One of the best antiviruses for Windows

Alan Le Bihan

Review last updated: 21/10/14

Pros
  • Versatile antivirus
  • Accessible and user friendly interface
  • Several tools and settings
  • Excellent detection of threats
  • The new Smart Scan feature
Cons
  • High memory consumption

The latest version of avast! antivirus kernel features outstanding detection abilities, together with high performance. You can expect 100% detection of In-the-Wild viruses (viruses already spreading between users) and excellent detection of Trojan horses.

The avast! engine also features outstanding unpacking support. It can scan inside the following archives: ARJ, ZIP, MIME (+ all associated formats), MAPI (Outlook pst files), DBX (Outlook Express archives), RAR, TAR, GZIP, CAB, BZIP2, ZOO, ACE, ARC, LHA/LHX, TNEF (winmail.dat), CPIO, CHM, RPM, ISO, 7ZIP and SIS. It also supports a number of executable packers (such as PKLite, Diet, UPX, ASPack, PeShield, FSG, MEW etc.).

Resident protection (the real-time protection of the operating system), is one of the most important parts of an antivirus program today. avast! features a powerful resident module that is able to detect a virus before it has any chance to infect your computer. avast! Home Edition contains resident protection of the computer file system and a resident module for e-mails and news.

Avast features a module for the protection of IM (Instant Messaging, "chat") programs, and a module for the protection of P2P (peer-to-peer) programs. The list of supported IM and P2P programs is extensive with more than 30 programs currently supported.

"The 2014 version is no good it will freeze your borswer"

I've been using Avast antivirus for over 4 years and it has been the best out there but the newest version of AVAST ( 2014 ) will freeze up your browser 5 or 6 times a day. (and I'm running a AMD 965 Quad BE with 4GB of DDR2) I'm trying to find a way to go back to the older version as it did not freeze me up. I have found forums that 1000's of people say the same thing.

if I can't go back I will switch to AVG or MSE like all the rest of the people are doing. the 2014 version is no good.

Pros
Cons
  • it freezes your browser and you have to do a restart
