) As it is, the only way I could show my appreciation with this software is to share an honest, sound, and "not under duress" so to speak opinion/review of this great software. I've never had any problems with malware since the program added the new anti-spyware engine to its very good anti-virus engine. With the latest version (v6), avast now has 8 real-time shields and 3 additional protection. Just set up Avast and forget about it; let it do its job quietly and effectively without bugging you all the time.
The add-ons have multiplied like wildfire as well, and no, I don't need a browser, or a firewall, just a file based protection. But my students need more, so even the extras don't bother me. for years I used to recommend it when asked without hesitation but recent developments are getting me to consider alternatives.Over the last several days, I noticed that when I click on a web site, it is taking painfully long to load. I do not recall this problem in earlier versions, but it has me considering another program.After some searching, the Avast web shield came up as a problem for many folks. I can't recommend, without a warning about this issue.If configured correctly you'd be hard pressed to find a better anti-virus program.I would and do recommend it as a first rate solution to all. Very reliable always alerting my PC when it "smells" of a "malware" visit/attack.
Tried turning off the shields but that did not help.
