How does Avast Free Antivirus stack up?

Avast Antivirus is free, but it’s also robust. Its protection doesn’t rely on a signature database but can also tap into the cloud to fight malware. The app is a scanner that checks your files and programs against a database of identified malware. The ones that are infected or suspicious are flagged for your attention. When Avast identifies a threat, it uploads the culprit to its lab.
