That option is not available to you, it's also unlikely to be deleted due to others being able to have their say.

Can you lock this topic??

Only Avast Team Moderators can lock a topic.

If no one keeps responding to it, then it drops down the chronological order ;)

Why lock a topic that is sure to have additional news once we get to the middle of August?

It's a bit shock to see the company we loved so long get bought out...

Norton acquired Avast and is official.
Thank you and good day!

Great.  Now I need to find another antivirus program.  I want nothing to do with Norton ever again.

And I'm sure you're not alone.  ;)

Whilst I have never had any Symantec, Norton products, I have certainly avoided them.

We will just have to see how things progress/regress over the coming months.  It would be strange/stupid to kill the goose having bought the golden egg.  We will have to see how much independence/autonomy/control the Avast Brand has, it would be madness to try and change everything.

Jumping the gun before the horse has even left the barn makes no sense.
Until the changes that will occur have been plainly spelled out, speculation appears to be running ramped.
Hold your horses: Avast is still working well as it has for many years. For me, it will continue to protect
my systems as it has since 2003.
