This test shows how an antivirus behaves with certain threats, in a specific environment and under certain conditions.
We encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.
Before buying an antivirus you should consider factors such as price, ease of use, compatibility, and support. Installing a free trial version allows an antivirus to be tested in everyday use before purchase.
If you check the detailed report you'll see it's basically the same. Slight difference in numbers made difference in overall score.Avast performance 5.5....and AVG with 5?
can this be true? i thought it's the same product, the same signatures and blocker, just another GUI.
When I use AppTimer to see how fast for instance Chrome launches and check WD versus Avast, Windows Defender slows down programs starts 25% less. Windows Defender set on MAX with ConfigureDefender COLD (first startup) launches half a second faster than Avast with FileShield installed. Consequetive startups of Chrome with WD are just below .2 seconds faster than Avast (again with Fileshield only, when I install more Avast free modules, the lag gets worse). Could you post your AppTimer recordings (since you mentioned that you knew for a fact)?Windows Defender with performance of 6 makes absolutely no sense when I know for a fact that avast! is objectively faster and got only 5.5...
Yeah, this is very unfortunate.
