Ireland edged out France in a tight contest to win the avast! 100 millionth user celebration. Was it the luck of the Irish? Or was it divine retribution for the “Hand of God II”, French striker Thierry Henry’s hand ball which set up France for play-off victory and ended Irish hopes for a place in the 2010 World Cup finals? We don’t know. But, we do know that avast! got its 100 millionth registered user this December 8th. With the clock just about to hit 11:00 Central European Time, one lucky Irishman kicked his registration into the avast! database just seconds ahead of a Frenchman to win the prize - an expenses-paid trip for two to Prague, home of avast! antivirus software.
