You might not realize this, but in most cases antivirus companies pay for the privilege of having products tested by the independent labs. The company does benefit; a high score gives it bragging rights, while if the score is poor, the lab helps the company work through what went wrong. With a free antivirus that doesn't bring in any income, a company might be tempted to avoid the expense of testing. Not Avast. We follow four independent testing labs that regularly release reports on their results, and all four routinely include Avast. Three of them include AVG in their latest reports as well.


MRG-Effitas(Opens in a new window) reports its test results a bit differently from the other labs. Products that don't manage perfect or near-perfect protection simply fail. We follow two tests from this lab. Avast appears in the latest report for one, while the other includes neither Avast nor AVG. Alas, despite past successes Avast failed this latest test.

Right now it is FedEx that comes to mind again as I kept checking for tracking of packages shipped to me since receiving the tracking info. I queries consistently returned the error message "Unfortunately we are unable to retrieve your tracking results at this time. Please try again later."


There are other issues with Firefox now that I wasn't having before the last 2 or 3 updates ago. I didn't even bother posting a question for help about it because it appeared I couldn't even find anything while searching for the problem. That new problem is that ONLY in Yahoo! email tab if I click a link to watch a movie OR play audio clip OR try to save a .jpg or other image file, the tab automatically closes. I gave up and just started using other browsers, one of which is Waterfox, based on open source Firefox, seems to work just fine and doesn't close that Yahoo! tab.


Even when a normal google search takes place, the results are being modified. Some fake unrelated results are being added as the first few results.And again, I see regular true releveant results appear, and then before my eyes, few fake ones are being added to the page. This happens on an actual google search.


After experiencing the same problem and going through a process of disabling chrome extensions, I found it to be the Chrome Apps Launcher extension to be the culprit. This also made a load of ads appear at the top of the google images search page, with the image thumbnails only appearing a full page scroll down the results. Disabled Apps Launcher extension and all is back to normal. This problem started on a brand new laptop so a little surprised to be getting these problems. Malwarebytes and Chrome Clean-up Computer functions found nothing 041b061a72
