    "Bean Me Up Scotty, I Hate Avast!"

    December 3, 2011  |   By just_air

    Pros

    The Shield's, the Sandbox, and the update's.

    Cons

    Scan's for hour's, can not get it to scan right no matter what I do. Avira also can not scan right, and it is all about scanning..............so if anybody can help me here I will come back to Avast.

    Summary

    I love the Shield's and the Sandbox and the voice and the way that Avast Update's.

    But for me it is all about the way it scan's. And the boot scan and the full system scan did not work when scanning archives and when I stopped Avast it said I had a lot of viruses and after a reboot my computer was useless had to do a system restore, but I used Norton GoBack. Than I uninstalled Avast, my computer is back to normal again.

    Wish I knew what I did wrong so that I could get Avast back and be HAPPY ONCE AGAIN!!!
