    The same logic where more people are likely to post negative reviews than positive ones. You're probably right, to a degree. I think there are also plenty of people who test here on sunny days. If that is true, it's true across the board with all providers. They're all being judged using the same method. In my experience, the better providers always perform better and rank higher here. Is any of this perfect, no. Will it ever be perfect, no. Will I try, definitely. After TMN's recent full switch to https (SSL) settles in with the search engines I have an upgrade to the host stats pages you mention. It aggregates a much broader range and I think it better represents the highlighted ISP, city or country's speed because it won't just be showing you the logs like it does today. It will unlock a huge amount of information that TMN has been calculating and storing in private databases for a very long time now. So look for that tool to become higher resolution in the near future.

    No longer detecting my provider?

    Testmy.net is not detecting IPv6 address correctly. Disabling IPv6 fixes this issue. If your using the MaxMind DB there are different databases for IPv4 and IPv6 depending on how you have them stored on your end.

    Introducing myself

    Hi everyone!! I´m ed_1960 and I´m a newcomer. I wanted to join this community because in the past I´ve had quite a few problems with different ISPs. Many of them claim internet speed connections that are not true. By joining this community I hope to learn how internet connections are measured and how to track them, so I´ll have a tool I can use and trust next time I feel I´m not getting the INTERNET speed I´m paying for. Also, I´d like to get to know some other people who I can share information with in order to enrich my little knowledge of INTERNET connections as a whole.

    Hi swantesty, I'm using the correct conversions, please see https://testmy.net/understand-bandwidth. In your details you can see next to the result in Mbps is also the result in MB/s. You may not be getting the same results as other tests because TestMy.net is not the other speed tests. Other speed tests draw resources in multiple streams. Although TestMy.net can test that way (enable the multithread speed test and test again as you normally do, keep in mind it remembers the setting next time) it does not work this way by default. As a community we found right away that the multithread testing method that everyone uses often masks issues. You can achieve higher results in multithread even if you have an issue affecting your bandwidth. You should instead be tuning single thread performance, if that performs at it's full potential the multithread results will always fall in line. Multithread speed test results favor the ISP. They'd rather you had 10 pipes at 10 Mbps than to draw that all down one pipe. In that example you will appear to have 100 Mbps when you aggregate the result into one but in TMN's eyes... you have 10 Mbps. TMN isn't here to make it easy, it's here to help you improve. It will only call it how it sees it. I've seen it on my own connection and my own mother has seen it on hers. Both times (separate instances) we knew we had an issue at the time so we went out and used a bunch of other speed tests to compare what members had been telling us for years. speedtest.net and others reported 10X higher result when we had modem issues that were physically limiting the single thread performance. If we had only used the other tests we could have thought, "well it must just be the websites I'm visiting." --- The only test that gave indication to the issue was TestMy.net. Modems were swapped and both times and instantly performance returned on TMN results. Re-testing other speed tests had pretty much the same results as before so again, no indication. We had many other factors that were tested outside of speed tests to prove the performance was in line with what TMN was reporting. That was probably over 7 years ago, the same is true now. The methodology here is the same as it has been since TMN's inception in 2001.

    It is ironic that you can only get 1990's era speeds at a luxury $400/night hotel, that is a short days drive from silicon valley. The only place I've had worse internet recently was in Cuba. (The food is just as overpriced and substandard as well BTW)

    If ISPs decide to throttle traffic, they would need to do this all services to be effective, in which case it would probably be easier for them to charge by maximum speed like many ISPs did in the post, e.g. one price for 10Mbps, a higher price for 50Mbps and so on. Otherwise, it would be relatively straight forward to overcome with the use of a VPN. Let's say an ISP prioritises port 8080 to deliver fast speed tests while throttling everything else, just use something like OpenVPN over port 8080 with a VPN privacy service. To the ISP, all your traffic would be seen and treated as speed test traffic. For example, about two years ago the Irish cellular networks Three and Vodafone were doing something similar, i.e. throttling most traffic over the standard web ports (e.g. HTTP port 80), while letting port 8080 run at full speed to deliver fast speed tests, at least with the well-known Ookla Speedtest App. At the time, it meant one could get 4G speed tests over 20Mbps, yet faced slow browsing speeds similar to a 1Mbps connection. All I had to do was make a VPN connection over port 8080 (same port # as Ookla uses for its speed tests) and everything performed a heck of a lot better. A few months later, Three changed their tactic by prioritising certain services such as YouTube when the network is congested. This means YouTube can potentially play 4K fine even when the speed tests (including Ookla) deliver low test result figures.

