"Forget Norton and McAfee; I love Avast!"

October 31, 2006  |  By mindy00

 |  Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.7

Pros

This is the best virus program I've ever used. It is very non-intrusive, you don't even know it's running. It doesn't cause all the program installation errors that the Big Brands do and I can even run a video game while it's scanning in the background without the slightest trouble. This program and switching from IE to Mozilla are the best things I ever did for my PC.

Cons

Not a thing. If there could be a con, it would be that it isn't free, but I am more than willing to shell out the $$ for this program.

"best"

October 08, 2006  |  By Dustin Dittmar

 |  Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.7

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.

"What more can you ask for?"

October 08, 2006  |  By Anthony Hanna

 |  Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.7

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.
