Avast!5 proactive defense
« on: March 14, 2010, 07:40:31 AM »
I was thinking about how good the new Avast's realtime defense is. Because I can find tests on the web with realtime defense tests including Avast, but only Avast! 4.8, so they are not too accurate. Please reply if you can add something. (And a plus question: What do you think, how good Avast's realtime defense is compared with Nod32's ?)
E6550 2.33GHZ (OC'd to 2.8 stable), 6GB DDRii RAM, 500GB SAMSUNG HDD, Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Avast! FREE ANTIVIRUS, Advanced SystemCare (only run On-demand, weekly)

It will take time before some of the better on-line tests have avast 5.0 since it hasn't been released that long, avast 5.0 should at the very least be as good as 4.8, but with additional functionality and detections, better.

I have never used nod32 so can't compare having only one active system.
