Hello vienna75,

as you ask about comments about a website and nothing specific for avast! 4 Home/Pro, I think it would be better if you wrote it into the General topics.
I personally like that website, but as I am the owner of it.... ;) :P
BTW, vienna75, what is your opinion?

Regards,
Andreas

I think its a nice site and the tests are fair, do you send the virus to the anti-virus company so they can add it to there virus database?

AVG will be included in the next test series (of the year 2005).
I test only some selected scan engines; in order to get tested some conditions have to be filled and I also want the permission from the company etc. before I include their product. Some weeks ago I finally got the permission and the conditions seems to be fulfilled now, so, I plan to include it next year.

The online comparisons look iffy in Firefox.

some few Firefox-Users have to do the following in that case:
e.g.: VIEW -> CHARACTER ENCODING -> WESTERN (ISO-8859-1)
also some other settings would work, but this is the easiest way.



hope this helps ;)

Yes that did help, never knew I could do anything like that.
Maybe it will work for other pages that look wonky in Firefox.
