One thing i always wonder is why tests labs doesn't share their samples to the public (could ask for a small paid subscription in exchange) so they (and the vendors) would be transparent and trustful...but they don't...:sneaky:

Regarding K7- I did a quickie with K7 this morning with the System Monitor set at High. It was run against a testbed of diverse malware, none zero-day (a week or so at the newest, a year or so at the oldest- I like to see if a security producat can walk before testing if it can run, if you catch my meaning).

1). I set up my VM to simulate a POS computer and there were no noticeable slowdowns.
2). The raw on demand scan of the test set was nothing special as I still had about 25% of the test set to run.
3). The Proactive module did fine against typical riff-raff like ransomware and trojans.
4). It did extremely poorly against scriptors like diverse worms and WMI malware.
5), Upon reboot and rescan I had oodles and oodles of nasty things that restarted with Windows and remained extent on the system after a full scan by K7.

As I said before no av is free from sniffing..That s the truth.
For free av go with Avira / Bit defender free. Try Kaspersky free if you are OK with it
For paid there are many options.
Norton G data KIS Dr web Bit defender..
Try each before purchase

Good luck with the Chinese who do not respect any human right and treat their citizens as sheep.

You're very dislocated.

K7, that is the major Indian security company. I have to try them out. Indian IT sector is excellent.

As for Chinese AV's, I would not use one for numerous reasons.

Amazingly, the US or the other 4 countries in the "5 eyes" (who illegally spy on their populations), did not come out against any Chinese AV. Strange eh? US agenda? I think so.

The US goverment (like any other government) lies a lot to its populace.

I was just joking.
Djim commented that he trusted more in the Chinese government than in a western one.
That's where the recommendation comes from.
