    "Avast Free Antivirus"

    August 12, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    Avast is without a doubt the best FREE antivirus software. It prevented me from downloading malware, adware, viruses, or anything else! It's nice to know that Avast scans each file you download, and web shield can tell you which websites are good. In all, a fabulous product

    Cons

    I deeply regret I cannot buy the premium version (If free is this good, what is premium like?)

    Summary

    Amazing! http://www.avast.com

    "AVAST Free - Great Product - Very Confusing Renewal"

    August 11, 2015  |   By RootCause1

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    Free Version - Protected me from Many Viruses. Great Product, they provide regular updates and do a great Job keeping me from getting viruses. Updates are frequent and I am grateful for that.

    Cons

    Free Renewal is deceptive when using the Free Version. They tricked my Dad into purchasing the upgrade. The free version is a great product but when it comes to renewal it is difficult to navigate. This last update you had no option to opt out of the upgrade unless you clicked the X at the top of the window. It only had the upgrade now option. So if you don't click the X and click to upgrade your stuck even if you uninstall the upgraded product. It won't let you install the Free Version unless you delete the registry entries which the average consumer will not know how to do.

    Summary

    Free Version is a great product. The only issue is they try to force you into paying for an upgraded product by tricking you. Truth is it is probably worth paying for but the Trickery is so deceptive ( if this doesn't improve) I will stop recommending this product to others. Great Product but if your going to offer a free version then make it easy to continue to use it free. If they stop the deceptive actions I will and would recommend purchasing this anti-virus product. If they don't then I will be looking for a new Anti-Virus Product.

    August 10, 2015  |   By KMartin186282

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.3.2225

    Pros

    Haven't had any infections so far. Has warned me of several threats before they happened. Recommended.

    Cons

    The nag popups are kind of annoying...specifically the one about the Grime Fighter which does not work with the free version anyway.

    Summary

    On my next computer I'm going to pay for their software.
