Vlk (avast global moderator) quotes on some features:
SiteCorrect module for the detection of unwanted websites
Try typing something like avats.com to the address bar of your browser...

avast! Emergency Update
A new feature -- allows us to push out critical product updates in case of some big issues where the main avast service is not able to start / crashing.
Such situations, till this new version, meant the user had to reinstall avast as there was no way for us to fix such problems from remote.
With this new mechanism, we can push out fixes even to such issues.
