On my main PC (W7 Pro) I still use MSE and have never had a virus problem.

Think it's a play on words - comodo/commode

Yep. Applicable to stuff that is to be got rid of.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Win 10 Pro on both systems.

Avast! usually comes near the top in AV reviews and I have no quarrel with Avast! as an AV. It's the darned irritating end-of-scan window that annoys me.

Sadly not, I've got all turned off that I can. It's a child window that Avast! opens at the end of a scan rather than a pop-up.

IMO if the scan completes ok - the normal case - it should be a pop-up from the notification area for a couple of seconds to let you know. It shouldn't be a window that zaps over whatever you're working on at the time.

Resurrecting this thread to give an update.

I replaced Avast! by Kaspersky (courtesy of Barclays) a few days ago. So far quite happy, much less intrusive than Avast! And, assuming it's giving me much the same protection, then I'm likely to stay with it. Unless things change of course.
