"I Miss Version 4.8"
-Low RAM & CPU usage
The configuration settings (expert settings) are a NIGHTMARE.
In order to get maximum protection, you'd need to fiddle with all the settings. And believe me, once I opened these settings up, I REALLY missed v4.8. I've honestly never seen so many frustating settings in my life. I personally didn't even bother to try and set them all. I just unistalled.
However, I'd recommend avast! to anyone who is at least an intermediate user... One who enjoys fooling with a massive amount of settings. It is a truly great A.V. when it fully configured.
For those who want something simple or are amateurs, stay FAR away from this program. I'm considered close to an "expert" when it comes to using computers (and fixing them), and I'm also a simple guy who enjoys simple things. Let me tell you, this program is far from simple.
