avast! 4.8

Works perfectly well, scans everything, integrates into e-mail without any changes, uses very few system resources, and stays updated.

I don't like Avast, i always have bad experiences with this particular antivirus, Nod32 is good, but Kaspersky and Norton is better in the suite aspect

First post updated.

FYI I don't think 4.0.424 is the latest version of NOD32. Should be 4.0.437 I think
