OK, leaving aside whether we like/dislike pcmag website, it has developed an annoying habit to those of us downunder.

You used to be able to view either the Us or the Oz version, but now all links to the US site are automatically redirected to the Oz site. An example. For some reason I can view this US link "www. pcmag.com/ reviews/ antivirus"  (as a newbie I can't post links, but you should be able to figure it out), but when on that page if I hit the link for say the top antivirus 2015 review I end up in the 2014 reviews in the au site. (When that 2015 review first came out I could view it by say a direct link from a google search result "antivirus review 2015 pcmag", but even that no longer seems to work.)

Does anyone have an idea of how we can get around this without going to extreme measures?

Pfffft. Amateurs.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the PCMAG US link and from them on you will always see the US version.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (from the US site using the freitasm method)

"The Best Antivirus for 2015

Three products share the Editors' Choice honor for best overall antivirus: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 [USD] $39.95 at BitDefender, Kaspersky Anti-Virus (2015) [USD] $31.10 at Amazon, and Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2015) [USD] $19.99 at Webroot."

"The Best Free Antivirus for 2015

The real standout is Panda Free Antivirus 2015 - it rated up with the best commercial products."

OK & thanks. I've spent the last 30 minutes standing in the corner wearing the dunces hat. I trust that is long enough!

ROFL. Just remember in the future MOST (not all) sites will have an option to swtich.

I actually like going over menus in websites to make sure I haven't missed something interesting or important.
