    "Worthy replacement for Norton & McAffe"

    February 2, 2007  |   By Raven_Three_Feathers


    It Just plain works, no slow downs, easy updates, easy install, It's all Good. I've used Norton on my home systems since Dos 3.3 days but when I saw the $49.95 subscription to update software I already own I said ENOUGH, and went looking. I found alot of buzz on the net about Avast and checked it out. It couldn't be better. I'm going to buy the Pro version for the systems I care for at work and replace McAffe there, which is also over priced and getting slower with every update.

    Honest folks I've been doing IT work since the 80's and I've never been so pleased so fast, you gotta' try this one. Give it a shot because it's free and keep using it because it's best.


    Only that I didn't find it sooner !
