    "I'm coming back to Avast !"

    January 21, 2005  |   By Redrik


    I posted a negative about Avast. That was a long time ago when it was DOS and the company contacted me and was helpful but by that time I was happy with AVG. Later I used Avast for a year. It kept my system virus free and it spoke to me as well. We became friends! Then it wouldn't update and I was too stupid to work out I'd had it for a year and had to re-register so I went back to AVG. Now AVG have a new version which doesn't like my email/firewall combination so here I am back to Avast again. I don't know which is better of AVG and Avast but I prefer both to Norton and McAfee which I encounter in the workplace. Maybe I'll even stick with Avast this time.
