I've been using Avast for a few years now.
No problem with spam, they just email you in 12-18 months and ask you to re-register.
In my opinion its the best free AV out there.

I myself haven't registered with Avast yet as I tend to wait it out until near the expiration to do it. But there were 4 million downloads of Avast via download.com and I couldn't see any mentions of users being spammed in their comments (added to that, Scallywag's comment), so I would think you're good to go.

I've just found this thread after starting a new one asking about McAfee! sorry guys and gals.
I've got to say after reading all the positive posts about Avast, I'm afraid I'm going to have to say it let a trojan through which caused havoc on my pc! I've a dear friend who put me onto Avast a while back saying he had AVG on which also let a virus through.
So now its looking like Avast isn't so good.
With getting the trojan I've had to reformat my pc and have installed McAfee, BUT am now having serious doubts as on another forum, they were saying it was terrible and thoroughly recommended NOD32? so am seriously thinking of trying it. I know you have to pay, but I'm not sure how much.

McAfee user for 7 years - not 1 virus and system running 100% all day, every day!!!
As for it not working with Vista, register it on an XP machine then go to the McAfee website and download it from your account there - it will download the correct installer for Vista (it would seem the Sky CDs don't have the Vista version on them)
