    Lastest version of Avast antivirus

    Latest Version of Avast Antivirus Released

    Lastest version of Avast antivirus-avast-box.png

    WHQL Version: 10.0.2206 (free version)
    Release Date: October 21st 2014

    Note   Note
    Available through program update option.

    Avast 2015 (10.0.2206) Free Antivirus Download Page
    (Click on Download, and the No thanks, I want free protection option)



    Release History


    Here is the list of major changes/improvements:

    HTTPS scanning
    Ability to detect and decrypt TLS/SSL protected traffic in the Web-content filtering component. This feature will protect you against viruses coming through HTTPs traffic as well as adding compatibility for SPDY+HTTPS/ HTTP 2.0 traffic. You can tune/disable this feature in the settings section.

    AVAST NG
    A hardware based virtualization solution capable of running each Windows process in standalone safe virtualized environment (VM) and fully integrated to your desktop. Each process is executed in its own instance of VM, which means totally isolated from your other applications. This feature is now powering the Avast DeepScreen, resulting in better detection. Avast NG requires HW virtualization enabled.

    SecureDNS (this feature is active in the paid versions only)
    A new provider which guards against unprotected DNS/DNS hijack on a router/client (including unsecured networks, public ones, etc.).

    Home Network Security
    Scan your home network for vulnerabilities (wifi status, connected devices, router settings, factory passwords, etc.). It helps to discover potential problems not isolated on the particular device only, but in the entire network of devices you use or connect to the Internet from.

    Smart Scan
    Integrated all on demand scans into one (Antivirus, Software updates, Home Network, GrimeFighter). One scan, different results and recommendations.

    New Support System
    Easy contact for paid users to submit a ticket with all info included automatically. Improved knowledge base for free users. Help is completely online and is more up to date.

    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.
