    Hi Technodrome!

    What is your personal opinion about avast! ?

    Well, at least the most recent test listed was a Pass - perhaps demonstrating that they are making efforts to improve - over the many previous tests they failed since the beginning of 1999.

    Its not "Poor" AV product! On scale of 1-5, I would rank it 2.85!
