    I used to swear by Avira Antivir in the past, low system resources, excellent detection rates, low false positives! just perfect

    now i installed it and it asked me to install the ask toolbar which i declined (WTF, an antivirus telling u to install a virus) then I was bombarded by ads and pop ups everywhere regarding upgrading and other crap!

    Uninstalled it right away and installed Avast! antivirus free v 7 (using it for the first time now)
