Pros I tried to stop the Avast Pro autorenewal when I discovered it, Digital River and Avast make it impossible to stop the autorenewal and billed me for a year, I did not want or need. Who will do something about it Cons They bill you even when you do not want it and hide the autorenewal from you.
Summary Don't buy the pro or premier versions, you will be placed on an auto-renewal system that you cannot get out of.

Similar to most anti-virus programs, Avast automatically updates virus definitions on a regular basis, further increasing its chances of detecting constantly evolving viruses and infections. The Avast 4! Home Edition free anti-virus program is suited for those with older PCs or those with limited system resources because it only takes up under 40MB of disk space.
Upon successfully installing Avast 4! Home Edition on your machine, make sure you register the program on the manufacturer's website within the first 60 days of use. Registration is required for you to get the license key that will enable you to use the program for one year.