    Australian Servers?

    @barney79, Welcome to testmy.net forum. If your testing to a specific server such as the testmy.net Australian server, and the test is originated from the same continent, that is where the test is run. Full stop. The reporting server has no bearing on the test results. The test has already been completed before results are sent anywhere, the Australian test server simply reports findings to the main testmy.net server, records them into the database, and reports back to you, after the test has been taken. If you were to run the multi threaded test ( selecting more than one server, then yes there would obviously be more variables involved) but that is not your question or case it seems. Not sure where the provider is getting this information, but generally speaking, that theory would not be viable in any test environment. As you may well already be aware of.

    It would make life easier if the date and time for each test record was separated. That is, when the csv file is loaded into a spreadsheet, the date and time loaded into separate columns. This would allow ready examination of connection performance by time. Otherwise, extremely valuable tool.

    cleaning a pc with air compressor

    As ridiculous as it sounds, most computer components such as the motherboard, PSU and certain expansion cards can survive a full dishwasher cycle. Obviously that's not how I recommend cleaning a PC. The following 8-year old video is an example. The internals were covered in cigarette smoke residue, so he decided to dismantle the components and put them through the dish washer, with the exception of the case, battery and the hard disk. I also enjoy watching videos on old hardware such as restoration videos. I have come ones where such hobbyists put components through a dishwasher cycle to clean extensive debris build-up from being left for 10+ years in storage such as a dusty shed. As long as no moisture remains when the PC is powered up, it should be fine. I generally clean my PC with an air duster, which is basically an aerosol can filled with propellant gas. Here in Ireland, humidity is usually on the high side, e.g. I run a dehumidifier to keep the indoor level below 60%. The only component I may wash is the keyboard. I have a Corsair Cherry Red Mechanical keyboard that I accidentally knocked a glass of cider on. I immediately unplugged it, tried wiping off what I could and let it dry. Once dry, many of the letters were sticking. When I started removing the keys to try cleaning below, I realised the mechanical switches were jamming. With what appeared to be a ruined keyboard that I only purchased a few months before the incident, I figured I'll try giving it a bath as we don't have a dishwasher. I partially filled a wide container with water from our dehumidifier (since it's effectively distilled), soaked the keyboard and pushed each key multiples times to force water through the switches. I left it to dry for about a week. It's fully functional again, all keys work and no sticking or other issue since.

