well, avast is faster than default windows solution.

also, you can check that site for even better antivirus solution than avast, if you like :D

as for the rest - i run the exact combination on my portable typewriter (aspire switch 10), and everything is fine (comodo is sometimes too paranoid, but so am i) :D
