    Default Heads up for Avast users!

    The newest update for avast is marking alot of programs as viruses, do not fear, they are clean, however...

    DO NOT REBOOT!


    This will cause your pc not to boot into windows.

    I read this is the best free anti-virus:
    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
    And what's most surprising it's from M$. Installing it now, from high recommendation on an older OCN thread.
