Launching Avast! Pro Antivirus 6.0 - A Complete Safeguard for Your System
BEIJING, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Globalshareware.com announced that Avast Pro Antivirus 6.0 is here again with a much improved Antivirus and anti-spyware engine. Gone are the days when people used to look for free antivirus software for web surfing. The new improved Avast antivirus is loaded with many features and enhanced technologies and is available at minimal prices on globalshareware.com. With the new heuristic engine it will become quite easy to detect undetectable viruses, spyware and other forms of malicious software and remove them from the system.
"The new Avast antivirus is loaded with many key technologies like the new intelligent scanner, new behavior shield, real time anti-root kit protection, green computing, mail shield, web shield and much more. You are going to love the experience once you install this antivirus on your systems. There is a safe zone - a special virtualized area for sensitive transactions like secure online banking. The product we are talking about will not only act as an antivirus rather it will be a complete safeguard for your system", quoted marketing manager of Globalshareware.com
The Avast sandbox will run the potentially exploitable or suspicious programs in a safe virtual environment. Also the real time anti-root kit protection is a unique "on access" technology which will scan all the kernel- mode drivers and will detect even unknown root kits so as to prevent from any potential damage. The boot-time scanner will start scanning the system even before the operating system gets activated and even before the virus gets ready to attack your system.
The scanning aspect is well developed and is much more improved than the earlier versions for better controls and various user-defined options as well. The wake-up scan will awaken Microsoft windows from sleep or hibernation mode to perform a scheduled scan and then return to sleep mode. The intelligent scanner can reduce the number of required file scans by up to 80% through a list of proven safe applications. It will save much time of the user as the files identified as safe ones will not be rescanned unless there is any change.
The new silent/gaming mode will automatically detect full screen applications and disable pop ups and other screen notifications without degrading security. This antivirus will run smoother and much faster on new multi-core CPUs. A new feature of this antivirus is that it can split the large individual files between cores and thus accelerate the scanning process. The best feature is the automatic processing through which the infected files can get processed automatically without even requiring waiting for a user's instructions. So this amazing product should be added to systems as soon as possible to ensure smooth operations and long life of the system.
