Benefits of Pro antivirus vs free edition?
« on: July 07, 2012, 04:08:34 PM »
I first used (purchased) Avast! 3-4 years ago because they had a version for Windows Home Server at that time.  Since then I have used on my PC's and several friends/family members also (a mix of Pro and free versions).  I have been overall satisfied with it.
My questions is this:  Is there really an advantage of using the paid Pro version vs the free version?  My 3 pc Pro version expires in a couple of weeks, and I was searching for best rated antivirus products.  I read a quote from Avast that said their free version uses the same "engine" or similar wording as their premium products.  Any opinions?
