    Anyone Using Avast Anti-Virus Software?


    I have Media Composer 5.5.2 and need to install and anti-virus on my system. It's unavoidable that it's going to have to occasionally go on the Internet (though I wish I didn't have to on that computer).  My preferred anti-virus software is Avast. Does anyone else use this. Is it compatible with Media Composer? I'm willing to use either the free version of Avast or the paid.

    I've not used Avast on my editing PC, I'm currently using Microsoft Security Essentials (64 bit version) without issues

    I work in IT Security when I'm not trying to work out Media Composer and I have a few tips for safer internet use based on my experiences with Malware, no doubt off topic here, so send me a PM and I'll send you some details.
