    Sponsored?
    Anyways i gotta give Norton credit, maybe they're not performing well on other tests since this one allows the full potential of their cloud techies :D

    They still have Avast! as by Alwil?

    But anyway I don't trust it as much since it's sponsored by Symantec. What tests aren't? I also noticed no F-Secure, which is usually as good as or performing better in this year's AV-Comparatives. Hmm..

    They also only tested the free version of Avast!, AVG, and Avira, against paid products, so that affects the results as well.

    If they had used the paid versions of avast! and AVG products, the results should be no different.
