I decided to took the tests myself since the reviews on..most of the websites like those in Download.com and other "reviews websites" seems ...sugar-coated or "being paid", and it seems the tests conducted by them..kinda...biased as well.
Also, when checking on Avast's website, I stumbled upon this, on their blog.
avast! blog » Can testing paid for by an AV company be trusted?
That means...if you "paid" them for the reviews/tests...you'll get what the results you wanted.
Also, Symantec on "free antivirus"
- Symantec: itâ€™s dangerous to rely on free antivirus - TECH.BLORGE.com
Dangerous? Then how come my personal tests that Avast, which is a FREE ANTIVIRUS
performs better than Norton Antivirus?
There you guys got it.
