    September 9, 2014  |   By hunainahmed116

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2021

    Pros

    Its powerful , detects and kills a lot of viruses, scans for malware sites and downloads . Easy to use !

    Cons

    The interface is a bit dull looking but who cares ! When I scan my system for viruses , I catch 2 or 3 most , I wonder , how did they get there ? When Avast was to block and kill 'em

    Summary

    Go for it , the best you'll get

    "Good antivirus but a lot of features are paid."

    September 8, 2014  |   By hsoltow

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2021

    Pros

    The basic FREE package is great. Work just as well or better than MCSE, in some cases. It will block at of stuff that MCSE won't.

    Cons

    The cool stuff like "grimefighter" "sandbox" "safezone" and "firewall" all require payment or subscription. To be honest you could do all of those functions with other free or windows-included programs.

    Summary

    Recommend over MCSE, slightly.

    Pros

    Doesn't burn a lot of resources, a lot of product for free, most of the add-ons have value. Love the interface, easy to use.

    "Works Great!!"

    September 7, 2014  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2021

    Pros

    FREE!! also tried other free a/v but they interfered with my internet filter program, Avast works well with K-9.

    Cons

    Every once in a while when I am talking on Skype, the voice will tell me that the Avast has updated. I think I can turn it off but I never think of it.

    Summary

    EXCELLENT PROGRAM, has caught a few things that could have caused me no end of headaches. For that I thank you.
