Which product actually cleans a virus
« on: September 22, 2019, 04:37:56 PM »
Hi. Today I realised that my after a major repair to my laptop, I hadn't installed any anti virus software. I now have installed Avast Cleanup Premium and Avast Internet Security....but am I missing something here? I wanted to check my laptop for viruses.

Avast Internet Security will protect you from viruses and allow you to do on-demand scan for viruses if you wish. e.g. Full Scan.

It's always a good idea (Prudent) when  new software is purchased, to open your product and review the different Catagories and settings throughout the UI (User Interface)  :)
