Windows 7: What do you think about the new avast?

27 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

If there was no MSE, Id be using avast 5. The new UI is vastly improved over the old one.

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

A great improvement on the old version, especially with the interface. It looks more like a serious product now when compared to the old media-style interface which I felt was a bit gimmicky. Performance-wise I have had no issues with either version and, being free, it is certainly good value. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

I tried it in a VM and it was better that it had a single interface but still not sure that I'd switch back to it from MSE.

Running latest ver on Win 7x64 Ultimate. I don't see anyone complaining about the speed of Avast I might have a bad load or something else. The scan speed is fine. But when I click to bring it up it takes forever and sometimes it stops responding when I am changing windows. Anyone else see this...
