I've been using Avast Free Edition for quite a few years now, and it's been rather annoying me these last few months, in particular being somewhat slow to start up and slow to scan even one small file, along with a silent mode that alternates on certain notifications (recently, it's started 'switching off' notifications on file scan results when not explicitly opened - even though previously it had been showing them with no issues even on silent mode - forcing me to open the damn thing every time I want to scan something, bringing me back to the 'slow to start up' complaint). And since then, I've also heard about privacy issues with the company and that it's been 'falling behind' a little as a brand.
I've looked into a few other options, but as always, for every good thing, there seems to be a bunch of bad as well. Does anyone here have any suggestions for other anti-virus software to try out, or at least look into?
