    "Use and recommend Avast Free version..but..."

    December 6, 2014  |   By Grandbubbaa

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    It just works. My clients are happy so I'm happy.
    It has protected me a couple of times from malicious web sites.
    Purchased version has even more protection.

    Cons

    Can get confusing when they want you to update the free version, you might accidentally select the Full version which is fine but it is just confusing the way they have the update (free) vs upgrade (cost money)option.
    Occasionally has False positives which can cause some confusion and time wasting.
    Don't like having to get the software from other sites, (Avast redirects you to download.cnet - they add junk in the download process) this has made me consider other antivirus programs to replace Avast.
    Why can't Avast host it directly? (Perhaps royalties/ad agreements?)

    Summary

    I trust this program.
    I hate having to get it from download.cnet .. I usually get it from filehippo.com
    Just watch the installation process that's when new tool bars or even google chrome may be added.

    "Very good free anti-virus."

    December 6, 2014  |   By Vamp_Brujah

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Easy to use, friendly UI. Even beginners can use without too much troubles. Updated regularly and automatically. Will block malicious infiltration attempts with good efficiency.

    Cons

    Can cause the computer to be slow at times. I found some viruses/Malware were hard to remove using Avast! (free version) but with premium version would probably have been easier. Scans can take quite a while.

    Summary

    I have been using Avast! for many years now and the software keeps getting better and better. Definitely looking forward using Premium version. I would (and I do) recommend Avast! Anti-Virus software. All in all, it is really reliable.
