"Great product!"

August 14, 2012  |  By 1975BricklinSV1

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 7.0.37264

Pros

Non cumbersome or "system slowing"
Interactive pop-ups show it's "on the job"

Cons

None encountered

Unfortunately, we all need some kind of AV to protect our systems these days and this particular product; I have found better than Norton in that Norton crippled my system interface speed with the web... this one is flawless.
