    "Fully featured free version, slick interface"

    January 17, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Fully featured free version
    Regular updates to definitions
    Slick user interface

    Cons

    It's a little slow to start, my gaming rig is a beast, and Avast slows down that initial start up quite considerably.

    Summary

    It's free, fully featured and good quality. We all need antivirus, this is a no-brainer.

    "Pain in the rear"

    January 17, 2015  |   By zeartan

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Seems to be diligent

    Cons

    constant requests to choose new search engine and to set homepage, everytime! Only way to stop it is to purchase pro edition.

    Summary

    Nothing more than glorified Adware that you got it to stop anyway. Waste of time.

    "100% safe with Avast"

    January 16, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Set up couldn't be easier and once done the software takes care of itself with daily updates of virus signatures and new program versions. Excellent safety from a free product.

    Cons

    I can't think of a single con and I've been using Avast for about 10 years.

    Summary

    I've never been let down by Avast in all the years I have been using it. Thank you so much!

    "Does the job well and it's free"

    January 16, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    None so far and have been using it for a long time.

    Cons

    As previously said it does the job, it's easy to use and there is a free version while not giving you all the cover gives you more than enough to get through for the avarage user.

    "Fearmongering is Beaten with Avast"

    January 16, 2015  |   By Barrysdman

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Fast an easy to use and download. Very little to even remember about what you have to fear when you have it installed. I have only had it for a couple of months, but I see it is clearly the best product. While I am not in a position to PAY for the best product. Avast gives me a sense of value everyday I use it. I wish we had no reason for it, but I am Ignorant of the ways the world in WEB space.

    Cons

    Fearmongering is why why need be at a level to get any antivirus program and having confidence in a product comes at a cost of time. While there are many malicious programs and problems to be found in the world of computers. We as consumers are always at the mercy of programmers for true value. Many of us have very little money to combat against these Life in-balances. and so we have to learn the hard way. I wish Avast was my first choice overall. It also seems we can't trust even the people that create these protective devices. We are often held Hostage even for what seems a small amount per year with any real relief of these fears or our own mistakes.

    Summary

    It Seems the fear of Getting a Virus is so great that people are pushed in many directions. Avast seems a very well balanced program. I began a few months ago when I had trouble with AVG. Avast was my first go to and now I know why. I manage 3 PCs and 8 laptops and 2 phones. All because I have too. The brain in the Family suffered a stroke, so I am learning the hardest way I could. Avast has removed all my fears and I will eventually have it on all of these machines.
    Thank You Avast
