I am using Avast! free version, and it works great.
The only problem I'm experiencing with Avast right now is their persistent advertising in the systray pop-up ... and their insistence on offering the Chrome browser every damn time there is an engine update.
Not a tooting the horn of OS X but my Avast Free for that OS does nothing except its job of real-time protection, scans, and automatic definition updates. I wonder why the difference between the products for the two Operating systems.
For my Win 7 I do not use Avast but instead use a four different products that for me functions as a security suite. No ads though.--
The signal is usually drowned out by the noise.
