Avast Antivirus 4.8.1169

Posted on Wednesday, April 02 2008 @ 13:16:46 CEST by

avast! antivirus Home Edition represents the best antivirus protection available and is available free of charge for non-commercial, home use. It is designed to protect your valuable data and programs, as well as keep itself up-to-date. It also comes with the kind of built-in features that many vendors charge for additionally, or don't include at all such as anti-spyware, anti-rootkit and strong self-protection. Simply install and forget. To download avast! antivirus Home Edition for free, click here.

  • compatibility tests with Vista SP1 and XP SP3
