    The RTM of most any AV should pick all of this up anyway provided they scan the temp folders for your browser (and I think most AV's do).

    So I think it might be a moot point to worry about HTTP scanning.

    well one benefit i see of web scanning is that it will scan archives. KAV's rtm for example doesnt do this. for me i like nod32 since it support all programs that downlaod via the specified ports, otoh u could argue that since avast only supports certain programs like browsers (by default) that it wont interfere or stall certain downloads. for example in higher efficiency mode getright doesnt display the correct percentage since its still going through imon, similar things happen with spyware blaster. and lastly for f-secure, i havent tried it as the comp i tested f-secure on cant handle the huge resource hit.

    I and many of my friends have been using Avast for a while and find it to be very good, expecially the web and mail scanner as well as the P2P, Network and IM modules.
