So, you're on avast forums to check how it works, how is the support? ???

I don't know! AVIRA has his own problems too, like make delay to open web-sites and...
some of last problems in new AVIRA 9 is fixed, like loud alert sound and false postive is fewer than before...
maybe I back to avast! and care more about what I'm doing and maybe not, this is what I've seen

I did scan my drive with avast! and it found 10 file infected
then I did install AVIRA and did scan same location and it found 134 infected file... yes! 134 different file... now tell me what to do!

Means nothing... could be only one infection missed, could be an Avira false positive...

no! I believe it's not false positive, about 120 of those 134 was W32/Virto.Gen and virto is already detected by avast, the different is between on power of scan and...
I never want to disturb avast!, avast! is a great anti-virus with so many benefites... easy to use for everone, small updates, easy to manage, large database of virus and compatible with any OS and other software...

for example one of them was foxit setup files, I did install it with avast! and found nothing, install it on my windows and get infected, then I did scan it with avira and detect sample of virto inside that... Tech...!!! hope alwil add things in next update to make it possible to detect with avast, I'm not enemy! I am friend!! ;)

Did you submit (some of) the files to virus@avast.com to allow detection improvement?

-= A ratio of 10:134.. Isn't it a little over-hyped..? In that case, avast wont just detect 10 if there are actually 134 infections, probably, most of the 134 are false positives..

No, I BELIEVE it's not false positive, I'm sure those are infected files, almost 120 of those 134 files had "Virto" and other files had other kind of infections... all of those 120 files was .exe files and those were the files I did use when my computer was infetced.

*avast! could find about 10 files as infected with Virto and not any other...
*Norton 2009 said my system is clean! (F***!)
*Windows Defender not working in that case so I don't know about detection rate of that
*my internet is very slow so I could not use any online scanner

now... read my signature! it's the thing I decide to do (about your question to choose between avast! and AVIRA) :)
after problems that I had with AVIRA, after that I removed other security software such as outpost and... now my Internet connection is normal and even a little faster and system working in top performance :)
