    I did my own tests with the beta version and some near-0day malware (the flash bug exploits a few weeks ago). It did the job admirably. I changed my sister to it from Avast.

    I used to recommend AVG myself but after how many people have come to me for advice on malware because either AVG didn't find it or couldn't do anything about it made me reconsider. I was recommending Avast but it looks like this is the one now.
