    What a shame they tested the old Norton AntiVirus and not the new Norton Security.

    What a shame that when I read the disclosure in the report

    there is a small search function which becomes visible when you highlight the above text which when clicked sends you to a page telling you your Ask Toolbar is out of date and to click to install the latest one.

    I don't get this when I open the reports in Sumatra. There's no hyperlinks visible for me in that section of text. Ditto for PDFxchange and Firefox portable built-in PDF viewer.

    I don't get using Sumatra either, but I opened this on a machine which uses Foxit :D

    I dont think it makes sense to compare webroot with others. The approach of design of the product is different altogether.

    Its just like to say: turn off the internet and compare detection between webroot and others. Will webroot score better. Of course not. Does it mean it it is inferior. Nope

    PS: Whenever I see AV company sponsoring a report and that AV winning. I just say... meh.

    This is the very first time I hear something called "Windows 8.1 Ultimate Edition".
