I had a friend get hammered by a .bat attack; and surprisingly it couldn't uninstall Avira, which being a popular freebee, was surprising to me. Nearly all other AS solutions were uninstalled, and the hidden administrator account in the Home XP operating system was pwned and stopped all efforts to mitigate the infection. It was one of those hostage malware attacks.

However Avira was too slow on the fast draw to stop the injection packet, which it did recognize and remove - too late.

I've watched as Avast has won many a battle with malware, and kicked @ss in the PE environment. I've NEVER been let down by Avast on my lab honeypot!
