"Great AV. And its free!!!"

October 24, 2008  |  By holman182

 |  Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.942

Pros

I've been using avast! for over a year now, and I love it. I've been using it as a standalone (no other kind of AV/Spyware), and I have yet to be infected. I may install SpyBot: S&D here soon, but i may not need to give avast!'s power.

Cons

No scheduled scanner...? Except you CAN schedule a boot time scan, so that's not big deal.

Summary

It doesn' t use a lot of resourses, so there isn't any slowdown in your PC, especially at startup. I would highly reccomend this, even if you already have AV software. The guys at work and myself get into arguments over which AV is better. I say avast! because its picked up on a lot that their's usually misses.

May think about buying the Professional version of avast! soon.
