Editor's review
Light and good design for a popular antivirus program,probably you already know it and if you don't,try it.It has multiple languages incorporated in installation kit.Also,can choose different types of installations like minimal or customize it.Avast offers protection for email,P2P programs and downloads like uTorrent, protection while using instant messengers or network shield.

Setup process is offering to install Google Chrome browser and you can take it or not.

The main options are:

On Avast you can configure:

Can set the maximum size of the chest and the max size of the files you can sent with this software. Can write path who want to be excluded while scanning .Interesting Avast feature is the Alert system: you can be notified through ICQ, MSN printer or WinPopus when a virus is detected on your computer .
