By default the program is offered to update in the 7 day window. The program is not automatically updated.

Thank you, I updated it.

So, now in this version there's a rootkit and a antispyware (even if I didnt see them it seems  like before)..

But..

What's a rootkit?

You don't see them as they are integral to avast.

When you need to know, ask a friend, like google, which returns many hits, this is the first, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootkit.

They're present in Home and Pro version.
In Pro version you can 'see' them and configure them.

Hi there. I've got a very strange trouble with new 4.8 avast Home edition. I've updated to it from 4.7 version. After system boot up I discovered that Nokia PC Suite 6.70.20 (Nokia cellsphones manager) installed on my destop won't work any more. I can't connect my phone to PC properly (it's doesn't see it now), can't load any nokia application from PC Suite tray applet... I've tried to add Nokia folder to exclusions (for resident scanner too), but it doesn't act..

After that I uninstalled 4.8 version and PC Suite worked correctly (as always). My next step was - downgrading to old 4.7 version (PC Suite worked perfectly with it before). But... Disappointment again. After 4.7 install I got freezes on system loading (2-3 min pause) and after that avast resident monitor is unable to work with RPC fault...  I've tried to clean avast installation with last aswclear.exe program and install after that, but it doesn't help.

In the end I have 2 variants:

1) working avast 4.8 with disabled Nokia PC Suite (this application is very necessary for me)
2) disabled avast 4.7 with working PC Suite...

I need some help with this mess..

Hi and thank you for this wonderful AV.
I have not used Avast for a few years now but i have recently become disillusioned with Kaspersky and the slowdowns it causes.
Avast is running very light on my system with no conflicts, false positives or slowdown in browsing.

Top notch software. :)

No one playing WoW should upgrade to 4.8 unless they want the keyboard headache of a lifetime.
