      Well its only been a few days so I will reserve judgement for a bit incase I end up with egg on my face. But yes dead easy to use, and the little icon thingy down in the right corner spins round when it is working, So you can see exactly when it is using resource or idle, which is quite cool.

      I have been using Avast for years as it is so easy to use, it has never let me down. I have also installed it on everybody else computers in the family and non of them have any problems with it either. You get daily updates, infact sometimes you get two or three updates a day and this is all done automatically so you don't have to do a thing.
