How long you are using avast! ?
« on: January 10, 2007, 06:16:54 PM »
Just interested, how long are others using avast! protection. I am with it almost 3 years.  ;)

PS. Very interesting.... Seems I have some kind of "black hole" between my first registration and the second key generated, as it's more than 12 months  ;D ;D ;D Yes, now I remember! It was I time I bought new computer.  ;D ;D These months I lived without computer  :o ;D

I've got a very fuzzy sense (or lack of) of how long since whatever, but that "Date registered" is probably a good indicator -- I probably joined here right after getting avast, for support purposes. Late Nov. 2003, in my case.

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I'd been using avast long before that, on my previous system.  Does "Avast 95" ring a bell with any old-timers?  I think the forums here didn't even exist yet, or maybe I just hadn't yet discovered the marvels of online support.

Intel Atom D2700, 2 gig RAM, Win 7 x64 SP1 & IE-11, Firefox 51.0
(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent

November 2003, when the "free trial" of PCCillin that came with my significant others computer expired and her browser was hijacked. I read some online reviews and made the jump. I have been safe and secure ever since. I have installed Avast! on at least two dozen other computers now and no one has reported a problem to me. I came to this forum just prior to Bob3160 posting his 1000th post.
