Holy! WTF?
I like Avast too, but that was quite an advertisement. I come here for news.

That aside, the Boot-Time scan is my favorite part about this program: incredibly powerful.

I watched the WWE thing. Hilarious.

It's not an advertisement, it's a quick review of avast! 6 no different than many other sites do when there's a software release. We've written stuff like this many times before man.

I would like to say Thank You Dela for this thorough "review" of the new avast!. It has prompted me to switch from AVG to this.

the avast worked so well i decided to go for the paid version if not for the quality but for the integrity they offer to free users this is a great company and i would suggest paying for the software if you can,just my opinion

peace..

I have been testing this and it seems to me to work as indicated. Obtrusive things can all be turned on or off including the 'voices'. I do like the boot time scan but wish it were quicker, as it scans all drives by default and with a multi TB set up this takes several hours. It seems to use fewer resources than Avira during normal operation. So far, so good.

Appreciate it thanks, have decided to make the change from AVG free to Avast.
