Windows 7: Avast information box

30 May 2011   #11


This should do it: Avast Free Antivirus - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

You needed to Google Avast free download. I always look for the CNET result for what I want, as the manufacturer sometimes tries to hide the free version or make it confusing to get one.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1, 32-bit

I got one loaded that I did google I don't know if it passes CNET standards, but after trying the first six on in the row, I finally took the first one that went through. Does the site where you download it from make a difference.

Only if you want to be sure to get the free version. It sounds like you might have instead gotten a 30 day trial of the paid version. I guess you can wait to see if you need to swap it out.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I think it is always best to download from the author's website:

PattiChati, when you open avast! does it display "avast! FREE ANTIVIRUS," "avast! PRO ANTIVIRUS" or "avast! INTERNET SECURITY?"

Can you imagine how much wasted junk is in computers. Would love to get rid of it all. Have a clean computer without having to reinstall windows 7. Thank you.
Let's clarify what free trial means in the Avast case:

1 - Avast Free Antivirus
after installing it, you have 30 days to register it for free, or it stops updating the virus definitions after this test period;

2 - Avast
Professional and Avast Internet Security
after installing it, you have 30 days to buy a license, or it stops updating the virus definitions after this test period;

3 - In both cases above, all features will be available during the trial period.
