avast! Free Antivirus Desciption:

The world's most popular antivirus is now even better. avast! Free Antivirus 8 offers: improvements to its Behavior Shield and Remote Assistance, improved the energy-saver settings, new Software Updater and Browser Cleanup tool, and more.


Our flagship avast! Free Antivirus is here again with more of what makes it the world's most widely used antivirus. We've made improvements to its Behavior Shield and Remote Assistance, improved the cloud technologies and the energy-saver settings, and more. And we've simplified the UI and added a Software Updater for easily keeping the eye on all your potential vulnerabilities. Plus, there's an optional Browser Cleanup tool for removing pesky toolbars and plugins. SecureLine is a paid VPN service that both secures and anonymizes your internet connection on public/open (unsecured) Wi-Fi.

Hybrid Cloud Technologies

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.
