Avast! Free Antivirus For Windows (32/64 bit)
Avast is among the most popular anti-virus software in the world at present. As a testament to its capabilities, the antivirus is currently registered to more than 130 million users around the world.
In January 2010, the company released the current title Avast! Free, replacing the previous Avast! Home which was free for home use. Although it has limitations compared to the paid version, it does all the essential tasks of an antivirus tool. It is also up-to-date, with the software regularly updating itself as well as its virus definitions.
Installing the 50mb installer files is a breeze. You will be given the option to participate in their community feedback service where the software sends some of your computer information to Avast to further help the company in improving the antivirus but you can choose to uncheck it if you wish not to participate.
The installation was very fast and unlike other antivirus software, it does not require you to restart your computer after installing. Another great thing about the installer is how it is not bundled with other programs which are common in many freeware.
Avast! Free Antivirus shares the same GUI as the paid version. It is rather large for an antivirus but is nevertheless user-friendly, pleasing to the eyes, and very easy to navigate in. Even novice computer users will not have any problem navigating through the interface.DOWNLOAD NOWTechnical information
