Version 6 of Avast offers some advanced security features that give it competitive edge. The SafeZone, available through a mouse right click on Windows 7 desktop is ideal for emulating potential threats in a virtual sandbox. It can also be accessed from the Avast interface itself. Avast also offers the users a fair amount of customization facilities.

Though ti used to be a little bit heavy and somewhat clumsy, we found the new version of BD a lot lighter, faster and with an improved UI. Even with a small RAM, the system isn’t slowed down almost at all, which makes it very comfortable, nice UI, large icons, customizable panels.
BD doesn’t trigger unnecessary alerts and doesn’t bother you almost at all, working silently in the background. If there is a suspicious file, this antivirus will deeply analyze its behavior before removing from your machine useful stuff falsely detected as threats by simpler malware detection or free antiviruses.
We would recommend BD mainly because of overall approach of the security of the system, including backups, prevention, and protection of the sensitive areas of your OS and personal data.
