What I would like to see besides more rootkit protection would be a portable and bootable USB version. I would settle for just a portable version that you can run from a USB thumbnail drive.

Maybe a more compact GUI. It still looks whooping big---covers almost three-fourths of a 15 inch notebook screen. Resizing, however, is quite a drag with the scroll bars. It's just a minor problem, though.

I also would like to see a GUI tweak. I want a Windows 7 theme option, so the GUI matches the rest of my apps. I don't want "skins", just a native W7 option.

If it can trigger sand box for unsafe url then It may be treated as useful
Url ???
You're messing processes with urls... The process is what is sandboxed.

Avast needs some UI refinement and integration with Windows 7's UI features such as Startmenu Jumplists

I would like an option to have Avast use the default Aero Windows 7 Skin.

Also less Memory usage and even better protection so Avast can be the number 1 ranked AntiVirus would be great :)

'Native' UI look (the same as windows), no out of place skins.

More compact UI, that doesn't require half of my screen to show something that would take only 1/10 of the screen in other programs.

And now to remedy the biggest UI nonsense - Scrap groups in Firewall!

I would like to see support for WHS 2011, and an upgrade on WHS v1 to Avast! V6, been long time since we didn't get an upgrade on WHS v1 (Dec. 2008?) Feels like we are left behind again... Am proud Avast supporter for WHS product and Pro edition.

Thanks,

Claude

Not in the poll above, but I would like to see, the possibility to save restore the websites entered in the siteblokking section.

 Almost forgot, put removable media scan (not just context menu scan) on right-click of a removable media. It's quite a pain when I have to do a 15min+ context menu scan of a 16 GB external harddisk when I can actually invoke a minute of removable media scan--it's just that it's buried in the UI that makes me not to. Yes, laziness, I know.
 Or better, rename it to "Flash Scan", "UltraQuick Scan" or something similar to clear the confusion that it's not something that's entirely associated with removable media that you should only scan your FlashDisks using it.

MINOR: Change the tray icon. The orange ball is outdated. avast! has a new logo for almost a year, I believe it's better to use the new lymphocyte thing--to establish a trademark.

I agree to you also.

Yes I would also like a change in UI.
Other will be low memory usage, more feature like creating bootable disk right from avast itself.

-Robust behavior shield
-Improved protection against rogue applications and their websites
-Avast needs to block access to more malicious websites in general

an option to export settings, separate FW-AV!!!

FW-'ask' default, a bit strange having this at 'auto-decide' after install

remove everything 'orange' from the UI and the forum, please, or give me a choice, orange is not a colour its a fruit  ;)

make the poll in this thread multi choice, I have too much to moan about  ;D
I'd like, but now is not possible to make this change.
but I added one more option:
All options above.
keep saying what you would like to see in avast.
thanks..

I would like to see a feature added so a user can save their settings and then use them in a reinstall.  This would save a lot of time and eliminate having to configure everything including Scans when you reinstall from the Installer.

Avast needs less memory usage

Also we can't forget Sandbox, it makes old hardware "Stiky"!

As a novice user, yet very curious and learning, might I add the ability to make our selections for setup of the "Xpert Settings" for each of the "Real-Time Shields" where repeated settings will go to the next tab, just the need to verify they are carried through.

Maybe in the "Scan Now" area when doing the "Settings" for each be done the same way so we can reduce the amount of time required to get it up and running for our selected protections.

If this is not clear enough just ask and ye shall receive.

Excuse me, just thought of another, the ability to resize the width of the columns in reports and/or logs plus reorganize them so the empty ones are at the extreme right side.

The view of the "Unable to Scan Some Files" report will not allow any selected action to be accomplished.

I'm not sure what i would like to chance in avast. I like it how it is but some new security features would be nice. and meaby 10-15 ram lighter in ram would be a plus if the could make that to. But its using what around 45 ram now thats really good.
