  1. Used to be good before it became a virus. I am going through hell to uninstall it. These ass holes intentionally make it hard. Do not download this trash software.

  2. Avast is malware, Vice , Bleeping Computer and ExtremeTech investigated THE FACT they spy on every click you browse. They own AVG and CCLEANER, both are also malware! Do not believe me? LOOK IT UP, IT IS TRUE!

  3. DANGER , DANGER , DANGER ;  AVAST IS A VIRUS OR WORM  TO SCAM , DON'T BE TRAPPED.
    UNINSTALLING , AVAST CLEAR , DELETING FILES  DID NOT HELP ME.I HAVE LOST MY COMPUTER  AND  IMPORTANT FILES. PLEASE DON'T BE TRAPPED BY THIS MULWARE.

  4. I INSTALLED THE AVAST FREE TRIAL AND NOW I CAN HARDLY DO ANYTHING ON MY PC AND VLC IS GD WORSE THEN EVER!!! CANT DO THIS MUCH LONGER I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT HOW TO FIX A PC AND I HAV NO CASH TO FIX IT, ITS 20 PLUS YEARS OLD AND ALSO I THINK I MAY HAVE A BACKDOOR HACKER BUT I DONT FRIGGIN KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT THAT FORSURE NETHER 🙁

  5. Lots of nagware, (and frightware, for the novice) I don't like it. After I uninstalled it I found a sneaky thing called overseer or something similar running in services ….

  6. i hate avast it is always runing in the back ground and i cant stop that and whan i try to stop it from windows task manager it say access denied and if i try to delete it it say the app is runing so i cant delete it and it doesn't show up in the settings so i cant delete it from there and whan i turn off the real time protection it steal 70%+ from my hard and when i turn it on it still take 70%+ from my hdd power and my hdd is slow so i had some problems playing ac origins and in the end of the day avast is the worst ante version i ever use in my live

  7. I was told, "Avast is a virus. That's right folks, turns out the wool has been over our eyes the whole time. The biggest virus out there is Avast. Everynight, on all the computers I have avast installed on, I get a virus alert or two from arbitrary files." is this true?
