Title: self protection
Post by: venus_n on September 20, 2010, 07:42:54 AM
Does the free avast 5 have self protection.

Is it something like if avast becomes corrupt, you have to run self protection to recover.

Yes it has self protection and if there was a problem that it wasn't repairing on it's own you can always do a repair through add remove program's.
