    avast! Free Antivirus will help you protect your Mac from all kind of security threats. avast! Free Antivirus comes with a Web Shield that will scan the websites opened in your browsers, the downloaded files, Java scripts and more, without slowing your Mac’s performance.

avast! Free Antivirus is also able to scan emails via the Mail Shield feature. The File System Shield analyzes opened files and running apps in real time, so potential infections will be stopped before spreading.

Here are some key features of "avast! Free Antivirus":

· On-screen alerts

· Web Shield, Mail Shield, File Shield
· Automatic virus definition updates
· New GUI
· On-demand scanning: It's possible to scan the whole file system, network volumes or a mounted removable volume. You can also run a custom scan. Scan reports are automatically archived and are accessible from the GUI at anytime.
· On-screen alerts: Alert messages are displayed on-screen whenever a threat is detected.
· File Shield: The File Shield scans the binaries of started applications and all files at the time they are modified.
· Web Shield: The Web Shield monitors and filters all HTTP traffic coming from web sites on the Internet. Connections from your web browser are redirected to the Web Shield module. The Web Shield in turn connects to the requested web server and while downloading the content, it simultaneously scans it for viruses and Trojans. Only clean data is delivered to the browser, all malware is stopped before it gets saved on your Mac.
· Mail Shield: The Mail Shield monitors and filters all POP3 and IMAP traffic coming from mail servers on the internet. It does not prevent saving of infected files (doing so could lead to irreversible data loss), it just detects them. The File Shield prevents any infected attachments from causing harm to your system.
· Automatic updates: The scanning engine is automatically updated with our regular VPS database updates.
