I'm worried it is set to medium level like the old one.

being able to adjust the sensitivity is a big plus for me and it reassures me.

Another point not being able to configure the sensitivity it reassures me

and for virus scans, it is configured to look at a file quickly and not do a full check. that disappointed me

it is for this reason that I removed avast one to go to avast free old for waiting for an adjustment

I just prefer to know if my Anti-virus is set on weak mode or strong mode. For so many years they pushed out the product set at medium sensitivity which will let things get through. I never got any notice at all to set it to high strength if I wanted better protection. I had to find out on my own after testing Avast and getting infected a few times. Once I set the old one on High sensitivity, I quit getting infected.

Is it me or does the verification system at the bottom just suck?

I'm still getting used of the new Avast. I wiped my computer to find out I didn't need to. I was so sleepy that I thought I downloaded a fake version and freaked out for a while.

My protection settings have been on default since iaik first installed Avast in 2003.
Never had an infection. We must travel the internet in different circles. :)
