Yup, by far the two most downloaded programs on download.com. I live just two metro stops from Avast's Prague headquarters

BTW, the Petra team could learn much from them, they e.g. have five Czechs and three Americans in the top management, including the CEO (he was the vice-president of sales at Symantec who make the Norton Antivirus) so while a majority of the staff are Czech they are open to top professionals from other countries as well

Avast, AVG and Eset (the last one is based in the Slovak capital) protect about 40 percent of the world's computers against viruses = more than 400 million people

The WTA prefers China, which is understandable. Moreover, the Czech tennis federation prefers investing into talented players rather than into tournaments. So any potential tourney would have to be financed by private businesses at their own risk.

I didn't realize that either. Here's a funny little thing:- the year before Kvitova became one of my faves I was using AVG. I switched to Avira last year - just checked and found out that they're German. Barthel became one of my faves last year.

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Anyone still suprised the girls love Fed Cup? Shopping, meetings with fans, posing for photographs in nice dresses, delicious dinners, etc.

And the fact that they are strong favorites versus the Aussies helps as well

I've read somewhere that AVG's 2013 release is quite bad (slows down the computer, etc.) so good for you to switch to Avira and Barthel

So was 2012. I think it took up around 500K, but could of been almost 1GB of memory. Yeah, it's slow, unless you have a brand new computer).

IMO Fun is very, very, very important but if those things are more important to Kvitova than maximizing the use of her own tennis talent she may not become the tennis great she can be. From a tennis perspective I hope she and/or her team find ways to refocus on her personal career accomplishing. From an overall perspective, as long as she is happy and choosing based on her own preferences I'd say she's winning the most important game.

I've actually never had AVG. I got a great 3-year deal on Norton when buying a new laptop and then I have AVAST on my old home PC to support the local products/economy

But the AVG guys must do sth right, considering they've amassed +100 million users
