Fantastic security; I run it alongside Kaspersky 2009 and have never had a problem that one or other of these two has not dealt with.Occasionally I also run Spy Bot but it never finds anything that has got through. I have installed this program on over 50 computers.When you get to the screen that shows the items to be installed uncheck the option to install "Browser Protection".
I find it to be very user friendly as well as price you can't beat for what it provides is peace of mind for any one that may use a computer weather you are an advanced user on a novice.After some searching, the Avast web shield came up as a problem for many folks. I can't recommend, without a warning about this issue.While full featured, the EULA is too wide ranging (my opinion) in what it allows the software to do.Finally I figured out that if you turn off the avast browser add-on's it fixes everything. Of course I know how to deal with this now but for the general non techie how would they ever figure it out.To stop this from happening to anyone else I would highly suggest when installing this version of avast to make sure to do a custom install not the standard install.
