Thats exactly why it sucks because its free, i had it on my 7 and after removing it and installing Nod32, Nod32 picked up 3 Trojans that avast didn't even detect . Doesn't matter how much you know about pc's, Virus's are always going to get in no matter what specially if you have a fail AV like avast. Nuf said.

There is no av that will detect everything, Avast is no worse than any others I've used and a lot better than most.

Lol I guess it worked okay for me too. Tell me to use norton and I go *pisss*

It was much better than AVG. I use to run AVG before and I dunno why but it had some problems with windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. For a whole month I was getting like 40 crashes and I couldn't figure out what the hell it was (driver, memtest, HD test, prime95 stability test, disk error check and repair, loose cables...etc). I uninstalled AVG and I haven't had a single crash for over a month now. So ya fack AVG

But to be honest, not running any antivirus and using a very good firewall would be your best option :yahoo .

AVG is a fail antivirus. It does not detect the trojans which avast could detect. So I choose Avast 5 instead.
BTW there is no perfect antivirus which would detect all malware.
Any suggestions for firewall, Onion?

That might have been the 3 Trojans you've downloaded with the pirated Nod32. :lol:
