Avast! Free Antivirus?

So i downloaded Avast, and now i have 12 days to register. If i do what will happen? Do i have to pay anything. Is there any other free antivirus scanners that i don't have to pay and can keep for the next three years?

    The best way is to download Ccleaner here http://bitly.com/UrALrK

    Or you can go on Windows operating system locate the command prompt and go there to do the following:

    Create a Recovery file of system and date it today.

    Then begin by;

    delete the 'Temp' folders..they have hidden subfolders so you need to set the attributes in order to bypass this. For each subfolder delete all cookies and rubbish left behnd after install-uninstalled programs. Do a 'dir' command to check your progress. Make sure the 'Temp' file is empty.

    goto c:\windows\prefetch and delete everything in there..no exceptions

    goto c:\windows folder and delete all the '$' files that have been installed by updates. They can all be succesfully deleted and just take up disk space.

    Locate the Internet Temporary Files..Check to see how high the saving level is..some have it set at 30 days..but that stores faaaar tooo much data..though it slows down the system overal. Keep this to a minimum..suggest 2 or 5 at most.

    Delete all 'cookies' all those you don't need.

    Locate the windows directory and go through the folders you know and those you don't need. Check this once a week at least. Some programs will install under XP as NT and older systems where there is no check of systems weight.

    Check to see that system files have not changed since last booting. Things like .ini files or .bat are important items.

    Check for 'Hidden Directories' all over the disk...do this at the command prompt:

    dir *.* /ah wil show these hidden directories

    Check the 'dir' command for all parameters

    No you don't have to pay. It is just a way for Avast to show proof to their competitors that many users like their software. Anyway Avast is the best antivirus.

    You will know if you have to pay for it, but avast is free unless you upgrade to premium. I highly suggest going to www.techsupportalert.com they show you all of the free software available to download, and give you very helpful reviews of security and all other types of software.

    Good luck and browse safe!

    Every anti virus I've ever had, you had to register for. Avast, AVG. . . so forth.

    Just make sure that when you register, you're registering for the free license and no the paid version.

    avast! Free Antivirus often outperforms our competitors´ paid-for products in independent tests, leading in both security features and scanning speed. In fact, AV-Comparatives.org rated avas.

    Our avast! Free Antivirus often outperforms our competitors´ paid-for products and is the minimum protection anyone should have against viruses and spyware.

    But if you shop or bank online and store sensitive data on your PC, we recommend our maximum, next-generation protection.
