    "Ease of use just like the video and installs good."

    After you open up the Icon you can set it up to operate the way you want. It takes a few min's to figure out. I hope it can detect real time protetion.


    I installed this one because of the problems with AVG last week. I wish the program would cover more but its free and does a pretty good job I hope.

    Man, from my expertise in virus removal without antiviruses, and seeking and destroy viruses, AVG have failed miserably against Avast when it comes to virus detections...
    I have seen viruses 2 weeks from first day attack not being detected by AVG, removed AVG, installed avast and goodbye viruses.
