Hi sblocker and Welcome to the forums. Avast Home Edition provides basic protection which is ideal for most home users. Avast pro contains certain extra features which makes it more stronger.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Home edition is good enough. Basically you just get 1 extra module (a script blocker) and scheduled scanning with pro.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

I've been using Avast for a while now, and I've always had the update setting to automatic. It's a great free antivirus, I've had a couple of false positives, but better to be safe than sorry.

windows 7 home premium 64, and Windows 10 64 bit

Avast is one of the best FREE programs out there that I have found for my use. It is really up to the user to decide what is best for themselves. No one can decide for you. Just try different programs and decide for yourself. That is the best advice I can give.

Highly recommended.
They have made a lot of changes to the beta version.
The UI is improved and resources usage is very low as compared to a paid AV.
