Could you bring back Avast Sandbox feature to Avast Free Antivirus, please? Back to 2012, this feature did help users in my company to avoid being attacked by unrecognized exe files. After that, it has been removed and causing a lot of troubles for my company.

The auto-sandbox is still included in Avast Free, the full (manual) sandbox is only available in the paid versions.

I want the avast free firewall to be able to detect any internet port or protocol that is dangerous because there are many protocols that hackers can use

You could add a quick (very fast) scan of USB drives as they are inserted.
At the moment the user can choose to have the popup appear to execute the request.
Therefore, the option of automatic scanning on user choice could possibly be implemented.
Thank you and good day!

Very quick depends on the amount of data on that drive.

Avast already scans any activity on the USB that you plug in, personally scanning dormant files is link on-demand scans in general of limited benefit.

As Bob said depends on the data on the USB,  I have a 2TB external HDD (that connects by USB), I certainly wouldn't want that scanned before I do my backups.

I highly recommend that Avast Free Antivirus Installer should only include basic features like File Shield, Behaviour Shield, Web Shield, Mail Shield, Ransomware Shield and Rescue Disk because others are totally not free at all and they make the Avast installers become too big. As a result, Avast slow any PC down no matter how powerful it is.

Just for clarification, Parts of a program that aren't running don't affect your system.
They may be taking up unnecessary hard drive space but don't have any impact on the system.

There is nothing to stop you selecting the Minimal Installation or Custom Installation when you first install or change the components you want after installation.  Control Panel > Programs > select Avast Antivirus and then Change.

 Could Avast team bring back "the registration code" feature, please? Because I didn't see any remaining days left when using Avast Free Antivirus . As a result, after twelve months of using Avast Free Antivirus, it suddenly requires me re-active the program when I don't have access to the Internet at that time. Consequently, I felt so disappointed to lose the protection of Avast until coming back home. So could you bring back the registration code for Avast Free Antivirus along with one-year license so that I can see the remaining days left of the program and re-register the program before its expires.

How is Hard Disk health related to cyber security?
There are already many utilities available that will do that for you like
like Hard Disk Sentinel and HDDScan.

Sorry to say very disappointed with anti track that is part of the later bundle slows down all web pages. Completely stops access to some emails as it takes to long to allow them to load they time out and then you get the stupid ox app page comes up and slows it down even more so then no access to emails until you remove anti track from pc. BUT you are still paying for it but cant use it as it stops things that would normally work in no time at all from running But hey Avast don't care they already have your money and you struggle to get any help from them that does any good to make it work properly. I asked for part refund as cant use anti track but was told it's part of the bundle price so no refund unless I uninstall all avast from pc. Seriously looking to change anti virus supplier even though been with avast for years and had no problems up till latest "bundle" installation and on-going problems with it. And before anyone comments on try this or try that I have been there and got the T-shirt even avast tech-nerds cant sort it so what do us lowly commoners do????

Avast is really best this decade.
Best for Protection,Performance

THis essential feature is missing from my openion i am sharing with Avast Security Expert team
In NORTON they have Cloud storage supprot,25 gb+ they are giving to Consumer.but Avast dont have this feature.
(as a consumer i think THis feature will give us EXTRA security Feature surity)
