    "Fantastic Software and Company!!!"

    January 12, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    I have used this software for over two years and have only had 1 major problem which they resolved in a matter of minutes... I have installed the program on OVER 27 different companies systems. And these were not just single computer setups. And to this date I have yet to be dis-satisfied! And neither have my clients and friends!

    Cons

    I really only have one complaint and that is with being able to sell this software as an add-on to my software and and services... They're not game for it!

    Summary

    This is really the only software that I can recommend to ALL of my new and old customers that I trust to answer their needs whenever I am not available to help them!

    "The one to get. Uses much less resources than AVG."

    January 12, 2015  |   By CatholicBoy1957

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Easy to use. It works as I expect it to every time without my effort.

    Cons

    I don't care for the fluff, but at least you can choose to not install it if you use the advanced install. Once it's installed, I don't know how to turn it off.

    Summary

    The one to get.

    "Only Antivirus for any platform"

    January 12, 2015  |  

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Light on resource usage, free version truly provides protection. The anti-theft works

    Cons

    The pop up on the free version asking you to buy full version.... not really a con, who wants to work for free.

    Summary

    I have been in IT for over 15 years, I have seen antivirus programs come and go. I have been using AVAST for years and I believe it to be an truly great product. I use it on my PC, my Mac, Android phone and tablets. Have not had any virus ever get through. The antitheft add on for the mobile devices truly works. If they keep the product quality this high I will never switch

    "Free version is also better than paid anti-virus apps"

    January 11, 2015  |   By mustharshid

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    - Free (if desired).
    - Full protection.
    - Detects more virus than other anti-virus software.
    - Can open unknown software in sandbox mode which is a virtual isolation.

    Cons

    - Don't know!

    Summary

    This is the best one can get, paid or unpaid.

    "Never had infection or problem with Avast account"

    January 11, 2015  |   By KM115

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Stable
    Reliable
    Easy to use
    Basic Service Free; add-ons are reasonably priced
    Avast built reputation mostly on word-of-mouth vs. mass advertising.

    Cons

    Add-on services not always clearly described, even at Avast website. It can be hard to judge what and how much these additional services add to the Avast "Universe of Protection".

    Summary

    Been using for 8-9 years on many different types of computers (including small netbooks & Nook reader) without a single successful virus attack. I never hesitate to recommend Avast whenever discussing Anti-Virus software. Hope they can maintain this extraordinary level of performance and retail customer-oriented service into the future.

    "One of the very best free antivirus software"

    January 11, 2015  |   By quarterbunny

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

    Pros

    Avast is very user friendly for our clients, we recommend it to anyone just buying a new computer.... we have them install Avast before they use the internet. The full scans catch almost everything... and I really like the sandboxing feature for web browsing. The free version is excellent, and the paid version is worth the money.

    Cons

    You have to pay for the full version. The Updates can be a tad annoying but you have the option to schedule or manually update.

    Summary

    It just works.... and works very well.... Keeps all of my computers squeaky clean and free from bugs and malware. Just wish I didn't have to pay for the full version, maybe Avast could have a full version that flashed ad banners to cover the cost of their software?

    Summary

    My immediate family and friends always get Avast on their PC's.
