Home vs Pro
« on: October 14, 2003, 02:35:38 AM »
From what I see on page http://www.avast.com/i_idt_1018.html and in the new Avast! 4.1.280 red X-es are missing!

Strange, I've downloaded the file at 9 Oct 2003 and the providers were there. At least, if the user download the PRO version and choose not install the specific files of PRO, i.e., install all HOME version, I get the providers and they were working as an HOME installation.  ::)

asfdem, shgoh....

It appears that the chart is clearly in error.
Avast 4.1.280 Home will install 5 modules including P2P and Instant Messenger.

The differences between Home and Pro are sutble.
As you can see, Home does not provide Script protection whereas Pro does.  With Home, you can add a 3rd party program such as AnalogX Script Defender.

In addition, the Pro version allows the user to select which of the On Access modules they wish to install.

The Pro will allow the user more advanced configuration than the Home.

BUT BOTH PROTECT EQUALLY WELL!

If you are a set and forget type of person, I would recommend you stick with the Home version for now.

but if your like me and always want to putter around with things...then go for it!....Avast Pro.

Sorry we'll fix this. But I don't quite understand WHO took the x's away - they were there, for sure... ::)

Kind words, techie101. Thanks a lot. But, if it is not too much to ask, could you help me boost my karma a bit? ;)

I think that the page http://www.avast.com/i_idt_1018.html was completely reviewed and seems to be ok now. Some options has disapeared  ::) but I think always is correct now. The behavior of Home and Professional version seems to be the same as when they was released on version 4.1  ;)

That's great, but in the post just above yours, I was talking about Avast! 4 help file. If I'm right, the help file needs a review too!   ;)

Yes, you're right (I mean, this is what is written on help files). Maybe Vlk could confirm this... Although, I think that except scanning CAB files, the others are just PRO version features.

Please, igor, if necessary, do any changes in translated files too  ;) Thanks.

OK, I'll fix it.
The CAB scanning seems to be wrong; not sure about the rest, however... isn't it OK?
