avast! 2015 FREE Antivirus Setup Instructions
« on: November 20, 2013, 01:06:36 pm »
First you need to download avast! 2015 FREE Antivirus from here avast! 2015 FREE antivirus and download the file attached to the bottom of this post named drtweak avast2015.zip and unzip it. All images in this tutorial are clickable to make them larger for better viewing.

This is the first screen you will see during your avast! FREE installation, choose the option "Custom installation". If you do not want Dropbox installed then uncheck the option here.

Select "Continue" here.

Choose these custom options here. Under "Shields" only check "Mail Shield" if you are using an email program such as Microsoft Outlook or Windows Mail, the majority of users today use a web based email client so the mail shield is not needed. Under "Tools" Uncheck every box except for "NG", this is avast's new Next generation technology. If you do not see the option for NG then you need to enable virtualization in your BIOS - How to Enable Virtualization in your BIOS. I do not recommend installing any of the other features. Under "Language" choose yours. *Note* NG Technology is not an option when installing Avast in Windows 10.

Here simply select "Continue".

Once again select "Continue".

avast! will now install.

avast! is now installed, select "Done".

Choose the option to "Skip this tutorial".

Here is the main screen for avast!, make sure to select "Register"at the top. When prompted choose the option to stay with basic free protection. You have 30 days to do so for free definition updates for 1 year. Don't worry, they will not SPAM you, you will receive one email wanting you to verify that you are the customer registering. Now select the "Settings" option to the bottom left of this screen.

Scroll down to the bottom of the settings options and here is where you will insert my recommended settings, the file you downloaded from this post named drtweak avast2015.zip. Simply unzip the file and select "Restore settings".

This is the screen that you will see next, leave all boxes checked and select "Continue".

Make sure "Scan for potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) is checked, it should be checked with my settings but sometimes it doesn't get checked. Now select "OK" and reboot your computer.
