[Praise] Avast!

I think Avast! is the best Anti-Virus in my opinion. It does not slow down your PC none whatsoever. When i were using version 6 i did see a little slow down, but with version 7 i do not see any slow downs at all. It feels like i am not running an Anti-Virus

I do too (on both machines), but I don't even know if it's actually done anything for me. I don't recall ever seeing a popup that something was caught. Maybe I don't visit sites that are a threat.

The same here. I have not gotten any alerts ether. I better check if there are no problems with Avast!

Go to »www.eicar.org and try to download the antivirus test file. It's not a real virus, just a code that is supposed to be recognized by a working antivirus.

I have been using it for five years. Have it on all my machines and anytime I do a repair or build for someone, I install it.

Any version newer than 7.0.1426 brings my Win7 laptop to a crawl. Update or clean install after running the removal tool.

Newer versions work well on other comps in house.

I have Avast and been liking them for the past few years or so. Really regret paying for A/Vs when I didn't have to at all.

Yep, 1995 McAfee $39 for I computer. Upgrades same price.

Then Norton OEM $20, one computer and by that time I had 3 computers.

I still have 6 avast! paid licenses but now only 4 computers. Hope to add a new one next month.
