    "What more can you ask for?"

    July 10, 2005  |   By PC Pro

    Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 4.6

    Pros

    This program is excellent if you want to protect your PC the right way. Some people complain about it slowing down there PC...maybe if your still running a 486--->Pentium 2 it will. I have never had a problem with this program. After my experience with Norton, and some of the other bigger names, this is the program that gave me 0 problems.

    Cons

    None, highly recommended

    "Good, but..."

    July 3, 2005  |   By aitchondo

    Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 4.6

    Pros

    ...yes, it did do a good job, but...

    Cons

    ...it doesn't update fast as someone wants you to believe and it is so thorough, that it misses some things and it slowed my computer by almost 80%. It slowed things down so much that some programs would stop running. Good, but needs a lot of work. Recommend it to your in-laws, but only if you don't like them very much.

    "THE BEST ANTIVIRUS"

    June 27, 2005  |   By RiseOfPhoenix75

    Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 4.6

    Pros

    This program has to be the best program out there. Especially if you are a P2P network user. One thing I found EXTREMELY useful is when using Limewire, any ZIP file that you download, Avast will scan the file and find any virus on it before you open the zip file and wind up infecting your system.

    It also recognizes viruses that many different popular Anti-virus programs do not detect.

    You can also set your own levels, and configure (using Pro edition) detection.

    It has an access scanner for Internet Sheild, and even a "Script Sheild" which blocks and scripts trying to load on your computer!

    I would highly recommend this program, especially for frustrated users of McAfee, Norton, or any other anti-virus program that just isn't doing it's "job".

    Cons

    Absolutely none.

    "Do you need themes, designs or just a tool to remove viruses?"

    May 15, 2005  |   By Dongem

    Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 4.5

    Pros

    Lately, I've seen alot of the antivirus and internet security and anonymizer industry try and provide decent services to the public. It works, yes?

    But I've never seen a company that relies and uses more talent that they may or may not have on themes for their anti-virus applications.

    For a start, you want your AV product to scan quickly or scan for a long time but be accurate. Then, you want it to be able to remove or send to a secure Quarantine or delete. Then, you want it to be secure and never be out of it's cage. AGAIN.

    The thing with Avast! is, it does more of a perspective scan and finds nothing. Still, your theme lies there with it's all flashy 'rollover' imagery and effects when you want something to be aggresive and work.

    Defently not good in my opinion.

    Cons

    - Removal is weak and unbalanced

    - More of a themed toy than an aggresive, powerful AV product

    - Over the top GUI with more themes in the database than actual viruses

    - Not even worth a 30 day trial
