Nous vous avons déjà parlé d'Avast, ce logiciel antivirus gratuit qui n'a pas à rougir face aux solutions payantes du moment.

De plus, ce logiciel en français reste peu gourmand en ressource machine et les mises à jours se font automatiquement.

Le voici disponible en une nouvelle version 4.6.691 avec son lot de corrections et d'améliorations, comme :

  • further improvements in executable unpackers (WinExec)
