Say, does version 10 apply to the /FREE/ flavor too? I use Avira Premium.

This thread prompted me to update my free version. First thing I noticed
was a popup warning me that I should be running in a limited user account
rather than an administrator account. Good advice, actually. Fortunately
there's a "Do Not Show This Message Again" that can be checked. :-)

Most malware can't install itself in a limited user account. Some people
create a limited user account and use it for safety's sake. I only have one
account (administrator) and prefer to keep it that way, even though it is
not as safe.
It's one of those "do as I say, not as I do" type of things. :-)
