Re: AV free vs not free
"Nonsense." LOL. Who SAYS that these days? Pete, I guess.
If AVG is so great, I'm wondering how you can explain its exceedingly
poor performance on polymorphic viruses in this round up of on-demand
scanning capabilities of various programs, and also achieving the
lowest level of certification among the competition?
And with an overall 7% on new samples it's at the bottom of this
roundup that tested proactive detection capabilities on new virus
So unless the product they're giving away is somehow more effective
than their AVG Professional for $, I'm not sure I'd be so certain that
you're really getting best in class protection.
Don't get me wrong, I have one machine running it and it's kept it
clean. Well, I think it's kept it clean. At least AVG thinks its
clean. Okay, I did verify that recently with multi_av so we can say
it's doing its job over there and the price was right. But if I had
to install something free on a new machine today, it'd be Avast.
