    "Blue icon returns!"

    August 13, 2011  |   By ZRMaster

    Pros

    Interface..

    Cons

    Detection is terrible .
    30 days if I don't register??? why???

    Summary

    OK... i had avast a couple years ago when it had a blue tray icon... it was terrible.. and now new version... i gave it a try for a month or so.. then i noticed that my PC is acting strange... then i bought a license for xxxxxx antivirus (i dont want to advertise it) and then i found that i had 10-15 (i cant remember) worms that avast didn't detected. What a surprise....
    If u prefer free antivirus protection better avoid this, there are better solutions .. i tried almost every free AV there is..
    If u want a maximum protection, no loss of data and no problems just buy one (even avast internet security, that's surely better then free version).. I did (not avast :-) ), and i have no problems since....
    Hope this helps....

    WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO TO REGISTER?? HARDLY A DAMN THING THAT'S WHAT! YOU, SIR, DESERVE TO BE RUNNING AVG...


    Every time I have a friend complain to me about their computer being astonishingly slow or them having trouble with a virus, almost without fail their response to my "what virus protection do you use" is AVG... I am tired of having to convert everyone, skip the fore play and get the best right away, AVAST for 7+ years and 0 viruses.
