Have you allowed Avast through your firewall ?  What firewall are you using

I have 2 vista Ultimate 32bit PCs, on one 4.7.1074 works fine, on the 2nd PC Security Center does not recogize Avast or Defender.  The 4.7.1096 does not correct this issue, any help appreciated.

THANK YOU!  I installed 4.7.1074 yesterday (I don't know why I didn't pick it up sooner) and immediately noticed that it took a long time for my apps to launch.  I'm now on 4.7.1096 and things are back to normal.

I'm glad you've got that topic posted at the top of the forum.  I agree with someone who posted earlier who said it ought to be in big bold red letters flashing.

I hope one of these beta versions is pushed out to users soon.  Probably many Vista users are experiencing this and don't know the cause.

Thanks again!
