Have seen a lot of problems with just about any AV on the Win8 versions, so have been using Defender for now.
Plan on testing Avast on the RP soon.

Is this a beta version? Looks like it because the Avast! Free installed on my computer doesn't update on pressing on the update Button and continues to display 7.0.1426 as the current version.

I think I might just as well wait for a few more days for a non-beta release.

Message for WIN7 Home premium 64bit/Maybe other WIN versions also:
This AVAST! version has many problems. That Sandbox mode blocks out many game SETUP/EXE files as false positives indcating viruses which they dont have. Only way to allow them is to put them into custom ignore database.
