It's odd that you have so few and yet you can still produce an anti virus that beats Norton, which has like 1000% more people.


You'd be actually surprised how small their R&D department is... Same with McAfee.

I'd say at least 95% of their staff are sales/marketing/administration people... :)

I think I put it clearly.. :P

Yeah you did, and I understood it right the first time. Guess I was being paranoid and reading between the lines. Just want to make sure, because I always add the link to this forum in the favorites list of the friends and famlies PC's  that I install Avast on.

By the way, last night, I added my help on a cnet forum for W98 users (like me - W98SE) for a person who was having trouble with Norton AV. I gave instructions on getting rid of Norton before adding any other AV. What a pain in the ...errr... butt that is!    :(  

Anyway, one of the moderators had suggested that AVG would be a good free AV that was better than Norton. So, after my instructions, I added that the person should try avast!4 Home after all the trouble of getting rid of Norton. I mentioned this great forum with support from users as well as avast personel. I mentioned the frequent VDB updates that are quick and easy as well as other great features of avast! I included a link to the avast! homepage, too.

Hopefully, that person will give avast! a try next!    :)
