The Avast Internet Security suite is a packaged version of the Avast Antivirus Pro, containing two tools that help avoid threats from the Internet such as Antispam and a silent firewall system that replaces the default Windows Firewall with more options and greater flexibility. Avast is one of the leading antivirus software in the world – with over 165 million users worldwide as of October 2011. As of this writing, Avast! Free Antivirus is on version 6, which was released November 2011; though tracing its origins back to 1988, the first commercially available Avast! Antivirus software was released on 1995, which was also the first antivirus software for Windows 95.
All three editions of Avast include anti-spyware capability, plus anti-rootkit and self-protection capabilities, which safeguards the core components of Avast from being damaged, modified, or deleted by viruses or malware attacks. Central to its host of features is its use of individual modules called Shields (such as P2P Shield and Web Shield, among others) that can be disabled or configured independently, plus such standard features as auto-update, scheduled scanning, quarantine and virus information, and even its own browser based on the Chromium series, which runs on a separate process thus making it “invisible” from the user’s system.
