    Avast introduced their virtualization sandbox in version 5 of their paid antivirus software, whilst leaving it out of the free version. But the good news is they will now be including it in V6 of avast! Free Antivirus which is good news for all us avast! lovers :).

    Simply put, the virtualization sandbox effectively runs your computer as if it was a 'virtual computer', everything would work as normal of course, but it means nothing is allowed to make permanent changes to your machine so if you weren't able to determine the safety of a particular website or had any other reason to doubt the validity of a file you can put your computer into "sandbox" mode with the confidence that your PC is still safe from harm!.

    Looking forward to seeing it in action :)
