    Hi all,

    Has anyone got any knowledge or experience of Avast Anti-Virus software?

    I haven't heard of it personally, and just wondered if anyone had anything good or bad to say about it, or could recommend suitable alternatives?

    This is Anti Virus software that would be used in a small business environment, and I believe it competes with offerings from Symantec, McAfee, and Sophos etc.

    Any input appreciated. :)

    Switched to this earlier in the year and am Totally happy with it.
    I manually update religously so control the AV myself.
    Small resource usage, sweet interface and all for free.
    I am happy to recommend it.
