avast! Free Antivirus 2014.9.0.2011 iconavast! Free Antivirus Publisher's description

Reliable antivirus software with spyware protection

Antivirus and Anti-spyware Engine:

- Our award-winning scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents, now with a new algorithm that is based on machine learning, which can process new-virus data in milliseconds.

Streaming, Real-time Virus Database Updates:
- Each virus signature comes to you in real-time via connection to the AVAST Virus Lab cloud, rather than needing to wait for a traditional virus-database update. Your database will be continuously updated with latest definitions.

File Reputation System:
- Now with more than a billion unique files in our cloud, avast! FileRep lets you know whether a file is safe before you open it - determined in part by how many people have the file and how new the file is. The technology is also used internally, to
- help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions.

- Software Updater
- Browser Cleanup
- Behavior Shield

Core Technologies:
- Real-time Anti-rootkit Protection

What's New in This Release:

- Fully rewritten WebShield so that it now doesn't work as a "transparent proxy" anymore, which should result in an overall improvement in stability and performance. It also allows to see and detect more threats.
- The Firewall component (in IS and Premier) has been made more compatible with other applications, such as Java and various VPN services.
- The installer/updater has been improved to allow more reliable installation in case of infected machines.
- The changes in the File System Shield's driver should result in faster performance, especially in the copy files and install programs scenarios.
- Browser Cleanup tool beefed up to be able to rip off even the more stubborn toolbars
- For trialware users, we have also added an interactive tutorial that explains all the features of the product in a straightforward, concise manner.
- Connectivity to the new avast! GrimeFighter product.
- SafePrice is a new, optional module of the Avast browser plugins. It's designed to combine security (hence the "safe" part) with best deals (hence the "price") into one, easy-to-use module.
