The ultimate in personal computer security.
Automatic updates of your software: Most virus and malware threats exploit security holes in outdated versions of popular software like browsers, email clients, etc. As it’s bothersome but vital to update all those programs manually, Premier does it for you.
Access your computer over the Internet: You can connect to your Premier-equipped computer even when you’re on the other side of the globe. The AccessAnywhere feature allows you to view your desktop and access your files from any computer in the world that has any version of avast! installed.
Military-grade permanent deletion of your sensitive files: It’s easy for someone to recover deleted files from your hard drive or portable drives. Because of that, you may want to use a secure method to purge your sensitive data (bank statements, photos, etc.). This is exactly what Premier’s Data Shredder does on a military-grade security level.
Make your computer a data fortress: Your private data shouldn’t be available to anyone but you. So the silent firewall in Premier blocks hackers from stealing sensitive personal data from your PC. This new version was rebuilt to make faster decisions, work even better with Windows, and fully support IPv6.
Say "Goodbye" to spam &phishing scams: The majority of spam includes harmful ‘phishing’ links built specifically to exploit your PC or credit card data. This type ofphishing email tries to convince you it’s from a legitimate sender. Our anti-spam technology filters out such nuisances to save your time and protect you from potential headaches.
Did it break? Fix it!: If anything nasty happens to your computer and some malwareblocks access to your avast!, you fortunately were able to create an image of your avast! setup on a USB stick or CD/DVD ahead of time, which will help you restore the PC to its normal functions.
Secure your financial transactions: Prevent having your credit card or online banking data hacked and your money stolen. Use SafeZone, a Premier feature that secures sensitive transactions. Set your favorite banking or shopping sites to automatically launch SafeZone to ensure that all of your sensitive financial transactions stay private.
Intelligent antivirus, anti-spyware, & anti-malware: Not just a marketing phrase! Our DynaGen-powered antivirus streams hundreds of tiny real-time updates to your PC’s virus database each day, to catch newmalware faster. Its decisions are based on artificial intelligence that works inside the algorithm responsible for analyzing suspicious files.
Run shady files in a virus-proof environment: Unsure if the file you just downloaded is safe? Run it in the Sandbox, a virtual environment where you can run even the most heavily infected files safely. But you’ll know if it’s safe anyway, with our FileRep (file-reputation scanning) technology.
Our crowd in the cloud: avast! CommunityIQ is one of the world’s fastest signature-basedmalware data sources. This early warning system is based on data from tens of millions of our customers who – anonymously – share any new pieces of malwarethey encounter.
You need at least Windows XP (with SP2) installed. Windows Vista, 7, 8, and even 8.1 are fully supported (unless your device runs the Starter or RT edition) in both the 32- and 64-bit variant. A 10-year old Pentium 3 processor will do, with 128 MB RAM and 650 MB of hard-drive space. And now imagine the stellar performance with your new hardware!
