Abuja, Nigeria – Tuesday, February 20, 2007 – Niche Konsult is glad to announce that the latest versions of all avast! antivirus editions, including the free Home Edition which can be obtained at http://www.nichekonsult.com/Partners/Avast/avast home edition/avast_home_edition_windows.aspx now support the new Windows Vista platform (both 32-bit and 64-bit builds).

The new Windows Vista operating system brings increased productivity and dependability as well as many security enhancements. Nonetheless, the risk of malware infection on this platform is still relatively high. Effective protection is a must.


Most existing antivirus applications are unable to operate correctly under Windows Vista. This is because this operating system introduces a number of new features that influence the way system-level programs work (this is true especially in the x64 editions of Vista). The award-winning avast! antivirus product line was recently updated to accommodate these enhancements and provide Windows Vista users with maximum security against all kinds of malware.

With the release of RTM version of Windows Vista to enterprises in November 2006, and the worldwide consumer launch on January 30, 2007 as well as the Nigerian launch on February 20, 2007, Niche Konsult, ALWIL’s Value Added Reseller partner in Nigeria, anticipates massive deployment of this new platform, especially among home users. These users appreciate new features of Windows Vista such as the new Aero interface, enhanced support for mobile computing, and improved full-text search. While the new security, mobility, manageability, and productivity enhancements in Windows Vista Business will help enterprises get things done so they can focus on what matters most. Thanks to avast! antivirus, users can also be thoroughly protected against malicious threats.

 Note: The minimum version of avast! Home/Professional Edition compatible with Windows Vista is 4.7.892. avast! Home Edition is absolutely free and has been installed on over 20 million computers round the world, a single license of avast! Professional Edition costs about N6,000.00 and a hundred licenses can be obtained for as low as N2,400.00 per unit.
