    "Appreciate much Avast's support!"

    April 1, 2015  |   By injunred

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    Blocks unwanted virus even w/out your knowledge. Thanks! Congrats too, for hosting the summit on web security. Avast is showing itself to be the leader and innovator in its field.

    Cons

    Hard to point, but, maybe free grime cleaners too, for, people like me who can't afford dollar-denominated fees and do not have a credit card? Am retired and my pension is not much (just being honest about it)...

    Summary

    pls. keep it up, Avast, your leadership role in internet security. Many people appreciate your help and support. More power!

    April 1, 2015  |   By Noble Ruler

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    You are the best at what you do. Its free. When I get my funding together I will definitely upgrade. Just imagine what the pay service is like! You make it possible for a poor guy trying to be a successful entrepreneur.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say at all. Thank you so much.

    Summary

    You are totally awesome. Please keep up the good work. Once more thank you so very much.

    Pros

    POP UPS ARE VERY, VERY ANNOYING, EVEN THOUGH YOU SET POP UPS TO 2 SECONDS, AVAST POP UPS STAY ON TILL YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THEM.

    "The pop-ups are too much"

    March 31, 2015  |   By jazzbrownie0

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    It seems to do a decent job of keeping my system clean.

    Cons

    The pop-ups never stop. I haven't seen this many pop-ups on my machine since the early 2000's when I was a kid who had no idea what "spyware" was or why you would need antivirus software.

    Summary

    On top of simple "upgrade to pro" offers, they also have pop-ups advertising garbage "speed up your system now" tools that would free up a whopping 568 MB of space on my 'C' drive and shut down the software for my gaming mouse and keyboard.

    "Works well.Kept comp clean so far.Runs light."

    March 30, 2015  |   By aditya.deshmukh

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    I've been using Avast for over a year now. It has kept my computer clean so far.
    Does not slow down my 5 year old Centrino running Vista Home Basic appreciably.
    I would recommend this whole heartedly.
    The free addon services are quite nice.

    Cons

    They try to upsell the addon services quite a bit. I docked half a star for that. Take that as you will. No complaints otherwise.
