"JS Scripter infection, extremely difficult to remove"

May 22, 2015

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2218

Pros

nominally effective

Cons

allowed JS Scripter to infect two computers via JPG file, Would be very expensive for the normal person to remove this infection.

Summary

Fortunately using other software, we were able to remove the virus. Required manual location and deletion of infected files.

"Best Free Antivirus+Anti-malware Program"

May 22, 2015  |  By henryconchile

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2218

Pros

Free, user-friendly, great job at catching sites with malware/spyware while live web surfing, works well on older (5+ years) computers too.

Cons

The pop-up notifications can get annoying. I have noticed this year that a lot of pop-ups have been ads for Avast products. But, bottom line: the pop-ups haven't been intrusive to me.

Summary

I have used AVG and other free antivirus programs in the past, but I like Avast the best and have been using it for a few years now.
It will not catch all malware on your PC, but it still catches many -- I use several anti-malware programs and have yet to see a single program that can catch everything.

"JUST GREAT!"

May 22, 2015  |  By o2bnpjs

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2218

Pros

Easy program to use....The Boot Time scan is the best feature of all, will save your computer every time. I hope they never take away that feature.
Best Virus Protection I have found that really works...and I have had them all...and none of them work as good as Avast!

Cons

I have not found any cons when it comes to this software.

Summary

I would and have recommended this software to anyone who wants to keep their computer clean and safe.......Keep up the good work...But what ever you do keep the Boot Time Scan.....It makes this the best Anti-Virus program out there.

"Decent free AV program but way too intrusive"

May 20, 2015  |  By ZoidbergForPresident

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2218

Pros

Lots of options

Cons

Annoying useless popups.
Built-in adverts for missing features.

Summary

As others have said too, it's a decent antivirus program but there are way too many times where it annoys you with unblockable popups.

I'd rather have a "pay 5? and be done with the ads forever" kind of deal for the free version.
