I think you are in for a long wait ;D as you will have seen from the topic I created some time ago (what does avast scan on boot http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=14062.0).

Bob read your PM, I know exactly what's causing your problem... and it has nothing to do with avast! this time. Windowblinds screwed up few system files on your machine. I have had similar problem almost 2 years ago, and the only thing that helped was format and complete reinstall of Windows and all programs. That's why I don't want to play with those buggy customizing programs any more. I wish I used to make system backups back then, it would save me a lot of time and spare me of a unbelievable hassle, but we learn from the past...

DavidR, yes you're right... it looks like we will wait quite some time for these answers. I know Alwil guys are unbelievable busy, but still, we are such a long time in here and I really trully believe our voices should be heard... we try to help many people in here, but we also need help ourselves sometimes... best of all, we are not trying to sound speaking bad about avast! It's just we want all those things to be solved, so avast! can stay on the top of our list of most useful programs ever...

We're just trying to help ourselves and Alwil to correct those issues ASAP. Are we asking much ?

I went to NOD32 because i got 1 year license for free. An offer you cannot refuse.
Considering NOD32 one of the best AVs ever designed.
After that who knows, i know i haven't left avast!. Have no intention to leave it, the same goes for AEC. I've even submitted brand new Mytob worm to Alwil first and then to others few minutes later. But i like NOD32 too so...

Do you have suggestions for making the detection and submition process better?

The idea of getting an avast! Pro license for free for forum regulars would be really nice... It's not like I'm crying for it or anything like that (btw I already have it), but sure it would be very nice from Alwil's side. I mean if forum regulars (members who are quite long time in here) have that much time to unselfishly help others for so long time, it would be really nice gesture from Alwil's side as well. I don't think this would be something that I'm the only one who think it would be great, it looks I am the only one who brought it here in the public. If that what I'm asking is too much, then my true apologies...

Cheers !

My personal feelings on giving the Pro version to forum regulars for their help is, basically I give help because Alwil gave me the free product and I like to see people get the best out of it, not for a reward.

If all the regulars had the Pro version how long would it be before they lose touch with the Simple User Interface if you are using all the extra functionality of the Enhanced User Interface of the Pro version. I know that after a year or so of using win XP Pro I had virtually forgotten all the tips and tricks for win98.

I'm glad I bought my own liscense.
That way I don't feel any pressure or obligation when I have to complain (bitch, moan, groan) about something. ;D ;D ;D

Well that's your personal opinion David. I didn't say REWARD, not even once... take a look at my reply again.

I simply said, nice gesture for the nice gesture. Remember one thing - literally thousands of people are users of freeware avast! version, and not all of them (not even, 1 tenth) are helping in here nor even got an idea to come here and try to help other people, so do not mix those things please.

Now after those words you said, I'm looking bad because I said something I said... I'm sorry but I see it that way. Best of all I haven't asked anything for myself since I have Pro version already. And that I also mentioned up there... here in this reply of mine is perfect explanation what I really meant.

Thank you

My mention of the word reward is more along the lines of, if it became generally known that those regulars who help would be given a pro license, some might see it as a reward/target, they may even thing you got yours free ;D So ignore my mention of the words 'not for reward' and that may change the overall tone.

You needn't feel bad for mentioning it you aren't asking for yourself.

David, you know our time worth more that the license price. Even Alwil team is surprised about what we do here in forums. Isn't it Vlk?
So, I won't call reward or anything related. In fact, I'm here because I've got friends, I love to help, I respect avast! free version as the best antivirus round... After all, they (Alwil and other 'old' users) deserve it. The ones who can't understand it, well, this forum isn't their place  ;D

Well basically I've got mine for free from Alwil guys and wonderful Eda Kucera. They think it's not for free just because I made all those numberless skins and often helping in this forum. But sure I never asked for it. It just shows their respect towards me and everyone else who did something for them and this community. That's why I asked maybe it would be real nice gesture. For sure they wouldn't go broke just because of few licenses and that news would ring all over the internet. Another good publicity, and there is nothing like they are bribing someone or something like that... it's just they respect their helpers and contributors in this wonderful forum...
