Avast Ultimate is a security tool with an excellent detection rate and many extra features. Its malware scan scored 100 percent in my tests. Additionally, its web protection stopped websites that offered phishing services that were able to slip past Chrome’s and Firefox’s default security. Other features include the Rescue Disk, a secure browser for online banking and shopping, advanced tracker blocking and a VPN.
The interface for users of the suite is simple to navigate. Its main screen shows a list of the most essential tools, with clear icons that describe their functions. The color scheme of Avast is orange white, blue, and. It’s easy to read and pleasing to the eyes.
In the Explore menu, you can find more detailed tools’ controls, including custom scans, boot-time scanning and an automatic updater. You can also save a particular type of scan in the “Scan Center” so that you can run it again at a later time.
The advanced features of Avast can assist you to in preventing ransomware by checking your PC for suspicious activity and encrypting files that could be targeted. It can identify trojan horses (malicious programs that disguise themselves as legitimate software that get into your computer) and prevent them from running.
Avast provides 24/7 email, phone and live chat support. The free versions of the product are backed by a comprehensive community of experts and knowledge and paid plans come with advanced features like identity protection and unlimited VPN, USB protection and patch management.
