Not being able to recommend it to a novice user and a thumbs down are two different things.
If you know how to handle the possible false positives, it can still be an effective tool.

Not from me, i still use it "as is" on all machines


Since i posted this in april  >>  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226345.msg1500400#msg1500400
I noticed a huge increase in new install and detections the following weeks ( i wrote down the number from MCShield cloud)

Since then there have been:

31 612    new MCShield installs
447 710  new MCShield detections

So MCShield is still doing a good job out there

In all may years using it i have had one (when MCShield was new) with my Garmin GPS, and fixed by dr_Bora
