Hallo,
thanks for your opinion - of course, commandline is the best thing in the world. In bare Avast4Workstation, use "avast" instead of "avastgui". In the fact, it's a thin wrapper around the cmdline "avastcmd" application (which is part of avast4 server package, but isn't license-dependent, thus is free).

Btw. there's also "avastlite" client for the avastd daemon (also from avast4 server package), but this daemon needs license.

regards,
pc

Terminal is hard to use if you don't know the commands. Like me...  :'(
