“Hold On To Your Wallet!”

Written on: 06/11/2017

The free version of AVAST! Antivirus was recommended to me by someone I trust, who is quite knowledgeable about all things "Computer." I used the free version without incident for several years, and then upgraded to a paid version for better protection. Still good; no problem. Since I don't have access to anyone who can solve problems that normally crop up on a computer, I was thrilled to find that AVAST! offered a Paid Engineering Service, so I signed up for a year, paid the fee and was… Read Full Review

“Took paypal payment when account closed ”

Written on: 09/09/2017 by treborgonzo1 (1 review written)

I had avast security for a short time then closed my account because I was given free internet security by my broadband provider - unfortunately I did not cancel my pre approved payment to avast - they have recently taken £44.99 from my paypal account - I have searched the net inorder to contact somebody at avast but the only way I can do that is pay 25$ to speak to somebody which will compound the money I have already lost - they have no contactable email address or postal address. I have… Read Full Review

“Absolutely no customer service”

Written on: 06/09/2017 by MacPhersonhf271 (1 review written)

I received an email saying my credit card needed to be updated. Since the email didn't come from avast I tried to contact avast to verify it. There is no way to update card info online, or verify the email, so I called 888-951-7679. The person who answered identified the company as "provides support for Avast". He had me download control software and then began rooting around the computer. When I told him to stop he became abusive and then removed the software and hung up. I don't like people… Read Full Review

“Do Not Use Avast Free Antivirus”

Written on: 09/07/2017 by 7744 (1 review written)

Avast Free Antivirus told me that there was a problem with the search engine on my browser (Firefox). When I clicked on the button to find out what Avast thought the problem was, it replaced my search engine (Startpage HTTPS) with Yahoo. Startpage does not keep records of your searches. Yahoo records everything and passes it along to big brother and anyone who will pay for it. After fixing the problem I then discovered that they had also eliminated my homepages and replaced them with… Read Full Review

“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
