    Avast 2014 R4 (9.0.2021) Free Antivirus Download Page
    (Click on Download, and the No thanks, I want free protection option)



    Release History



    Changes:
    • We've improved the security of the product - e.g security of our processes (guarded by the self defense component), we handle the conditions for the Guest account better, we are very senstitive for any incorrect inputs from the user with a negative impact on the system's security, or, we tuned the import settings functionality not to allow bypassing any protections
    • We've added "resume" support in the setup component, so some of you should notice smoother downloading - depends on a "quality" of your connection (mainly during the program update where the amount of data is quite big)
    • We've included a new antispam library (IS/Premier editions) for better accuracy of our anti-spam module
    • We've put warnings during the installation process if there could be some obvious problems resulting in not 100% functionality after the installation (missing admin rights, insufficient space on disk, etc.)
    • We've added ability to disable promotion popups (in PRO/IS/Premier editions). We strongly believe that our additional products can be valuable for you, but we also respect your will not to be bothered by such offers.
    • We've performed a static analysis of our code resulting in many fixes (but don't worry, nothing was critical, just a small tuning
    • General bugfixing - this covers a lot of stability & performance changes in all components (but the main focus was traditionally on the network & engine components)
