    "Great ... until you chose to uninstall"

    August 8, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    It was free.

    Cons

    Went to uninstall prior to upgrade to Windows 10. After install, prompted for reboot and then Windows 8.1 wouldn't start up. Tried recovery to no avail. No restore points were available either. Couldn't get to safe mode either. Had to do a complete refresh that took me back to Windows 8.1. 157 updates installing.

    Run as fast as you can. Worse than viruses you are trying to protect yourself from when you decide you no longer want their services.

    Summary

    Run as fast as you can!

    "It never stops protecting you!"

    August 8, 2015  |   By Wills Chang

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    I only have the free anti-virus version yet it has blocked multiple mal-ware and virus from getting into my machine. I have not see any anti-virus software will do that without performance lost. It knows what I want and will not block things I need access needlessly like some other so call high security anti-virus software. Sure the high security Anti-Virus works but that means you cant run anything without you take the time to mess with it. AVST does it all by itself. I love it.

    Cons

    None really, I really want to have more for free...

    Summary

    Protection without using much system resources and time. Install a go do something else. The best in the industry. It's a well rounded performer.

    "My top choice in Antivirus"

    August 7, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    * It helped me clean up a nasty infection when others did not.
    * I also like the rating and cautions on websites before even going to them
    * I appreciate the pop up cautions and features
    * I have been virus free since with them now for near a year

    Cons

    Not a one. I would recommend this to anyone and have to many.
