Best of all of them5 stars by Labman24620 Aug 20, 2015 (Read all my 6 reviews)
I have tried AVG, Panda, and some other antivirus programs…all free. Avast is the best of the bunch. It can be scheduled to run whenever I want it to….usually taking about 37 minutes for a Full Scan.I have it set for 3 times a week, around 2 am. It updates when new definitions are available. I disabled the full browser scan or “lookout”, cause it slows down my Firefox and Chrome every time! I use the File System Shield, and Mail Shield. NOT using the browsing Shield….that’s what slows it down so much. I had to re-install the program the first time, unchecking the Browsing Shield.show Review details
Good..3 stars by Whyishme123622 May 24, 2015
Avast is great, especially compared to Norton. Norton injects a virus only they can get rid of, and sometimes they can’t even fix their own virus. Norton users switched to Avast, but I do recommend once you have your 30 days, switch to AVG and Malware Bytes, preferably Spybot. Avast is good for temp. use, as it’s free and it obviously misses somethings, slows down performance, etc. Be careful how you use Avast, and don’t depend on it. If you do, it can come back and bite you. Be wary.show Review details

I think Avast is the best Antivirus software. I have tried others years back and didn’t like them