    I am posting this as an example to show how to successfully get a credit for speeds you are not getting. Depending on the ISP, the results could vary, however, the trick is to let them KNOW that you are not stupid, nor will you tolerate their fraudulent practices. Here is a copy of my last chat with Comcast/Xfinity Customer Service. I do apologize for not having the first half of the conversation, as I was disconnected on their end before I could print it. I only ask that you use this as a reference, and not as a script, for they tend to catch on quickly: chat id: b75e3f6a-95a8-4c48-bac7-cfd290d497f6 Problem: I got disconnected. PLease read notes and then apply my credit. Harvey > Hello JOHN_, Thank you for contacting Comcast Live Chat Support. My name is Harvey. Please give me one moment to review your information. JOHN_ > My Issue: I got disconnected. PLease read notes and then apply my credit. Harvey > Hi, John! Harvey > I hope you are having a wonderful evening. Harvey > How much was the credit? JOHN_ > Two weeks at his or less speeds: http://speedtest.xfinity.com/results/J592QAT4WMFBXA3 Harvey > Sorry we are unable to access links that is non-Comcast. JOHN_ > I get 50% or less speeds, I pay only 50% or less for my bill. JOHN_ > That IS Comcast Harvey > Please allow me to look into your account Harvey > For security reasons, may I have your full name? JOHN_ > It is the Xfinity Speed test, only I ddid not log in to take the test to eliminate prioritizing the results. JOHN_ > John ________ Harvey > Thanks, Harvey > Since you are already logged in to your account, we can now skip the verification process. Harvey > Please give me a few minutes to check. JOHN_ > I have already been through the tech departments attempt to fix the issue, as you can see.. they were once again unsuccsessful. I will call the tech myself tomorrow so he can also verify that this issue is not the router/lines, ect. Harvey > So you expect a credit for half of your current package price, correct? JOHN_ > Yes. I do not pay for service I do not recieve, especially when that issue is recurring within 24-48 hours after "repair". Harvey > I'll do my best to be help you out here. Harvey > Kindly give me a couple of minutes. JOHN_ > This continues from m0onth to month, so I will gather the test results accordingly and keep getting discounted for every month Comcast does not live up to their end of our agreement. JOHN_ > Whether you do or not, is going to reflect in the survey. The issue will still be made public as long as it continues. Harvey > That is Comcast. How about me assisting you? Would it also reflect? JOHN_ > Comcast had their chance to do right by me, and they continuously fail. As long as that occurs, I will not pay for service I do not receive, period. JOHN_ > The survey will only reflect your service to me. Harvey > Well, please allow me to give you a positive customer service experience. JOHN_ > I will not take my frustration out on you, however, I do expect the credit. Harvey > I am now doing my best to fulfill you request. Harvey > I am now coordinating with our Support Group. Harvey > I understand, please give me more minutes. JOHN_ > Certainly, just do not disconnect. Harvey > Of course, I won't do that. JOHN_ > And I have made arragements already to have a Comcast Tech supervisor to come out and test the lines/router ect. JOHN_ > So that will not be necessary on your end. JOHN_ > I made that arrangement alst time I had this issue. JOHN_ > last* not aist* , I apologize for my typographical errors. Harvey > Oh, not that's fine. Harvey > *oh, that's fine. Harvey > Sorry my keyboard is acting up. JOHN_ > Mine is just old. I keep it around because I like the clickety sound it makes. Harvey > (smiles) Harvey > Your current monthly rate is $49.99 + $10.00 for modem rent = $59.99. Harvey > I am glad to inform you that I was able to get you the credit for $30.00. Harvey > I already applied it myself and it will reflect on your online account within 24-48 hours. JOHN_ > Thank you very much. I do appreciate you and all your fellow chat reps for trying to fix the issue, it is too bad that I know it isn't actually the equipment doing this. Harvey > You are most welcome. I just did my part John. Harvey > Glad to have you on chat this evening. Harvey > Also, Harvey > I see you have an email address on file of _____________@GMAIL.COM. Is this still a good email to use if we have important messages concerning your Comcast account like appointment confirmation or changes to your account? JOHN_ > And for that, I am grateful. I know you all do not get to hear that enough, so here is me saying it. You are appreciated. Harvey > Thank you for the kind words. JOHN_ > Oh yes. I keep that email address current. I use it for research as well. Harvey > Yeah not everyday that we'd hear appreciation, but I'm glad I was able to this evening. Harvey > Thank you John. Harvey > Was I able to answer your inquiries and met your expectations for today? JOHN_ > Yes, and anytime. Also, let me just say before I go that I know how hard your job is, as my wife did that for years, and she also appreciates you. Harvey > Thank you so much! JOHN_ > Have a wonderful day/night/week. I hope that I am the hardest situation you have to deal with this week. Harvey > Is there anything else that I can help you with? Harvey > You take care my friend. Harvey > Have a safe night. JOHN_ > No, you've been great. Now get me to that survey so I can give you your great review!

    TMN Test Fails To Start

    TMN one-shot, combined test fails to start. Have experienced this today on two computers (Dell Inspiron, i5 CPU, Win 8.1 and Gateway SX2801, 3 GHz Pentium, Win 7). In about 15 minutes, the attached screenshot is all that happened. Is the problem mine or yours? Note the very small, periodic transmissions of ~0.01% network utilization on the Task Manager display. My ISP speedtest says connection is 82 Mbps down and 19 Mbps up and CNET speedtest shows 52 Mbps down so I do have a network connection

    TestMyNet CLI for Linux

    Hello there, Given a recent networking problem on my networking setup, I've decided to write a simple CLI client for testmynet. I know, we can test download speeds using wget, but a proper client good have some nice goodies such as: - Keeping the internal list of servers. - Choosing the closest server by latency. - Choosing a random server. - Being a collectd plugin (my main motivation). Before I embark on this (admittedly short) journey, I have a few basic questions: - Is there anything similar out there? I couldn't find it. - Anyone would be interested in such a tool? I find the collectd integration super useful. - Is there any limit on how many times I can query a server before being blacklisted? I do not want to cause problems for TMN. The idea is to use the /dl-XXXXX URL to download a fixed amount of data. Thanks in advance.

