avast! antivirus 4.8 now has anti-spyware, anti-rootkit self-protection, all built in, offering the best value anti-malware product for free.
Eduard Kucera, ALWIL Software a.s. CEO, said of the release, “While only an upgrade of avast!, this version represents a major evolution of the avast! technology. Many of our competitors charge extra for anti-spyware or anti-rootkit detection, or don’t add the functionality at all. We don’t think a partial solution in scanning is a solution at all.” Mr. Kucera continues, “With the release of avast! antivirus 4.8, we have innovated again in the industry, by adding this functionality to the avast! core scan engine technology.”
avast! antivirus regularly receives the Virus Bulletin 100% award, for detection of 100% of in-the-wild viruses, and is an SC Awards winning product.
avast! antivirus 4.8 is available now for download from the http://www.avast.com website.
