The free Avast Version 8 antivirus offers more features than ever before. Avast released version 8 of its antivirus software recently, which includes major user-interface changes and new and advanced features for both free and paid users. Besides the touch-optimized starting page, this security software now also brings some more intelligent tools such as Browsers Cleanup and Software Updater.
The Software updater informs the user automatically when the software installed on your PC is no longer the current version. Avast then downloads the update automatically, after which you can install it manually.
The browser security Webrep has also been improved with the new version of Avast 8. The free add-on for Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera protects more reliably from dangerous websites and search results on Google. It also scans toolbars and add-ons for different browsers such as, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, and shows a reputation rating for each. In the premier version you can also find a new data shredder feature which lets you efficiently, peramnently and securely destroy files, important drives and partitions which you no longer need.
The new AccessAnywhere tool in the premier edition lets you fully and remotely access your PC from your other computers running any edition of Avast 8 anywhere in the whole world.
