Pros

Cat Ellis

Avast's free tool is much more than just an antivirus utility; it also offers fantastic spyware and adware detection and removal. A worthy rival to paid-for antivirus software.

Avast Free Antivirus, is a fully functioning virus scanner that's so easy to use, it's accessible even to complete novices.

The real-time protection fights viral infections through its multiple protection methods, including email monitoring, protection for exchange platforms, messenger scanners and a notification service. You can set the effectiveness of each of these methods manually, as well as the scanner's overall sensitivity, and the in-built browser cleanup tool lets you remove irritating toolbars and add-ons.

You can check files and folders for viruses manually, but the automatic boot-time scan may be more effective and we recommend setting it to run at least once a week. 

Avast expands its virus database regularly, and you'll receive alerts when your software needs updating.
