My System Specs

Default

Nice to read along, and glad to see that I am not the only one doing the (paranoid) complete shut down after an Alt+F4 - or just pull the plug. Loosing half an hour of work is lot easier than half a day of restoring/reinstalling.


With my humble 2 cents of experience; couple years ago now, myself and my girlfriend visited the same website. Her laptop was running a free Avast and mine a free Avira - thinking I did my research on Avira. She barely opened the website and Avast went off, while I was going about the site like it was rainbows and unicorns. So needless to say, I use Avast now and happily - the software has proven its self on numerous occasions too, so it's not just a one-time instance of some (false) detection.

I am fully aware of some of Avast past hiccups and some people might have their own opinions, but that is my 2 cents.
