Not exactly part of the free AV, is it?
Support for IE 9 and Firefox 4? Shouldn't they start thinking about other browsers such as Opera?

PC Tools Free AV has never been good for any reason. I would recommend Spyware Doctor With AV over it any day.

@jamescv7 Pretty true, also the AV from PCTools is weak, while Spyware Doctor with av has the Anti-Spyware which is amazing, the AV which is pretty much crap but it can catch a few things and threatfire and a lot more. I would not recommend their Internet Security because it is TOO heavy, but this is getting out of topic so yeah..all I will say is You will waste your time if you download this thing, better go with another free solution.
