Hi, I assume you mean Avast not advast.

I would personally never go for AVG antivirus, due to its awful virus recognition record, it does however have a link advisor compatible with FF and IE.

I have never used Avast and can't comment to much on it but from the feedback from other members of this forum I think it's ok, not sure if it has a link advisor.

I offer you a third option which is always the option I would go for if using free antivirus; Microsoft Security Essentials.

MSE has one of the smallest footprints and highest virus protection rates of all the free antivirus software out there. It does not come with a link advisor (I think) but I think if you use FF you can download AVG link checker without having AVG Free installed.

Hello brightsun,
Yes AVG {free & paid version} does have a LinkScanner® Active Surf-Shield
that they claim ensures every web page you visit is safe – even before you go there.
Should you decide on AVG I suggest you download the program from their site.
FYI - I use AVG & would recommend it.
Refer the AVG link below to see exactly what is included -

Compare AVG Antivirus, Internet Security & Identity Protection Software

My advice would be to avoid it.
