I've installed avast in an old laptop (386) running Windows 95.
But I never had to use VRDB there as I never got an infection there.

to me too , never got an infection
but i wanted to do a test, Build a new database , shut down avast , ran 2 virus , nothing avast was not able to cure!
i tried to cure system files , but nothing!
this is sad , because the others avs are able to clean almost every infection

I do not like that avast is too easy to shutdown, no GUI for imort of new settings. Command line scanner cannot be protected with password. To bad seflsecurity. Need msvcr*.dll has no own.

Now it also comes rootkits, and spywares...

No menu to chose of configuration kind during installation as:
Silent (no popups, autocure)
Advanced (popups on action)

But I like that it is staible, easy to use, nice feature sets, can be used to complete secure computer with blockering of file operations. Screen saver is one of best but interrupting when virus found. Command line scanner is usefull in complex cases.
Good alert methods.

Am I wrong somewhere?