    It would help if when joining members had to enter more postal details on location so that it is possible to search and group on the area where I live. My location on Testmy.net is taken as Andover, Hampshire, GB(UK) but I live a long way off in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. So any grouping of speed tests in my area is impossible as you only appear to group by the ISP. I know that my problems are upload related and probably between the exchange and the ISP so grouping results at the location where the ISP links to the network does not help me with identifying users in my area who I would like to group together. This is because the issue may be telecoms carrier related (British Telecom Openreach) rather than the ISP. I know its not the line as this has been changed all the way to the exchange. If there is a search already that would help me identify members close to me it would be great but I can not see how to do this.

    Result not what expected

    I highly recommend thoroughly testing across the mirrors and multithread for more comprehensive conclusion. Being so heavily invested in only testing to that NY server could give you unrealistic numbers. If they're backed up by more results other servers it's better and even better if that's also backed up by multiple devices/computers on the same network. Despite the lack of additional data I'd like to see, I think you're right. Especially since you've proven over 400-600 Mbps on occasion. Even the best bandwidth is not perfect. No such thing, that's why we test. Don't ever forget, the same is true on my end. I'm picky with my providers and I put them under heavy scrutiny but networks can and do become congested on both ends. On my end, I keep only the best performers. Providers that don't make the grade are dropped before the public even knows I was thinking about looking into the company. Only providers who consistently make the grade across key areas are allowed to maintain here. By the way, for anyone who doesn't know, all of TMN's testing servers are consumer grade, 1000 Mbps. The servers are constantly monitored... if one locale requires more bandwidth, more servers are brought online automatically. All with 1000 Mbps connections. You're always going to have resources here. As soon as 10+ Gbps becomes more of a standard, TMN will have it server-side across the network. Some of my servers are already connected well above 1000 Mbps, I just don't advertise it until it's across the entire network. Funny thing is, the people I buy them from don't advertise them that fast either. Probably for the same reason as TMN. Just because I have mad bandwidth doesn't mean that it can necessarily all be utilized at any time, I probably have a better chance than many average consumers but still, it's not perfect. The day it's prefect is the day I'm out of business. --- and truthfully if it betters our Internet, I'm all for it. If I had your results I'd see the 400-600+ Mbps and wonder if those moments were my true baseline. If that's true, everything else is subpar. If you hadn't seen those speeds then you might be able to say that maybe your computer or network were incapable. Can't really say that after seeing those numbers... and it's was in a large string of tests. You were pretty damn capable when those tests happened. At any rate, in my opinion your speed is pretty awesome. You pay $90 for all 3 services? At those speeds! Dude. Lucky. --- although, that doesn't excuse false advertising. Again, it's best to test across more servers and multithread before drawing a complete conclusion. I'd never blame my ISP until checking those boxes. Keep in mind, TMN is hosted across many networks, it would be extremely odd if they all happened to fail or be degraded simultaneously. If they perform similarly across many servers, it's probably your ISP, network or computer to blame. It's gets even more complicated when you factor in that some routes to some servers can become congested while others to the same server at the same moment, aren't. What most often matters is who your provider is peering with and who my providers are peering with. If those coincide we're going to have a better chance of making that GREAT connection that we wish would always happen. Finally saw the video to this song. What the... lol

