"Continues To Work For Me"
The new interface is a vast improvement. The protection offered is still the best out there in my experience. I've tried others, including AVG, Norton, McAfee, and Commodo, and still find that Avast and MS Security Essentials (they play very well together) are the best protection - no infections in several years worth of usage, from XP to Win 7. No other product has been able to match that record.
I did have to change my firewall from EMSI to Private Firewall after the last program update. No one was ever able to figure out what the problem was, but switching to Private Firewall did the trick. Everything now works very well together.
I've not suffered any of the problems others have reported: no crashes, no infections let through, and very few upgrade 'offers'. I have trusted Avast for many years, and continue to do so. And the price is just right, too!
