I just did a clean install of the RTM Windows 8.1 x64 and would like t know before I wreck my system
Is avast! Free Antivirus compatible with Windows 8.1 yet? What is the exact version that I need to be downloading?
I have a 3 year license for Eset NOD32 and a 3 year License for Kaspersky Internet Security and a 4 year license for Bitdefender AV but although the last 2 score well in AV tests, they have a lot of glitches.
NOD32 = Not yet compatible with Windows 8.1 and even though their Beta version 7 IS compatible, I don't want to install a Beta software. Additionally, they haven't been doing well in independent AV tests and some sites report that their performance impact on the system is high unlike the old days where they were super light
Bitdefender AV = absolute crap, although it gets 100% in all virus tests I've seen, it by itself is a virus and causes a lot of trouble starting from slow browsing on the web to many false positives
Kaspersky Internet Security & AV = Not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet, I am tired of them to release the updated Patch B installer and also sick of their stupid activation system, you activate the product 3 times and BAAM, your key is blacklisted and good luck with support to get your key reset
thus, I turn to Avast but I don't know how good is it when it comes to performance impact on a system, false positives, adverse effect on browsing
please help a n00b!3
