Now i leave in Italy, but since 1994 leaved in 5 countries with different internet needs. And avast as always been there for me, and free, that is amazing in this world where almost everything you have to pay for, but still thank you that a smile, a please and a thank you and to not forget the less avast are free. that is the reasons why i do recommend avast to my friends and family in many countries.. ~ Sebastien S. from France


I've worked in the I.T industry in the past for some time. I often (personally) recommend Avast to my friends and prior 'connections' due to it's ease of use/understanding and it's efficiency. I appreciate ! Jamie M. from South Africa


Prior telling reason i want to say "I am a fan of avast...and i really loooooove it." avast has many many advantages which i admire greatly...
1- It requires less space rather than occupying huge space in the C drive
2- It provide free updates...and this is a great deal for those who can't afford to pay for the license every year to such an antivirus which can't even protect properly like Norton and others..
3- after using over 10-12 antiviruses, i noticed that its only and only avast that has a boot scan feature and none other..and for this i would give avast 11 out of 10 rating because its just unbelievably great feature.
4- and i am a fan of the way it handles opening application...that is the sandbox feature to open an application.
5- it is fast...scanning and other works can be done simultaneously...doesn't slows the system.. ~ Mubbashir M. from India


avast! Antivirus has been the only antivirus I have used on my laptop since I have owned it (the past at least 4 years. More, but the exact date eludes me). It has blocked potential threats, notified me of any anomaly, and allowed me to safely check and run programs. I removed Norton and installed avast! and have, and continue to, count on it. I have told EVERYONE about how much I love and use it, and have already recommended it to people I know, and will continue to do so. Thank you, avast! Cliff W. from USA


Avast is the best antivirus product, my sister recommended it to me when I was using another type of antivirus protection, because the one that I was using was getting me upset virus was taking over my laptop, the system run slow, was even about to crash. I change it to avast as soon as possible and I can say that I got better service. It even tell me when the scan is complete, update automatically, and block virus, hackers, and it does a lot more. AVAST ANTIVIRUS IS THE BEST PRODUCT EVER, USE IT TODAY IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE OTHER BRANDS!!!! ~ Sherica B., from Jamaica
