    "THE BEST I've seen since 1992...even when paying 4 it"

    June 8, 2014  |   By Ronjammer

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 8.0.40795

    Pros

    Meets every possible NEED that I have ever noted or needed...

    It is better than I have ever had or seen in the past (22) years of computing...whether I paid for it or whether it was FREE, as this one is.

    Cons

    I haven't found any...

    Summary

    Try it for yourself...and...YOU will see for yourself...what I did and what I found in the AVAST software.

    It is 100% FREE and it STAYS FREE...even when one registers it. Please remember that when you see what I saw when it showed me it wasn't registered. I thought I had to pay for it but clicked anyway and found I got ONE YEAR FREE, when I registered this awesome software. After that...it is STILL FREE, as far as I know. WoW!!!

    I asked an I.T. friend of mine working at a local COMPUTER STORE as an I.T., which Anti-Virus and Security Software was the best. AVAST...was his answer.

    The download site showed AVAST with 2.7 million downloads. The closest other similar software contender was only 436,879 downloads. Does that not speak for itself?? I say a resounding YES!!!

    I firmly believe that you will like it, that it will meet every need your computer has or will come very close to doing that and that you will enjoy using it, as I have...IF you will only but try it...

    I wish you the very best...God bless!

    "Awesome for the iMac"

    June 4, 2014  |   By tridgida

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 8.0.40795

    Pros

    It scans and prevents anything from even entering the computer.

    Cons

    It's not so easy to figure out how to download and from where when you do the initial search on google.

    Summary

    No matter what you need to do to download, DOWNLOAD IT NOW!

    "Strong, Silent Sentinel"

    June 2, 2014  |   By Kongshi

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 8.0.40795

    Pros

    Very highly recommended, easy to install, and intuitive function display. Provides real time security and notifies operator of all malware, spyware, threats, infections that target the system.

    Cons

    Very long initial scan time of HD, but worth it based on the number of threats that were identified.

    Summary

    I would highly recommend installation. Appears to be very pro-active.

    "Very good, safe--I know it's there..."

    May 30, 2014  |   By djcthings

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 8.0.40795

    Pros

    I have had Avast! for several months and have been alerted to many malware issues and unsafe websites... Even found some infection in OLD mail and was able to clean those up as well as the alerts. Runs in background quietly; I am glad I decided to install Avast! Try it, U will NOT be sorry...

    Cons

    I have no cons to report at this time...

    Pros

    Easy to install
    Very easy to setup custom scans
    watches both web and email

    Cons

    Doesn't tell the name of virus when it is found and put in the quarantine folder.

    "Love it never fails me to be honest and its free"

    May 26, 2014  |   By dwnsth123

    Version: Avast Free Antivirus 8.0.40795

    Pros

    When your 30 day of free use is up delete the application completely and the just download again ....I recommend Ccleaner its free also on Cnet, along with Avast or AVG your choice, and Spybot Search and Destroy. Any other opinions or exellent programs that are free let me know please ... Never ever use Mcafee or Nortons... They will ruin your computer...

    Cons

    Im cool with it all !!!!

    Summary

    All free on Cnet

    1. Avast
    2. Spybot Search and destroy
    3. Ccleaner

    This cocktail always works for me.
