"Good But Too Aggressive"
Free and easy interface. Easily customized.
Too aggressive for my liking in some areas.
This is a pretty decent AV, but some of the shields are either much to aggressive - they almost ALWAYS think some of the things I do are suspicious also it has a habit of thinking IPs like AOL are malware! Also it doesn't seem to like screen savers for some strange reason. Some of the screen savers are ones I've downloaded and used for YEARS but never had a problem with any of them until using Avast. Best used by those who don't have dial up or any other screen savers than the standard ones included with Windows.
