Avast Antivirus

After being failed by MSE, and Avira I decided to try Avast Free Antivirus and I think I have finally found the perfect solution. I like the fact that it comes pre-configured out of the box. I didn’t have to go through any settings. It auto-updates daily and even lets you know via audible alert that it has been updated. I especially like the fact that it automatically blocks viruses and infected pages in real time. This is where the other Antivirus suites had failed me.

Doesn’t Consume very many resources unlike alternatives
Very high protection in real time which I think is the most important
Doesn’t get in my way or annoy me asking me questions constantly
High results from AV Comparatives and the #2 download on download.com
Option to perform Boot time Scan which scans your computer before the viruses can load and hide
Ability to set exclusion paths. When you have programs/files you want to exlcude from being detected

Comes with a vast array of Real-Time Shields

File System – Scans while opening/writing
Mail- Scans incoming/outgoing emails
Web – Scans your web traffic for viruses and bad sites
P2P – Scans files downloaded from File sharing programs automatically
IMĀ  – Scans files recieved via instant messaging programs
Network- Prevents viruses that try to reach your computer via the network
BehaviorĀ  – Looks for unusual behaivor
