Avast Pro Antivirus is for people and companies that want a customized computer security package. Antivirus and internet protection components in Avast Pro Antivirus are built for easy integration with existing firewalls in users' home or work computers. AVAST is a world-leading software developer when it comes to fast and effective antivirus solutions designed to fend off malware attacks while sparing system resources. It features four editions: avast! Free Antivirus, avast! Pro Antivirus, avast! Internet Security and avast! Premier. Pro Antivirus has two major additions to the core protection elements in Avast Free Antivirus: the Script Engine and the Sandbox.

The Script Shield and its script detection engine stop malware at the point of entry- web browsing activities. The Script Shield watches scripts executed in the operating system and scans scripts (both remote and local) run as a part of a web page. The Sandbox lets users test suspect files in a safe virtual environment and insulates the real computer from damage caused by active malware. Apart from the previously mentioned SafeZone feature, Pro contains SecureLine to ensure data privacy via VPN, a sandbox to run suspicious applications confined in a secured virtual environment without doing any real damage to the computer, along with a rescue mode to boot Windows in case it becomes unresponsive due to heavy malware attacks.

These features complement the increased efficiency of the new avast antivirus and antispyware engine. Memory requirements for the engine have been cut in half and scanning is 40 percent faster, saving both time and computer resources. Complete rootkit protection includes real-time detection to ward off initial installation, on-demand scanning and boot-time scans. The user friendly Avast Pro has a new interface with easy-to-adjust settings, a context-sensitive help menu and graphs showing ongoing protection activities. Users can set the time and conditions for complete scans, with avast even waking up their computer from hibernation for midnight scans before putting it back to bed.

Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
State of the art scanning engine provides reliable protection against viruses, spyware and other forms of malicious software.

Real time anti-rootkit protection
Unique "on access" technology checks all kernel-mode drivers that the operating system is loading for signs of rootkit behavior. This enables even unknown rootkits to be detected and stopped before they can do any damage.

avast! Community IQ
Most samples we process come from sensors deployed throughout the avast! community in the Behavior shield and anti-rootkit modules. This is a unique source of data made possible only thanks to our huge user base. Most of the collected samples are analysed by a number of automated processes and only a small fraction of the samples need to be processed manually by our virus analysts.

New Code emulator
When a suspicious executable is encountered (during both on-demand and on-access scanning), avast! is able to emulate the program’s code in an isolated environment. The code emulator is used for two purposes. First, it is used for generic unpacking. Secondly, it is used in the heuristics engine. Technically, this is done using dynamic translation, a method much faster than traditional emulation techniques.


Boot-time scanner
Allows you to scan your computer for infections before the operating system has started and before a virus can be activated (32-bit operating systems only).

Command-line scanner
Enables you to run a scan directly from the command line.

Wake-up for scan
Microsoft Windows is woken from sleep or hibernation mode, performs a scheduled scan, then returns back to sleep mode.

Scheduled scanning
Allows users to define the scan time and files to be scanned.
