Explanation of some of the new features in Avast
« on: June 18, 2013, 11:34:58 PM »
Fyi... I have recently written a few posts in this thread over at Wilders:
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=348830

I thought I'd retweet it here as some of the questions have been asked on this forum as well.

Thanks
Vlk

This is asked all the time and every time it's the same answer "when it's ready"

Usually major upgrades are released to us at the beginning of each year.

Hi craigb,

I know, I know ...  ;D
Actually, I was clearly referring to :

"I meant v9... but, that may actually be closer than you think. 'Nuff said for now"

Hi Guys,

On the voting / rating feature.

When Avast is telling me that the website I am on "has a poor reputation" and "has a bad rating (based on many votes)" - is this poor reputation and the bad rating, based purely on the votes that we Avast users give?

Thanks!

Chris

Short answer "yes"

Next time can you please ask these questions in the general section of the forum so as to not take the thread of topic.

Thankyou
