I got a 5 year license to AVAST for cheap because of my LLC.

I'm looking for a well built config that is set to work well with Premier I know there are a bunch for FREE AV but I want a config for premier or if you don't have one at least a push in the right direction to make a good one.

You can try out eicar test files to see how does your av works

If you download H_C, it will prompt you before avast do. And even you run something malicious by yourself the avast will kick in and if this happens nothing will run anyways, because of sponsors H_C have (if recommended settings)

I wouldnt worry too much, just go throught settings and read forum threads + google something yourself and youre getting more familiar by time

Im using WD with H_C myself, but this thread made me think of using avast free someday again

H_C will block/restrict Windows scripts and other dangerous files. Avast in Hardened Aggressive mode will block executables (usually EXE and TMP files) which are not accepted by the avast! file reputation database.
H_C (Avast profile) + Avast is a default-deny setup for semi-advanced users, not for beginners.(y)

If you want Hardened Aggressive mode can access old Settings, Troubleshooting>Open Old Settings. This is tweaks for Avast free but is very good tweaks and for Avast premier. For extra tweaks you can play with Avast firewall. And for very strong protection Avast + syshardener combo

Avast Premier is really NOT worth it, complimentary license or not.*

Here's what's NOT included in your Avast Premier license:
  • SecureLine VPN
  • Cleanup Premium
  • Passwords Premium
  • Anti-Track Premium
  • Driver Updater Premium (clone of AVG apps)
Enjoy Avast shoving crap on your PC.**

I usually install Avast Free (custom install on minimal protection preset) on old computers that can't run Windows 10 and is OK no bloatware, no crap just the pure antivirus.

You bought the DEVIL (to privacy) to home for free? If i were you I would sell that to my enemy for free.
