I have a message saying upgrade, not that I want to pay. I am using the free version. I clicked on it, now I have a message saying Get WebGuardand the Avira /searchFree Toolbar. Should I go ahead and get this?

With respect, this is your own personal decision. People here will tell you whether it works or not. As to whether you should get it, that's up to you.

If someone here says "Get it" and it subsequently knackers your computer, then you will blame these forums.

Sorry to be such a damp squib, but I'm sure you can see my point.

Also some other nigglies recently for me.

So I uninstalled and installed Avast 6 Free.

So far, I am impressed. Whether it is diligent and not over zealous remains to be seen.

(Avast.com wouldn't let me get Free Version due to a hovering upgrade ad that I could not bypass. I got it from downloads.cnet.com)
