Windows 10: Latest version of Avast Antivirus
Geez if Avast free has gone to the dogs what free security is safe.
They do in fact use a third party vednor for phone support so at least it was not a fake. I fixed it myself.
I am running W10 + Defender.
What can the free version Avast do for me that Defender cannot?
hmmm.... I don't know...maybe, protect your computer?

Looks like Avira is better than Avast according to that page.
Looks like anything is better than Defender.
I know MS are working on Defender; perhaps it will jump up in the list in the future...
Interesting that in February Avast was listed first under protection, but by June they're down to 13th o_O
I am using their latest Beta of AIS and it works great,
Company apathy? Maybe Avast are becoming lazy and complacent? So others outperform then now.
I've actually changed my mind... I am sticking with MS Defender, and every few days I am running the Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner.
