Performance settings for avast antivirus
Avast is among the more intuitive antiviruses to use, with every major feature accessible via a single menu. It’s also effective and easy to understand, with short explanations on each major feature, as well as a simple search feature that makes sure you’ll never be confused about what it is that something does.
While Avast’s features do possess some major flaws compared to other security software at similar price points but the suite does a great job overall of keeping your system secure and running smoothly. AV-Test awarded it top marks in both functionality and protection tests. Real-world testing by AV-Comparatives and MRG-Effitas demonstrated that the program was able to block 98 percent of all 0-day malware scratches.
Contrary to the majority of free antivirus programs, Avast Cleanup doesn’t slow down your device while you’re scanning and its built/in PC optimizer can help you to finish out your components by delaying background activity, snoozing software, recovering storage space and increasing battery life to allow longer gaming sessions.
Upgrade to the premium version of Avast offers access to several additional tools, including anti-phishing protections, an advanced firewall webcam security, a VPN and system tuneup equipment. These extras are not equivalent to the features that other security software offers at the same cost, such a parental control and password manager.
