You're missing the major point, and want to say everyone is wrong but you and the AV you happen to like. So if you were to review it, it'd be a kickass 10...when others view it, it's a 4.
So let's give it an 8 based on the Chaosdsm scale and still state "it's not the best". I think it sucks, you think it rocks...that's a 5 at best. I'd hate to think a single person reviews something and dictates that everyone will feel the same way. You're forcing that everyone acts just like you...pretty liberal of ya.
The major point (70-80%) of an A/V review should be "how well does it work on preventing / finding / removing virus' " the MPC A/V review is kind of like rating a Ferrari a 9 & rating a Porche a 5 because it isn't a Ferrari... & since there's no effectiveness data listed...
I don't think
Avast! rocks, but it does seem to get the job done. Personally, I would give Avast a 7.5, since for me, it's faster (as far as actual scanning goes) than AVG pro, & seems to be the best U3 USB thumb-drive compatable A/V, not that there are a lot of options to choose from... Avast, McAfee, & TrustPort A/V are the only options I know of for U3 enabled thumb drives. Of course, being a U3 edition, it may be stripped down to basics which may be why it runs fast for me...
One other reason Avast! is of interest to me, a 3 year BART (Bootable Anti-Virus & Recovery Tools) CD subscription for repair techs if available. Unlimited usage on any PC, but it isn't cheap. http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_bart_cd.html
Don't DL porn, use torrents, open email from people you don't know or surf warez sites, and you'll never need it anyway.
If only that were true... Those are just the easiest ways to get infected. You can still get email from people you know... who are infected. Sites that you think are safe might not be... etc...
