    "avast! Free Antivirus" has replaced PC Tools Spyware Doctor in Google Pack on the pages of a number of non-English languages of European origin.
    The program I got is avast! 5.0.178 Beta 2, English language (see pic)

    It's probably quite safe but, as always, can't stress enough, it's beta, it's beta, it's beta, it's beta, etc.....

    I like Avast! 4,and I am sure 5 will be even better,but it still seems a little irresponsible to add a BETA software to something like Google-Pack.
    Even a pretty well advanced BETA like Avast5.

    Still no doubt, better than the "definition challenged" Google Pack version of Spyware Doctor.

    That's a surprise choice. A Beta?
    I like Avast, but I think Google is jumping the gun a bit by adding a beta.

    But some software betas are better than other software finals. ;)
