    "The Best For Less!"

    March 11, 2012  |   By odohvare

    Version: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1426

    Pros

    The same features of the big dogs, with a much lighter price tag.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything yet, and been using it for 2 years.

    Summary

    You won't find a better suite of security and protection applications with the same list of features for anywhere close to the price. In my opinion, this is the best you can get. I've been using it for 2 years, and plan to stay with it for a long time to come!

    "Best net security software i have ever used!!!!!!!"

    March 11, 2012  |   By im-new

    Version: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1426

    Pros

    The Sandbox and Safezone features are just a few of the interesting things in this software that attracted me... I also like the Remote Assistance that comes with it. Cloud storage is also handy.

    Cons

    the only thing that comes to mind with cons right now would be the price of the full version. its not very expensive but.... you still gotta pay.

    Summary

    Just THE best anti-virus i have found

    "incompatible with fan speed/temp. monitoring software"

    March 10, 2012  |   By fingusername

    Version: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1426

    Pros

    not too slow
    seems to work (no infections since owned = 2 weeks)
    free

    Cons

    My Avast use started with several false positive alerts. One was a file shield alert and automatic sandboxing of my motherboard's temp. and fan speed monitoring file, Abit uGuru. After sandboxing, the file was auto-modified and no longer exists. This is a significant loss, as my northbridge fan often needs attention. A Google search showed that this has happened to another user and that Avast also is incompatible with the fan speed monitoring freeware "SpeedFan" (see the CNET user reviews on SpeedFan).

    The Iyogi tech. support is not worth much. I had to listen to their sales pitch about purchasing additional unrelated services from them before they would admit they could not fix my problem.

    Summary

    A significant incompatibility problem and useless tech. support makes free a relative term. There are other free, well rated internet security software programs available.

    Updated on Mar 10, 2012

    Avast Internet Security is free to try. I will not be buying it.

    "Stellar Performer! A Must for Robust Internet Users!!!"

    March 8, 2012  |   By hellosomen

    Version: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1426

    Pros

    I have been using AVAST PRO for over 10 months now and really had no issues with attacks. There were lot of them for sure but my PC was safe. I spend over 12 hours a day on the web and my PC is really prone to all kinds of threats. Actually I am using AVAST for the last 6 years now. It was the FREE version. Only last year I switched over to the PRO version, just to convey my gratitude to the team who are really doing a wonderful job!

    Cons

    Nothing really is negative about this antivirus. Oh yes! at times it even plays around with genuine applications and blocks them, till you realize and adjust your PC settings. But again, that is what it is meant to do!

    Summary

    AVAST AMUST for all PCs!!!

    "perfect for novices"

    March 8, 2012  |   By ChristineWe

    Version: Avast Internet Security 7.0.1426

    Pros

    I am a complete novice at computer security and have no true idea of how to go about protecting myself. I use AVAST because all the work is done for me. I do not have to do anything--I am even reminded when updates need to be made. And, if at some point in the future I become more savvy there are plenty of advanced tools I can use. I will continue to pay for my AVAST though I can get it free simply because it is an excellent product.

    Cons

    Not a single one!
