn't seem all that bright, but he did throw a bunch of malicious links at 3 top free AV products and the results were very interesting.

Avast the clear winner in these tests.  One issue to begin with but stopped everything else in it's tracks.  Avira was plain awful, while MSE didn't fair very well either:

oh wow, this is an impressive test ::)
Great job! Glad to see Avast in action and I am happy that it is not on my computer *huh*
As I saw Avast also let some "beasts" through, right?
