Avast Antivirus is a family of cross-platform internet security applications developed by Avast for Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android and iOS.

Avast Antivirus



One of the most significant advantages of using a premium antivirus is that it offers better protection than free antivirus programs. This is because they are able to detect and eliminate more viruses, malware, and other digital security threats before they cause any damage. On the other hand, free antivirus programs do not have access to as many virus definitions, making them less effective at keeping your computer safe.\nAnother reason to choose a premium antivirus is that it is more user-friendly than many free programs. A good paid antivirus will be easy to set up and configure while also being simple and intuitive to use.","author":"@type":"Person","name":"Craig McCart","description":"Craig McCart is a content writer and copywriter with 10+ years of experience working in cybersecurity in a corporate VPN environment.

Symantec acquired LifeLock identity protection in 2017, which led to its name change of NortonLifeLock. In December 2020, it announced the acquisition of Avira antivirus, and in August 2021, it announced that it would acquire Avast, which itself acquired AVG a few years prior.


Avast has a simple pricing structure, offering a free basic antivirus and then Avast Premium Security for one or 10 devices. In the US, Avast launched a new product called Avast Omni. This product is designed as a total solution that protects all IoT devices.


I also ran a second malware test where I downloaded harmless sample malware files from EICAR (the European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research) which simulate malware attacks and allow us to see how antiviruses respond to different types of threats coming from different vectors. I turned off real-time detection and ran a full system scan and a quick scan to see how well the malware was detected and quarantined.


To add to my own tests, I checked out some of the most recent antivirus tests managed by the major independent antivirus test labs. The table below compares the test results from both Norton and Avast on my PC when tested with three different live samples and four EICAR samples.


How much impact an antivirus has on PC performance is an area I like to look at, and is something most users should be aware of. To find out which of the two antivirus programs had the best performance numbers, I captured some data while running both a full scan and a quick scan. To help me verify my findings I also looked at the performance scores for both Avast and Norton from some recent independent tests.


The time it takes to complete an antivirus scan is affected by a number of factors such as the speed of the PC, the number of files that need to be scanned and the antivirus program that you are using.


It was a simple case of entering a few personal details like my name and address and setting up payment. Next, I got the download link to the installer file. Installing the program on my PC was easy. Less than 10 minutes after first launching the website to sign up, I was underway running the full antivirus check on my PC.


One of the most significant advantages of using a premium antivirus is that it offers better protection than free antivirus programs. This is because they are able to detect and eliminate more viruses, malware, and other digital security threats before they cause any damage. On the other hand, free antivirus programs do not have access to as many virus definitions, making them less effective at keeping your computer safe.


Another reason to choose a premium antivirus is that it is more user-friendly than many free programs. A good paid antivirus will be easy to set up and configure while also being simple and intuitive to use.


VPNs, or virtual private networks, are another important tool to secure your computer and data. They encrypt all of the data sent from your device so that hackers or other malicious users cannot intercept it. Many paid antivirus programs will also include a VPN as part of their subscription, but if you want additional protection, you may choose to use a separate VPN provider.


Lehigh has begun transitioning to a new cloud-based antivirus program called CrowdStrike Falcon Sensor. All new Windows desktops will receive CrowdStrike, while systems still running Avast Antivirus will be gradually migrated.


Avast was founded in 1988 in Czechoslovakia by Pavel Baudiš and Eduard Kučera. Over its 30-year-plus history, it has grown into one of the largest players in the antivirus market. Avast solutions regularly receive awards from independent industry expert companies.


Avast is antivirus software designed to protect your devices. A subsidiary of AVG Antivirus, Avast is currently one of the most popular antivirus programs available. The company offers free and paid options for customers.


As for the antivirus and malware scanning itself, independent lab tests give it a high rating. Avast detects most forms of malware before they reach your computer by quarantining and deleting the files. If it can't stop the malware before, it interrupts the downloading process.


I bought Avast antivirus software and recently added their Cleanup software and their Driver updater. After buying the Driver updater I was not able to use my scanner, which is connected via WIFI. Avast's solution is to have me buy another $200 package to fix their flawed software. Scammers!


Well, I have bought Avast Premium Security from the partner avast-tn.com. I really appreciate all the features starting from the efficient firewall, the wifi inspector, the remote access shield, but what is impressed me is that I can prevent access to apps and block my webcam when I need. And also the password protection is also feature I really like. Good job!


Hello, I have just bought Avast Ultimate from their partner avast-tn.com. Avast Ultimate contains SecureLine VPN. I was impressed by the MIMIC protocol that makes my connections secure and never blocked. 041b061a72
