"Best all-around Internet Security"

April 24, 2015

 |  Version: Avast Internet Security 2015 2015.10.2.2214

Pros

- lightweight, beautiful interface and user friendly. Even my father in law can use it (zero tech skills)
- able to scan your home network and browser, in addition to system scan.
- fast full-system scan
- custom settings
- power in numbers (Avast has the most users by far) which leads to better algorithms for catching threats.
- great price $29.99 for 3 computers.

Cons

- None so far

Summary

Avast has been around for over 27 years, very reputable company. For those having issues with pop-ups GO INTO SETTINGS> CHECK 'SILENT/GAMING MODE'. Its as easy as that. For free software you will deal with ads etc..I've been using the free version for years, but decided to upgrade to the paid version. Support the software developers, they are doing good work! I got a good price too by clicking the store tab on left side. I have tested Bitdefender, AVG, and many others, and AVAST has the best interface by far, and best security features!

"Avast 2015 - Now with Spammy Popup Ads!"

March 25, 2015  |  By LamendolaM

 |  Version: Avast Internet Security 2015 2015.10.2.2214

Pros

Works in the background to protect me against viruses, like it always has.

Cons

All of a sudden, I am getting popup ads begging me to upgrade to a premium tier. I have been using Avast for free for a long time... popup ads are not going to make me upgrade. They will make me jump ship to a free, less annoying product.

"Used to be good - Now full of Pop Up Ads"

March 11, 2015  |  By solharris

 |  Version: Avast Internet Security 2015 2015.10.2.2214

Pros

Reliable for finding viruses

Cons

1) Full of pop up ads to buy their products
2) Too many ads popping up all the time
3) Invasive pop ups annoying and unwanted
4) Avast reputation taking a hit due to so many pop ups
5) Will this be the end of Avast ???

Summary

Used to be good. Now there are better alternatives out there without annoying ads.

I'm switching 300 + clients to Kaspersky as a result of Avast's direction change and their insistence on so many pop ups.....

My advice to consumers is to look elsewhere until (if) Avast reverse this silly policy.
