AVG AntiVirus Free 2014

AVG AntiVirus Free not only gives you the top-quality antivirus protection and security features that you’d usually expect only from a paid product, but added privacy features for 2014 help keep your personal information safe both online and on your PC, and the new integrated File Shredder permanently deletes sensitive files to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Add to this our Anti-Spyware Technology and WiFi Guard, and you can be sure that wherever you are, at home or on the move, we’re taking your privacy seriously.

And it’s not just your PC and privacy that we help protect. Performance remains a significant factor, too. We firmly believe that antivirus software should never get in your way, so our smart scanning technology not only reduces scan times, it ensures that they take place when your PC isn’t busy with other tasks. In other words, you can get on and do what you need to without any delays or interruptions.

Improvements to the interface now also give you direct access to our great range of free apps, so we can help protect your mobile and tablet, too. Combine all this with comprehensive free online technical support, and you can be sure you’re getting the best possible free protection, privacy, and performance–that’s now even easier to use.

Avast Free Antivirus 2014

Avast Free Antivirus 2014 – Avast’s new layout is a unique and clean take on managing security. Rather than copying a flat Metro look like so many others, Avast organizes its environment and prioritizes it in a sensible manner.

Flat icons and subtle menu animations look great, secondary pop-out menus don’t feel cluttered, and the toggle icon also helps create a cleaner experience.

Avast represents itself as more of a security manager than just a conventional scanner. This version includes a command center-like dashboard for tracking security statistics, pop-up notifiers for system status and security news, a multidevice manager, and a streamlined upgrade pipeline via in-app store.

What’s new in this version:

  • Fixed connection issues from Java applets
  • Fixed issues with Security Center registration
  • Fixed problems with non english languages in RescueDisk
  • GUI fixes
  • Firewall fixes
  • Fixed issues with WinDVD and SQL connectors
  • Fixed issue with non-refreshing Metro apps in Win 8.1
