Avast 5 - Configuration and Information
« on: June 28, 2010, 06:44:57 PM »
I need some Information about:
How Avast works
What the Shields does
What the BehaviorShield does

What does AVAST have that other antivirus don't have
I need some comments from other users what they think about Avast

Can you any of you help me Configure it correctly? Like, against Zero-Day attacks and other.

Cheers to you Avast! I'm glad you are still improving.. i<3avast

avast is an antimalware product that uses virus signatures, behavior analysis, generic and algorithm detection, code emulation and so on to prevent malware in your computer. Each Shield has a particular task in the protection scheme and it's described in the help files.
avast has a boot time scanner (exclusive), a very good update scheme, a strong community, etc.
Let the default settings that your computer is protected.
Get used to avast first, before tweaking the settings.

They're thinking in cloud technology, yes. But it's now a matter of days or weeks... It'll take some time...
