Free AV Tool – avast!

I needed AntiVirus (AV) for my new laptop, and since I hate Norton, I quickly uninstalled the free trial version that came pre-installed on my laptop and decided to give avast! a look.

I had read reviews and noticed that it had received several awards, and a quick look at their website indicated that I could use avast! 4 Home Edition free of charge.  I quickly installed it, accepted the defaults, and have been happy ever since.

It has a very easy to use interface and works pretty well in the background without being too intrusive.  The Home Edition comes with the following features:  simple user interface, resident protection, P2P and IM shileds, network shield, web shield, automatice updates, integrated virus cleaner, and support for 64-bit windows.

I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a free tool to use on your home PC.
