Must agree with slackrat77. I'm in PC repair and I'd say 70% of my work is removing PUPs even when my customer has antivirus installed.

My main problem with Avast is all of the damn false positive it flags up. I've had it completely break a customer's installation of Sage accounts because it identified one of its vital files as a virus and deleted it. It also flags up one of the integral files in Java update 7 and prevents you installing it unless you disable Avast.

Personally, I don't use any anti-virus and rely on common sense. If you're ever unsure of a file, upload it to virustotal.com/ and let it scan it.

Even the best free and paid for antivirus softwares don't tackle all the crap pup's that creep onto your machine.
I spend most of my time on non hardware repairs running scans with adwcleaner, roguekiller, junkware removal tool, hitman pro, malwarebytes, spybot, decrapifier and ccleaner.

People are far too click happy and am sick of seeing pricegong, delta search, conduit search and wajam slowing down customers machines.

If there's stuff in your programs in control panel that you don't know what its for. Don't use or know know how it got there, run one or all of the above softwares!

its been out years and its always been free for pcs and android devices!

The best part of the application is Anti-Theft, which used to be called Theft Aware, which was a paid app, up until Avast bought it late last year.

It's the security elements that are additional. Very comprehensive.

My only worry is that I'll mess up the settings, and end up locking myself out of my own phone, with the 'stolen' siren blaring.

Once you have selected your license file, you will be asked by the program whether you want to paste the license information. This you can confirm with "YES" and the process is completed.

It is also possible the license file with an already installed demo version directly read. This works on the license file you saved previously. Just select the license file with a left mouse click and then press the right mouse button. Once the menu appears, move the mouse on the menu item "Open With" and select "aswChLic.." After you have made your selection, you will be asked whether you want to insert the license file and confirm this with "Yes". Now the process is closed.

This is meaningless unless you explain that these refer to the number of tests conducted over several years (on different O.S. platforms) and in a lot of cases include early (and therefore inherently immature) product releases. For example the last Kaspersky failure was in Feb 2011 whereas the Avast one was in Dec 2008 yet the summary you posted, by virtue of its selective nature, does not make any reference to the significance (or not) of the figures. As a consequence it could be construed that Kaspersky currently performs better during their testing; which it clearly did not do (i.e. 85.7% as opposed to 63.5%). Anyone wishing to delve further into Virus Bulletins 100 should look Here.
