Ofcourse it has.
avast is a malware detector/remover.

But keep in mind that there is no application that can detect everything.
I suggest to run avast in real time and use MBAM for a e.g. weekly scan.

What do you mean run in real time?
I have all my shields up, firewall and the rest that are normal for internet security.
And what is MBAM? My first languish is not English

Real time means active and MBAM is Malwarebytes Anti Malware.
