Hello =SKY=!

FileHippo's download images for all of the version 8 releases point to the current Avast, not the historical ones.

Because of this I gave you the following link: ;)

Here you can download older versions of avast!:
http://www.oldapps.com/avast_antivirus.php
You are right, but davofanmail got the info from drake127 in Reply #4 - so he tried this source first... ;)
But just for Information:
BOTH download sources (filehippo and oldapps) gives you INCORRECT files!!!
Because installation file of avast! Free V8.0.1497 has a size of 125MB!
filehippo: 84,7 MB
oldapps: 81,3 MB

@davofanmail: If needed, you can use my link of avadas.de (distributor of avast! products).

Thanks for the detailed procedure,Sky...lots of ways to do it wrong, you've found the way to do it right.

I'll try that process if v6 fails for some reason.

OK! :)

Best Regards

Ooops! :o

I didn't know this. Sorry! :'(

A long time ago I downloaded an avast!-file from oldapps and this was absolutely correct.
Because of that I thought, that oldapps is a good source for downloads...

Must be about time to move out of the stone age and update those systems I thinks ;D

Don't be sorry, we are here to help each other. :D
I was interested in your download sources too - and then I found the incorrect files.

Have a nice weekend!
