    "Highly effective, easy to use, fully functional, automatic updates, EXCELLENT"

    June 27, 2007  |   By DSWDobson


    I like EVERYTHING about this Avast software, EVERYTHING. The free download version works very well and is not limitted in it's functionality like so many other "free trial" antivirus packages. I love the ease of use, it's a load, register, and forget about it program that automatically updates itself with the latest virus definitions every day without me having to do anything. I love that it has customizeable levels of heuristic virus detection to catch threats as yet unidentified. Finally, I love that it's free and still is fully functional. I feel completely safe wandering through virus laced web pages as Avast traps and eliminates harmful code. I give Avast two thumbs up and five stars in every catagory of measurement. AWESOME PROTECTION
