After having read and still reading about the problems a lot of people are having with 2006 and 2007 I'll just keep using Avast 8 for another month or maybe longer.  :)

Well, that's up to you anyway. ;)

My post in no way recommended waiting to update. It actually states that updating went smoothly

Since it isn't closed, I'll reply. If I were you midnight, I'd wait to upgrade. I made the mistake of not making the program update setting, let me know. But then, even if I had, because I've never had a single problem since first getting and using Avast, I'd of probably just upgraded anyhow. But had it happened that way, or with the way it happened anyhow, I think I'd still be regretting it and wishing I still had version 8.

Why? because for some reason, when it first upgraded, as it always has, I couldn't get on the internet. Mozilla Firefox, v25, it wouldn't open at all. IE (forget exactly which version but whichever it was it was up to date and it don't really matter because I don't use IE. It's just on the system and I've never bothered removing it), but IE would open but wouldn't go anywhere. I couldn't navigate to anywhere. Just opened a blank page (FWIW, a blank page because as I said, it's not my default browser so I never set it to anything). Finally, had to have a friend come over and after looking things over and me explaining what all happened, he disabled all web shields and then enabled them again. All seemed fine so he left.

Next time I logged on, could get FF25 to open but it wouldn't go anywhere. Disabled web shields and then enabled again and all was fine. Long story short, this kept  and keeps happening. So, after I get fed up, which didn't take long, I got on my smartphone and searched the issue. Saw people were having all sorts of issues, other then mine, but the consensus was to repair or do a clean install.

So, I tried the repair first. Long story short, didn't help. So I uninstalled avast and reinstalled after rebooting after each. This seemed to work. Until computers, both the desktop and laptop, of which both are running Windows 7 ultimate with all and most recent updates.

On both, I am still at times having to disable and then re-enable web shields just to get certain pages.websites to open/work properly. Even on/in these forums, I'd be researching this issue or issues in general with version 9, be checking out a thread and get to the end of page 1 and click on page 2 only to find it won't open. Low and behold, turn off web shields and it opens. Then re-enable web shields yet again. Only to have things work for a while until it happens again.

So yea, if I were you, I'D WAIT TO UPGRADE!!!

And even though I've stated my issue here, to warn you, I'm still going to start my own thread in the hopes someone will be able to help and help me resolve it. But only after seeing what helpful replies, if any, this post will/may bring.

And to those who may reply, please keep this on mind. Not everyone is a computer builder, techno geek, computer wiz and whatever other terms are used for people in the computer this field. Some of us are just users. And some, like me, are just users able to resolve most issues, and learned to do so from having to resolve issues. My biggest problem is when the same things happen more then once and the time between them was sufficient enough to where I know I resolved it before I just don't remember what the hell I did. lol

So, in advance to any and all replies, thanks much in advance.

P.S.
What a pain it is to have to do and go through the verification process each and every time I post. Don't know if this is an every post thing or if it's just me and those who don't have many posts and or are newbies? Either way, what a pain. I'd think verifying my/the registration process through the link sent to me and in my email would be enough to not have to do this.

P.P.S.

From the last time I disable and then re-enabled the web shields and the time it took me to type my last post, before I could get it to post correctly/post at all, I had to friggin' disable the web shields yet again just to get my post to post. I click post and the tab just sits there with the circle indicating it's trying to do something. Getting very old.

Oh, and by the way, and I shouldn't have to do this, it seems as long as I keep the web shields disabled, things work how they should. But again, it shouldn't be that way and I shouldn't have to do this.

I am a user just like you.
Have you tried a repair...Control Panel>Uninstall a Program>double clickc "avast">click "repair">reboot

More often than not a simple repair fixes issues.

Also any other security software on your system?
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

To Para-Noid..... Repair was the first thing I tried/did. Didn't help so I then uninstalled and re-installed. And yes, I rebotted after uninstalling and re-installing. Which I believe is also what people call a clean install? And as I believe I've previously said it, the latter worked until the desktop was turned off and then turned back on the next time. And it worked on the laptop until I closed the lid and opened the lid the next day. Desktop was turned off and laptop was put to sleep (what closing the lid does/is set up to do).

To marc-d-l...... For both the desktop and laptop it's the same and the OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. As for firewall, windows/avast firewalls. as for spyware/malware programs, windows defender and anything else that's part of windows or avast. Other then that, I'm not using any spyware/malware program. Truth be told, with Avast, never felt I had or needed to. As for what avast version, on the laptop it's currently 2014.9.0.2008. Desktop isn't currently on but I'm about 99.9% positive it's the same version.

And to Marc and or anyone else, with what I've listed above, with version 8, it all worked GREAT. It only changed when avast updated to version 9.

And again, I I couldn't get mozilla firefox v25 to open from the icon try or anywhere else unless and until I disabled all web shields. Once it opened, I turned them all back on. Then I tried logging into my email and couldn't. Googled avast forums, wouldn't search. Once again, disabled web shields and low and behold, could log into my email and google avast forums and get here. I did the disable for 10 minutes. I'm sure because I'm trying to answer all questions and give all information for you or others to hep, 10 minutes will have gone by and they'll have been turned back on. In fact, let me check? Yep, back on. And so I don't lose what I've typed, and because I know it won't post unless I do, I'm disabling the web shields again so this will post.
