    But also remember that Avira should release a version for Mac OS X as well this year, That's what they told me last year(2010) in January when I asked:D

    My predictions are:

    1) Threats will consistently evolve into scareware and ransomware, old-fashioned viruses and trojans will slowly diminish as new forms of worms and bots will start to work on a world-wide model through social networking.
    2) Cloud-based solutions will continue to grow. However the expense will be a high bandwidth usage, a matter of affordability.
    3) Sandboxing/Virtualization will be added to more and more products as on-demand options for power users but WILL NOT become the norm. Average users are far away from understanding what's that all about.
    4) 3rd-party products will continue to support XP, no matter what.
    5) A few companies will release freebie versions in order to gain marketshare.

    That's it for now.

    Avira should upgrade their update servers - but I guess it won't happen in 2011 :D

    A prediction I'd like to see happening to AVG is for the users to be able to choose which components to install (including the antivirus and antispyware components)... specially not to install the PC Analyzer thing... I hope that's the right name... don't recall. lol

    It has been suggested already... I wonder if they will ever do it, though o_O

    Another one is Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0. It has been in hiatus for quite a long time. It would be great this once magnificent antimalware app to reemerge once more. I feel kind of nostalgic. :D

    NIS will continue to lead (but I stlll can't believe it's a Norton product).

    Avira acquired a Data Center last year, but if they will add that capacity to speed up their update servers, or some kind of cloud service is unknown.

    Was not Comodo Antivirus version one released in 2004 said to be the best AV within one year, CAV 2 released in 2006 soon would change the AV world, CIS (CAV3) was the beginning of the downfall of paid security industry (end of 2007). I kind of missed what the impact of CIS 4 would be on AV industry, but surely 5.3 will make AV industry leaders tremble (again).

    Hey, come on... let's think for a moment, shall we? Melih just made a tiny mistake, but he did predict that AV industry (those who sell their products) would tremble, and it was a great prediction... He just had the vision with a wrong AV... Microsoft Security Essentials would have been the proper name. lol

    I predict the failure of every security tool to keep button clickers safe, no matter what reviews say, no matter what brand new features are built in, and no matter how many layers are built up. Until users invest time to learn what is going on, I will stick with this one prediction, unless the internet is shut off ;)

    Actually, the scan is only needed to scan what you are downloading
    when you are using Sandboxie since Changes to your PC are GONE
    when you delete the contents of the sandbox. If you use something
    like Defense Wall then scans will detect malicious changes that are
    sandboxed but remain on your PC, like you said.
    Hey like you, I also live in Managua.

    All of these predictions of free stuff... who wants for to work for free? I am more than happy to pay a fair price for a good product. I won't use a bad product for any price.
