Due to the recent threads on the Antivir update problems, potential KAV CHKDSK problems, and if anyone thinks that AVG has improved. I just wondered who all is using Avast, and how they like it. I have used it in the past and thought it was ok, but I thought I read somewhere recently it had it's own problems as far as Virus removal. My son uses it and likes it, and only uses it along with Windows XP Firewall for protection. While I admit I didn't like the GUI that much, I did like the different shields it had, and the Virus Data Backup Recovery, or what ever it was called, and even liked the voice feature when it updated. Anyway, I'm not knocking the other AV's I mentioned as I'm using AVG ISS now, have always liked Antivir PE, and especially liked AOL AVS which has the KAV engine. Just curious about Avast as I haven't heard too much about it lately that's all.
