"Best free Antivirus."

December 20, 2014  |  By JoshPhillySportsFan1

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

Pros

Has wifi network scanning and has a scan option so you can scan for Virus's and Malware both at the same time. Doesn't slow down my laptop like Norton did.

Cons

None so far!

Summary

Avast is the best free Antivirus. I use to have Norton 360 on my laptop but Norton slowed my laptop down. Now I use Avast Free Antivirus and Windows Firewall I also use iobit Malware Fighter free version for some back up protection and so far I haven't had any problems with my laptop. I even use Avast Free Mobile Protection on my Android devices I highly recommend using Avast Free Antivirus.

"Best free Anti-Virus ever!"

December 19, 2014

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

Pros

1. FREE!
2. Lots of features offered free.
3. Reliable, able to detect most virus and spyware
4. Still supports xp users.

Cons

The only setback I see is that sometimes when it scans it sometimes induces hang or pc slowdown, but i guess it affects older pcs only, as I dont observe it in my latest pc.

Summary

I always recommend this antivirus and when friends come to have their pc reformatted, I include AVAST as a default program.

"very good for the low price of FREE"

December 18, 2014  |  By blair.diehl.7

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

Pros

I like the fact that I can be online and if I search on bing it will tell me what website are secure, and not to mention the fact that I am using the free version. I have had several pops up warnings that a virus was attempted and Avast had blocked it. VERY VERY HAPPY very good product.

Cons

only thing I can think of would be the pro version be a bit cheapier

Summary

Love the Product

"The Very Best Anti Virus"

December 18, 2014  |  By jukes101

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

Pros

Avast has added a smart scan which is quick and reliable. Can still run a boot scan which I have not found in any other anti virus free or paid for. There is also a sandbox which if you suspect a file could be harmful to your p.c.you can run the file in the sand box and if their is malware/viruses it will not harm your p.c.Their are numerous extra,s which Avast has added to their software to ensure that your p.c. is safe at all times.

Cons

None that I have come across.

Summary

I have been using Avast for more than 10 years and although I have tried other anti virus software , I found nothing that compares to Avast. Still the best and remains the best and always at the cutting edge.
