No, Q360 TS own database is updated very often and does not lag behind. Avira usually does update timely, too. BD is kinda problem. Sometimes, it lags behind for one day. In most cases, I need to manually update 3-4 times to get the new signatures (sure they might come by auto-update too). I manually update as soon as I start the PC, it's kinda habit I had with every AV I had.
According to VT + this forum, I noticed that Qihoo's Signatures a pretty strong, and they're cloud based.
As well as i noticed that Qihoo heuristic catches more than signature. I had been seen a lot of MT malware samples been detected by Qihoo as QVM something something than numbers at the end of it.

I want them to fix their privacy policy.
I hope you have checked the privacy policy of other Free Antiviruses mentioned also ;) Just because it's a China based company don't be like only they are stealing your privacy.

They are providing third party Signature and that must be costing them too. They don't even have paid Anti Virus. So I don't see any harm in get ting a good protection with the cost of my privacy ;) ( Anyway there are plenty other softwares does the same so why only blame 360 ;) )

Well, i'm kinda okay with Qihoo privacy policy since i have nothing against their company and business, but my friends and my family don't like Qihoo privacy at all.

I agree with you but not fully.

Novice/ Intermediate/ Advanced User terms are not properly used. It's sounding like whoever uses 360 is a novice users :p ( hurts my ego :D:D:D since I am using 360 now :p:p:p)
My bad.. I am just saying Qihoo is easiest to operate amongst the options given hence it can cover users from novice to advanced. That goes the same for others too, we all started as novice, but yeah as we gain experience we can use all of these optimally and safely.(or use MT guides)
