What is the avast! Gadget?


The avast! Gadget is an information panel for Windows 7 and Windows Vista showing the actual protection status of avast 6.x and your computer, i.e:
-SECURED - Your computer is fully protected, everything is up to date and running as it should be.
-ATTENTION - Your computer is not fully protected, for example, if the program or your virus database (VPS) are not up to date, or if one or more of real-time shields is currently turned off.
-UNSECURED - Your computer is not protected at all, most likely because all of the real-time shields have been turned off.
...and it also allows you quickly:
-Access to avast! user interface.
-Switch to avast! SafeZone.
-Perform a program and VPS update.
