If you want the paid version of Avast.
« on: May 26, 2010, 05:56:49 PM »
    If you are thinking of purchasing a paid version of Avant; and would like to know what the paid version is able to protect you from, then go to the link below.  you will see the Avast program there.  It will give a long list of what the paid version has to offer.  I have the Avast Internet security.  This is the one that I would recommend.  Use this link to only show what Avast Internet Security  can protect you from not for comparing with other Programs.

Well.....WOT users don't think very highly of this site.   WOT is hardly "the final word" on everything, but still...be careful of the sites you "endorse" ;)

and yeah, I didn't find any other place than WOT where the site is listed as suspicious, but that's not good...

enough to stay away from it...unless someone gives me a good reason to follow a web site listing outdated software, and linking to tests without really testing anything...

That website promotes bad products and has bad reviews. It has also advertised rogues or former rogues. Look: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com

I agree that AV Comparatives is much more reliable as to ability to detect malware. the test results of the Top Ten vary a lot from AVC. Compare the two test results.
