Most importantly, Avast free was a joy to use and presented more than the usual suspects in the antivirus division. Avast likewise boasts a feature rich user interface and an impressive set of features that go a long way towards guarding your PC against malware, adware, spyware and also other online threats. The most fun thing is usually that the software was as painless to install and configure as it was to ignore. The fit is a well-oiled machine and the only complaints we found had been the occasional glitch or two (and a few oddly sized files) when we have try to set it up on the olde skool Windows 8 box. Avast is a good decision for beginners and expert veterans the same, and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone in the market for an all-in-one, no-nonsense secureness solution.
