"Best free anti-virus software I've found."

October 22, 2014  |  By SJHH

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2206

Pros

Extremely thorough, runs very quietly in background and does a great job.

Cons

Not very keen on more intrusive nature of newer versions but still does the main task very well indeed.

"Great product, old AND new versions."

October 22, 2014  |  By gritchie1

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2206

Pros

I have used Avast for years without a single hiccup. It's stopped a number of "nasties," and I recommend it to all my friends and family. Thanks for a great product, Avast. :-)

Cons

None that I've come across.

Summary

Wouldn't it be nice if all downloads were as efficient and trustworthy as Avast?!

"Protects too much."

October 22, 2014  |  By fraterphoenix

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2206

Pros

None. Sorry about that. Just about all 3rd party security software is just too much for everyday use online or off.

Cons

I have recently found out that 3rd party security software is too much for the average user. Gamers and even other software can be blocked to some degree if not completely by these type software. Unless you are a spy working for the government, I see no real reason to use 3rd party security software (free or otherwise). M.S. Essentials is enough.

"Does a good job without much fuss or system resources"

October 21, 2014  |  By AussiePete

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2206

Pros

Simple to use when you get used to it the interface.
Uses little resources compared to some other virus programs.

Cons

Takes a while to find your way around the modern style settings and interface. I prefer a "classic" type user interface.
