Just recently I received a notification that its expiring and need to be renewed. Its a yearly renewal, I've been renewing it for the past 3 years. This antivirus is simply cool!
Renewal process is simple, just type-in your name and email address. Presto! you've just renewed your subscription.
Here are some of its features:
State of the art scanning engine provides reliable protection against viruses, spyware and other forms of malicious software.
Real time anti-rootkit protection
Unique "on access" technology checks all kernel-mode drivers that the operating system is loading for signs of rootkit behavior. This enables even unknown rootkits to be detected and stopped before they can do any damage. Get more information here: Avast Download and Features
Personally, I like it for the following reasons:
- 1. Light on resources (tough on virus, gentle on computer)
- 2. Active scanner that will give notification when detected some malicious activities.
- 3. System files are correctly identified (windows files, device drivers, program files) vs malicious files.
- 4. Its FREE!