    Can you post examples? I looked through your results and didn't find any that looked like that. Maybe you deleted them. You were talking about the TiP result, within the individual test results, correct? Keep in mind that your overall score is calculated completely separate from the TiP result. The TiP minimum, maximum and average are taken from calculations that are separated from the main event. Some of your tests are running more smoothly... http://testmy.net/db/ozEV43YIP ...and some look like a struggle to get to the end. http://testmy.net/db/HvlNtJKXk Obviously, it's best if it runs like the first scenario most of the time. But if you see an extreme spike either way and then it's followed by normal plots, simply disregard it. If you have time, send me a private message with the TID so I can look at it and use the information to improve the algorithm. But keep in mind when that happens, your overall result is not affected. It's not as if the TiP result aggregates into the final result... TiP is a totally separate entity. I may put a 'report inaccurate results' link in an upcoming version to make it easier for users to flag results for a closer look. In this case, I personally never see spikes like you're seeing. It's hard to program a fix for something when you can never see it yourself. But I do learn from your results and apply it. I often spend hours going through live results to look for anomalies. TiP is already much more accurate than the original concept but I know there's always room for improvement. I think the issue on some machines is that something in your software configuration is causing intermittent delays in browser transactions. When these delays happen during the test it causes a misreporting of the TiP numbers. Probably because the times are taken so closely together. Sometimes the fact that a computer is not able to run TMN like the majority of the population is a clue. Example, my friend _____'s laptop can hardly run TMN right now. It used to run it perfectly (another clue that something new is up) and all of the other computers and devices on his network run TMN to the best of the networks ability. The issue is in loading. The test loads and runs but seems to get hung up on the forwarding around that TMN does during the test. Disabled his virus and internet security protection, because sometimes those programs have been known to cause issues... nope. Still does it. Now if this were anyone else I might dig deeper but he admits that he does things online that he probably shouldn't, opens and clicks things that he shouldn't, etc. Per my recommendation he's backing up his files and I'm going to format it and reinstall windows for him. I guarantee, when it boots up... it will no longer have that issue. Sometimes you don't even have to get to the results page to get a result at TMN. Hell, I often start a test and cancel it part way through because I got the point of how it's running just by how it loaded. Please forward me those results in the future so I can make sure it's not something I can improve on.

    various speeds, different browsers

    apparently ive found the issue. since upgrading to windows 10 1607 - anniversary update, speed tests using ie11 and edge are cut in half. transfer rates when downloading large files such as drivers from NVidia are half what they should be when using ie and edge. using firefox all speed tests and download transfer rates are what they should be. that is why while using windows 8.1 all browsers on all speed sites worked fine. ive tried all the anniversary update internet fix suggestions for windows 10 but none of them work. rolling back the update to a previous version fixes the problem in windows 10 and all browsers and download rates are as they should be. MS needs to fix this.

    guide to choosing servers

    Hi @Gio Bacareza, There really in my opinion is not set guideline. The way I use testmy.net is to first test the closest server to my current location. Getting a baseline average of how the local or regional flow reacts. Then I'll branch further outward, testing the ISP peers to verify how well their infrastructure is connected, quality wise. With this, over time I can determine network loads, time of the load if any, and availability. At the same time I'll test the furthest locations of the mirrors, this accomplishes how well the top tier ISP peering is connected (backbones), or main arteries connecting global networks. It takes quite some time to get a rational image (as in records stored in your personal database here at testmy.net) as well as a mental image of network paths, usability as well as an availability baseline compared to others in your area, and worldwide. You can however shortcut to what is already in the public database, [http://testmy.net/country] which is compromised of all tests taken at testmy.net on a granular level of geography, country, ISP (and much more) for informational purposes to use against your test results.

    Going by that Downstream rate, your modem appears to be facing a lot of noise or attenuation on the line. Check the downstream attenuation and noise margin (or S/N) figrues. If the S/N value is higher than 6dB, try rebooting the modem and see if the Downstream figure increases. If the S/N figure remains quite high such as over 12dB, then the Internet service provider is likely restricting your maximum speed. For example, on my DSL line, the maximum I can get is 5120Kbps as that is what the ISP deems is the maximum my line can support. If the downstream attenuation figure is very high such as over 50dB (and you're not 2+ miles from the exchange), try another phone lead between your modem and the socket and check if the figure improves after the DSL syncs again. If the figure does not improve, then there is likely some other fault with the line such as degradation, water ingress, corroded contacts (including at the exchange end), etc. If you have a DSL filter/splitter, try removing it.

    Poor Uploading Speed

    @Avneez , !dea is a large cellular provider in India, over 38 million subscribers. I would check upload speeds at different times of the day, as the network might be very congested when you are trying to upload something. Work to find the best times the content can be transferred.

    Keep in mind the adjustments to the 2010 Open Internet Order now require ISPs to be transparent about any content blocking, throttling or paid prioritization. If you ever feel like that's happening and they aren't being transparent, please post it on the Internet for others to see. I don't expect ISPs to prioritize or de-prioritize TMN traffic any more than they did prior to 2015 when Net Neutrality was enacted. What I do expect to see is premium access to things that we shouldn't have to pay for... and extra billing for bandwidth for those services if you don't pay your ISP for a premium lane to those services. And THAT is BS. --- but I wouldn't expect to see that in 2018, they're just setting up the prerequisites. https://www.fcc.gov/restoring-internet-freedom

    I pay Virgin Media £140 a month for TV VIP , including 2 X V6 boxes; land line and Broadband. My headline download speed is 300Mb but I always get well over that. With Speedtest.net I get 380Mb.

