    "Only 4 Stars cnet?"

    December 23, 2010  |   By Jack_Smith56

    Pros

    Lightweight
    One of the highest detection rates available
    Simple to use, and effective
    Great Security, without risking efficiency

    Cons

    Noneeeeeee

    Summary

    I'm surprised cnet only gave this 4 stars, I mean it really is the best Anti-Virus for performance and security. Its simple to use and Its never caused any problems with any other software. I'd recommend it to anyone.
