Avast is one of the most widely accessible and powerful security suites available on the market, with a substantial user base and a broad assortment of tools. Installation is smooth and straightforward and you’re not pushed into upgrading to the premium version (although the full scan can significantly impact the performance of your system). The interface is straightforward and clear, with the central scan button as well as clearly-colored icons representing the different parts of the suite. Unfortunately, the desire to minimise the amount of options on display has also led to some features being hidden away in the Explore tab and the grey-on white text may be difficult for those with impaired vision. This free program is partially paid for by advertisements and provides the possibility of installing software from a partner.
