Prague, Czech Republic, September 10, 2009 -- avast! antivirus software has earned the “Compatible with Windows 7” logo after successfully completing Microsoft Corp.s’ testing regime to prove it can be readily installed and run reliably on Windows 7.

“It’s important that our users know avast! is fully compatible with Windows 7 from the very beginning,” said Ondrej Vlcek, Chief Technology Officer at ALWIL Software, makers of avast!.

Microsoft’s “Compatible with Windows 7” logo can now be used with Avast! version 4.8 software. The logo will help Windows 7 users easily identify software and other products that have passed Microsoft tests for compatibility and reliability with Windows 7.
