Thread Name: Tech: Avast antivirus update problem
Subject: RE: Tech: Avast antivirus update problem
I'm a bit retro, so I've stuck with Norton for quite a few years. The clincher for me was when I found out that with the "Internet Security" versions the update to newer versions is usually free (although it may come through a little after the release) and a single retail purchase covers three computers for one purchase (renewable indefinitely).

The protection (with the full Internet Security package) is about a good as you can get, and with it good for 3 computers it's almost like being free.

Of course if you don't have three machines to put it on it's about like buying any of the other paid packages.

In the couple of instances when I've needed support I've found the support excellent, although just like with most support systems finding the excellent supporter is more or less an accident. Odds (of finding the right contact) have been better with Symantec than with a number of other tech products I'll refrain from naming, although it still takes more than one try sometimes.
