    Actually, I ask avast about this and here's the reply I got from them:


    "Some parts of avast! are running in kernel mode. We prefer layered
    security model, so avast! is antivirus & antiworm."

    Well, just another thing that gives me more peace of mind. ;)

    Wrong , you apparantly only tried older versions of the PG free. The 'new' free versions allow unlimited protections (termination,modification,reading), but you can no longer block global hooks, protect physical memory, install drivers and SMH.
