My name is Paul and I love Avast since the Home Edition v4.8 (2008). I am recommending it to all my friends, but I realized they don't know how to use it. So I started this site in order to help others getting maximum from this awesome antivirus. Feel free to contact me via Facebook, comments below or this form.

    A friend of mine tried his best to convince me that his computer was heavily infected, based on the results of a two-year-old AVG with same age definitions, sigh. So I ran your FREE product, no threat detected. Would that sort out the argument, that his computer is fine? He says anti-virus programs CAN be defeated, would that be the case if booting straight off a rescue CD? Would it still be compromised by infection in the BIOS?

    This didn’t work at all for me using the free antivirus. I logged into my account. It said I had nothing connected to my account. I followed the instructions. It reinstalled the free antivirus over my existing copy. I was never given an activation key at any time. When I now login to my account. I’m now told I have one version installed (on my PC). But I still have no activation key which I can enter. Please help.
