« on: November 18, 2005, 07:10:59 PM »
Just I'm not using avast! at this time, as I have another AV solution subscription  :-\ , but I'm not going to leave you: I'm still here ready to help to others, or just spread usefull information. I still with you all!  ;D

Best wishes to all friends HERE!  ;)

It looks like people are losing their confidence in avast! or what ? I mean I've been offered another antivirus (Pro) for free as well and I simply refused to take that offer... I mean, why would I need to try anything else, when this baby does it's job and it does it pretty well. Not a single infection since the very first day I started to use it... since I started to use Home Edition and switched to Pro.

Sasha, you've read my mind. I think the same, exactly the same.
Can you imagine your computer running *** or $&%%# like some years ago?  ;D

Ditto, I can't imagine accepting a free offer of another AV pro or not, when avast is such a configurable, flexible anti-virus that has also looked after me with no virus infection since installation almost a year and a half ago.

If it isn't broken there is no need to fix it.

I generally only go looking when there is something wrong, like when I moved from AVG to avast and haven't looked back since.

I still have a valid license to another AV program but ditched NAV (oops) and after using the free version
of avast! for a few month, paid for the Pro version. It's almost time for me to renew my avast license and even though
I still have a year left on the other unmentioned NAV program (oops) I have no intentions of going back to it.
I'll either purchase another avast! Pro license or use the free version.
I found a good thing in avast! and I don't intend to give it up.  ;D :) ;D

Hello all again. I'm back!  ;D With avast! Only one day with other AV, and I missed avast! very much, so it was good reason to do a clean XP installation, half a day and my PC again safe and clean with avast "wall" in the front. And I can say: other AV's... better don't use them  ;D

You never know how good something is until you try a different product.  Then you say why the hell did I do that  ;D

Any chance of telling us what the other AV was ?

I was visiting today my sister's family. They run F-Secure security suite but from their ISP vendor. Something had happened  ...  the update did not work well  ... antivirus, whole suite was gone.

I did not install  avast for them, but told  ....  no such worries while I have run it.

Bloated security suite propably got messed up with something. Ad-Aware and SpyBot it needed anyways to uninstall :(

It's a secret.  8) I can't tell I was trying to use Norton System Works 2005 with NAV 2005. Opps! Did I said what?  ;D
