so do you expect it to find anything
No! Which I attribute to Avast!'s effectiveness. On the other hand, I do mutiple scans with multiple malware scanners periodically just to be sure ;)

Wow! This post sure took off with a life all it's own. I had to look clear back to make sure it was even the one I started. I'm wondering if there is truth in what I read about Malwarebytes. If so, I am sorry I just purchased it a couple months ago. Oh, well ...

To answer YoKenny's comments, I do have IE9 and Firefox 8.
