Most importantly, Avast free was obviously a joy to use and offered more than the standard suspects in the antivirus section. Avast as well boasts a feature rich user interface and an extraordinary set of functions that go a long way towards guarding your PC against malware, spyware and adware, spyware and also other online hazards. The most gratifying thing would be that the software was as pain-free to install and configure when it was to ignore. The fit is a well-oiled machine and the only complaints all of us found had been the occasional glitch or two (and a few strangely sized files) when this we did try to set it up on each of our olde skool Windows 8 box. Avast is a good decision for rookies and expert veterans the same, and we’d be happy to suggest it to anyone in the market for an helpful, no-nonsense reliability solution.
