they already said that 19.1 will automatically install 18.8 on XP you don't need a separate installer

I believe that is correct. The installer will determine if OS is XP/Vista and install the appropriate version. :)

Thanks for the added info Asyn as I was unaware that the 'offline' installer did not offer the same function ???

1. they already said that 19.1 will automatically install 18.8 on XP you don't need a separate installer

2. and if your looking for older versions then use https://filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

I'm already aware of that, the issue is that 18.8 when installed on XP it could cause problems as I have outlined.

I'm fine with looking after myself, I'm more concerned with other XP/Vista users. Whatever is going to be the last versions for XP/Vista should be bulletproof.  I'm tired having to band on about this and I'm getting a sore head banging up against the Avast Brick Wall.

After MartinZ Reply #142, I was hopeful that Avast devs may look again at v18 issues. Partcularly as XP users are stuck with no more updates, or in some cases having to use earlier versions as workrounds.

The safest thing would be to update the OS when ever that becomes a possibility.

After upgrading to version 18.8.2356 I've noticed that webshield would not run on start up. Had to turn it on manually. I did repair and clean install to no avail.
Started PC in safe mode then went to services then located aswbIDSAgent ,right clicked on properties and selected start up type automatic. This worked for me and solved my predicament. Now everthing is fine once again.  :)

Use the online (Stub) installer it will install the last version compatible with your Operating System.

Unfortunately I can't test it. I don't have Windows XP or a 32 bit system.
I'm notifying Avast about your problem.
