Title: A Simple Anti-Virus?
Post by: CeyarrecksII on February 15, 2018, 06:51:35 PM
I am not looking for anything that "washes my cookies" nor "walks my pet" not even one that "empties the trash liner."
I do not want an Anti-Virus program to wax and shine my leather shoes.

I seek a program that performs ONE function; Anti-Virus.
Not one that is so severely bloated as to put a noticeable strain on the PC's operation as newer versions do.
Not one that is attempting to justify its existence in a diminishing industry by offering the above and other "services" I did not ask for.

Since contacting Avast directly is seemingly by design proving impossible, I come here.

Please direct me to where I may receive from Avast the "registration" code that the [LIGHT WEIGHT], [ANTI-VIRUS-ONLY] version seven(7) of Avast may be obtained.

The great thing about Avast is when you choose the "Custom" install you can choose as much, or as little protection you want by choosing which protection modules you wish to install.
The more modules installed the more the software will do. :)

If you've already used the default installation and want to remove some items,
this should help https://youtu.be/f6HscAZTKrg (https://youtu.be/f6HscAZTKrg)
