I've been a fan of Avast for a long time, about 5 years now. While I personally don't use it anymore (I don't use anything beyond MSE), I do still recommend it to friends who are not gurus and may download crap they shouldn't.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

From personal experience (one that is not a guru), Avast has always been good to me and my systems. I have not found any conflicts, even with the free versions. I also use Maleware Bytes and still no conflicts. And used system resources on my systems are, well not even visable.
MSE - I use to use that package, for quite some time - until the installer program started to "sputter" on me. Microsoft was aware of the issue and I suspect that it has been fixed for the none gurus (me) now, but I needed to move on before something did happen. Will have to look into it again.
Thanks for bringing this up on the forum. The wrong Anti Virus can create problems - Avast has been wonderful for me.
