My Free Av of choice as well for all Home systems, From XP machine to Windows 8 Pro 64bit machine--works well, protects good, low memory footprint, and CPU Usage

It proxies everything through itself and then forwards it to google analytics. No more Avast for me! Comodo is a much better alternative from a protection stand point anyways!
