Not yet. I decided to try MSE, Microsoft Security Essentials mainly because I´ve lately changed my mind about Microsoft. I am one of those users been years hovering between Windows and Linux and very sceptical towards all MS-products. I´m a bit ashamed to admit late 90´s I contributed some opinions to legendary website f**, later known as

With Vista Ultimate and now this fine peace of UI they call Windows 7, my trust and liking are growing. I am not a rocket scientist so in my (small) brain I figured out Microsoft knows Windows and threats against it better than the others, so why not give them a try.

A bit funny, really, how my opinion has ghanged since early 2007 and Vista: I´m now more accustomed to use Windows than my "early love" Linux or VAX/VMS which we still used when I studied. I gave OpenOffice away and first time installed MS Office Pro about half a year ago, and today I ended a more than a decade old relationship with Norton.

Windows® 8 Pro (64-bit)

I still hate the fact that they don't have a complete 64bit package. Although, Avast 5 works great on 64bit Windows 7, but in taskmgr, it still shows AvastSvc.exe *32.
BTW, avast 5 looks great so far.

Edit: Action Center is unable to identify avast. LOL.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Beta [5.0.89] New beta is out... just update.

I think if you have the Beta 5.0.70, you can update it to .89 from that. Otherwise, you could get 5.0.89 from here - avast! Home Free Download and Reviews - Fileforum
