“Good free anti-virus”

Written on: 17/06/2017 by 340Reeves (1 review written)

I have read most of reviews and can't agree with most of them. I had no problem with Avast, no slowing down my computer or any other problem. Protection is quite good, compared to another similar anti-virus tools. There are some features I like such as Rescue disc or testing security of home network. There is nothing so important I don't like to mention here. All in all, good free anti-virus tool. I am using version 17.4.2294… Read Full Review

“Avast has turned into a sham. If you have a problem...”

Written on: 05/05/2017 by mzDouglas323 (1 review written)

Avast has turned into a sham. If you have a problem and call for assistance they always have a story about how you don't have the correct coverage and need to pay more money. I ran the Smart Scan yesterday. This morning Avast was blocking me from the internet. They said I needed to pay more to get them to fix it. I had Avast Premier with Total Support. Nuf said. … Read Full Review

“Avast crashed my computer”

Written on: 28/02/2017

Just bought Avast and installed it. My computer started to slow down right away and started to freeze. I could not open anything then a window popped open saying the is a problem with my computer and it was shutting down. I finally got back in and uninstalled Avast and my computer was good again. Called Avast and was told they had to get into my computer to see if Avast was the cause. I said no, that I was telling them it was. They pretty much said oh well no refund. Will never pay for Avast… Read Full Review

“Faulty Service”

Written on: 19/12/2016 by tuVega279 (1 review written)

Spent money on going ahead and getting the full service. Noticed today that not only has the full service not been working, but my account had just disappeared from thin air, I found this out trying to get my account to log back in. NONE of my emails were in their system. Please, please do not waste your money on this debauchery. It's a good thought kind of system, just does not work, and Avast is going broke anyway, and I am sure, even though I asked for one. I will not be receiving and… Read Full Review

“Horrible customer service”

Written on: 11/10/2016 by AngeliqueClancy (1 review written)

False advertising. Claims free service and then charges 100.00 a month. Worst thing about them though is their customer service/support group. Spoke to a very nasty young lady who refused to give me my order number. Said she didn't like my tone and she didn't have to talk to me anymore. Would not connect me with supervisor. Whole company is a sham and I'd rather pay 1000.00 a month to a reputable company versus dealing with these people. DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Not a good product!”

Written on: 09/10/2016 by Henry329 (1 review written)

So I loaded the free anti-virus. Didn't take long to find out it wasn't free. Was having some issues so I bought the scan product. It stopped working - called customer service and they wanted $119 for just today or $179 for a full year to resolve the problem - the scan would stop mid-stream and then take me to their store. Meanwhile, once I loaded the anti-virus, I kept getting pop-ups trying to sell more services. For $119, I can go to Best Buy. Thought the service was very poor… Read Full Review

“Horrible! No customer support! Slows your computer down!”

Written on: 28/02/2016 by RoyceWelch (1 review written)

Got sucked in to buy Avast! What a mistake! No customer support, no way to reach anyone (just try and call a number if you live in Canada) There are so many hoops to jump through and get you nowhere! They make is sound like you have 24/7 support - but you don't. There is no way to talk to anyone! I was given codes to "activate" the product on 3 computers but there is no way to enter the code. Not that I would want to after using it on one computer. It slows your computer to a crawl, there… Read Full Review

“Avast updates have malware attached”

Written on: 23/02/2016 by thebadreviews (1 review written)

We have used Avast for 3 years. Avast wanted to do an update, which we allowed. When it finished the update it disabled my internet. I uninstalled Avast on my computer. When I restarted the computer I check and now I had internet available. So I ran an anti-malware program which said everything was good. So I went to reinstall Avast, but the anti-malware program would not let me...stating that the program was infected. My advice, if you have Avast don't update it. Then when the contract runs… Read Full Review

“customer service terrible”

Written on: 18/02/2016

I have just tried to cancel my Avast computer software as I was already protected . I was on the phone for 30 minutes when the person tried to sell me some tools for my computer for £80 for removing unwanted files. He was extremely unhelpful and he did not remove the Avast software which I had rang up for them to do . I would not recommend Avast to anyone… Read Full Review
