I was interested in your Avast! suggestion as I'd never heard of it before.
After Googling I see its been around for a while ...
Near the top of the Google groups query was this thread (31 posts) from
alt.comp.freeware (15-Mar-2003). After reading it I'm not sure I see a
strong reason to switch from AVG. (I don't run auto-detect anyway - just
scan the odd download if I'm not too sure about whence it came). If you're
dealing with a multi-user network where the users aren't neccessarily to
careful it may make alot more sense.
btw: are you intending to purchase a multi-user Pro version or just use the
free-Home version for your own use?
while I think of it I guess I should go and update my AVG - its been about a
month. see ya later.
Regards ... Alec
