Download Avast Free Antivirus 2011

When we go to download sites like Softpedia or CNET Downloads, we come to know that Avast Free Antivirus is the most downloaded antivirus in the category of free antivirus and rightly so because of its great feature set and protection against the malware. It is a perfect solution for home computers.
While my favorite is Avira Free Antivirus, the new version of Avast released in 2011, Avast 6, looks promising with new additional features. Previously I wrote about Avast Free Antivirus 5, now lets look at what Avast Free Antivirus 6 is offering:

  • Anti-spyware
  • Web Shield
  • Anti-rootkit
  • Automatic updates
  • Strong self-protection
  • Virus Chest
  • Antivirus kernel
  • System integration
  • Simple User Interface
  • Integrated Virus Cleaner
  • Resident protection
  • Support for 64-bit Windows
  • P2P and IM Shields
  • Internationalization
  • Network Shield

The Professional version of Avast Antivirus also includes internet safety so that you can safely shop or bank online. But if you are a home user, the free edition is perfect for you.
The on-demand scanning of Avast is the best as tested in AV-Comparitives August 2010 update. Here’s the comparison chart:
