Avast vs Ad-Aware Free Antivirus?
« on: March 28, 2014, 06:14:32 PM »
Hi,

1. What are the pros & cons of the Avast Free vs Ad-Aware Free Antivirus?

2. Why does Avast Free keep sending pop up like " seasonal sales" etc?

Hoping to hear from you as always!

Thanks!

I used to use Ad-Aware together with Avast Free Antivirus before they changed Ad-Aware into it's own anti-virus program. I think it used to detect a lot of false positives.

Apologize about asking that, been a long time, since was away hope you would understand.

What about seasonal sales offers?

Thanks!
