avast! or AVG

by SEGMAT - 6/12/07 12:56 PM

Hey, I'm new to this forum so cut me some slack if I do something stupid! Yes, I know that this question has been asked many times in many forums but all that I can find is old and outdated reviews. I wish that someone (not just someone who tests the products for a week or so) but an actual user would post something on a forum about these two products (avast! and AVG, both free). I get the feeling from reading reviews that AVG used to be a lot worse but it has gotten better since the release of 7.5. I've also heard that avast!, has gone way down and that it isn't as good as AVG anymore. I'm curious which the best one of these two is, and since many people put links to reviewer's websites in their replies in forums, only put modern reviews in there, not ones from 2004 or something with extremely outdated versions. As everyone knows, products change with new releases and so the old reviews no longer matter. Thank-you very much, I look forward to reading your responses and continuing my time on these forums!

Matt Segstro
