The ultimate in personal computer security.

Automatic updates of your software

Most virus and malware threats exploit security holes in outdated versions of popular software like browsers, email clients, etc. As it’s bothersome but vital to update all those programs manually, Premier does it for you. Read more  ›

Access your computer over the Internet

You can connect to your Premier-equipped computer even when you’re on the other side of the globe. The AccessAnywhere feature allows you to view your desktop and access your files from any computer in the world that has any version of avast! installed.

Military-grade permanent deletion of your sensitive files

It’s easy for someone to recover deleted files from your hard drive or portable drives. Because of that, you may want to use a secure method to purge your sensitive data (bank statements, photos, etc.). This is exactly what Premier’s Data Shredder does on a military-grade security level.


Make your computer a data fortress

Your private data shouldn’t be available to anyone but you. So the silent firewall in Premier blocks hackers from stealing sensitive personal data from your PC. This new version was rebuilt to make faster decisions, work even better with Windows, and fully support IPv6.

Say "Goodbye" to spam & phishing scams

The majority of spam includes harmful ‘phishing’ links built specifically to exploit your PC or credit card data. This type of phishing email tries to convince you it’s from a legitimate sender. Our anti-spam technology filters out such nuisances to save your time and protect you from potential headaches.

Did it break? Fix it!

If anything nasty happens to your computer and some malware blocks access to your avast!, you fortunately were able to create an image of your avast! setup on a USB stick or CD/DVD ahead of time, which will help you restore the PC to its normal functions.

Secure your financial transactions

Prevent having your credit card or online banking data hacked and your money stolen. Use SafeZone, a Premier feature that secures sensitive transactions. Set your favorite banking or shopping sites to automatically launch SafeZone to ensure that all of your sensitive financial transactions stay private.

Intelligent antivirus, anti-spyware, & anti-malware

Not just a marketing phrase! Our DynaGen-powered antivirus streams hundreds of tiny real-time updates to your PC’s virus database each day, to catch new malware faster. Its decisions are based on artificial intelligence that works inside the algorithm responsible for analyzing suspicious files.

Run shady files in a virus-proof environment

Unsure if the file you just downloaded is safe? Run it in the Sandbox, a virtual environment where you can run even the most heavily infected files safely. But you’ll know if it’s safe anyway, with our FileRep (file-reputation scanning) technology.

Our crowd in the cloud

avast! CommunityIQ is one of the world’s fastest signature-based malware data sources. This early warning system is based on data from tens of millions of our customers who – anonymously – share any new pieces of malware they encounter.

Cost-effective multi-year licensing

We value our customers and want to reward those of you who plan ahead with a 2- or 3-year license. Don’t forget to check the special prices above.

Yes, your PC can run it.

If your PC can run the full version of Windows 7, it can run Premier. Period. But if you’re buying it for someone else, you may still want to check the system requirements.

System Requirements

You need at least Windows XP (with SP2) installed. Windows Vista, 7, 8, and even 8.1 are fully supported (unless your device runs the Starter or RT edition) in both the 32- and 64-bit variant. A 10-year old Pentium 3 processor will do, with 128 MB RAM and 750 MB of hard-drive space. And now imagine the stellar performance with your new hardware!

The most popular antivirus family!

Security protecting millions and millions of people

Now that we protect over 219 million active users on all inhabited continents, we are thinking of expanding to Antarctica. Negotiations with the local penguins are under way.

Over a quarter century of computer security that works

In 2013, avast! celebrated 25 years of success. In all that we do, we’re committed to earning our customers’ satisfaction and trust. And our customers’ loyalty gives us motivation to innovate and drive security to new levels. Should avast! ever not meet your expectations, remember that all our products and services come with a 30-day, no-question, money-back guarantee.


Experts frequently certify and award us

We hate bragging, but we can see you insist! We get awarded and certified often, by numerous independent, industry-related organizations and testing agencies. They praise us for the virus detection capabilities of our software, as well as for not slowing down your PC.

Automatic Software Updater

Secure your computer. Save time.
Get the latest version of your apps installed automatically.

Old software contains holes. Patch them.

Hackers exploit these security holes using viruses or other malware. The older the software, the bigger the holes.

Most antivirus software is just retroactive.

Premier leaps ahead of most antivirus software, adding proactive measures to your protection.

Updating your PC applications is like cleaning house.

It’s time consuming and annoying, but you know there was a reason your mother wanted you to do it.

So why not leave the chores
to someone else?

Unlike a brother or sister, Premier’s automatic Software Updater does everything for you.

Your browser is obsolete.

1. On 8 April 2014, Microsoft stops support for Internet Explorer browsers running on Windows XP. This will put your computer and data, such as credit card and online banking details, at greater risk to hackers and malware.

2. Several browser alternatives exist, but we at AVAST use and recommend Chrome, as we find it to be the most-secure option available.
