avast! Free Antivirus for Mac is #1 download

avast! Free Antivirus for Mac was launched a mere week ago, and it only took three days to reach the #1 position on CNET’s download.com. avast! Free Antivirus for Mac fulfills the need for quality security just as the Mac community is recovering from the high-profile Flashback Trojan that infected 600,000 Macs. Many people realize now that OS X is not immune to attack, and new OS X malware is demonstrating how unprotected Macs can be infected when a user simply visits a website.

avast! Free Antivirus for Mac contains the same light, award-winning, certified, and highly acclaimed antivirus and anti-spyware engine as its avast! version 7 Windows counterpart. Learn more about it here.

    I don’t do facebook. I don’t like being forced to go to facebook. I don’t like making people multi multi billionaires by going to dumb facebook sites to “like” a company that doesn’t have the web talent to have their own intelligent community page. FB is contributing to the degeneration of intelligence and actually really interacting with people.

    Hello Avast! I have a problem, I uploaded my photo 3 days ago and I didn’t receive the email of avast. I think my photo isn’t in the contest and it was an error in the app, because it meets all the requirements.
    The title of the submit is “Avast, be free” and of the photo “Because you want to be free like a pirate in the sea.”
    This is my photo: http://i45.tinypic.com/2dkwpom.jpg
    Help me please, I spent much time and energy with the photo and I think Avast is the best antivirus, is very important to me to have a chance to win the contest.
