This whole Grimefighter and childish Karma points scoring needs to be pulled from the program, Grimefighter has caused nothing but problems on users systems and then the customers have to also deal with trying to get their money back at the same time as repairing their messed up systems, modules such as Grimefighter are really unnecessary and just another poorly designed marketing tactic imo :(

Update from 2201 to 2202 - fighting with Security Center not recognizing avast! at all :D And what is "8 karma" near my email in the interface? :D

I saw this too.

I wondered what it is.
I do not have Grime Fighter installed as someone stated that it might be a part of that program.

karma - some kind of valuation of user's usage of avast!. This is from translation file. I guess it's still not fully implemented so there's no real way of telling what it actually does (where you get points from) :)

I do not know if it's a translation error but how come instead of logout is this?

Another anomaly, if I scan the network ok by me as security without any problems, but if I do the smart system scan tells me that there is a problem in the network that is not yet able to resolve

ReJ,just nailed it!! If it ain't going to be there (dyna-gen) then why advertise it?

So far in my test,I have seen only like 2 detections from NG.I dont expect this to change in RC version either.So devs please tell us about this?? Where is this NG and dyna stuff going? Is it going to be actually functional and effective with malware detections or just end up failing like it always does.  ::)

The silence from the developers does not improve avast anyways.

 I was having problems with Windows Update not working with Avast free 2015 beta3 but the problem still remains the same with Avast release candidate 1 :(

I started a topic here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=156282.msg1132191#msg1132191 and got some help but to no avail the problem is still there.

I couldn't AGREE more!
However the degree to which Avast listens to the concerns of it's users with most of the issues and I can't help including 3rd.Party tech support here, is and has change drastically over the last couple of years.
I've said this before and I'll say it again, "These things have a habbit of biting you in the ass" in time!!
The childish Karma thing in the GUI imho is a " Bait and Catch" tactic to bring attention to this module.

Grime Fighter Free still broken in Russian.

Why did the program program name was changed to Avast?

UPD: there is something wrong with Home network security in this RC1 build, it didn't warn me about default password on my router.
UPD2: I logged into web interface and did a scan with avast and this time it warned me about weak password...

Because the year isn't really part of the name. Simply check the version number to see if it's the latest version.

You earn Karma with each Grimefighter scan. Yeah!

Each scan earns you points called "Karma," but, as with Jumpshot, there's nothing you can do with these points yet. They do serve to measure how much work the scan had to do, and a scan that reveals a new threat for the program's database gets an extra dash of karma.

I have 10 karma and Grimefighter doesn't even install on my system.

Snap - I didn't like the concept of GrimeFighter - the same as the other optimisation programs. So I left the option checked in a very early beta when it was first introduced as a concept and to gather stats on it.

I have never installed it or run it - and ensure that option is unchecked when doing a custom install of avast. So how I manage Karma points is beyond me. For me GrimeFighter is Bad Karma ;D
@DavidR
Hi!

That's my experience and opinion, too. I got just 8 points. Why?

Karma has nothing to do with GrimeFighter, actually.

It's a new "credit" system where users will be awarded points (karma points) for doing various things inside avast (running scans, blocking viruses, submitting samples, writing to the forum, recommending avast etc etc). It will become fully functional next week.

Thanks
