The Avast interface gives users simple to use options including, showing the summary of the current status, statistic of all of the activity of Avast.
Different scan options including the Boot-time scan which allows Avast to load before Windows and prevents any potential malware from activating and giving Avast the ability to clean any infected systems before any long term damage is done.
Real-time Shields which allows Avast Free Anti-Virus to scan in real time any files stored on the system, scan incoming mails, scan internet web sites as they load and eliminates any online threats, along with many more. This make Avast's real-time shields a core component to this software and ensures that your system maintain is safe and secure.
One additional feature I liked of this free anti-virus software is the sandbox mode which allows the software to run any potentially dangerous software and run them within Avast to determine if there is any threats to the security of your system.
As a free anti-virus program this is a first class choice. Virus definitions are constantly updated. The performance of Avast has been greatly improved over the years, with the latest version having good detection rates and having light usage on system resources.
