Well, Avast will soon have put an end to that problem, when it finishes cannibalizing AVG and shuts it down after having bought it out!recently, AVG free has been doing better than Avast free in testing.
but if you will use hardened mode (choose hardened/aggressive), then go with Avast.
In recent years Qihoo 360 and Panda free have done heroically vis-`a-vis many paid AVs in testing, and Avast free has also done well at times. It seems to me that Avira and AVG are generally tested in their paid suite versions, but their frequent good results could speak well for the free versions.Are Free antivirus software good ?
Everyone does that these day's.
Chrome users are notified before an extension is enabled, when installed by a third party program. The hamburger (or MD 3 dots) menu will be orange when there is an issue with the browser that needs attention.I installed & uninstalled Avast.
I liked Avast & liked Hardened Mode Aggressive...good protection.
I uninstalled as had bad experience of Avast installing extensions without user input And more importantly I didn't installed extension with custom install But a day later Avast installed Online Shield And a day after Avast installed Safe Price.
Hope you dont experience the same otherwise Avast is good protection & Hardened Mode Aggressive increases protection without much prob for users.
I dont like the ads too...thats your personal preference.
