Most importantly, Avast free was a joy to use and presented more than the standard suspects in the antivirus office. Avast also boasts a feature rich user interface and a remarkable set of features that go a long way towards protecting your PC against malware, spyware and adware, spyware and also other online threats. The most fun thing is that the software was as painless to install and configure as it was to ignore. The package is a well-oiled machine and the only complaints data room security tools we found had been the occasional glitch or two (and a few strangely sized files) when we did try to install it on our olde skool Windows main box. Avast is a good choice for rookies and seasoned veterans similarly, and we would be happy to suggest it to anyone searching for an all-in-one, no-nonsense security solution.
