AVG or Avast?

They are very similar in track record, though it tends to swing....for a while there AVAST seemed to rank higher in viruses caught, but it seems to be swinging back to AVG from the more recent reviews I've read.
Both are memory resident, both scan email, so that is nice.
Both will check for new updates -- avast checks on a "every XXX minutes" standard, while AVG checks on a given hour in one day.
Avg does have a schedule system scan, which is nice....Avast does not.

If you have everything set correctly, you can get it to wipe virus and alert you of them as you get them (if you do)
AVG is the one I highly recommend

Except a boot time scan.
AVG, I find that it does EVEYTHING that you need in an AVG
If you turn off the skin off on Avast it is super simple to use.
It is alot more intuitive from what I can see, and what I recommend to all of my customers.

From what I've heard, I'll stick with AVG for now. Thanks for the reviews guys.

For BUSINESS users both AVG and Avast! are way better than Norton or Mcafee. For the same reasons. The version that you pay for has more options than the free home editions.
My favorite is Avast! Pro. I use this for my business. The reason it is better is that they have a support system that uses a forum (like this one) and that often the responses are from the engineers who wrote the program.
My vote is for Avast!... with AVG coming in a very close second. And, at the bottom of the field Norton and Mcafee are tied.
