Beer?  bahh it all pretty much tastes the same--all bad. Heineken has to be one of the worst but I don't drink any beer.

I remember once in a night club in Mexico getting bottled beer that had a horse's head on the label. I tasted it and told the waiter it was good of them to put the brewmaster's picture on the bottle.

I been using Avast for 2 months now and none of the programs that
I have on my computer have had a conflict with Avast. The list of
programs include some that have already been mentioned here like
CCleaner and MBAM. Some have not like Sbxie and Defense Wall.
Anyway I think Avast works real nice on computers and unless the
user has another AV or Anti malware real time I don't see any reason
why it would conflict.

About the MBAM discussion going on here, all I like to say is that MBAM
is not a AV but its designed to detect what most AV applications don't
care fighting. That is the beauty of MBAM and the reason why all users
should have it as their malware scanner not installed real time.

Yes MBAM is an excellent malware removal tool. It is best employed in that fashion, to remove things that have slipped past your other defenses. In my experience with it, it totally removes the malware, including registry entries. I've had to use it twice on the other machine here because of the user not responding correctly to alerts from her AV (MSE) and allowing a rogue to partially install itself. She was getting the usual popups saying the machine was not protected and wanting to do a (fake) scan. MBAM totally removed the malware.

A couple of other programs I use with Avast are SuperantiSpyware, and Win Patrol. Both are paid and active in real time.

Yes and even Windows XP seems to run pretty good.
