Hello, right now I have Avast free 5.0. I was looking at their site, and it only cost $29.99 for 1 year up to 3 PCs of avast internet security. Is it worth it? It has a firewall to replace the windows firewall, and a sandbox. I really love the free version, and have it on all my computers.

Avast 6.0 is now out and the free version has a sandbox, so really the Internet Security one is not worth the upgrade
