Hi folks,

I hope Sasza is not right with his remark about Avast developing into "bloatware".
Bloatware is suffering from extensive featuritis. But some new features would be very welcome. I would like Avast to be able to catch all hidden rootkits before they run. An API-hook scanner in Avast, we would love it.

greets,

I  have a feeling he is right... I hope that's not the case but i guess we'll just have to wait and see right? ;)

 A new FREE antispam program introduced as a seperate unit to Avast AV developed
by Alwil would become as successful as their AV program.
Windows 10 Pro | Intel I7 CPU | 16 Gig 2133 RAM | Avast beta 17.5.2295 | Firefox 54 b9(64-bit) | Cyberfox 52.1 | T-Bird 52.1.1 | SpyWareBlaster 5.5 | MalwareBytes 3.0.0.865 | WinPatrol 35.5.2 | GlassWire 1.2.100 | Cybereason Ransomfree 2.2.7 |  Pulla-dePlug Final!

I will only post my opinion when Alwil team will be so kind to ask my previous questions...

I think there are a lot of us pondering the reason for the start of this thread.
I don't know of to many companies that put out feelers unless there is something in the wind
and they're looking for responses...... ;D

Wow, ReVaN ... you're a lucky one! But, give it time and once your email address gets around on the web a little while, you'll get some spam and become one of us.    ;)     :D

Actually, I hope you never get any spam!    :)

hi
spams illegal in Australia
i dont get spam
and god knows why..... my email address is everywhere ;D
i used to have Mcafee,,spam killer ,,it was good but tedious and stubborn
and often had to be reconfigured.
I now just have Avast Home 4.6
and spybot which i think has a few spam options
most are just set to the defaults or higher.
its not a bussiness computer so maybe that why i dont get any spam,,actually i got more spam with mcaffe than i do now,,

also i think outlook expess has a spam killer enabled too which is prohably the one im using primarily now.
the block sender is okay for blocking stuff.

cheers


I have a personal desktop 2.8G 512Mb RAM.
Running XP Home edition,IE 6,OE.
I have Avast Home edition  v4.6 and Kerio Firewall running.

I use SPAMSUBTRACT.  I used it for awhile then got a new computer that came with Norton's version.  It did not learn well, or I didn't figure out how to use it.  I have tried TrendMirco at work.  Still use SPAMSUBTRACT there too.  I like the ability to mass delete from the server.

About the bloatware issue,

BitDefender has an antispam function (which works well very well) and uses about the same amount as memory (if not less) than Avast!.

Are you referring to the paid version?
The memory used by the antispam module is the same as whole avast antivirus?  :o

No, the suite package (I didn't use the firewall) is about the same as Avast!.
