[Rave] Avast!

I can't believe how fast, and good Avast! is. It has a good detection rate for advanced or average user. It is very lite. Well maybe there is something wrong with my Avast! config, because i could not see any slow downs by opening up or running apps.

I think Software Updater add-on is useless as well. But for a novice it is a good add-on to Avast!.

I had it on but it was a pain, so I update manually.

Manually updating software is better than auto updating for sure.

And much, much better when Firefox is asking you to update, Avast is asking you to update and the application's software updater is asking you to update. Enough already!

The Mac version is terrific in all areas of performance while being exceptionally user friendly and self-sustaining while proactively communicating with the user and IMO without any weaknesses.

I know nothing of the current Windows version.

Change the option in Firefox to "Never check for updates" & then periodically check it yourself if it is bothersome.

Yep, I use it on a 2 of my laptops because I exceed the allowable devices for Norton.

I did that earlier after letting the experiment with seeing how the updater notification works.

I use that as well. The chief of security (oversees the department's firewalls) told me about this.
