Avast! Lays Claim to Being World’s Most Popular Antivirus
Only a couple of years ago, Avast! was a decent antivirus program with a control panel that I regarded as very user-unfriendly.
It took the form of some kind of weird music player, described by some as a “car radio.” You would press the “Play” button if you wanted to scan for viruses, and it always struck me as very strange and user-unfriendly.
Then in the summer of 2009, the makers of Avast! gave up on their need to be “more creative” than everybody else, abandoned the music-player look, and came out with a clean, simple control panel that was a lot like everybody else’s — except possibly even cleaner and simpler.
