Thank you avast!
« on: November 27, 2011, 06:13:47 AM »
A big thanks to the developers and makers of avast anti virus.

I have been using a mac for years and haven't downloaded any anti virus for the past 6 years of using it, however, with the increasing popularity of the apple computers, it will just be a matter of time that idiots will start making more viruses targeted at the OSX.

I've created this account just to come on here to thank you for providing a important and free product/service. With this program I will feel more at ease when using my computer.

So a very big Thank you!

i know there are viruses out there, that's why i said "more" lol.

but so far i haven't seen any. however i always exercise caution, clear cache, erase hard drive every now and then, so haven't really gotten into big problems.
