    "awesome level of protection along with 2 other suites"

    January 19, 2010  |   By Hankyhacker

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    it runs perfectly well without interfering with other two security antivirus suites i have installed...... it runs best when you team it up with avast internet security

    Cons

    the interface is a little difficult to understand in the starting ....... After you understand it ... its just fun to use it .....

    "It provides an excellent level of protection,"

    January 18, 2010  |   By clnsmi

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    It keeps my computer regularly scanned and updates with surprising regularity. Threat of a virus in mail and download is quickly notified and as quickly countered. The level of protection is equivalent or better than many expensive systems.

    Cons

    There are, as far as I have seen, no adverse aspects of this system.

    Summary

    The major advantage of the system, in my lazy opinion, is that iit gets on with the job without requiring user input (except, of course, for initial set-up).

    "Lots of flash with lots of holes"

    January 17, 2010  |   By Tibman1

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    Nice graphic interface. What I liked the most about avast is that you can choose specifically which scanner you would like to install. The full install comes with 6 scanners but if you never instant message or peer share, you don't need them.

    Cons

    My computer has been infected multiple times under the broken umbrella of avast.

    Summary

    Bottom line is avast failed to protect my computer from viruses. The virus that got past the sleeping guard avast attack nearly every .exe file of my program files as well as some essential system files. I nearly lost all of my personal files and was forced to reformat and reinstall windows.
    Then it happened again, with a different virus.

    If you never use the internet, then this is the program for you. Then again, why would you need a anti-virus if don't use the internet.

    "Excellent AntiVirus Protection"

    January 16, 2010  |   By rsattler

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    Keeps my systems safe. I run it on all my PC's at home and recommend it to all my friends and relatives (since they call me to fix problems when they occur). Fast and doesn't slow down your system like others - and you know who you are. Great App!

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Been using it for years.

    "is the best product i used and tested on my desktop"

    January 11, 2010  |   By djinn03

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    ït's fast and don't slow my PC. Not like others claims Avast it's really fast.
    and not only that it keeps me safe since the first time i used it. and it's 2yrs. since that.
    that why i love avast.

    Cons

    not that much still viruses can enter but i learned every thing about avast and how cure thus viruses.

    Summary

    Avast is the Product overall for me. (in my opinion is better than avira, nod32, AVG, And Others). Thanks again and again AVAST Team..

    "Avast is here to keep you safe from all threats."

    January 7, 2010  |   By DarkAngelRafael

    Version: Avast Professional Edition 4.8.1368

    Pros

    Does not slow my old 2003 PC down. Very fast and frequent updates. Constantly scans. Stops threats right on it's tracks. Highly customizable. Many features. Protects from malware & spyware. Awesome!

    Cons

    Some Trojans will disguise themselves as EXE files and cannot be deleted nor moved to chest. Boot scan and manual delete is needed in that case. I had this same problem with Avira.

    Summary

    Buy it. Worth the money. Better than Avira in my opinion. Both are great anti-virus software's but I Avast to be more safe and reliable than Avira. Can't afford Avast Professional? Get Avast Home. It's free and just as awesome!
