Avast Free Antivirus Features

  • Avast! Antivirus is a widely used antivirus program, with 100 million users worldwide as of December 2009.
  • Resident protection comprising individual modules or "shields", each of which can be individually configured or disabled.
  • Anti-spyware capabilities
  • Anti-rootkit capabilities
  • Self-Protection - Prevents malware from terminating avast! processes and damaging avast! files.
  • Automatic incremental updates - Updates of both the program and the virus database which is used to identify potential threats - Avast! updates its virus definitions on a regular basis (sometimes multiple updates daily) and this process is automated by default.
  • Audible alarms - Vocal warnings and notices such as "Caution, a virus has been detected!" and "Virus database has been updated."
  • Boot-time scan (32 bit only) - Users can schedule a boot-time scan to remove infections that load during Windows startup.
  • Virus Chest - Quarantine; folder where infected files can be stored. The virus chest also stores vital system files to protect them from damage by malware. Users can also add their own files to the virus chest. Once in the chest, a file cannot be executed; double-clicking the file will instead display information about the file.
