Despite some negativity from AV-Comparatives (and elsewhere), I'm starting to think that Avast really is hard to beat - not only coz it works so well in 7 (as does Eset btw), but because it is really excellent in finding nasties.

Ah right, thanks for clearing that up.
Although ive been using Avast ive not really looked in to it. It just seems to work.
Im having no luck with Eset's firewall. I have to have it disabled to see my other network devices. clean install makes no difference either.
At the moment im using Eset with its firewall turned off and using the W7 one.

Just upgraded. Not using anything. I'll give Avast! a try. Is it free or does it cost money? I'm too lazy to look.

I'm liking Avast!
Kaspersky crashed a lot (but that was back before 7000).
Norton was so-so on resources but trial ran out.
ESET seemed sluggish but that was back around 7000, too, so it's hard to compare.
Avast! installs well, resource use seems good and plus, it gives me someone to talk to on those long nights downloading leaked builds.....

rattelmike - I think that's asking for trouble. read the rules!

anyway you do NOT need avast pro unless you have some particular network needs. avast home has everything you need

I don't live in California, I live in Texas. The map is off by a little bit.

But it's a laptop, so I can bring it there. Is that Death Valley, or White Sands Missle Testing Range?
