Avast! recommended by PC World NZ
« on: August 24, 2005, 12:48:31 AM »
Thought you all might be interested to learn that New Zealand has caught on to "our" wonderful free avast! AV prog. at last.

When I started using avast!, my friends all looked suspiciously at me and I know they didn't trust my security.  Each time I heard of a friend who's AV failed I promoted avast! Whenever someone asked for a recommendation on the PC World NZ forum  I would politely suggest they try avast! In time they saw that avast! gave good security and stopped deleting my emils! lol. Several friends now use it and more will follow now that one of our most popular magazines has endorsed it.

In a chapter called "Updating your internet security", avast! is recommended in the "free security toolbox". It says:

"Keep your system and data safe by using our FAVOURITE no-cost tools for securing your PC against internet evils.

ANTI VIRUS:
avast! 4 HomeEdition; Alwil's free app for home and non-commercial users. 8.2 MB."   And a link to where it may be d/led from!

They had AVG listed under  avast! (no others tho') but most people will go for the first one!

We may be a long way Down Under but avast! is here to stay!
Happy Days!
