Avast 9 shields
« on: October 26, 2013, 08:59:57 PM »
I've updated my Avast to version 9 and I see only 3 shields now. The update post says that the shields have been redefined. I'm guessing Network and Script shield were combined with one of the 3 in update 9?

That is correct, some of the functions have now been consolidated or replaced by other elements like deepscreen and hardened mode

The number of real-time shields in avast! 2014 is reduced by merging some of them to another. The P2P Shield, IM Shield and Behavior Shield are now a part of the File System Shield, while the Network Shield with Script Shield are a part of the Web Shield.
