Strengths:

The Avast! 2014 sandbox is the real deal. With a single click of the mouse you can completely isolate the browser from the rest of the system. That means even if you download a virus in the sandbox your system stays clean.
FileRep lets you know whether a file is safe before you open it. The safety is determined by how many people already downloaded the file and how new the file is.
It runs extremely fast and does not slow down your machine. In fact Avast! ranks 2nd out of 21 different antivirus suites in an independent speed test study at AV Comparatives.