    No .csv Results

    I see now, it was linking to a backup database that isn't updated. Try now, it will work for you. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Very good point. When I was having issues a little while back I had commented out a few lines and never reverted. Can you please confirm that it's working properly for you now? ... that would definitely explain some other emails I've recently received.

    Okay. I followed your link and requested 100 re-tests. I'll be gone for a few hours but will report back here with my results. Thank you.

    Try escalating the problem there. Tell them you want to speak to a supervisor. Stay polite, even though you're not feeling friendly about it. Be persistent.

    Result not what expected

    So after looking around and doing some research Ive figured out my issue on consistency. Well not exactly. But I went ahead and refreshed my windows with a new install. I am now seeing a more steady stream of data input/output. Another issue I was having is my upload would not reach above 500Mpbs using Ookla or Verizons speedtest. This went away with the fresh windows as well. Now as far as the speed results I get here at Testmy.net... I've concluded that I (or anyone for that matter) do not reach my advertised speeds do to internet congestion outside Verizon's network. So my one pc will never get true gigabit connection with another client. But my house as a whole with multiple devices and connections could theoretically come close to the bandwidth I'm paying for. This being because its not retrieving data from one source. But rather multiple sources all over in different locations. Now I know there is much more to this. And a lot more technical. But what are your thoughts? Am I understanding this right?

    Kelvin bits per second?

    You're obviously 100% correct. I took a few minutes to make global corrections to the site. If you see references on the main site (outside of the forums) to Kbps or Mbps please bring it to my attention. I should have caught all the occurrences but I'm human... hence the reason it needs to be corrected in the first place. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and pointing this out. TestMy.net has always been built in your feedback. I'm just the person typing, you're the ones building this with your feedback. Can't tell you how many times my users have corrected me. I'll stand corrected each time and smile because it's made my site better. It's what has made TMN what it is today. I'm often wrong but I try to be quick at making corrections and admitting it. Hundreds of millions of visitors, maybe upwards of 1/2 a billion and nobody has said a word about this detail.

    Hooked up to Belong NBN provider,at rated speed 25Mbps speed Fibre optic to node 100 metre copper to residence router Gateway access, and Wifi to multiple devices. Max download speed about 24Mbps falls off to less than 1Mbps at times. what is going on to cause such a drop in download service.

    There are a variety of things that could be affecting your speed - at your place or externally (local connections, at your ISP, or on other legs of where your traffic is coming and going). Give your ISP a call. Be polite, patient, and persistent. They should be able to help out. It may take more than one call.

    Best Free Anti-Virus

    i would say AVG , i've put AVG on every system build and repair ive done, you have to go through the settings for that deployment, *(scan times, scan whole files, through scanning etc....) but if you set it up to work around you AVG works amazingly, *(and so so if you just run it out the box) avast for me would be a second runner up for me, i would strongly advise against symantec , mcafee, free or other, a good non bias reference for this , or that i use vb100, or the RAP test - reactive and proactive testing https://www.virusbulletin.com/testing/vb100/latest-rap-quadrant/ there's a good handful of specializing AV out there, too for specific scans , and for virus removal after the fact, but i usually leave AVG as my resident protection / av logging, and install and uninstall the others as needed during a removal, ive also sold AVG retail at a previous job, there customer support it pretty straight forward, and they have a lot of back end tools built in that they don't talk about unless needed, lol i hope this helps anyone having issues with AVG lol http://www.avg.com/tools < you can't access that from any link on there site lol i believe the largest misconception with antivirus is that people want to feel protected, they want a easy solution , and to not think about it , and naturally, these people, like things that are flashy and visually assuring, ultimately promoting a false sense of security becasue its something they do not understand, or do not want to deal with or worry about i use them for logging , basically to tell me when there is a prolbem , right away so i can resolve it , and not allowing the bugs to fester and nest, i do not rely on any AV to "fix it for me", sadly people need to realize , that like there car, there's not an app for that, there are tools, for people that know what there doing, take some time and do some research , realistically , the best antivirus is a 3 2 1 back up policy, 3 copies of your data, 2 different devices or media, 1 of witch offsite, and you can always back up to an external, place that in a shielded box, and stick that in a safty deposit box at the bank but aegain your security and peace of mind depend on you and your application i hope this helps some one
