One of the best antiviruses for Windows

Review last updated: 03/11/15

  • Versatile antivirus
  • Accessible and user friendly interface
  • Several tools and settings
  • Excellent detection of threats
  • The new Smart Scan feature
  • High memory consumption
The newest addition to our software line, avast! Premier goes a few steps beyond our already comprehensive Internet Security. You’ll benefit from our new Data Shredder, for permanently deleting sensitive data from the hard drive, and remote capability improvements that allow you to connect to your PC from remote locations. The new Software Updater feature proactively updates any software you’re using that is outdated and/or needing a security patch. Key features: -Antivirus and anti-spyware engine (our award-winning scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents, now with a new algorithm that is based on machine learning, which can process new-virus data in milliseconds). -Streaming, real-time virus database updates (each virus signature comes to you in real-time via connection to the Avast Virus Lab cloud, rather than needing to wait for a traditional virus-database update. Your database will be continuously updated with latest definitions). -File reputation system (now with more than a billion unique fi les in our cloud, avast! FileRep lets you know whether a fi le is safe before you open it – determined in part by how many people have the fi le and how new the file is. The technology is also used internally, to help the scanning engine make more intelligent decisions). -Software updater (keeping your software applications updated or patched should not require that you proactively check each one, yet for many users this is the only option. Our Software Updater feature shows you an overview of all your outdated software applications, and updates them to prevent security vulnerabilities). -Browser cleanup (this new tool serves as a maintenance center where you can delete pesky and unwanted toolbars and plug-ins from your browser). -Silent firewall (our firewall stops hackers, using heuristic and behavioral analysis and a white list of safe applications. It offers improved logging for better details/stats, and supports both IPv4 (standard) and new IPv6 networks). -Behavior Shield (our Behavior Shield determines – with greater precision – whether any running processes are displaying any unusual behavior). -Antispam (comprehensive spam and phishing fi lter, which works also as a plug-in to MS Outlook and a generic POP3/IMAP4 proxy for other email clients – now with better reporting functionality). -Avast! Sandbox (provides an extra layer of security for you to run your applications in a virtual environment – where any attacks are thus contained instead of attacking your real PC). -Accessanywhere (now you can set up one or more PCs to be controlled remotely from another location, so that you’ll have constant access, no matter where you are. The device from which you access your PC or network needs to have avast! software installed, but it does not need to be avast! Premier. However, the PC that will be controlled needs to have Premier installed and AccessAnywhere configured). -Data shredder (our Data Shredder erases fi les permanently, so that they cannot be restored using traditional recovery methods. Technically, files are deleted using the random overwrite, DoD, and Gutmann methods. If you ever want to sell or give away an old PC, this is the best way to ensure that your sensitive data does not go with it).
