Avast offers awesome free services where many companies claim a charge for this. Nevertheless, it's paid service could be better as it won't expend the whole functional much.

The choice of free antiviruses is not that big. And we settled on Avast Free Antivirus - recommended it as a simple and easy-to-use program.
Antivirus has many advantages. The first is autonomy. The antivirus works by itself, it updates itself. It's easy for me to check for software updates, but this causes some problems for my parents. Therefore, such independence pleases. But if necessary, you can enable manual download. No keys and passwords are needed. The second is the quality of protection. Of course, if the virus was not caught, then you will not know if it was. But for now, it catches Avast well, blocks unwanted windows. So far, fortunately, there have been no problems with trojans and other dishonesty.
The third plus is multifunctionality. Avast will check for viruses, and the browser will clean it, and report performance problems. Although the latter is not for beginners - so you can remove it.
The only thing that is somewhat annoying is the pop-up windows in which they offer to purchase and install security programs from Avast. Or reports how many hacker attacks have been in recent times. But this happens once when you turn it on, so you can put up with it. But I did not notice any slowdown in the computer.By the way,has anyone tried Avast Driver Updater for the sake of better work of operating system? I found it here:https://thinkmobiles.com/products/35711/, but still have doubts if I really need it.

In my opinion, Avast antivirus is one of the best. I've tried it after I read the article https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-anti-spyware/. It helps to protect my computer from malware, spyware, has active and passive scanner self-protection and automatic updates. Avast cleaned the drive and managed to find every single problem.

They put a 10 day "reserve" on £74.99 on my credit card without any warning, without my permission and my card went on negative balance. For an order that I never placed with them. After numerous emails and complaints they responded "Your refund is on its way and you should receive it within 5-7 business days". 11 working days after and still not refund! They NEVER refund the money fraudulently taken! Their "30 days money back guarantee" is just a joke! I have asked my bank to block any further attempts from AVAST or Digital River and to refund the money. This review Is going to be posted on other websites as well, people need to know and stay away, including Trustpilot. They might do some legal e-commerce as well but they I understand that many others were scammed just like me.

I have been with Avast since 2015, I have just changed to new Android mobile and being able to sync across devices, talk to tech support or get a reply from their support forum is impossible.

I signed up for 3 yrs. And they keep telling me my subscription has expired. I called them 8 times since 3/4/2019 of which I purchased on the following date. I find this company wants me to keep paying for more product on pop-ups. Today when I called to find out why they keep wanting me to purchase more. Then I asked for them to stop the pop ups, they sent me instruction on how to do it that never complete. BAD company

Great free anti-virus which protected me a couple of times so far. Occasional ads but not intrusive in my opinion :)
Review by Chanindh Weeter9 months ago
I have the free Avast and get notices for updates. Another Avast sends notices and sometimes I accidentally click on the update but as soon as I do I realize my error and delete out. The past few days when I turn my computer on their notice pops up that I have so many days left to pay a bill. I am unable to check on their notice. All I can do is X out. Please stop this crap for me please. Once before they sent a notice through my bank and I lost around $60. Please help me.

Avast's first defensive layer is traditional signature-based scanning that compares files to known malware. The second layer monitors activity and code snippets to look for indications of a malware attack. Finally, anything suspicious gets sent to Avast's cloud lab for analysis, and if it is confirmed as malicious, a new malware signature is sent out to the company's 400 million users.
Security and privacy:
Avast's SafeZone secure browser, part of Free Antivirus, can keep your wallet secure by limiting add-ons while blocking ads and suspicious sites. Its Bank Mode isolates the browser from the rest of the system to thwart nosy malware.

Review by Gerardine Delisanti1 year ago
I signed up to the free Trial and when the Avast software was installed, it slowed down my PC. I eventually decided to uninstall it and my PC went back to normal. 7 days before the renewal date for the 1 year contract, I emailed I wished to cancel the auto renewal and I duly received an email confirming my request and showing the date the free trial period ended. However they took the payment without further communication, I then emailed and they are very good at delaying tactics. Their last email said they would consider a refund if they received an official letter from my bank confirming they were not dealing with this dispute! They are well aware that will never happen from a bank these days.

As the title suggest, it is the best "free" virus software out there that you can own for absolutely nothing. And yeah it is completely free, no hidden charges or anything suspicious like that. I like honest transparent companies & it would be nice if everyone operated like this.
I have since then become a premium subscriber & have renewed my license 3 times now. It's just that good. Ofc I've added on some extra features such as their VPN service which is great & works the way it's supposed to. No problems with it at all, & I find the uses for it are vast, so the price is justified. If you like privacy when on the WWW then you should consider this, but then again I also switch between this & OpenVPN, both are great for what they do.
Out of all the virus softwares out there, & believe me there are many, I feel Avast out does it's competition. Plenty of times where I've been directed to infected pages that with other programs I would've been Fk'd. & the repair to fix those problems I'd rather not fork the bill for. So I want to personally thank this company for that. It is very easy to use infact you don't really have to do anything literally, as it just does on it's own. So you can browse with ease & peace of mind knowing that your every click is covered by a robust virus killer.
I use to think the license cost was quite high, especially when you start adding on other features like a VPN & such, it can go into the hundreds literally, but I've since changed my mind. I feel that a company who tirelessly goes to work everyday to protect it user's by continually updating their software to counter present & future threats is worth supporting. You protect me I will in-turn protect you through financial means.

The website offers a nice solution for PC protection. It can help solve simple problems like PC virus check and elimination of certain types of malware. Yet the Pro version is the ultimate on functionality.

Great value and with the peace and security that Avast Antivirus gives.

se que no hacen las aplicaciones para que sean gratis, pero esta dentro de lo sencillo de lo que ofrece cumple con su cometido. lo que molesta en grado sumo son esos carteles que salen diciendo que la computadora esta por explotar y solo se salva si compras este o aquel paquete. eso es depresivo. estrategia de marketing desastrosa y repetida por años
Review by Gensler2 years ago
I paid for Avast's premium antivirus and total protection package. It stopped working on my computer. They tried to tell me my computer was the problem, which is bull$#*!, I've never had problems with any other systems. They then took $80 out of my bank account, which I never agreed to, for extra tech support (and they didn't fix the problem!) Avast is great, until you actually need them for something.

Review by TrevorFitzpatrick Derrow2 years ago
You used to be able to buy a package, and it covered everything, and now they separate everything, and then charge you for each thing, so it no longer is cost effective unless you have multiple computers. Last straw, you used to get phone version for free when you paid for everything else, and now I have to pay $6 a year (yes, I know that is minor, but by next year, they wil charge $20 a year, for sure. I have been with this company since their early days on the net, when it was free for residential customers, but are now to big for their britches, and charge far to much, and are always finding new ways of nickel and diming you. I am sad to have to put forth this update. I wrote to them that it was getting out of control, but unlike the old AVAST, they had no time to write me back. So sad to see. No way to bundle packages to save money anymore, either. I will have to start looking at different companies after 20 years with this one company. You just know there is one fat cat making a buttload of money while I now go more broke every year.
