While some free antivirus tools are a little short on functionality, that’s not a problem with avast! Free Antivirus 7. A Compatible installation option helps you run the program alongside other security tools, you get strong on-demand and real-time malware protection, new cloud-based services quickly check the safety of files and websites, and streaming updates now ensure faster protection against the latest threats.
But avast! Pro Antivirus 7 offers even more.
The program can run suspect files in a sandbox, for instance, isolating them from the rest of your PC so they’re most unlikely to cause any damage. And that’s a major benefit, as it means that even if you encounter some brand new threat which avast! Pro Antivirus can’t detect yet, there’s still a very good chance that you can avoid infection.
avast! Pro Antivirus adds a sandbox for online shopping, testing software and much more
You also get the improved avast! SafeZone, which opens a new clean desktop that other applications will find much more difficult to monitor. It’s ideal for carrying out online banking or other sensitive activities, not least because it leaves no trace behind once the SafeZone has been closed.
And while sandboxing can be a complex process, avast! 7 Pro keeps it simple, prompting you whenever it thinks a particular file needs to be run virtually. (Although if you’d like more control then there are plenty of manual tweaks and settings available, too.)
Normally priced at $39.99, a full 1-PC, 1-year subscription to avast! Pro Antivirus 7 can now be yours for $9.99 – a major 75% discount. Just head along to the downloadcrew page and follow the links to check out the trial build, or place your order. Make up your mind quickly, though – this offer is time-limited and will expire at the end of Monday March 5th.
