avast for 64 bit browsers

  I don't really understand anitvirus set up but I just recently install waterfox (and WOW! what a difference 64 bit is). Will avast work just as fine with this?

I don't know. I don't use avast in my browsers anyways lol.

But I think how avast works is it scans the port the browsers use and not the browsers themselves, so it should still work fine. :wink:

I don't use it in my browser either, I was curious if avast would work to prevent virus's through 64 bit browsers and I think you answered my question. Thanks
