Looking at the user interface, actually it does not change a lot compared to the 2014 version. The colors are slightly improved. However, the newer version 2017 offer faster access to your security components.
So, before going to the meat of the review I would like to jot some pros and cons you may want to consider.
Folks are satisfied with the network protection scanner since this feature helps a lot for those who have problem with home router security problems. I’ve been looking for the best software to protect my PC from malicious URL. And I tested about dozens free software. Finding out Avast has the best blocking performance, I immediately switched my antivirus to Avast Free Antivirus 2017. Added with bunch of security bonus tools, I feel convenient with Avast protection.
The thing that I am actually concerning is the fact that some bonus tools are not free. We need to purchase separated bonus tools to protect our PC effectively. Well, I can not get my hands dirty in this business since it is free software. So I just will leave this behind.
Back to the new home router security again. I think what Avast has been improving so far is very brilliant. I have run the URL check myself and found out that this is the best free antivirus to perform the feature.
The other stuff that I would like to highlight is the real-time protection feature of this free antivirus. The real-time protection feature will take care of the protection whatever your activities will be. The first time I turned this feature on, it wiped out almost 90 percent of my malware samples. With this proof, you will less worry about your PC protection. The scanning process also does not require too much time though it depends on how big the size of your HardDisk.
Overall, I would like to give this 5 stars. I am definitely a true fan of Avast Free Antivirus.
