"User Beware = Agreed"

October 13, 2014  |  By upsetkitty11

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 9.0 build 42301

Pros

It's free I guess.

Cons

This version will brick your Mac.

Summary

I've now acquired a pretty aluminum brick, but it no longer allows me to complete tasks. Netflix is also gone. My Mac is currently being used as a very expensive dinner tray. Looks like I'll need to wipe and install - all normal recovery options are not working.

"User Beware!"

September 04, 2014  |  By pdesantis21

 |  Version: Avast Free Antivirus 9.0 build 42301

Pros

Will crash your mac, if that is what you want.

Cons

The latest free version will absolutely crash your mac, and your computer will be stuck on the loading screen. In order to fix this issue, Google the following: "uninstall avast single user boot."

Seriously, you've all been warned.
