i don't want to sound too unsympathetic to the needs of the avast team and their families ... but since when did global virus writers comply with the holiday schedule of Prague and its surrounding area?

Indeed. They need to have a way around this. To publicly state that holidays is a reason to leave people unprotected and promote Avast as a professional product is not acceptable in this day and age. The competition would take great pleasure in picking up on this. If you haven't got enough staff Alwil, you need to recruit.

i know.. one way is to employ more ppl and another way is to make things better.. i'm doing some steps to apply the second way (and many other Alwil staff doing the same) and the improvement and speed-up should come soon ;)

Good - and thanks for responding quickly. That in itself is professional and better than most of the competition can manage.

concretely the new sorting engine for incoming samples is "on the test road" (it will help us too much), also new and stronger polymorph detection engine is written.. we're working systematically to eliminate some of the urgent points of your displeasure ;).. many things are not visible to "normal user", but they are in Avast and helping to protect you better (i mean adding of new unpackers etc.)...

Avast now treat ZARAZA.DOC! Virus named MW97:Zaraza-A

Now Subject "Two unrecognized viruses" is wrong...

File http://www.yvs.makeevka.com/files/viruses.zip with viruses is removed.

Thanks again and again to Alwil for high-quality free program.
