    "Used to be good but now a pain due to false positives"

    August 23, 2011  |   By AspieMum

    Pros

    Easy to install. Doesn't appear to slow down the computer any. Older versions even worked on my low power computer I had before this one without problems.

    Cons

    It has started to find a number of false positives and I have found that the link that should enable you to put the program an an exclusion list does not work and another way of doing it gets it on the list but then Avast totally ignores the list.

    Summary

    Used to be brilliant but spoilt recently by false positives and the methods of stopping it blocking those false positives do not work. The programs are now stuck in the virus chest and I cannot use them.I have had to uninstall them as it causes the computer to crash otherwise. Doesn't matter how important those programs are if it mistakes them for a virus you lose the program even if it has been used for years before this without problem.
