Avast Premier Features:
Change bad habits like storing passwords on your browser, or reusing the same password. Avast’s new password manager creates unique, unbreakable passwords for all your accounts – yet only asks you to remember one.
Open any suspicious sites in SafeZone, or use it for your financial tasks. SafeZone is a secure, isolated space where no one can copy what you type or steal your banking details – so you can shop, bank or pay your bills in total privacy.
Improved Home Network Security
Even better protection, for everything on your home network. Avast 2016 detects 12 more types of router vulnerabilities so you can keep your printers, network drives and routers fully secured – in just a click.
Automatic Software Updater
Stay ahead of hackers – automatically. Find out as soon as there is an update to the software you’re running, and patch any weak points before hackers have a chance to attack.
Don’t let anyone see the files you deleted; get rid of them for good. Data shredding is the only way to make files truly irretrievable, so you can keep your privacy, even when you sell or lend your computer to others.
DNS hijacking is real. It’s far too easy to accidentally type all your login details into a replica of your banking site. SecureDNS encrypts the connection between your PC and our DNS server, so you don’t fall for any fakes.
If your PC goes with the full version of Windows 8.1, then it’s definitely compatible with avast!
You need at least Windows XP (with SP2) installed. Windows Vista, 7, 8 and even 8.1 are fully supported (except Starter or RT) 32- or 64-bit. A 10 year old PC with Pentium 3, 128 MB of memory and 500MB of disk space will go smoothly with avast.
