Since that hasn't been the experience for everyone.

Some selected older Free versions.

Bob,
Not quite sure why you have pointed to older Avast versions when the latest version works fine (for most people) on WinXP. I have never had any big issues doing the Avast free version update from the UI. Just the occasional gremin solved after a couple of re-boots.

Not sure how to distinguish "most" from "many" from forum posts. There are certainly "many" posts on other threads from XP users for whom 18.4 caused real problems (UI not loading) that were not solved by re-booting, un-installing, re-installing or any of the other suggestions (including registry fixes). Who knows why some installations of XP have this issue and some do not. Personally, my version is as up to date and functional as ever, and all versions through 18.3 worked fine.  One hopes that the beta 18.5 version will fix all issues. I am waiting to read that an XP user who had the UI issues with 18.4 has found that they go away with 18.5...  Bob linked to older versions so that people could use the program (as I have, now back to 18.3) until fixed.

Never had an issue here on XP PRO SP3 .. But I always do the update using the Full Offline Installer and then select only what I want installed. (File Shield, Behavior Shield, Web Shield and Rescue Disk) ... Everything else is either "pay for" or items I do not really need or want.
Dell Dimension 8200 P4 1.8Ghz Windows XP PRO SP3
Avast Free Antivirus 18.8.2356
Toshiba Satellite C855-S5347 Celeron B830 1.8Ghz

I personally haven't used XP in a very long time. I had these versions available  They are available if you want them. If you don't need them, you can just bypass the offer. :)

Do you have some install kits for PRO/IS version too?
Sorry, I've always used the free version so that's what I downloaded and kept.

the link is for free avast, that's not what claudiuc asks.
older PRO/IS versions seem more complicated to find on the net  ;)
