Avast Free Antivirus 17.9

What’s new:

Scans available in the Protection menu no longer includes Quick Scan function, it has been removed. Apart from Smart scan – which you’ve to now as use Quick scan- other scan options available are: Full time scan, targeted scan, boot time scan and custom scans.

Avast Passwords UI has been redesigned.

After installing Avast, it reports more information about its status to the Windows Security Center in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

You’ll see more Avast UI.exe processes running, that’s normal.

Avast User interface loads slowly, this is intentional and has been done to load Avast UI window quickly after that elements display after slight delay.
