And I haven't had any problems.



I like my Avast.



Especially when home users don't want to have to be for a subscription to an Anti-virus that fails to do it's job, and a freeware alternative out does it by leaps. If you're a home user, free anti-virus solutions is the way to go unless you have the notion that you get for what you pay for (which there is nothing wrong about that philosophy).

IMO, Microsoft Security Essentials is a great step above Windows Defender. I am quite impressed on how good of a job it does considering I've seen some pretty fail anti-virus solutions from Microsoft.
