I'm not as impressed with Avast as others obviously are.
The first major problem for me was that it blocked my OperaMail from receiving e-mail. I only noticed a few days after I installed Avast, that I hadn't recieved any e-mail for days. There was also no notification from Avast that it had blocked anything.
After much head scratching I decided to unistall Avast, no sooner had I done that then my e-mail came flooding in!
I've used Opera's ultra reliable integrated e-mail for over 5 years, and no other program has ever blocked my e-mail before.
I can't use it and can't really recommend it to others that use OperaMail.
I also hate the interface, it's so tacky and looks like it's been designed by a teenager trying to look cool and hip, but the result ends up looking more like a car stereo than a professional antivirus application.
AVG is my choice any day over Avast.
