  1. Avast (www.avast.com) has updated its Vista x86&x64 antivirus to v4.7.981 for
    both home (freeware) and pro ("payware") versions.
    Changelog:
    April 14, 2007
    fixed extra-long duration of the boot-time scan under Windows Vista
    WebShield: improved compatibility with Windows Vista
    WebShield: better support for HTTP method CONNECT in upstream proxy scenarios
    fixed a minor memory leak in aswrdr.sys
    auto-updates now use much less CPU resources (should not interfere with
    other CPU-intensive programs running on the computer, e.g. games)
    added a new unpacker: "installers"; useful especially for detection of
    malware droppers
    Outlook/Exchange provider: improved compatibility with Outlook 2007
    boot-time scanner: fix for the case when there's the /NOGUIBOOT option in
    boot.ini (or BCD on Windows Vista)
    fixed a problem in Standard Shield under Windows Vista related to saving of
    Word 2007 documents on FAT partitions
    email alerts now use correct formatting even for non-Latin characters
    fixed a rare problem in Standard Shield related to handling of disk volumes
    mounted to NTFS directories
    further enhancements in executable unpackers
    fixed a bug in ZOO unpacker (special thanks to Jean-Sébastien Guay-Leroux)
    task scheduler: it's now possible to specify which days of week the task
    should run
    command-line scanner (ashCmd.exe) now supports a couple of more command-line
    options, mostly related to handling of infected files
    mail scanner: improved deleting of entire emails (virus embedded in email
    body)
    fixed opening of the sounds settings dialog under certain operating systems
    avast! screensaver now available even under Windows Vista 64-bit
    better detection of corrupted/modified VPS file
    WebShield: other minor fixes
    added Macedonian, Croatian and Portuguese (not Brazilian) language packs
