Well I don't care whether PCWorld recommends paid AVs or not, as avast won "Free Antivirus" comparative. ;)
As you know even AV-comparative awarded Symantec as GOLD prize...

It at least give them credit for saying you can have as good a protection as a paid suite by using things like Threatfire and a third-party firewall in addition to a free antivirus.

I wonder if their use of the term Malware included Trojans, Rootkits and other so called "Viruses" or if they were just testing so called "Malware"

If they were just testing so called "Malware" then their published test results may be a bit misleading because a number of so called "Anti-Malware" free programs are compatible with Avast AV Free.  So a combination may have a very high blocking rate and still at no cost.

Does anyone know the answer to this questionz?

Yeah... I've like to see... but, yes... and i think some of you will agree with me.
Avast needs to start the improve seriously with the 0-day malware cause the only Con i actually find, it's just that... the rest, Avast beats them all (free anti-virus competitors) easily.
