@ chronoboi001
Well avast isn't a firewall and is only checking a very limited subset of ports, those commonly used for exploits, DCOM, etc... So a firewall is an essential part of your system security.

You may be disappointed as it looks like the avast firewall will initially only be available as part of a suite. But the avast anti-virus should still be available as a stand alone download, for those of us that like to choose individual security products.

Why would I be disappointed?

As long as I can download Avast AntiVirus 4 or 5 as a stand alone download I will be happy :)


I just do not need a new firewall :)

Use, at least, the Windows firewall for inbound protection.

Yeah good idea you should got like Free version anti virus (maybe stay that like that but its you) + Paid Anti virus (like heuristic and behavior.....) + Avast! 5 Internet Security (with firewall and others)

And maybe to add a green area and neutral and red for the guy that wanna ignore or something.

Its my opinion i have let you know i hope i gived u a good point

Don't Grisoft offer something similar, these days?
You want Avast to be like all the others?

Not me! No way!

If v5 does have a firewall I hope that it can be turned off.

I'm currently using Comodo suite with the AV off and Avast! as AV, as I feel that Comodo's AV isn't yet mature (and probably won't be for a year or two), so having the choice would be best.

I like the way that Avast! stops some web sites (although I'm not sure that enermaxusa.com is really one!) and I don't know if Comodo does that.
