and many prefer it to AVG.
It uses a few less resources than AVG and offers a few more protections than AVG.
Since it too offers a free for home use version why not download it and give it a try?
One more nice thing about Avast is that it updates definitions a lot more often than AVG and is less problem prone when doing so.
Anyone on this board happen to use an A/V program called AVAST and is it any good, user friendly for a non-Geek like me? I have been using AVG's free A/V and their A/S for about 2 years but might be making a change soon. Someone posted in another thread I started after I received an email this morning informing me that AVG had introduced a new version of their A/V, version 8.0 and to download it. Naturally I came here first to ask questions about it.
Someone suggested I might want to make a change to something else later on rather than download the new AVG free A/V 8.0 and that I should take a look at AVAST for future A/V protection and to switch to Super Antispyware for future A/S protection. I learned today that AVG will soon stop providing updates for both of the free products I currently have on my computer and that I would need to switch to the new AVG A/V 8.0. Anyone use either AVAST or Super Antispyware on their computers?
