    "Still as good as ever!"

    May 14, 2010  |   By btljooz


    Like I said, this program is still as good as ever!


    It still conflicts a bit with SS&D's Tea Timer, but they do work together ~OK~. Can't use Malwarebyte's real time Protection Module with Avast at all. I guess cuz they're doing their jobs *too* well...LOL!


    I won't likely be changing my choice of AV on my Windoze machine in the near future as I'm still quite content with Avast!

    BTW: The new UI took some getting used to, but that's no biggie, really. I did kinda like the old one because it was different than all the rest.

    Yep, you got the Pro version which is not free. You have to get the Home version which IS very much FREE! You still have to "Register" it but with Avast 5 that process is very much streamlined compared to 4.x.
    People who don't even know how to properly download a program have no business commenting on it!!!!!
