Question about Avast Free on Windows 8
« on: June 01, 2013, 08:31:48 PM »
Does Avast work with the Early Loading Anti malware feature in Windows 8 I think is what it's called?    Or is that only for Windows Defender built into Windows 8?

No, it's not just for Windows Defender, it can be used by 3rd party companies as well - but honestly, the restrictions imposed by Microsoft (for performance reasons) are making it rather hard to use for anything useful. So I believe (though I'm not 100% sure) we don't use it at the moment.
