(Click on Download, and the No thanks, I want free protection option)



Release History



Changes:
  • We've improved the security of the product - e.g security of our processes (guarded by the self defense component), we handle the conditions for the Guest account better, we are very senstitive for any incorrect inputs from the user with a negative impact on the system's security, or, we tuned the import settings functionality not to allow bypassing any protections
  • We've added "resume" support in the setup component, so some of you should notice smoother downloading - depends on a "quality" of your connection (mainly during the program update where the amount of data is quite big)
  • We've included a new antispam library (IS/Premier editions) for better accuracy of our anti-spam module
  • We've put warnings during the installation process if there could be some obvious problems resulting in not 100% functionality after the installation (missing admin rights, insufficient space on disk, etc.)
  • We've added ability to disable promotion popups (in PRO/IS/Premier editions). We strongly believe that our additional products can be valuable for you, but we also respect your will not to be bothered by such offers.
  • We've performed a static analysis of our code resulting in many fixes (but don't worry, nothing was critical, just a small tuning
  • General bugfixing - this covers a lot of stability & performance changes in all components (but the main focus was traditionally on the network & engine components)

Thanks from me too Brink, I thought that it would auto update the program on its own.

It will if you have it set to automatic update in the program control panel.

Avast! is definitely the best antivirus for Windows, after being totally satisfied with the home edition for a couple of years I moved on to pro. But thanks for getting the word out so people with other AVs could get one that actually doesn't bother them. The most useful feature by far is P2P protection which scans Limewire downloads as soon as they're finished.

Gaving never used Avast before I nearly jumped out of my skin a few minutes ago when Avast announced in loud stentorian tones that it had updated itself. I had no idea it had a verbal updater.
