    thanks for the thumbs up :) is my set-up good? I already tried different products like Comodo, Avira, Bitdefender, Baidu and 360 IS...but after few weeks I came back to Avast 8 IS because It is more stable and I feel a lot safer...

    No, it has been discussed a lot here, and the general consensus is that detection rates are very poor. My own experience with using it confirms this.

    Welcome to the party cyberpau. Avast and MBAM and Hitman make a good combination.
