    "Avast is amazing, a true life saver!"

    October 19, 2009  |   By crstnmsqd

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    I think avast is the most democratic, amazing and generous softwate in the net. It provides safety and protection for home users who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it. While providing protection for us it protects everyone.

    Cons

    There is nothing I dislike about avast.

    Summary

    Thanks avast!

    "Slowed My Internet Connection to a Halt"

    May 17, 2009  |   By ArmyWife25

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    I wouldn't know.

    Cons

    The scan was over two hours in, when my internet connection became so slow that I couldn't load a single page.

    Summary

    Most reviewers here seem to be highly computer literate. As a regular user, I thought I would submit my layman review anyway. More of us should, because if you're not familiar with all of the terminology used, the reviews don't help anyway.
    I have a new Dell Inspiron laptop running Vista. Maybe this only pertains to my particular situation, and could have been a fluke. However, I don't want any software that takes that long to scan my system, and all but disconnects my internet connection.

    "Great realtime, very slow scanning"

    March 19, 2009  |   By oneblackened

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    The realtime protection is good, and it's very quiet and light while not doing a scan. Good detection.

    Cons

    Slow scanning, will take a few hours to scan a multi account system.

    Summary

    I switched from Norton to Avast! after norton ran out. I really noticed a speed increase, considering that Norton bogs down a computer quite a bit. The boot time scan is quite useful when you're infected with a file that boots with the computer. I highly recommend Avast! as your AV, it works better than AVG, but I have had little experience with it.

    Updated on Mar 22, 2009

    AVG has apparently had problems with their detection lately. AVAST! is one of the oldest AV's out there. It's been around since 1988. Yet it is still one of the best there is. Strangely enough, they've not succumbed to the software bloat that Symantec/Norton and Mcafee have.

    "Great protection without slowing down PC"

    March 14, 2009  |   By Mohammad Ali

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    Great product, it really don't slow down your PC and have great protection against viruses, spywares and malwares.

    Cons

    Well nothing.

    Summary

    Because it has saved my PC from many Viruses,. spyware and malware. I was about to format my whole PC when I found this, so it even saved me from formating my PC. At the begging my PC was very slow, it even freezes at some points. when i installed the Avast it really killed all the viruses and even some hidden rootkit. I have tried my ANTI Virus Software, but no one detect these hidden rootkits which very found in system folder. So Avast has excellent protect against viruses. I really like this product.

    "Needs Some Improvment"

    February 4, 2007  |   By Reborn master

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    Avast is almost the best antivirus for homeusers.Good detection of virus, worms and trojans.Removal is very effective.Realtime protection is strong, it's good at stopping threats before they enter your pc.Updates often.

    Cons

    You have to register within 30 days.Runs high on memory.Interface is not good.It hides many options and makes it very hard to use.To many icons in taskbar.To be honest Avg is better than avast.Because it has better detection, removal and protection.

    "As good as the ones I've paid for in the past."

    February 4, 2007  |   By shucksamonga

    Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.892

    Pros

    Doesn't take up nearly as much space on my computer and it's free.

    Cons

    I can't yet tell how to start the scan manually. Instead, it just scans when the computer is not in use.
