Updating the first post should bump it to the top again as the content has changed and considered unread. So no need to keep bumping.

Well for you I don't think it will change as you 'have read it' when compiling it.

For those coming in and using the 'Show unread posts since last visit' option then that modified post will have been unread, so it should have moved.

Obviously I can't test that either as your new post (not modification) would have also been shown in the 'Show new replies to your posts' option.

A ride to the top.
 
Obviously, all the senior members put the details of first post in threads to show clean install but hopefully seeing thread for those can save some trouble.  Besides the first post......which is really combination of many other folks (not me).....there are other good inputs in this thread.
Anyway, think worth keeping this alive/visible for awhile.

Well the on-demand scans don't require an Internet connection as far as I'm aware, or where would those off-line systems be if the wanted to do a Quick Scan.

During my most recent clean install (with internet enabled), what happened was (at the 'now will launch quick scan' stage) that avast! opened my browser to http://www.avast.com/en-au/lp-pt-welcome?utm_source=prg_ise_90_3&utm_medium=prg_lnk&utm_campaign=free2paid&utm_content=prg_ise_en-au_welcome-page&p_var=.%2Fprg_ise%2Fen-au%2Fwelcome-page&p_elm=83&p_lex=0&p_lid=en-au&p_lng=en&p_lqa=3&p_lqe=1&p_lst=3&p_lsu=36&p_pro=2&p_bld=empty&p_vep=9&p_ves=0&p_vbd=2013&p_hid=04f7446b-61be-41e9-a2c3-7e51697470bb&p_ram=4012&p_cpu=7.5

Seems a bit unnecessary, to me, besides, I always thought it a good idea to be offline while uninstalling one antivirus and replacing it with another.
And, anyway, it still didn't launch the promised scan.

Seems latest build has several issues which may require Clean Un-Re-Install.
Wanted to send thread back to top.

I suggest that you review your information. Sending it back to the top also includes a review. :) Some things have changed, one of the video's comes back with a "no longer available" message.
