    For most of this year I have recommended Avast 8 Free for the Advanced/ Geek users and Bitdefender Free for the Novice and Newbies.

    With this release of Avast 9 and the implementation of the Hardened Mode, I can safely say that it can now be recommended for Advanced And Novice users. Bitdefender Free still remains as a highly recommended Free AV for anyone.

    The previous 8 real time scanners in Avast have been integrated into only 3 scanners, Files, Web and e-Mail with a lot less settings to be maintained.

    DeepScreen has replaced AutoSandbox component to better fulfill the purpose. It is designed to clear all code obfuscating the true intentions of malware. When a file is labeled as suspicious, it is launched and analyzed in the sandbox.

    A standalone layer of protection, designed for novice users only is the Hardened Mode.

    This is a very good review -> HERE! Check it out…
