Any inside info hayc59? What are they planning for the new outpost?
The only people it slips away from, are those deluded paranarcotic tree bears that switch antiviruses like their underwear, (unless your a scruffy herbert that is and dont wash )
PMFJI, but I don't see any post in Outpost Forum about 7.5.2, even from their beta testers. Are they just being cautious, or is it coming out soon?
7.5.2 BETA 1, was just released to Tester today

-- I agree also. Staying safe/clean does not only depend on one solitary product (and that's not even mentioning how the user sets up his security application --he sets it wrong then game over). A part of being safe/clean also is the user's behavior, how he uses his system ( --does not use common sense/doesn't want to become inconvenienced or visits plain dangerously vulnerable sites then game over also).
I personally am using Avast and Avira on identical systems and their behavior is a bit different in detection. Avira will stop a download while it's on-going even in .rar/zip form. Avast will stop it when you launch that .rar/zip. Might be different in others but that is what I observed. I also see that Avira will spring into action faster than Avast(tested this on a dual-boot set-up). FP's are a different thing but on me, I don't mind as I check/counter-check every detection I encounter.
-- Ha ha lol! Nice one there Some also switch because of gossip or because they got infected(washed theirhands of the responsibility etc..) and blamed the AV.
-- I was waiting for it to be released last December. Rested OP Pro for a while due to anti-leak issues and used OA Premium. Have been eagerly awaiting the next build since. Saw a thread/announcement in the Outpost forums that "this season will bring....etc..etc..). When will the date be..?
And now avast has failed the latest VB100 test:
Webroot Secure Anywhere, Vipre and Norton. Wow
I'm not sure I can give these any credit, considering some on this list failed over...a single FP? Lmao over Webroot...what the hell? How does nearly 3000 FPs even happen?
2011 was BAD YEAR of Avast! that's why I switched back to NIS in early this year while I still having 6 months subs left.
I think someone yelled "fire" in the theater!
Something is expected for version 7.
The beta of it will be out in few days, in January yet.
Good to hear that
LOL! That made me laugh out loud.
I don't doubt its veracity or reliability. What I meant is that it isn't unknown for tests to vary considerably from company to company & even on a quotidian basis.
Probably. I wouldn't describe myself as particularly 'knowledgable'.
It might be worth looking at other results though. Just in case that particular one was an anomaly.
That makes sense.
I use SUPERAntiSpyware as an on-demand scanner on my notebook, along with SpywareBlaster as a GUID filter. My approach to security is fairly simple: MSE on both computers (Vista notebook/Win 7 64 bit desktop) & (apart from the notebook) everything else is browser-end like WOT, NoScript, RequestPolicy, ABP, FlashBlock & the like.
Yeah, you can't beat Brain.exe.
I remember the same sentence with version 6 I hope the year 2012 will be better for avast ...
And how did NIS do in the latest VB100 test?
Norton also FAILED the latest VB100 test.
I think Rompin Raider knew the answer when he asked the question.
High heuristics have just been upgraded. Expect improved detection.
No. Things changed since then.
Yes...little tongue and cheek. I get a little irritated with the critics based on one or even two different tests. This is almost like politics and religion...we all are a little passionate about our favorites but it doesn't mean the other is bad or inadequate. Most of these AV's are very good and with a good mouse operator, you will be fine! Like most say, find the one that works for you and that you like...and enjoy.
I personally have done tests at random with them against suspicious link and malwares. I prefer do the test by myself in deciding what is best AV both in terms of prevention and cure.
its not based on tests that have been made by AV test org such AV-C,AV-test or VB. Their test results only as complimentary discourse not primary.
I agreed with this
