If you don't speak German, just read the titles, they're almost the same as in English.
Way to go, avast!

It is good but not really news;D

Seriously, Avast rated surprisingly well in regard to rootkits.  FPs were not so good.

This is great news.  I loaded Avast free on my daughter's laptop last summer just before she went to college and she hasn't had an infection yet.  Such test results confirms why.  Avast is just plain good and it works very well with Vista Home Premium.

There are a couple of topics relating to version 5.0 (so a forum search should help), the features are however, not cast in stone, but it will be very well worth the wait.

avast! is in ongoing development for version 5.0, but who knows we might well have other program updates before that. One thing for sure if you monitor the forums, you will find out here 'first.'
