I couldn't believe it either. Haven't used it long enough for definitive answer, but so far so good.

I used to recommend avast, but then those same people I recommended it to kept getting infected. So I ditched it all together. Out of 5 users I installed it for, 3 of them were seriously infected.

I've switched everything over to MSE even on my rigs, and so far nothing for 5 months. We'll see.
