"Should Have Stayed With The Free Version."

June 25, 2015  |  By Mikey8929

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

Pros

Avast works fine and is not difficult to operate. I had the free version for many years and decided to upgrade when they offered a discount.

Cons

I started getting virus alerts when visiting sites I regularly visit and I had to make exclusions in order to visit. Started blocking updates from software I used including Microsoft. I wrote to Avast and they suggested disabling the software for the updates. That's all fine and good but by the time I get the warning the update has already been blocked. It's too late to disable it. And I shouldn't have to do that in the first place. Decent software shouldn't be blocking updates you need.

Summary

I feel like I wasted my money. I removed Avast and downloaded AVG.

"Total Disaster"

April 29, 2015  |  By billjovita

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2015 2015.10.2.2214

Pros

None Bad news - Bad news - Bad news

Cons

When I updated from the free version to the pro version, I got a blue screen and the computer locker up. After many reboots the computer would lock up in a short while. The only way the computer would run is in safe mode. The problem was fixed when the program was deleted!

Summary

Don't ever buy this program!

"Good sw but shark like attitude to license renewals"

January 11, 2015  |  By assign1234

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2015 2015.10.0.2208

Pros

>Good solid anti virus that works well.

Cons

>Obnoxious shark like attitude to license renewals.

Summary

I like the Avast anti virus solution. It works well. What I don't like is the company's attitude to license renewals. Rather than telling it was going to expire and asking me if I would like to renew I was sent an email telling me my credit card would automatically be charged unless and the sw renewed I responded. A lazy opportunistic attitude to towards the customer to say the least. I dumped them and won't be back on principle.

"It makes u use Yahoo or Bing on PAID and free version!"

June 08, 2014  |  By tetech2

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2018

Pros

It works, and rings bells when you are about to visit a suspect site. Never had a virus.

Cons

Browser scan makes you switch search engine Yahoo or Bing (useless for B to B searches) on PAID and free version if you want to get rid of any bad plugin it finds. Looking through Chrome, I can't find a voice recognition ap, plugin or add-on that it was referring to.

"Expensive unnecessary tech service disabled my computer"

May 19, 2014  |  By Gasu81

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2018

Pros

Avast antivirus software seems to work well.

Cons

If you call to upgrade or extend your subscription you will get a high pressure scare tactic sales pitch to buy their expensive computer 'tuneup/clean' which, in my case, did MUCH more harm than good. The sales person had me allow him to connect to my computer remotely. He then proceeded to show me some 'dangerous' files on my computer and told me that luckily my one year free Avast had trapped them but to totally wipe them from my computer I needed to purchase the tech service for $120 and that would fix my problem. He strongly recommended i do this. So I paid $20 to renew my Avast for one year and $120 to 'tuneup' my computer. Even though my computer had been running perfectly fine.

Summary

After updating my virus definitions and renewing my subscription the sales person connected me to the tech department for my $120 'tuneup'.

After he connected to my computer remotely I watched as the Tech 'cleaned' my computer. This entire process took a little over an hour. I watched as many files were deleted and many registry values were changed. After completing the process I had an onscreen message from the technician that they were finished and my computer was now ok to use. I closed the windows and shut my computer down. When I tried to turn my computer back on I couldn't get it to reboot. I can hear the hard drive running but it will not load windows and my monitor remains blank.

I called tech service back and told them my problem. The technician had me disconnect the power cord, wait one minute and then reconnect it and try again. I got the same result. The technician then told me it must be a hardware problem and there was nothing he could do.

I have an HP PC that I have had for about nine years. I have never had any problems whatsoever with it not starting right up or rebooting. My computer has been running perfectly and the only reason I called them was to update my virus subscription. I know that a hardware problem could occur with any computer, however in this case I am convinced that the technician deleted some file or changed some registry value that is keeping my computer from rebooting. What are the odds that after nine years the computer would just happen to not reboot for the first time ever immediately after an extensive 'tuneup' by Avast.

I talked with customer service and explained my problem. They just said it must be a hardware problem and they are not responsible. I said I wouldn't hold them responsible but I would like to at least be refunded for the service that disabled my computer. They refused and said there was nothing they would do. Now I am out a total of $140, and a computer, with no recourse possible. They didn't even offer an apology for disabling my computer and were rude on the phone. DO NOT USE AVAST TECH SERVICE!!! I feel that they are nothing more than a high pressure SCAM to get you to purchase unneeded and possibly damaging services. Could this be how they subsidize 'free' antivirus software?

"Comprehensive protection, easy to use, and good value."

March 14, 2014  |  By dejoyf

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2013

Pros

Comprehensive suite of AntiVirus, Firewall, and Maleware settings. Also scans Internet Browsers for malicious or suspicious ad-ons.
Easy to use with GUI.

Cons

Animated task-bar icon. Auto-renew a pain to cancel, but it can be done in about 5 minutes.

Summary

Comprehensive protection, easy to use, and good value for money. Includes AntiVirus, Firewall, and Maleware utilities. I tried MS Defender, and AVG first. They were easy to use but didn't protect as well as Avast. I have also used paid versions of McAfee and Norton Security Suites and they are no better than Avast but much more expensive. I bought the one-year Avast license for $19.99 and recommend this product.
