    "Free version is also better than paid anti-virus apps"

    January 11, 2015  |   By mustharshid

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    - Free (if desired).
    - Full protection.
    - Detects more virus than other anti-virus software.
    - Can open unknown software in sandbox mode which is a virtual isolation.

    Cons

    - Don't know!

    Summary

    This is the best one can get, paid or unpaid.

    "Never had infection or problem with Avast account"

    January 11, 2015  |   By KM115

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Stable
    Reliable
    Easy to use
    Basic Service Free; add-ons are reasonably priced
    Avast built reputation mostly on word-of-mouth vs. mass advertising.

    Cons

    Add-on services not always clearly described, even at Avast website. It can be hard to judge what and how much these additional services add to the Avast "Universe of Protection".

    Summary

    Been using for 8-9 years on many different types of computers (including small netbooks & Nook reader) without a single successful virus attack. I never hesitate to recommend Avast whenever discussing Anti-Virus software. Hope they can maintain this extraordinary level of performance and retail customer-oriented service into the future.

    "One of the very best free antivirus software"

    January 11, 2015  |   By quarterbunny

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Avast is very user friendly for our clients, we recommend it to anyone just buying a new computer.... we have them install Avast before they use the internet. The full scans catch almost everything... and I really like the sandboxing feature for web browsing. The free version is excellent, and the paid version is worth the money.

    Cons

    You have to pay for the full version. The Updates can be a tad annoying but you have the option to schedule or manually update.

    Summary

    It just works.... and works very well.... Keeps all of my computers squeaky clean and free from bugs and malware. Just wish I didn't have to pay for the full version, maybe Avast could have a full version that flashed ad banners to cover the cost of their software?

    "This is THE BEST antivirus i have ever come across.."

    January 10, 2015  |   By Mutteppagol

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    After using this product for over 2 months i am going to give my opinion. The pros are
    * Its not a resource hungry app, the os doesn't feel slugish.
    * It has a silent/gaming mode which is very useful while playing high demanding games like farcry4 and improves the performance considerably.
    * It has a clean modern UI
    * It is FREE!!!!

    Cons

    The cons are
    * sometimes the app doesnt update automatically so sometimes we have to manually update

    Summary

    Of all the antivirus i used(including paid versions) this one is the BEST antivirus so far. Its not a resource hungry(Am looking at you norton and mcafee) and provides a simplistic UI. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone..
