    "Shotgun approach doesn't work for me!"

    December 10, 2009  |   By famousdavis1

    Pros

    Highly touted, but I uninstalled it within an hour or two.

    Cons

    After scanning, it provided a list of threats -- some of which I knew were harmless. But so far as I could tell, my only two choices were remove everything or remove nothing -- and that wasn't a viable solution. I uninstalled the program.

    Summary

    After giving up on Avast after using it for the past 5 years (constant false warning with my legit PC Tools software), I tried Avira with disappointing results. My solution was to install AVG -- it's running perfectly!
