I don't know if this is relatively old news?Avast's community forum was hacked? click here it's been quite a task to find the most up to date version of Avast.Filehippo haven't updated it for months and I personally wouldn't go near Cnet after a bad experience.
Is there still a lot here who use Avast?
I'm curious jst how better(if at all)Avast performs than that of MSE,Avira,AVG etc?
Any opinions on what the best free anti virus program is are bound to be differing but would be interseting to hear?
For all the 'major' stuff, such as security software, I'd always go to www.ninite.com. You're guaranteed an infection-free, latest version of the software, plus it self-installs and automagically says 'no' to all the crap you don't want. Worth a look.
Very happy Avast user here, btw. Left AVG a couple of years back because it was getting silly and, as Fruit Bat meant to say, even MS admit MSE doesn't compare well with other offerings.
I've just started to use 360 Internet security only been running it for a week but so far so good and I like the fact that I can run the browser and e-mail client sandboxed, nice additional cover on an oldish XP laptop.
Thanks for the opinions folks.
I too have been using Avast for quite a few years now and I'm happy with it.I just wanted to see what other users preferred.
I used to use Avira but was getting quite a lot of blue screen crashes and have been fine since switching to Avast.(Fingers crossed)
