Publisher's Description of avast! Free Antivirus

" The world's most popular, free and complete anti-virus and anti-spyware solution. "
- From AVAST Software a.s.

avast! Free Antivirus is a free complete ICSA certified antivirus software for home non-commercial use. avast! obtained VB100% awards in 2002/3 Virus Bulletin comparative reviews under Windows XP Pro.

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 avast! 5.0 the fastest out of 20 antivirus programs!

avast! Free Antivirus Key Features:

- Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
Innovative scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents.

- Real-time anti-rootkit protection
Prevents stealth malware ('rootkits') that, when loaded by the computer's OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.

- avast! WebRep
Provides website reliability and reputation ratings according to community-provided feedback.

- Boot-time scanner
Scans your computer for infections before the OS can start to activate any viruses beneath it (now applies to Windows 7 and Windows Vista).

- AutoSandbox
Prompts users to run suspicious applications in the virtual Sandbox environment.

- Intelligent Scanner
Reduces the number of required file scans up to 80% through a white list of safe applications. Files identified as safe are not rescanned unless they change.

- Silent/Gaming Mode
Automatically detects full-screen applications and disables pop-ups and other notifications without compromising security.

- Green computing
Leaves a minimal "footprint" due to its efficient and effective technology.

- File System Shield
Real-time scanning of opened/executed files.

- Mail Shield
Scans all incoming/outgoing email for malware (a special plug-in is used for MS Outlook).

- Web Shield Improved
Scans all visited web pages, downloaded files, and java scripts. Thanks to the intelligent stream scanning feature, the Web Shield doesn't slow your web browsing.

- P2P Shield/IM Shield
Checks files downloaded via P2P programs and while using IM or "chat" programs.

- Network Shield
Protects against network-based viruses with two main components: a URL blocker for malicious URLs, and a lightweight intrusion-detection system.

- Script Shield Improved
Detects malicious scripts hidden in web pages and prevents them from hijacking and potentially damaging your computer.

- Behavior Shield Improved
Stops 'zero-day' threats and unknown malware before virus definitions have been obtained.

- Heuristics engine
Proactively finds malware undetectable with normal definitions and virus signatures.

- Code emulator
Uses dynamic translation (a method much faster than traditional emulation) for both generic unpacking and within the heuristics engine.

- Automatic processing
Infected files are processed automatically, without requiring user instructions.

- Smart virus definition updates
Incremental updating minimizes the size of regular update files.

- Fast application of updates
New format for the virus definition file means faster updates and reduces demand on CPU/memory, for uninterrupted computing.

- Multi-threaded scanning optimization
Allows the splitting of large files between cores, which accelerates the scanning process on new multi-core CPUs and makes avast! run even faster.

- Wake-up/Scheduled scanning
Schedule scanning at night or whenever you don’t need to use your PC.
