21. Ah. I found that recent article I mentioned:

Should You Believe the Rumors About Kaspersky Lab?

You can find any number of news articles suggesting improper activities by Kaspersky Lab. The US government removed Kaspersky from its list of approved programs and, more recently, added it to a list of banned programs. Best Buy dropped Kaspersky products from its stores. Kaspersky has hired security experts who previously worked for the Russian government. Kaspersky is a Russian company, darn it!

The list goes on, but what's impressively absent is any factual evidence of security-related misbehavior. To get a handle on this situation, I asked for thoughts from security experts I know, both in the US and around the world. ...

But, like I said, I'm not here to try to persuade anyone about this.

Having said that, I wouldn't rely on Avast alone for anti-malware myself - used to use it and a variety of other programs over the years, and it let too much through, which is why I switched. I might use it as a real-time scanner, but I'd want to back it up with something like Malwarebytes (not used in real time, but as a periodic scanner).
