Posted by cotojo on July 15, 2008

Avast Anti-Virus is gaining popularity as it is free, powerful and will automatically update itself for both the definition files and the program. Once the program is set up it will run itself, monitoring in realtime and will warn you of any known incoming threats that may compromise your system.

    Sue – You’re welcome 🙂
    They had changed AVG too much, incorporating anti-rootkit and anti-spyware which were standalone programs previously, so I think they have shot themselves in the foot in doing so.
    Sandboxie is great, although it is worth the small one time payment for a lifetime license, but it keeps all malware out unless specifically recovered by the user.
    I run everything is a sandbox now and there is nothing to clean up afterwards 😆
    Have a great day my dear friend,

    Thanks Colin – the fact that not all functions were available in the free version was a bit of a worry for me too. I will check out Sandboxie too.

    Sue – AVG has been causing quite a few problems since the upgrade to V8, before that it was fine, but I no longer recommend it as many functions do not work in the free version and it is also somewhat bloated. More details Click Here.
    I have been using Avast for a while and basically it just sits there and does what it has to do, but I also use Sandboxie for surfing which cuts out all malware.
    Take care my dear friend,
    Have a great day,

    Hi Colin
    I have been having problems with the free AVG version 8 – error messages come up on both my XP and Vista machines and I am worried that I do not have full protection. Would Avast be your recommended free antivirus program now?
