avast! Internet Security provides complete antivirus, anti-spyware, antispam, and firewall protection, complemented now by new avast! SafeZoneв„ў technology. It creates an isolated virtual desktop, invisible to any possible attacker, where you can do your online shopping and banking securely.
What's New in This Release:Most notable improvements include:
В· Boot-time scanner for 64-bit OSes (finally!)
В· Behavior Shield improvements - now with more sensors and able to detect exact offenders*
В· Improved cleaning of infected computers
В· Improved anti-rootkit engine - now capable of dealing with the latest TDL variants, for example
В· Web Shield improvements (both stability and performance related)
В· Mail and Web Shields not hosted in separate NT services anymore, resulting in much faster starts
В· IS: new version of antispam engine
В· Sound packs (more info coming later)
В· *The Behavior Shield functionality is still incomplete in this build. And even in the final v5.1, it will work only in "passive mode", which means that the new sensors will be active but won't be stopping the attacks, just reporting them to our backend infrastructure (unless you have opted out from the avast! community membership). This is to allow us to collect enough data before enabling the real thing in Q1 2011.
