    I moved to use sophos and that's one solid and great free AV. I wished I used it before. I tested it and it blocked all malwares even a few minute old ones (just came out zero-days). The only tweaking allowed is for the website filtering and thats it. So i blocked check added gambling, violent and adult sites to the filter and thats it.

    Its one of the few security systems that detects any format that windows use. even locked files(like .zip) before even opening them. From what I understand is that you can used it on upto 10 client pc with one free account.

    I tested it on windows 10.

    here is matt's sopho test:

    To start, you need to correct spelling in title.

    Sophos Free Av is indeed one of the few good AV out there. There are still some imp features missing.

    As for the test, I would still stick to professional testing results.
