"May be outstanding, but screwed my system up."

September 26, 2007  |  By john3347

 |  Version: Avast Home Edition 4.7.1029

Pros

Nothing to like.

Cons

Free is even a negative when something screws up your computer like this program did. Had to disable protection to access several sites. Some of these sites are POSITIVELY safe sites. Office Live email (Hotmail) for example. Was constantly scanning something and keeping my computer bogged down. Finally uninstalled the whole program and my computer immediately returned to normal. I wanted to supplement AVG, but Avast certainly is no supplement nor substitute. Problem could have been configuration but with no help available, how was one to attempt to correct it?
