    Hi, like every year, we would like to ask to kindly participate in our survey.
    The results will be published as usual around March 2015 on our website.

    P.S.: If you have a forum and/or would like to get a personalized link (like the one above), send me a PM (i.e. do not post here).

    Thanks in advance for your time (there are around 20 questions, might take you 1-5 minutes to complete the survey).

    I just completed the survey. It was worth it just to give the scam website TopTenReviews a well deserved rating of 1.

    One problem I found with the survey was that reasons for choosing my antivirus did not fit any of the answers to the question "How did you choose your current security solution?"

    Done. I agree with roger_m about question 7. How did you choose your current security solution? e.g. I use KIS 2015 which I get free from by bank, perhaps you should add an "other" option to this question.

    Been there, done that. :cool: Can't the place of origin and age questions be removed, please. It's not important and not relevant for this purpose. Though I won't be surprised if the poll engine creator makes it mandatory, there are quite a few of them indeed.

    Guys, I secretly opted for G Data to be tested again by AV-Comparatives in their future tests. Please don't tell this to anyone, it is a private information. =V

    The vast majority of respondents, over 60 percent, reported that they chose their current security solution based on good scores in independent tests. I'm sure that pleased the testers at AV-Comparatives! Three quarters reported no recent (newer than six months) problems with antivirus protection, but 4.4 percent reported a protection failure within the last week.
