Step 2 (out of 4) – Select the Level of Protection

After clicking on any of the Activation buttons you will get a screen where you can select between free (standard) and paid (complete) protection. Basically you will see a comparison between Avast Free Antivirus, and Avast Internet Security.

If you want free protection, click on the grey ‘Select‘ button in the ‘Avast Free Antivirus‘ column. However, upgrading to premium protection is definitely worth it. Especially for the great 60% discount you are getting.

Obviously with complete protection (Internet Security) you will get much better protection. Especially if you are shopping or banking online, you will find it useful and protective. On the other hand with the free version you will also get a decent level of protection. It’s totally up to you whether you want to invest $20 a year or use the free antivirus.

My name is Paul and I love Avast since the Home Edition v4.8 (2008). I am recommending it to all my friends, but I realized they don't know how to use it. So I started this site in order to help others getting maximum from this awesome antivirus. Feel free to contact me via Facebook, comments below or this form.

    A friend of mine tried his best to convince me that his computer was heavily infected, based on the results of a two-year-old AVG with same age definitions, sigh. So I ran your FREE product, no threat detected. Would that sort out the argument, that his computer is fine? He says anti-virus programs CAN be defeated, would that be the case if booting straight off a rescue CD? Would it still be compromised by infection in the BIOS?

    This didn’t work at all for me using the free antivirus. I logged into my account. It said I had nothing connected to my account. I followed the instructions. It reinstalled the free antivirus over my existing copy. I was never given an activation key at any time. When I now login to my account. I’m now told I have one version installed (on my PC). But I still have no activation key which I can enter. Please help.
