I would just suggest to you not to trust to this site http://personal-fire...tenreviews.com/
I have a reason to believe that the reviews are false at this site, or they are not capable for doing an good review. I have seen complaints at forums about this site and here is one of the reports from McAfee Adviserhttp://www.siteadvis...et.com/summary/
Merchant issues. [Reported]
Feedback from credible users indicates an overall concern with shopping at this site.
It is connected to this site hermanstreet.com and the report from McAfee is this
When we tested this site we found links to toptenreviews.com, which our analysis found to be deceptive or fraudulent.
Here is a link from a forum where you can see complainants of the users considering toptenreviews.com sitehttp://forum.avast.c...151967#msg15196
This is a quote taken from the same forum
...this is the way some people earn money. If you carefully scrutinize the "Buy Now" links for the top 5 rated products, you'll see that they all have an Affiliate ID. Which means that the author is getting like 20% commision for each transaction realized via this link.
This is how it works in detail. The author sends an email to 15 AV companies, asking them to become an affiliate partner. Some of them respond, some don't. Then he stitches up a web site with more or less junk info (but "easy to read"! Smiley), comparing the various products on the market, but paying special attention to placing those that he has affiliation for on top places. Last, he starts a modest campaign (typically on Google) to get as much visitors on his site as possible.
Lovely isn't it?
BTW this guy is not confined to AV's - see the main page http://www.toptenreviews.com
This seems like a rehash of their flawed 2004 reviews, whilst it mentioned the Virus Bulletin 100% awards for some other AVs no mention was made about avast's VB100 awards.
There is no date as to when the review took place, other than we see that used an old version of avast (so it is not recent) and there is nothing about how the tests were conducted.

In future be more careful when picking up an site for reviews and shoping
