    "So far it's been great"

    February 25, 2011  |   By Nikilet


    Runs quietly and does it's thing.
    Startup time much improved over previous BitDefender IS.
    Fairly easy to understand and maneuver within program.
    Avast forum has been very good to supply prompt answers when I've had a question or small problem.


    At this point I really don't have anything bad to say. I sure hope it stays that way.

    I do really like Avast Internet Security. However, I have found that the package did slow my computer way down as far as startup. It was super fast when I just had the new Avast Antivirus. But when I switched to the Internet Security it just seemed to get slower and slower. Right now it is kind of agonizingly slow and I wish they would do something to fix this.
