AVAST Software, the Prague-based company that specializes in the development of security software solutions for Windows, Mac and Linux, has announced that Avast! Free Antivirus version 6.0 has graduated out of Beta and is now available for download as a final, stable version. If you can’t wait, you can get Avast! Free Security 6.0 straight from its developer here .

The internet, as we all know, is home to a lot of threats. To keep those threats at bay we need to get an antivirus program that will detect and eliminate these threats. We shouldn’t get just any antivirus program, we should get a properly good one. The fact that Avast! Antivirus has more than 148 million users worldwide is proof that it is a properly good antivirus product.

Having access to properly good protection does not have to be expensive. It doesn’t have to cost anything at all, as Avast! Free Antivirus has proven many times in the past. This latest version, version 6.0, is better than ever before. As AVAST Software put it, Avast! Free Antivirus 6.0 is “leaner and meaner” than previous version.

To keep threats at bay, Avast! Free Antivirus 6.0 features eight real-time shields and two new script and behavior shields. You can enable/disable each shield individually and play with their individual settings. To offer even more protection, Avast! Free Antivirus 6.0 comes with a web reputation plugin (warns you when you want to access dodgy sites; works with Internet Explorer and Firefox only) and an AutoSandbox (lets you test suspicious programs in a sandbox, in a restricted environment that poses to threat to your system).

From a visual point of view, Avast! Free Antivirus version 6.0 looks pretty much the same as the old version did. The only thing that’s changed is the fact that everything seems to be bigger.



If you would like to get Avast! Free Antivirus version 6.0, here’s the download link again.
