qihoo.com is I believe in Chinese. This probably explains WOT reports about the page from English speaking visitors of the site. There are only 5 votes there.
I am using 360 Total Security on 2 PCs here at home after using strictly avast for 8 years. I rate 360 TS slightly ahead of avast, mainly because of the built in features for online buying and for anti-keylogging (in the free edition). Also, 360 TS uses 4 sets of definitions, including the BitDefender and Avira definitions, the BitDefender defs being well known as outstanding.
Before making the change, I wanted to be sure that Qihoo was serious about reaching western/english speaking PC users with 360 TS. I began to research, and I became interested in the connection between Qihoo and Amazon, and that's when I ran into this page at Amazon:
Apparently, Qihoo is using Amazon's servers to handle updates to the definitions and to the program. After watching the video, it seemed to me that Qihoo is serious about reaching westerners with 360 TS. Honestly, I feel more confident with the relationship between Qihoo and Amazon than I do with some of Microsoft's relationships with such as Akamai Technologies and Mark Monitor.
Overall, using 360 TS for me was an issue of being confident that Qihoo could be trusted. It's a good program, and it's going to get even better, so that is a positive long term. It's light on resources, which is a big plus, too.
One thing. For anyone thinking of switching to 360 TS, the Avira and BitDefender definition engines must be enabled in the program's Virus Scan tab. Near the bottom, there are small icons, and two of them are almost invisible. These represent the Avira and BitDefender engines. To start them, hover over each blank icon and then click to flip the switch that pops up for each. The definitions will immediately begin to download.
