    I think that Avant merely runs over Internet Explorer so you would probably be facing the same security risks. Have you tried Firefox---it really is excellent and the extensions make the browsing experience so much fun.

    linskyjack is right. Avant runs off of the Trident engine which IE uses as well. I would rather use Firefox because it is more popular and has more add-ons, themes, and better support.

    Also, it definitely doesn't come with spyware.

    It probably is a bit faster since it is a smaller browser.
