Microsoft Security Essentials is the new standard in free accessible real-time 
anti-virus programs.  It has a smaller footprint than either Avast or AVG, and 
is not a resource hog.

  Subject: Avast and Jaws again!

  Recently people on this list have discussed false posatives with Jaws and 

  I suspect that Avast has made updates since then.  Have these updates 
repaired the problem?

  If so do you all think that Avast is still a good antivirus program to use 
with Jaws? 
  To put the question another way, does Avast have a smaller footprint and take 
up less resources than AVG?

  Thanks, for any ideas you may have.
