    "Easy on CPU"

    June 21, 2014  |   By indytech413

    Version: Avast Mac Security 2015 8.0.40795

    Pros

    A quick and easy download and install. Scanned my home directory in 16 minutes. Ran a game while scanning and no performance issues at all. Browser likewise seemingly unaffected.

    Cons

    There seem to be none thus far.

    Summary

    Have used several other Mac antivirus programs and this seems like the best overall solution. I know - some Mac users think we're impervious to viruses and malware. Better to be safe - especially since there doesn't seem to be a downside - than sorry.

    "It works just fine"

    June 11, 2014  |   By muzzkata

    Version: Avast Mac Security 2015 8.0.40795

    Pros

    It has apparent protection on all your browsers and when scans finds what it has to. Free.

    Cons

    Beside a little bit slowing down my iMac I couldn't find any major issue with programm. Slow scanning time, though.

    Summary

    Even Mac are less prone on viruses, it doesn't hurt to have it on board.

    "THE BEST I've seen since 1992...even when paying 4 it"

    June 8, 2014  |   By Ronjammer

    Version: Avast Mac Security 2015 8.0.40795

    Pros

    Meets every possible NEED that I have ever noted or needed...

    It is better than I have ever had or seen in the past (22) years of computing...whether I paid for it or whether it was FREE, as this one is.

    Cons

    I haven't found any...

    Summary

    Try it for yourself...and...YOU will see for yourself...what I did and what I found in the AVAST software.

    It is 100% FREE and it STAYS FREE...even when one registers it. Please remember that when you see what I saw when it showed me it wasn't registered. I thought I had to pay for it but clicked anyway and found I got ONE YEAR FREE, when I registered this awesome software. After that...it is STILL FREE, as far as I know. WoW!!!

    I asked an I.T. friend of mine working at a local COMPUTER STORE as an I.T., which Anti-Virus and Security Software was the best. AVAST...was his answer.

    The download site showed AVAST with 2.7 million downloads. The closest other similar software contender was only 436,879 downloads. Does that not speak for itself?? I say a resounding YES!!!

    I firmly believe that you will like it, that it will meet every need your computer has or will come very close to doing that and that you will enjoy using it, as I have...IF you will only but try it...

    I wish you the very best...God bless!
