    "Sweet as a nut :)"

    December 1, 2014  |   By armondcooperstone

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Fast, easy to use and setup. 'Silent' running when running games or when you don't want to actually hear announcements. Control 'center' easy to understand with no confusing meanings or icons. Brilliant system.

    Cons

    None that I have found.

    Summary

    Excellent anti-virus program.

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Last night i downloaded a program to put music on a mp3 player called music oasis and it almost killed my computer, started off by blocking parts of my avast antivirus. Of course i panicked but my antivirus somehow got around it and my computer was once again working fine. I truly hope it did no damage to Avast. I love this product and intend to purchase the product as soon as i have the money. Great job guys. Thanks for a super product.

    Cons

    none, except i don't have the full package yet, but soon.

    "At least one big drawback"

    November 28, 2014  |   By PeterJHB

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Appears to work effectively as protection. Can't say that I know of anything getting through to cause a problem. Updates regularly (daily or more) with new protections, albeit noisily. Installs with no issues.

    Cons

    No method for deactivating or turning off to allow a clean install of needed and sensitive professional applications - big issue, due to requests for non-existent passwords - a common problem seen in online forums.
    No method for un-installing either due to same issue.
    Extremely noisy and intrusive daily updates.
    Rather too simplified in set-up and appearance, with no useful means of selecting how it operates - but that goes for most AV utils these days too.
    No means to override default set-up or to contact support to report or resolve these issues.

    Summary

    Seems to offer good functionality in protection, as a free utility.
    Otherwise good performance is rather spoiled by the cons.
    That may not cause a problem for those who just want 'plug and play' install, but it doesn't suit those who need more flexibility and like to control their own machine.
