  • 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."
