|Avast for Mac For free|
InstallationAvast has improved its installation process so it’s faster than before. It’s not the fastest on the market, not by a longshot, but a standard installation took us about three minutes.
Automatic installation of these features is frowned upon, although Avast does provide a clear method for uninstalling them. It’s just not as simple as a check box that gets its own installation window, since you have to go through the Customize menu, which makes the auto-install sort of surreptitious.

The current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer both block forced add-on installation. When you run one of those browsers for the first time after installing Avast, they’ll ask you if you want to allow the new add-on.
On the plus side, installing Avast doesn’t require a reboot, and using its uninstall tool we detected no remnants in the Registry or on the desktop. Avast has said that the installer has shrunk for all three versions by about 20 percent, although it’s still a large download at around 70MB for the free version.
A new Avast installation option, available only from the custom install menu, lets you sideload Avast as a secondary security program to supplement your main one. We’re not big fans of this option from a security point-of-view, because it can bog down your system resources without actually making you safer. However, for seeing if you like Avast, it’s not a bad thing as long as you remember to choose one security suite to go with.
