I am happy with it after using it for a few months.Automatically updates frequently which is a good sign and nothing has got to me so far,touch wood.

I have been using Avast! for almost a year now, and I have got to say, my computer has never been so quick (used to own Norton Internet Security)
It also updates DAILY

I'd agree with both the above views. I dumped Norton a short time ago and found my laptop much faster and had no complaints about avast.

I've used it on a Win98, XP and Media Center PC's. It works really well and doesn't hog system resources like some AV's. It updates automatically.

Make sure you uninstall and remove all traces of any existing AV before installing Avast.

Avast home Edition in eighth position in latest Advisor tests.Even below Norton!
Kaspersky seems to be the one, I have read good reports about it on this forum.

I ditched Norton recently when it asked for another subscription. Avast seems to be working just as well so far.
