Does Avast have a smart A$$ blocker?
It does and he's been removed.
End of story.  :(

(For Honda2010):

     The penalty may seem harsh, but craig's detailed explanation as to the reason for Aventator's permanent banning from the Avast Forums is completely in accordance with Forum rules.  If you look at the rules in most other major forums like Avast, you will find an extensive list of specific types of conduct which are not permitted.

I happen to be a Moderator at another forum (nowhere near the size of Avast though), and we have 7 simple rules for members to adhere to.  Like the Moderators here, we will permanently ban a member for just the kind of conduct Aventator was engaged in.  The main purpose of most forums is obtaining help and the exchange of ideas in a manner respectful of other member's viewpoints.

Best regards,

** Apologies Bob...I must have posted at the same time as you, otherwise I wouldn't have.  You said it all!

I agree 100% as I'm assistant Admin on a forum. No reason for foul language on a forum but when you've had enough you've had enough. There is one particular person on this forum all they do is have remarks to anyone that post. Most of the time there post are just smart or duh are you stupid. There not saying the stupid part but the way they say things is just ticking people off.

I think this whole thread should get deleted. All the guy was trying to do was say Avast did a awesome job. Then of course people start making remarks who didn't even read it then the BS began.

I think you'll find the original article from the first post was read correctly yet Aventador wouldn't accept other views on the subject, no one mentioned that avast had not done well but the fact there were many other providers missing from the test which really make it a flawed comparison.

And yes this thread should be locked imo.

Man that's harsh. Get banned for speaking the truth. Some folks just cant handle the truth.

He was a rude, thought he knew it all, smart alec and deserved to be banned.

I chose Bitdefender Free because it is 64bit.  If avast! Free was 64bit, I would go avast! Free.

BD free is the lightest and best av.

If avast! was 64bit, it would be the best av.

What's wrong with avast 8.0.1489
I use it on my windows 7. 64 bits and never had a problem.

It doesn't make any difference whether avast is 64 bit or not, on a 64 bit system avast installs itself into the 64 bit program folder and installs the necessary drivers.

BDAVF wasn't to bad when I first tested it but the last two versions have become very high in resource usage and the freezing bugs when trying to open the UI sometimes is annoying, BDAVF also has very limited options.
