    "awesome!"

    April 13, 2006  |   By some_one_you_dont_know

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.6

    Pros

    its better then norton... i had norton antivirus before this one and didnt even protect me from virusses... it only found them after they had entered my computer... the best protection is prevention, so i would go with avast, because it has all the active shields running that warn you BEFORE virusses are entering your computer and kill the virus immediately and after all it doesnt slow down your computer neither. I tried every antivirus program on download.com... but i was most satisfied with this one.

    Cons

    none, seriously.

    "The best antivirus program and the best support."

    April 2, 2006  |   By gswonsn

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.6

    Pros

    I don't know of another security company that updates their definitions on a daily basis. It simply works and keeps you safe. I have been using it for over 2 years now and have not had one infection even though I had an infection that Avast was able to find that my old software had allowed in. I have not ever had a problem with the program but have been told by friends that I reccomended it to that have and they have each and every one told me how impressed they were with the speed and helpfulness of support.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything to dislike about this first rate product.

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.6

    Pros

    Besides all the Home version (ITW Virus Certified, fast and small updates, fully configurable, +20 languages available) it adds scheduling and fully automated virus handling!

    Cons

    Missing Heuristic (pro-active) detection.

    Missing more spyware signatures.

    Pros

    Cons

    "****** deadly"

    March 9, 2006  |   By aaronmcadam

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.6

    Pros

    the best thing about this is that it uses no resources - you don't notice that its running; which is a big pro with XP!

    Cons

    its too stringent on downloads - would be easier if u could specify newsgroups properly
