Hmm, not to jinx it but I've been using avast for a while now with no problems. 
 I haven't jumped to jaws 11 yet though.

  I used Avast for about a month last year and after one of their updates my 
computer crashed.  I now use Microsoft Security Essentials and all is very well 
here.  Great program MS has produced.

  My avast went crazy last night and detected trojan horses in all my 
computers.  Two computers even had their memory infected.  It's not a JAWS 
issue.  Mine attached themselves to spybot and skype.

  I just went to open Outlook and Avast has come with an alert. Supposedly a 
Trojan called Win32:Delf-MZG [Trj] was found at C:\Program Files\Freedom 
Scientific\Shared\OOMHelper\1.0\OOMHelper.dll. This is clearly a JFW file and I 
wondered if Avast was making an error due to inaccurate classification. Has 
anyone else had this alert?
