That's impressive but still irrelevant compared to 11.000 cases in their test.

Well... anything will look good compared to AVG. Except Kingsoft.

Where does it say that in the OP?

You obviously have no experience working with business machines.

Many businesses I manage networks for use gateway whitelists therefore you're porn example is moot.

This may come as a surprise to the OP and yourself but many security experts don't even use anti-virus, actually Wired has a article explaining why a while back, Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money?.

Funny thing is, consumers spend more on anti-virus than corporations do because they're still being sold on a decade old idea, just like 24k gold plated isn't need for HDMI cables, people are still being sold on the analog age idea that anything 24k plated is better and will improve quality and fidelity.

I'm not downplaying the need for anti-virus but in today's digital world it's real-world effectiveness is questionable since every virus writer tests his/her creation to make sure it avoids detection (what's the point of releasing a detectable virus?). Far too many times in the past year machines I worked on that have updated virus definitions got whacked with the FBI virus and it's variants on machines that had the top 5 anti-viruses installed. Bottom line is, do whatever makes you "feel" safe and gives you a peace of mind.

You're right. I don't have any experience with business machines.

Those businesses and their whitelists don't seem to do their jobs very well then, if 70% still manages to surf porn during workhours, or many businesses don't spend much time taking care of security. So, no, it is not a moot point. I'm using statistics here, which serves as an average for the entire population. You on the other hand will only get to see the business that have a white-list system because you get hired by those who need or have one. You (generally speaking) don't see the ones that don't care or didn't have this kind of security or didn't hire someone like you to take care of security. And that's what those statistics prove.

I do know that yes.

Decided to move away from Defender for once, and chose Panda Cloud solely on the fact that the "cloud to butt" extension makes it Panda Butt. I am now a proud Panda Butt customer.

On a serious note, what ads do they talk about in the free version? I used Avira a long time ago when Vista launched and hated the giant ads it threw up. Does Panda Butt Cloud do the same thing?

Not that I know off. Avira has stopped doing that for a while now, its removal was the reason I finally went for Avira.

The only 'in your face ads' AV that I know is AVG. I tried it on several occasions but I simply don't feel safe in large part due to the ad-infested nature of the program. It's a feeling I can't base on facts, since AVG tends to be a pretty good AV but to me it looks and feels more like a 2004 registry-cleaner adware scam tool than a half decent AV.
