Avast Anti-Virus Software

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any experience with Avast anti-virus software? I heard about it months ago (it's FREE), but didn't download it and install it until today. For the past 5 years, I've been using Norton Anti-Virus (NAV), but in the past 3 months, I've had to re-install it 3 times due to program error. NAV's message error recommended I re-install it.

Anyway, my computer runs VERY slow on NAV and it tends to run out of memory (I keep getting that message). So, I decided maybe it's time change or try new software. Today, I installed Avast. WOW!! My computer is now very responsive and it's not freezing up!! I can tolerate my 800 MHz computer so much better!!! I just hope the virus protection is good. I had read reviews and it's supposed to be pretty good.

Just curious if anyone else has used it and to get user opinions.

I've used in in the past and loved it.
It really was a godsend for my older (now deceased) machine.
Kept it running fast and like new, long after it should have died of natural causes.

We use it on all our PCs. (How many, you ask? Don't. Ask, that is.) It's great!

I've tried Avast, but just very quickly and not enough to be able to recommend it or criticize it. I used to use AVG because it was free.
