160 millionth avast! user registration, Fabricia, will visit Prague for her honeymoon

At AVAST, we not only provide you with free protection, we also reward you for registering it! No, no, we’re not crazy.  :)

You help us immensely by recommending avast! Because of that, we don’t need to advertise, and so we want to reward you even more – e.g., Internet Security licenses, t-shirts, iPods, or a trip to Prague. (see the Winners Section at: http://www.avast.com/community )

And as we informed you several weeks ago, we celebrated our 160,000,000th registration of avast! Free Antivirus.  The lucky person who won is Fabricia from Brazil. When she received an email to her native Brazil that she had won an all-inclusive trip to Prague for herself and a friend, she was of course skeptical, as junk mail scams with surprising  winner announcements are so common these days. But since she had just registered her avast! Free Antivirus she  was curious and asked her brother for his opinion. After a few phone calls and finding the announcement as well on avast.com, she knew it was legitimate.

Best of all, selecting the friend to accompany her was easy, as Fabricia had recently become engaged! So Fabricia’s trip to Prague – from being our 160 millionth user registration – will now also be her honeymoon.

We at AVAST are proud to be a part of it.

According to the Prague International Marathon (PIM) website, “If you like discovering the undiscovered, running alongside a river and meandering through the heart of a medieval capital city, then the Volkswagen Prague Marathon is for you.”

Several AVAST Software team members apparently like those sorts of things enough that they ran 42km in the 2011 Volkswagen Prague Marathon, which began and ended at Prague’s historic Old Town Square on May 8, 2011. Read more…

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. Read more…
