    Lastest version of Avast antivirus

    Latest Version of Avast Antivirus Released

    Lastest version of Avast antivirus-avast-box.png

    WHQL Version: 9.0.2021 (free version)
    Release Date: June 26th 2014

    Note   Note
    Available through program update option.

    If you already have Avast installed, then you can click on Maintenance, Update, and Update Program to update to the new version. You will need to restart the computer afterwards.




    Avast 2014 R4 (9.0.2021) Free Antivirus Download Page
    (Click on Download, and the No thanks, I want free protection option)



    Release History



    Changes:
    • We've improved the security of the product - e.g security of our processes (guarded by the self defense component), we handle the conditions for the Guest account better, we are very senstitive for any incorrect inputs from the user with a negative impact on the system's security, or, we tuned the import settings functionality not to allow bypassing any protections
    • We've added "resume" support in the setup component, so some of you should notice smoother downloading - depends on a "quality" of your connection (mainly during the program update where the amount of data is quite big)
    • We've included a new antispam library (IS/Premier editions) for better accuracy of our anti-spam module
    • We've put warnings during the installation process if there could be some obvious problems resulting in not 100% functionality after the installation (missing admin rights, insufficient space on disk, etc.)
    • We've added ability to disable promotion popups (in PRO/IS/Premier editions). We strongly believe that our additional products can be valuable for you, but we also respect your will not to be bothered by such offers.
    • We've performed a static analysis of our code resulting in many fixes (but don't worry, nothing was critical, just a small tuning
    • General bugfixing - this covers a lot of stability & performance changes in all components (but the main focus was traditionally on the network & engine components)

    installed it on my xp box and had to be removed via safe mode and system restore, excellent protection as could not use the net or browse any folders, wiped it and installed comodo AV as wanted the licence from Nod32 for the xp box

    no 3rd party firewall or suite due to lagging games too badly, using a decent netgear router

    Been using Avast since AVG failed me miserably. Best AV program I've ever used and glad to see them add anti-spyware and anti-rootkit to the FREE program.
