There are quite some noticeable changes, the whole interface has been revamped and now makes navigation much more easier. Apart from the default Virus scanning feature, it contains Real-Time Shields, which are, File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, P2P Shield, IM Shield, Network Shield, and Behavior Shield.

There are few useful scan options by default that allows users to quickly start a virus scan, they are Quick Scan, Full System Scan, Removable Media Scan, and Select Folder to Scan. And if this is not enough, there is also an option to create a custom scan.

If you are looking for a new antivirus software to replace your existing antivirus, then the time for Avast 5 Free Antivirus is not ripe yet. You will have to wait till October for the full version, in the meanwhile you can stick with your existing antivirus.

Note: This is the beta software which means that it is available for those only users who would like to test it out. It does not provide full protection because the virus definition updates are not up-to-date in this beta version.

    well.. if you’re looking for sth more than the usual protection.. i recommend you the 2010 bitdefender products. i’ve tested total security on w7.. and they work really well together. and i especially like the IM encryption feature..
    good luck and stay protected!

  • marsha

    Got a couple of questions. When free-Avast5 first installed and did its initial full system scan, got the message “some files could not be scanned.” When I looked up these files they were avast definition files. Well, I wrote them down and tried to search computer with internet explorer so that I might manually scan them and found that the files had changed slightly. There was this 8 digit number after defs——– and it was a completely different number. Did Avast change this? And the mail shield doesn't always stay on at startup. Sometimes have to turn it back on. Is this something that should be a concern? Other than that, LOVE it! Thank you.
