From Avast Software:
Lightweight, state-of-the-art protection that won’t slow down your PC. Avast Free Antivirus has been redesigned to be easier to use while staying light on your PC. It offers proprietary, cutting-edge CyberCapture technology that finds and stops unknown files, as well as improved Wi-Fi Inspector which can identify even more weak points in your router. It also features SafeZone, the world’s most secure browser, and an enhanced Game Mode which turns off background checks and updates to maximize your gaming experience.
Avast has one of the most popular antivirus apps around, due in part to offering a free version, and it’s one that performs respectably. The company acquired its rival AVG in September of 2016, and now both use Avast’s malware scanning engine, but their distinct personalities remain. Here are the highlights of Avast’s latest release.
|· We’ve set our VPN free – SecureLine VPN is no longer attached to your antivirus. It’s now a separate product
· A safer UEFI – Anti-rootkit scan now protects your UEFI (unified extensible firmware interface)
· When installing Avast Ultimate, all products in the bundle will be installed in one go
· Fixed our boot-time scan
· Made sure our UI loads correctly
· Fixed a bug for our users in Russia where Passive Mode sometimes turned on for no reason
