    Anti-Spy Ware Top10

    Anti-Virus Top10

    Firewall Top10

    great guide to what FW, AV & AS are capable of and what features they have.
    nice comparison table

    altho i never quite understood why SpyBot-SD wasnt in the Anti-Spy top 10
    any way great stuff

    SpySweeper seems to make my Outpost go mad and block all internet
    (because SpySweeper edits memory processes. OP dont like that)

    and SpyEliminator hates non-unique serials

    so fuck the antispy top 10 and stick to basics (hugs adaware)

    Total fucking bullshit.

    Look ar the firewall recommendations; Outpost gets a lower mark on 'Featureset' than ZAP but it actually has more features and bests ZAP in almost every section - it only lags behind on support, for which they both score the same!

    Kaspersky isn't included in the AV section, either.

    Looks to me like it's a top ten of their preferred sellers.

    lol. i'm sticking with nod32. i could try spyware eliminator. mainly cuz adaware isn't that great either. don't need a firewall. already got a router


    i wonder which of those av scanners take up the least resources??

    they are, and i know this first hand, way off on their sygate rating/feature listings
    according to them, sygate has no:
    -password protection *bullshit*
    -personal info protection *bullshit, wtf is a firewall for if not that?*
    -port monitoring *bullshit, how else would it tell you what ports are being scanned?*
    -intruder Id lookup *bullshit, it links to the WHOIS database through a backtrace*
    and probably some others i missed, these were just the obvious
    but it doesnt surprise me, as most of those "reviews" are rarely accurate
    could be that whoever tested the apps didnt know wtf they were doing...
    could be marketing, could be anything, but it is bullshit

    -edit- other review sites i have seen....
    tested sygate FREE edition vs ZA Pro....wtf?
    if that isnt biased......

    and dont get me started on the AV & anti-spyware reviews
