“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

“avast/digitalriver”

Written on: 23/10/2015 by DrewP1 (1 review written)

free is not what it seems. I was charged for software that I don't own and when trying to recover my money I'm misled to a site that doesn't exist. I would not recommend avast to anyone. no matter what your situation. as soon the free trial version is up you'll get false warnings of infection on your computer and within a couple of days those false warning become a reality and programs start failing. All in my opinion because of no money. Avast I want my money back. That was… Read Full Review

“connected with I-YOGI”

Written on: 29/09/2015 by yukiedog2 (1 review written)

I got the free one when I had a crash and the computer person put the free one of Avast on. Within a day or so I kept getting pop ups to buy a better version, so I did. Then within a few days I could no longer get online on my computer. I called u-verse thinking that was the problem. They came out and installed all new equipment. Still could not get online on my computer but I could get online on my I-pad. And it was pulling from my u-verse wi-fi. So I should have been able to get online… Read Full Review

“Terrible terrible company”

Written on: 14/08/2015 by JazleneSerrano (1 review written)

Double billed me. After trying to contact them finally got the company on the Internet. After one month a man from Norway answered me on Internet. Told me what to do, which I did not understand but informed me could not refund money. $66.00. Then a year later I was double billed again. Tried to stop funds because I certainly didn't order from them again and by now don't even own the computer but they objected. So another $66.00 for nothing! Please save yourself from a terrible experience. Go… Read Full Review

“Slow, frustrating, hard to contact and shut down my...”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by hnHoughton213 (1 review written)

Be afraid, be very afraid. After waiting 20 min. and then spending 1 1/2 hours with their engineers and being advised the problem was with ATT uverse, and then finding there was no problem with my internet carrier I was led to believe that my NIC card was bad. Went to Best Buy to get a ethernet bypass but discovered that my AVAST antivirus had shut down my internet. I uninstalled it and my computer works fine. They won't refund my one year contract money or the money I paid to use their… Read Full Review

“Ripped off”

Written on: 10/07/2015

I have told my card company not to give them another penny. Sick of being ripped off… Read Full Review

“Terrible Service”

Written on: 19/06/2015 by isMcElroy78 (1 review written)

Avast anti-virus is nothing but a headache. I had to download new software everyday and after paying for a 1 year subscription it end after 4 months. I deleted my services and went with another anti-virus program and request Avast to stop the automatic billing on my credit card. Avast still billed my credit card and would not refund my money so I had to call my credit card company and change the card number. Avoid Avast at all cost… Read Full Review
