What i like about avast! the most is a direct contact with developers. Sure it's great that avast! is free, has great detection and is loaded with features but a chance to talk to guys behind the program means a lot to me. So you know how serious is the team behind the program, what new you may expect and best of all, they actually listen to me and other users and also fix or change things if we report or suggest them. This is what most of programs don't have and i see it as huge disadvantage for users and developers that don't offer this kind of contact. So no matter how many programs i tried, i always returned to avast! jmostly because of this. ;D

I totally agree and it is a huge breath of fresh air when compared to many other products and not just AV/Security software.

It is this type of support that is so often forgotten, but is very important and valuable, so almost 5 years on I'm a very happy avast user...

Yes, I agree that not only is avast! a great av solution but this forum goes a long way to inforce that feeling. In the 6 years I have used avast!, there has been no infections uncaught by avast! over the use of 2 different computers. In this forum, I have learnt so very much about computer security and am still learning everyday with the help & postings of too many of you ... the users of this forum.   :)

Hi Dan,

bob3160 might encounter Friday there, because it sure has some features of the island of Robinson Crusoe's.
Well as it stands now he has to wait another three days,
