Avast Free Antivirus

Picture 5 of 5

We’re big fans of Avast and their Avast Free Antivirus doesn’t disappoint. Quick and easy to install, simple to use, Avast Free Antivirus is one of the most popular antivirus programs available. The key features that continue to make this AV so popular are its easy user interface (UI), optimised scanning options and a continuously updated database of virus definitions. We like. So does independent IT security institute, AV Test, which gave Avast Free Antivirus top marks for protection and usability, and SE Labs gave it a “AA” rating. See, told you it was good!
