I'm not siding with anybody here but I will say what I think.
Avast is crap
Was a time when it wasn't, and there may come a time when it isn't but as of now imo it's tosh.
So tell me, software UI lovers, just what is it that you think makes one AV program better than another?
If I had to answer I'd guess it is the software's success rate of detecting and dealing with nasties. But there are other considerations, such as agressive installations which take over functions you wouldn't want them to and installation of 'toolbars' and proprietry software you neither want nor need.
Which is why, after years and years, I went off of Antivir.
What's that I can hear? Why, it's Sonny and Cher - And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on.....
