Hi,

it is my pleasure to announce the general availability of avast 4.8 (the exact build number is 4.8.1169).
All the details can be found on our website (www.avast.com)

Thanks
Vlk

P.S. If you have any issues with the new build, don't post in this thread. Instead, start a new one.

Question is:Is it better to have an integrated antispyware-antirootkit-AV integrated or to have them alone? In terms of "HIGHER" EFFICIENCY I mean. You may say as long as it does the job but would a standalone be better in detecting malware? ???

Ppl say layered defense is better. I call that BS. It's the tech and the way how you protect stuff.
I don't know how good anti-spyware is in avast! but anti-rootkit tech is top of the line.
