    "Using Avast since it came out and never looked back."

    March 5, 2015  |   By antivirus hero

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    Never ever got a virus using a properly updated version of Avast for myself or for anyone I've suggested it to that used it properly and kept it updated. And that has been thousands of people as I used to support people using HP AIO software and the Windows OS.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report.

    Summary

    I would recommend this to anyone and still recommend to friends as the only antivirus software they'll ever need. First thing I do is remove any and all other antivirus software on a pc and install Avast and that's all they'll ever need and that's all I run on my entire network.

    "Excellent Antivirus Product"

    March 4, 2015  |   By Bogdan Iacob

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    Does its job flawless. In more than 15 years (starting with Version 4) I installed it on no less than 200 computers for different people & had NO COMPLAINTS. 99% Install & Forget, beautiful for novices (1% - some default settings may be desirable to change). No resources hog.

    Cons

    Actually I see none.

    Summary

    Highly recommended & dependable.

    "Provides excellent, discreet internetsecurity for free!"

    March 4, 2015  |   By CLANCYFRANCE

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

    Pros

    Simple to use (important for we non-geeks), goes about its work quietly but (apparently) effectively. I particularly like the reassuring logo which turns in the toolbar when Avast! is functioning.

    Cons

    Increasing number of pop-ups plugging additional services - but then, my version is free, so that is the price I pay I suppose.

    Summary

    I've used Avast! Anti-virus for some years with great satisfaction. I've also recommended it/installed it for many others.
