"Well, I have one big gripe"
Constant and irritating "updates"
I've used Avast Free for quite some time and, over this time, I have one big gripe about. It is forever intruding to "update your virus definitions." I mean, three times a day or more. I can tell when it is doing this because my PC slows wayyyyyyy down and even freezes up while I'm working. I tried to alter the settings to "manual updating" and I got all kinds of warnings and nags..."YOUR COMPUTER MAT BE AT RISK!" I wonder just how often my virus definitions have to be updated? Give me a break! So be warned about this interminable, constant updating and the slow-downs that happen.
