Avast Free Antivirus offers an antivirus and anti-malware protection, along with features you're most likely to need, but would rather not think about – like one-click system checks, and unwanted toolbar removal. Avast Free Antivirus scans for security and performance issues and tells you how to fix things instantly. It protects you in real-time by analyzing unknown files before they get to you. So relax: With Avast, you’re running the most trusted antivirus out there.
This edition is FREE OF CHARGE for non-commercial & home use.
