"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.

"IF YOU BUY, IT WILL AUTO RENEW FOREVER at HIGHER PRICE"

January 23, 2014  |  By asaberPC

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2013

Pros

Good Anti-Virus software but the FREE version is better in the "response to threats" test according to Consumer Reports.

Cons

The FREE version is rated better in Consumer Reports in the "response to threats" category and you will NEVER and I mean NEVER get Avast to cancel the auto-renew function. I had to cancel my debit card and have a new one issued just to get this company to not renew my subscription.

Summary

Use the FREE version. It is rated slightly better than this version in Consumer Reports in the "response to threats" category and if you pay for this version, you will NEVER get Avast to cancel the Auto Renew feature.

"Should be no stars. It was like loading malware."

January 17, 2014  |  By sams1son

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2011

Pros

loved free version for years.

Cons

decided to add firewall and Password add-on, which only left my program functionality not working. I called them up and their tech support said they would fix only to begin to tell me that there were problems with my pretty new dell computer and that I should buy their tech support service. when I told them I wasn't going to spend any money, I just wanted them to remove the new programs and wanted a refund, they closed down all the windows they opened and hung up the phone. I then realized that my antivirus was totally not working, so I uninstalled it and called my credit card company and told them not to honor the charge. I hat being scammed. Tech support guy told me that they operate out of Czech Republic. So, if you buy or download their programs and need to call them to fix it, they will deny that it could be them and then try to upsell----If I didn't know what to do I would have been up the creek without a paddle for my business computer.

Summary

Avoid this software at all (or no)costs. I felt like I was dealing with crooks.

"Poor interface"

December 21, 2013  |  By FrankPizza

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2011

Pros

Under the hood improvements such as re-writing web shiled make it very responsive on low resource systems.

Cons

I wish I could stay with / choose version 7 interface. It is very difficult to find functions, the layout is not intuitive, it's a very retrograde step, that's why it gets such a low score from me; I want my Windows 7 computer to have apps in Win 7 style, not "Fisher-Price" kiddy blocks of Windows 8, like version 8 and 9 of Avast, they are awful, although v9 is slightly better than v8.

Summary

Good detection and performance but awful interface for anyone not using Windows 8.

"No Manual & No Help. Poor."

November 21, 2013  |  By mwsoft--2008

 |  Version: Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 2014.9.0.2007

Pros

Regular up-dates and good protection.

Cons

No User Manual for the 2014 avast pro antivirus. Last one on-line was for ver. 8.0 Revised procedure to get support is awful. you jump thru hoops to state your problem. No way offered to let you upload screen shots of your problem. About 1/2 the time the reply you get when you describe a problem in detail is a boilerplate "one size fits all" response. No way to exclude certain files from the scan. What they tell you doesn't work and there is no manual.

Summary

I wish they had not up-dated to the 2014 version. The previous one was a lot easier to use.
