    "The best free antivirus for people like me "poor""

    April 8, 2014  |   By HanifBaloch

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2016

    Pros

    Avast is one of the best Free Antivirus for almost all common and relatively less risky potentials or viruses, it can detect most new viruses in the net world. BUT alas it cannot i would say can never save us/all computer users from Torgans and malwares.

    Cons

    If it is free it has no cons at all because freeness of a thing is always its best point for being conless, so for me there is no cons in Avast

    Summary

    As i have said Avast is the best Free Antivirus for almost all common and relatively less risky viruses, it can detect most new/old viruses in the net world. BUT alas it cannot, i would say can never save us/all computer users from Torgans and malwares like the ones bricked by NSA or Mosad and offcourse many other bastards. It's registration can also be easier than it is.

    "3 Stars because it automatically installs Google Chrome"

    April 7, 2014  |   By anexartist1

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2016

    Pros

    Great program, I've use it for years without an issue.

    Cons

    I recently purchased a new computer and decided to continue with Avast as my primary AV program. Unfortunately Avast did not see fit to post a great big warning on the purchase agreement that it would be installing Google Chrome. GC is uninstalled now but it really frosted me that Avast felt it necessary to back-door a rather useless browser for a genuinely nefarious company. Amazingly disappointed with this shady move from what I thought was still a reputable company. I wonder how well their AV system is if they are simultaneously turning them over to the kings of spyware.

    Summary

    You are buying their services to help protect you and your data, but Avast is selling it out the back door to Google. BEWARE
