New version of AVAST Antivirus (build number 12.1.2272), called NITRO Update.
It's for these products: Free Antivirus, Pro Antivirus, Internet Security and Premier.
This update is focused on improving the performance and detection capabilities. We also stopped using the year in product name, as we will be releasing new versions in monthly cycles from now.
We also removed some features that might have been causing problems or not being used by many users in order to make Avast faster and lighter.
+ Lower system impact - faster boot time, less space taken on disk
+ CyberCapture - better detection of unknown and unique files via our cloud technology
+ Regular monthly program updates - automatic and silent, configurable via Settings
+ Improved detection of router vulnerabilities
+ New Bank mode in SafeZone browser
+ Faster SecureLine connection
+ Antispam is now as opt-in component
- Removed hardware virtualization (NG) - replaced with CyberCapture,that has much lower impact on system resources
- Removed Remote assistance - not used enough and not a core functionality
How to install:
