Hi cindyswain89,
Unfortunatelly I have to say that your version of macOSX is not supported anymore. Currently we support 10.9+, previous Avast Mac AV supported 10.6+. The AV version for 10.5 is very old. And it doesn;t receive new virus definitions anymore.
If you are on 10.6 then you can find the older version at
Quality is also a feature.
