Protecting over 200 million PCs, Macs, & Mobiles – more than any other antivirus

Spy shots of the new avast! 6.0

The new avast! 6.0 was spotted at the Prague Café Imperial this Thursday.

The “Additional Protection” features in the 6.0 version are more difficult to photograph than the art deco ceramics in this  historic Prague hotel.

Other pictures of the new 6.0 are available here. Or, go to the ‘About Us’ tab on the avast.com homepage and click on ‘Media materials’.

The new version of avast! antivirus program is at an early beta stage, currently going through a barrage of tests to uncover any potential issues and bugs. According to AVAST sources, a near-complete beta suitable for reviews should be released by mid-February. AVAST has  not given a specific release date for 6.0.

All three versions of the beta 6.0 can be downloaded now at the avast! Forum.  However, developers stress that this is a test version and should not be used for antivirus protection.

    hola felicidades avast software por cierto como una idea por que no desarrollan como una estadistica de grafica de los 10 virus mas detectados por el ordenador que usa avast antivirus es decir si por decir algo asi como en el sitio web de ustedes que hay una lista de los 50 mas detectadso por el antivirus en 1 mes por ejemplo bueno seria algo parecido pero en ese caso se podria emplear de 2 maneras 1 una grafica con sus estadiscas de los 10 virus mas detectados por 1 semana mes o año
    y una desfcripcion de los mismos y la otra que sea a nivel global en comparacion con los demas usuarios y usuarias que utilizan avast seria una mejora a tomar en cuenta o un nuevo desarrollo para avast 6

    lo otrocuando liberen otra nueva beta de avast 6 seria bueno probar no solo con google crhome sino tambien con opera y otros navegadores el complemento qaue se parece a wot

    y tambien como una opcion en el menu del mouse donde aparece analizar tal cosa con avast que mas abajo tenga la opcionde mover al baul y que cualquier archivo que sea movido por el antivirus y por el usuario al baulde virus se envia esas muestra automaticamente para su analisis en su laboratorio

    por cierto avast 6 tendra analisis con la nube ademas ya se puede programar las accioness en e analisis programado del inisio?

    je suis utilisatrice de avast free antivirus, mais je voudrai dans la mesure du possible que vous me fassiez parvenir la clef de série (avast 5.1.889.0) car lorsque j’ouvre mon ordi il y a une croix rouge sur l’icone orange dans la barre
    en bas et je dois manuellement activer votre sigle qui me signale ordinateur non protégé !! en appelant ADWIL la petite icône se met en marche – je suis nulle – mais je ne comprends pas car je n’avais aucun problème avec AVAST 4 – Pourriez-vous m’aider SVP. Je vous en remercie par avance
