You can achieve identical levels of protection with Avast Free.

Additional features can be found in paid versions, but does not include all that avast has to offer. For example, Avast Premier does NOT include use for SecureLine VPN, CleanUp, Mobile Security Pro, Passwords Premium etc. This must be purchased separately, on top of your Premier license.

I suggest using Free for about a month, and see how it works out for your PC.
Hmm doenst it have basic cleanup?

This is non scientific, but it is my opinion after building, and spending a lot of time with my PC.

This years Avast Premium is the fastest security solution I have ever tried.

Opening apps is much faster, surfing the web doesn't slow at all, and gaming is unfazed. No one else comes close, including limited single solutions with just Windows defender. 2nd place was Comodo Free Firewall, with Avira, 3rd was Comodo Firewall with Windows Defender.

This is on a clean install, backed up with Macrium, restored each time "fresh" when trying new software or security solutions.

Hats off to Avast, settings custom per jack here on MWT.Com

Avast by far. Been using it for about 10 years. (Free version) Haven't gotten infected yet. Follow Jack's guide and your good. All you basically need is the protection shields and maybe Safezone as a secondary browser... :)

Then i think ill just stick with Avira but Spawn, DO u know any second opinion free realtime protection for by Avira?
Avira doesn't not have a CleanUp tool either, not without a license. Try Avast Free and go on from there.

Does avast Premier have a Tuneup in it?
Yes, it's included in Avast Free to Premier, but you need to purchase a license for Avast Cleanup for PC.
Cleanup | Optimize, clean & speed up my PC | Avast

I have not used Avast Cleanup and cannot comment on it's effective against other similar software, however, I can recommend freeware options such as CCleaner as it's works very well without paying a fee. Others may use their preferred software.

Yes, that's most people here would recommend. You can download a Slim build of CCleaner from Builds page, portable also available. A Professional version is available for Automatic program updates, Auto-cleaning and more.
