Avast compatibility with AutoCAD LT 2014
« on: February 17, 2014, 11:33:34 PM »
I had many problems with Nortons 360 while using AutoCAD LT 2010; I had to uninstall Norton to get AutoCAD to work. 

I just purchased a new laptop running Windows 7 Professional.  Will Avast cause any problems with AutoCAD LT 2014?  ...or Fire fox etc.

Thanks,

Michael

I have many clients around the US using AutoCAD with their avast! A/V with no problems. You can even globally exclude the AutoCAD directory for extreme performance.

I use AutoCAD 2014 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014 on both of my systems and I encounter no problems even without exclusions.
You may want to install the trial version before getting the full version to see if you like it.

The comprehensive version looks good for $60.00.

As an aside, how do I protect thumb drives from getting a virus?

I probably don't need any protection with regard to thumb drives since I will never share those...although, if I bring one to a print shop I could get a virus from them...hmmm...I don't have access to a plotter anymore.

I will purchase the Comprehensive version of Avast!
