Just wanted a trusted product review of Avast, and a reccommendation as to whether or not it's truly better than the setup I run now.

I use Ewido, AVG AntiVirus, AdAware, and Spybot. I hear that Avast should do the work of all of these suckers. What're the pros and cons of this seemingly wonderful anti-virus, anti-everything software?

Avast and AVG are the virus protectors.

Ad-Aware and SpyBot are the spyware protectors.

If you decided to do away with AVG and get Avast, you should keep Ad-Aware and SpyBot.

They do different jobs.
I have yet to see one program that takes care of it all.
