    HUH? Be specific.
    Personally, I disable the File System Shield:
    • heavy resource usage
    • major performance impact
    I use Avast for its proactive features (email & link scanning) to keep the bad guys out.
    I do manually scan every download prior to using or installing. That should cover 99.99% of the risk and I can use the GROSS assumption that "once it's good, it should stay that way" (told you it was gross)
    Just my $0.02

    It's not compatible. You better use Avira or other AV's.

    Thanks, but I'm using another AV on it which I don't recall right now, probably Windows Defender.
