Avast Antivirus

Avast Antivirus software anyone? …. Or just use it with Win 10, they can compete for your data.

No, I wouldn't recommend using Avast with 10. It has been implicated in failed upgrades. Uninstalling is troublesome, it can be very difficult to remove completely.

I guess it wants to hang on to continue gathering your data to be sold . Not what one would expect from an anti-virus vendor.

I added rolled eyes to original post to indicate I was being sarcastic.

Iíve had it on a laptop for about 3 months and only way I can enjoy using a computer is to go back to my old PC with win 7. OhÖ. and Avast isnít installed on it.

I was an Avast user for some time, long ago, what finally made me leave was: suddenly, Avast call-up would generate a "missing dll" error, even after re-install 3 times, re-configuring it 3 times, posting in their forum and never seeing that post again -- did it for me.

In all the years I used Avast over 10 years ago, I found that it slowed the Internet connection down and can and will mess up your TCP/IP stack.

Does Free Avast Antivirus Have A Firewall?
I'm just about to change from paid Avira Pro to free Avast antivirus. The Avira had a firewall, but does the free Avast have one? If not, what should I do? Am I right in thinking that my Win7 has a firewall, and if yes, is it enough to rely on this? Thanks for any advice.

Avast antivirus
I recently ran a scan with my Avast anti virus program. Several Threats found came up in the results. There we're options to delete or isolate them. I tried both but nothing happened. How do I get rid of these viruses for good? Thanks. Hal. __________________
