    AVAST! is great, but do I need a firewall as well? or is Windows 7 firewall good enough? My previous experience with Firewalls is that they slow things down a bit.
    Avast Internet Security has its own firewall. But if you are using the free version of Avast, the windows firewall is enough.

    Avast Internet Security 5 - installation issue (fix)


    If you have a biometric software installed on your computer, you need to uninstall it in order to install Avast Internet Security 5 to work properly. The issue is that the biometric software interfers with the proper installation of Avast and on reboot, you will get "failure to logon" on windows 7 startup.
