Many security products flip through a series of informational slides during installation, extolling the virtues of the product itself or advertising companion products. Each of its informational images both describes a companion product and offers to install that product.

Clicking the Scan System button in the PC Protection panel launches a full system scan.
The scan window itself retains the oddball window caption "Luke Filewalker" that I remarked on in previous editions. A full scan of my standard clean test system took two and a quarter hours, the longest time for any current product, about three times the current average scan time. Some products speed subsequent scans by skipping files that have already been validated.
With hundreds of millions of users worldwide, the free Avira Antivirus is immensely popular.
It gets excellent lab scores, and it brings along a team of related Avira products.
For example, a repeat scan with AVG Anti Virus Free finished in just one minute. Don't be fooled by the progress bar, as it runs to 100 percent multiple times during a scan.
Most antivirus products offer a full system scan and a quick scan that focuses on active malware and commonly infected locations.
And the firewall item just helps you configure Windows firewall.
Note, though, that Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, and Trend Micro Antivirus Security all earned a perfect 18 points in the same test.
Earlier this year I added a pair of tests from London-based MRG-Effitas to the mix.
In most cases, antivirus companies must pay to be included in testing by the independent labs.
A few of the labs actively help them achieve certification—if the product fails, the vendor gets a punch list of things that need fixing.
