    Love Avast- even the free version is better than most of the pay AV's out there, with a lot less bullshit involved. Used to run Zonealarm, constanty having to stop and clear alerts, after fourth virus got past it, said fuck it and loaded Avast on a friend's advice- no virus has gotten through it in over a year.

    avast! has been my savior since I got Windows 7 back in 2009.

    It runs great with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and CCleaner (Firefox with adblock plus,noscript and better privacy addons.....I dun stole that line from SeXtion 8) to keep my PC running 24/7.

    TY. :coffee:

    Avast picked up a virus the other day and deleted it, most of the time it blocks them before it even has to delete them, best free AV out there for years running.
