The most trustworthy online protection

I bought two programs from Avast. I bought the Avast Security and the Avast Grim( which they call the Clean Up now). I have never had so much trouble activating a license in both programs. The Avast Security program I was finally able to insert the license after much going in circles and reading all the pages that popped up. I had three different licenses for this program all with different expiration dates. I thought I was just adding time to one licensed program. All three expire within 6 months of each other. With the Grime Cleaner program now called Clean Up I have one valid license that is good until next year but no way to download the program that is obvious. To download the program one has to buy the license again. It just keeps taking you back to that page. You can see the valid license on the all licenses page but you can't do anything with it like you can with the Security program. I believe this company makes this intentionally difficult to activate the program that you bought so they can keep taking you back to the buy another year page. I saw no other way to download the program of Grime Cleaner( Clean Up). Sorry this is so long but I wanted to explain why I think this company should be avoided unless you just want to download the free antivirus which is readily available.

I have loved avast free protection for a very long time, But since updating the avast version, Avast is now nothing more to me than a greedy physical memory hog on my older PC. I am music maker but now have trouble adding to many sounds because memory is too used with crap from avast. This wont mean much to many of you but as a musician on a dying PC, Avast is now too greedy for me. Sorry to be going avast

One of best free antivirus and security software system, BUT, It's very very annoying since 2015 with it's frequent pop-ups, in a free version, that harass their users.

I uninstalled your antivirus avast, your antivir is fine in it's job but it's officialy an annoying nagware which became even more annoying and more aggressive in it's ad popups. Installing avast.. it's like installing adware which will block other adware and be the only active adware on your pc and nag you few times a day with it's offers. You're disappointing avast.

They are worthless as far as malware & viruses protection on the other hand, not only do they do on line tracking but They inject add malware & slow down your computer. DO NOT INSTALL IT.

This website is the website for a Czech computer security company called AVAST Software s.r.o. It offers several software programs for download or for purchase; they include a free antivirus, a paid-for version of that antivirus with an extra "SafeZone" feature, which is similar to Bitdefender's SafePay, a security suite which includes a firewall, and a beefed-up version of that security suite, called "Avast Premier", which includes even more features than the security suite. From a technical standpoint, this website is virus-free; in fact, it is the website of a trusted antivirus vendor.

Very good anti-virus software. Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro make a great team with it. It is bundled with Dropbox, but that's not a bad program (Dropbox is actually very useful in my opinion) and you have the option to opt out of installing it. I don't really like how Avast charges tons of money for alternative software. It seems that they push it way too often.

Good antivirus but with a LOT of annoying ads showing up all the time. You can only uncheck the "show ads" option when you have the paid version. Also includes worthless security for Android and useless VPN for iOS (not even sure that it works!)

Buy their software one time and you will be renewed forever and they will not refund your money.  You have to get a new credit card in order for them to stop billing you.
