“The one flaw”

Written on: 09/06/2019 by bricespears (1 review written)

Overall I have a high opinion of AVAST. The one flaw is the NON-STOP popups telling me my PC is running slow. I am quite literate when it comes to PCs. One simple example to check pgms in the startup category. But I wish AVAST would stop telling me EVERY DAY… Read Full Review

“DONT INSTALL”

Written on: 30/05/2019 by 34Pollard (1 review written)

It will slow down your computer (a lot!), and it is annoying to uninstall (you have to download another program to uninstall). Once you uninstall it, it will slow down your computer for no reason and mess up your other programs. 100% regret… Read Full Review

“Don't use this pile of garbage.”

Written on: 21/05/2019 by Cailynd109 (1 review written)

Do not trust or pay this company, they are overpriced and ineffective. Furthermore, any company (Avast) needing to sneakily install their software attached to legitimate applications, should not be trusted. There are many other anti-virus packages out there. You all would be better suited to choosing a cheaper more reputable company. STAY AWAY from this company, they are not worth the waste of time, money and lack of security… Read Full Review

“Laughable”

Written on: 13/02/2019 by Bentley181 (1 review written)

I use Avast free anti virus. It's forever coming up with amusing security violation messages to tempt me to buy the full version. The latest one said that anyone could easily see my location at Salisbury - only about 200 miles out - I'm in Sheringham, Norfolk. Loved to have seen what the other 3 were but it wouldn't show me. Otherwise it seems to function OK… Read Full Review

“Useless until they remove bugs they didn't care they...”

Written on: 06/09/2018 by villandra (1 review written)

Avast used to be a modestly good antivirus, would help stop viruses from downloading, defective web sites from loading, together with Malwarebytes that I would never be without. I had the security version - don't have the title to look at since it's no longer on my computer, obviously, because my computer is working and I can surf the Internet. The advertising is defective. You get to use a license with three devices - but one of them can't be your cell phone, you need to purchase a separate… Read Full Review

“Never safe with Avast”

Written on: 15/06/2018 by Karin70 (1 review written)

I just upgraded from a free Avast antivirus software to a paid version. After installing the paid version I kept getting messages I was still not safe and need to add additional coverage to protect my computer. I feel like they are nickle and diming their customers every step of the way. How do you sell an antivirus program that comes in multiple parts to ensure safety while browsing? I called customer service to ask what it would take to be safe and their explanation made no sense at all… Read Full Review

“Charges. Discourteous.”

Written on: 16/05/2018 by Goodeil205 (1 review written)

I called the no. I was rudely treated. I was told that I was talking to sales. I said all I needed to know was does Avast work with Windows Vista. She said she would transfer me to tech support and that I would have to pay to speak with them. I told her no I don't want to pay to ask that simple question. Your windows-vista-antivirus states that it does work with Windows Vista and I am having trouble installing it on my computer. She insisted that I had to pay to find out!! If AVAST states in… Read Full Review

“Would you pay $100 to get back $86.33?”

Written on: 18/01/2018 by Eyeofthetiger (1 review written)

I agreed to a "60 day free trial of Avast Antivirus." At first I was very pleased with the product but decided to go to someone local because I needed to get my backspace key to not stick. I decided to use the local company and asked them to remove the Avast and purchased their required anti-virus. Then I tried to cancel the 60 day free trial but was unable to find a phone number anywhere!! I got one from my reputable computer company, but the person said it probably wouldn't count. Then my… Read Full Review

“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
