I've just switched from AVG to AVast click here so far I like it but the male voice announcing the updates makes me jump every time!

You can disable the sounds if you want to (sorry if you knew).

I have dumped AVG for Avast and so far, so good. I have disabled the sound so that I don't get that awful American voice announcing updates.

I have used Avast for several years and so far no problem - you just need to re-register every 12 months. It is only free for home use.

I have gone from AVG (dishard user until V8) to Avast and I think it is far superior. No problems at all.

Shame about the voice, but never mind:

Looks like everyone is moving from AVG to Avast.I have an oldish computer and tried avast before and was not impressed.Maybe more modern computers can cope better.Looks like I am in the minority.There have been some good reports about Avira Anti-virus so I may try that next .Because I am a bit low on memory I find that both those programs hog my CPU so the fault is with my computer and not with the programs.
