I had this screenshot twice now, first i was told be someone in the forum to get a screenshot and i didnt i just closed it. And not its come back. Why am I getting forced, I thought avast free and avast one are two different things. I hoep someone in the forum can address this, because according to the image I am being forced to avast one.

I dont understand why avast free anti virus is forcing me to update to avast one, I do not want avast one, I am happy with avast free. Please can someone address this. Thank u

Is your Avast Free Antivirus close to annual renewal  ?

I know the bloody thing is free and shouldn't technically need renewal, but every year we get this bun fight about renewal of Avast Free, its a pain in the backside.  Personally I feel it has nothing to do with renewal more an opportunity to suggest one of the Avast Paid products.

I suspect this is a similar thing to this and your image is for a 30 Day trial of Avast One after which you would need to pay to retain the paid functions or drop to Avast One (Free).  So you don't want that either, don't click the Update Now or the Remind Me Later, as you will get bugged later.  Use the big X in the Top Right of the window. to kill it.

It would be a little more gracious if there was a No Thank You button!

Hmmm, maybe it wasn't released to all users in all countries (yet).

U said "I suspect this is a similar thing to this and your image is for a 30 Day trial of Avast One " THIS IS incorrect, as it clearly says on the image My avast free is going to be updated in days AND it includes free 30 days, so this is a forced update to avast one, and i want to know why? I dont want avast one

Those who have responded in this topic (other than the topic starter) are avast users just like you, this is also why we ask questions to get more information to try and help.

My reasoning is this could trigger this popup, in the same way that it previously pushed Avast Premium, that is what I meant by similar.

Thanks Asyn. I must do this as I do not want this issue to have implications for 'normal' performing PCs.

P.S. Job done.

how do i install the old version, 22.5 and 22.6beta it will affect the Android emulators to freeze and BSoD and cpu100% what is interesting is the pc run 20-30 mins avast he will start to break, this is a blind spot till i uninstall avst my pc everything works fine.
I need the old version, no matter how I install it, it will automatically update to 22.5 i'm pretty sure the older version is fine for Android emulators 22.5 is the beginning of a nightmare

When I updated I had windows asking me about my network settings, whether I should allow access to the PC from other places on the network. I selected yes, as advised (it was a windows 10 menu). Never had that before.

Thanks Asyn. I must do this as I do not want this issue to have implications for 'normal' performing PCs.

I've noticed this slow down problem too and I'm on a 'normal' performing PC.

Everything seems to take a few extra seconds to load.

I use FF too (I noticed the reply to your post on the other thread). I wonder if its something connected with that.

Edit: I've noticed loading up the Avast GUI takes 23 seconds.

I was looking at the update menu and only the program version displayed at first. I thought you'd removed the virus definitions part . But it eventually appears 5 seconds later.

I'm not sure what you've done with the program. But it's not running as well as it could be. Have you added something on as default?

Edit2: I've noticed when I open the Avast GUI it uses a lot of CPU power, upto 48%. Only when I close it again does it drop back to normal levels.

Repair Avast:
1. Avast GUI -> Settings -> Troubleshooting
2. Click on 'REPAIR APP'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.

If repair doesn't help, start a new thread and provide details.
