    Thanks from me too Brink, I thought that it would auto update the program on its own.

    Avast! is definitely the best antivirus for Windows, after being totally satisfied with the home edition for a couple of years I moved on to pro. But thanks for getting the word out so people with other AVs could get one that actually doesn't bother them. The most useful feature by far is P2P protection which scans Limewire downloads as soon as they're finished.

    Gaving never used Avast before I nearly jumped out of my skin a few minutes ago when Avast announced in loud stentorian tones that it had updated itself. I had no idea it had a verbal updater.
