Pros: Not sure it has any anymore except it is free.
Cons: 1. Over simplified thus no way of configuring it to work how you want. 2. Uses a lot of resources and slows computer down with constant scanning and updating. 3. Removes programs and files without notification. I happened to look at the logs and checked quarantine and found a bunch of files and a couple of programs sitting there. 4. A nightmare to uninstall.
Other Thoughts: Tip. If you uninstall you might find that files and processes, services are still installed and running. I tried everything to stop these services and delete files to no avail. Finally the answer was simple work in safe mode, this did the trick, everything gone including registry entries in a couple of minutes. Followed up with c cleaner and registry cleaner.
