The Avast Pro system is a program that protects your computer from viruses, malware and other infections. The Avast Pro program works in the background to make sure your computer stays protected, but you cannot guarantee anything with this program. You must read the pros and cons to decide if it is worth it to you.

The Pros Of Avast Pro

  • The Avast Pro system is a background program that scans your computer at regular times to make sure it is not infected by viruses or malware.
  • You get infection alerts every time the program finds something that it finds questionable. You get to see the results of downloading items off the Internet, and you can track your activity back to the place where the malware or virus might have come from.
  • The Avast Pro system is always running unless you turn it off. It guarantees a level of protection as long as the system is running.
  • They update their database of viruses and malware regularly. The system updates itself through your Internet connection, and you can be sure that they are adding every new virus they have learned of to the system.

The Cons Of The Avast Pro System

  • Avast is a chatty software program. When you have the volume up on your computer, you will hear the Avast Pro system announce its presence before a scan or when it finds a new virus. The voice can be quite annoying because it can come up many times per hour. This does not always happen, but it can become problematic at times.
  • The database is never going to hold information on every virus or malware program out there. The technicians at Avast do their best to keep their database current, but you can never be perfectly safe.
  • The system runs in the background. This can drain your battery if you are not careful. This is especially tough on you if you are not able to plug your computer in at certain times of the day.

The Avast Pro system is protection for your computer that works behind the scenes. The voice the program uses may be annoying, but it does provide background protection from viruses and malware.
