What is going on here Avast Team ?
I used to make my income removing virus's and malware.
Now my clients are asking me to remove Avast.

Its a funny world.
Ironical as it is, a large proportion of my income is now removing avast. I guess I should be thanking avast for this but....  ?????

Cant you read or something ::)

UPDATE your clients avast program version and make them understand that every program will have problems sometime or the other they cant avoid going out without a AV.I disagree with you as even I install avast on client's machine but before doing that I make some things very clear with them!

Avast team has already acknowledged this earlier,see here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=122132.msg931756#msg931756

Well,if there a problem with the program you put on their machines,you shouldnt be charging them because I myself dont ::)

Dont expect avast team to come to this topic and give you a special apology,they have better work ::)

@ true indian
You could not put it more politely and quietly? Irritation and rudeness will never help in work and debate.
May the FOSS be with you!

Hi George Yves & true indian,

Why do we have to take this serious. "gerrynz" never posted here and this troll came over from MBAM forums.
Dear troll you have lost my respect also...
So treat it for what it is and "Do not feed trolls, they are only out to evoke damaging controversy".
Be wiser, leave it, and see it for what it is just trolling!

Polonus, Can you please justify your above quote.

With your Avast Überevangelist status and 17500 posts a lot of people will see you as a human face of Avast and believe what you say.
But when you fabricate statements like this, you and Avast will lose respect.

Three more clients in the last week, telling me they have been fooled into downloading and paying for the commercial version. Hence my original post:
Your commercial engineering tricking the average mum and dad computer user into downloading your commercial version is a viral tactic.

Avast team, the best way to screw a business is to lose loyalty and you are doing that now.

Hi gerrynz,

It is how you present yourself in this thread. It is not factual, it is not seeking to go  into a discussion or seeking facts, it is just "accusational". It is typical how a troll would present himself. Post something in such a style as to arouse as much controversy as could be. You are not nice to others, but demand to not be treated likewise.
You take a haughty stance from point go with "Avast you have lost my respect" topic, leaving it hang in thin air and then respect to get friendly reactions and repectful answers.
Always expect to be treated the way you treat others, that is a good point to learn to behave in a more decent and more humble way and this will bring you far more in the end. And therefore you did not understand my rather ironical reply in the thread. Do I have to explain further?

Now this really IS funny / ironic:

They are threatening to TAKE FURTHER(?) ACTION.

I've been begging them to take some action - any action to fix this problem - to no avail. Once one of the forum queens feels it has been dissed, I get some reaction. You girls need to get out more. Or learn how to write proper software. Or understand how to provide customer support.

You couldn't make this up.



You have received a warning

gerrynz rather than just ranting on why don't you try giving some specific details and explain the process in which the problem is occuring
