Perhaps you've just bought a new PC and want to lock it down from threats. Or you've downloaded a program of dubious security. Whatever your situation, within a few minutes of downloading and installing Avast Free Antivirus you'll have already completed your first scan. A top performer based on independent studies for its protection potency, Avast will quickly check for internet browser vulnerabilities, outdated apps, viruses and malware, and then show a set of advanced issues. Of course the resolution of these advanced issues is a tease; you need to upgrade to Avast Internet Security or Premium for those and many other nifty features.
The download process is a piece of cake, it delivers quickly on its promise of virus and malware detection and resolution, and offers a ton of different options to lock down your PC from every angle if you want to pay more. Some of the free version felt intrusive. Upon installation it prompts you to install the Avast Secure Browser and after checking out the Avast Passwords feature the next Chrome browsing session gave a pop-up to let Avast handle passwords. These, however, are no reasons to avoid Avast. The platform is packed with functionality in such a slick UI that you almost want the app to find flaws to keep you clicking.
Avast has all the angles covered
Avast scores points for a seamless, inviting user interface that gets straight to the point when you install it: let's scan for some viruses.
Thus it begins a a comprehensive health check that claims to leverage the world's largest threat-detection network. It's hard for a layperson to judge the effectiveness of a program like this. It scans four categories (browser, apps, viruses/malware, and advanced issues) before deeming you safe or not.
