    "The best I've ever used."

    August 3, 2015  |   By Maxim2066

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    I've used three different paid antivirus programs in the past. All three programs allowed me to get infected. I've used avast for about ten years now and I've never gotten an infection with this free program.

    Cons

    The occasional pop-up asking me to subscribe to the paid version can be annoying, but this is a free program and that's to be expected. Please don't use cnet's downloader to install as it puts malware on your computer. Download direct from the avast web site.

    Summary

    Take it from someone who's been around a long time, avast is the best, and only virus protection you need.

    "It Works!!!"

    August 3, 2015  |   By 100pat

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    It seems to keep nasty stuff at bay while not affecting normal running of the computer or causing problems with installation of wanted programs.
    I schedule it to run a full scan once a week at night.

    Cons

    There are some popup nags but since it is free I am prepared to put up with these!

    Summary

    "Install and forget" software that looks after itself.

    "Best Anti-Virus I've ever used"

    August 1, 2015  |   By Stupidforusingcnet

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    Regular Updates
    Has numerous scans that are extremely useful
    Does a boot up scan that catches things that the regular scan misses
    It's free
    I can schedule quick scans every day except one when Avast does a full system scan. I couldn't do that with other programs.
    Avast works seamlessly in the background and doesn't effect other running programs while it's scanning..
    Uses very little resources.

    Cons

    The network scan always comes up with passwords that haven't been changed but it doesn't tell you where they are. I know that all my passwords have been changed and are strong passwords so I have no idea where the problem is.

    Summary

    I've been using Avast for many years now. I have never had a virus on any of my systems since I started using Avast. As far as I am concerned, there is no better free Anti-Virus on the market. I have been wanting to buy a license for Avast but I've found in past, with paid versions, that they bloat out the system and use a lot of your resources. Until I'm completely sure that this won't happen, I'm going to stick with the free version.
