    It is for real – believe me – Avast has never let me down; but it is NOT an anti-malware, even though it does a pretty good job of covering the grey area between the two.

      I am glad you said that because a lot of people expect their AV to catch every piece of malware they download. That way of thinking is simply not realistic.

      While I recommend Avast Free Edition to most, I am a bit unorthodox in my personal choices. I choose to use Sandboxie with a couple of wicked on-demand scanners like MBAM and HitMan Pro. I am currently flirting with a behavior blocker or HIPS, but I have not made a long term decision yet as to which of those I will be applying, if at all.

      The gist is that viruses and worms are noisy, It is the Trojans and Rootkits that are the problem a lot of the time; they can be so darn quiet and stealthy, and while viruses and worms are annoying and cause performance issues, it is the Rootkit that is used to exploit your lack of online financial security.

    I’ve been installing Avast for most of the year now. Not a single complaint from a client yet.
