    December 11, 2014  |

    "Best anti-virus since I started computers"

    December 11, 2014  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Catches most of the viruses known.
    Boot time scan
    I always have to uninstall Norton anti-virus from new laptops since time immemorial.

    Cons

    Nov-2014 - Keeps saying I have to "abort connection" from downloading something from windowsupdate.com. I would abort, but pops up again (as if it didn't remember I already wanted that)

    "outstanding"

    December 11, 2014  |   By chavellas

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    It detects viruses everywhere.

    Cons

    Quite rarely it falsely decides that some just downloaded files (eg paraview imaging software) are viruses and deletes them.

    "The best Antivirus you can get for free (or paid)"

    December 11, 2014  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    It has stopped many infections (esp. malicious www code) over the years. Have not gotten any infections in all the time (5 years+) of using this product.
    The UI is generally easy to use as well.

    Cons

    You have to be selective in the functionality during install, or it can lead to clutter.

    Summary

    I've used Avast for over 5 years now, and have always been satisfied by the quality and constant improvement of the product. Of course there are often prompts, promotions and hooks to upgrade, but this is only fair for such a well-made freely licensed product version.

    "Does The Job Very Well"

    December 10, 2014  |   By EscapePod

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Works fast. Has easy to adjust settings. In one Internet browsing instance, it actually gave me a warning about a known suspicious site. I had never seen that with AVSWs used prior to Avast. While I originally didn't think I'd like the update notifications for other software, I've come to like them now. They are not really too intrusive, and can be ignored easily, or chosen selectively.

    Cons

    Perhaps a few too many pop-ups.

    Summary

    Very satisfactory performance.
