Avast Free Antivirus 18.8.2356 + Crack Serial

The antivirus solution from developer AVAST Software comes in many flavors and most users opt for the free edition for obvious reasons. This does not make it any less reliable, however. The program features intuitive, advanced and customizable scanning methods along with other modules dedicated to computer safety.

The installer is completely configurable when it comes to shields (for files, emails and web), security tools and preferred languages. Since it is ad-supported, the utility offers to install unnecessary third-party components but they can be skipped.

The security tools include browser protection and cleanup (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox), software updater for other programs installed, remote assistance for access on other computers, SecureLine for connection encryption agsinst spyware via VPN, GrimeFighter for system cleanup and maintenance, Rescue Disk for worst case scenarios with malware-crippled PCs, and a simple management connector that reports the Avast status to COM monitoring software.

Avast is wrapped in a pleasant and easy-to-use interface which provides fast access to the av status, scanning methods, tools, portable devices with Avast installed for remote control (smartphones, tablets), statistics (real-time and historical data, component status), as well as the rich configuration area, and animated tray icon based on different events.

It is possible to perform a quick scan in areas where malware is known to hide, complete by taking into account the entire computer, in removable drives only, custom directories, or at every Windows boot in autostart processes and services.

It is not necessary to change any settings, since Avast has a pretty decent default configuration. But advanced users have the possibility to fiddle with options regarding rootkits, file types, the exact scan areas, heuristics, PUP and suspicious files, archive formats, action on malware detection, scan priority, reports, exclusions, and scan scheduling.

Unconfirmed suspected infections sent to the quarantine may be investigated to decide whether to keep or eliminate them, while reports with scan activities may be examined in logs.

The software updater automatically finds updates available for other programs, SecureLine must be purchased before it can be used, the browser cleanup component removes toolbars and resets browser settings to default if necessary, AccessAnywhere requires an Avast account (free) to control the PC from remote locations, and Rescue Disk creates a bootable USB or CD drive with the latest virus definitions to use for offline scanning and cleaning.

System resources can be hogged or spared, depending on how fast users want the scans to finish. It is possible to disable the file system, mail or web shield with one click and customize settings for each one of them. As far as virus detection ratio is concerned, Avast Free Antivirus delivers very good results, which places it among the top-rated antivirus solutions on the current market.

The utility's virus signatures can be kept up-to-date with Avast Virus Definitions. Those looking for enhanced security features can test and/or purchase Avast Premier, Avast Internet Security or Avast Pro Antivirus.

the vast free antivirus 2017 incorporating technology from a Fiji cyber capture and a plethora of other features let's put it to the test against the malware and see what it's worth this is Leo and you are watching the PC security Channel as you can see from here we are using default settings apart from the fact that I have enabled the scan for potentially unwanted programs the definitions are fully up to date and we're using version 17 - 2 - 8 8 Cu latest version as of now so without further ado let's get started with a short link to our first URL has a very honest file name no kidding ship dot exe let's see if the vast allows us to have that on our computer now really and it is quite vocal about it so this threat has been blocked for our convenience though I'm going to mute the audio not everyone's a fan of Avast detection sounds link number 2 claims to be an image although it's an exe file we'll just do what a naive user would that is save and run it unless of a stop so that is and it does so far so good here's some other recent malware and it is blocked before it even fully download it so that's quite sharp from a vApp this one is blocked before the page even loaded so that's the website block and now for our final link we'll save this one as an exe - that's no good because if apps blocks it this appears to be some kind of adware so that was a very smooth linked up we didn't see anything even get close to loading up now I'm going to bring in the more challenging part that is our malicious files before that I'll just temporarily disable the shields all right now we have our malware friends in here there are five hundred and twenty five of these right-click context menu scan this is how we're going to figure out the detection ratio for this folder I'm assuming the scan is a lot more in-depth because it took about ten times more time as compared to the previous version also threat detected I think Avast has an issue with plurals now come on how did this get passed beta without the GUI designers noticing anyway here's the long list of nasties that we have in the folder I'm just going to delete everything simple and effective now let's check what's left thirty four items which gives us a detection ratio of ninety three point five percent which is pretty good given our sample set now I'm going to go ahead and run these files to see if about zero day defenses can kick in and prevent these unknown salts from actually doing any damage as you can see everything's turned on now we're getting a lot of these this app cannot run on your PC alert this one is being analyzed and I guess that's what caused it to crash and I can't seem to be able to get any of these other files to run on the system for some reason so I guess that's the end of the test I've app did a really good job in protecting us from all kinds of malware and I can tell you that the folder we use had a very high concentration of ransomware however before you jump in and grab a copy for yourself I want to discuss a few things first of all the vast is not necessarily the most privacy friendly company as you would expect it being a free antivirus product it does have some things that you may or may not like depending on your preferences now I just want to clarify that I don't have anything against crop funding that's how this channel works as well and I don't want to take anything away from people who are using it ethically while still keeping their best interests in mind but as a user I would strongly recommend that you check out their privacy policy before you use their product and I would also recommend that you turn off a few things here that you may not want for example by default Avast enables the email signature which means every email you send will have some kind of VAS advertising text at the bottom or just saying that your secured by avast not everyone's a fan of that now again they do have a few annoying adware --is-- policies like yeah welcome gifts that are basically marketing promotion gimmicks and performance tuning apps which really are just ways to get you to drop a few dimes for no great service so let's just say some of their practices aren't necessarily my favorite but again that subjective it depends on you as long as you're okay with it protection wise it's a thumbs up also technically an important feature of this version is cyber capture which is just a fancy word for cloud-based analysis something a lot of Phase II companies have been doing but here's the thing the fast is trying to move more and more of their technologies to the cloud and this has two benefits the first thing it improves performance on the user computer and also it keeps their technology a secret since the analysis is done in the backend which means malware authors cannot predict what's going on and write malware to bypass it accordingly I really like that but at the same time I have concerns that that kind of makes this a more responsive process than a proactive process as far as I know though most actions I think are halted until the analysis or at least the initial analysis is complete so should be a great way of blocking zero-day threats that's all I have from here I hope you enjoyed this video please like it if you did and subscribe to the PC security channel if you want to see more informative and exciting content thank you for watching and as always stay informed stay secure
