Wow, that means that 75 Million have / are using avast, and only 59k have registered on the forum for help.

I guess that means that a LOT of people don't have any questions / issues with the software?

Pretty good...  ;D

Hi Alwil Team,

Blessed be the day that I did find avast, and it kept me secure over all these years, and their forums also taught me what I know now about anti-malware procedures and that is quite a bit and the insight is still growing, plus as an additional bonus I have made some beautiful malware fighting friends here.
Yes, avast brought me quite a bit virtually, and it is worth every bit and byte of it,

Thanks Avast,

When I get my Vista Premium system next Wednesday avast! is the first thing I will install after Vista SP1.   8)

When I get a bit of spare money after needed things like rent and food I will purchase a Professional license.

Wow!  I just received a pop up notification:

I guess I'll forgo a couple of visits to my favorite restaurant and splurge $67.72CAD on a two year license.

I am sorry, but is it correct for me to have seen a kind of pink popup from avast that was like the update notices.

I know it seems strange but I was on the telephone with my bank at the time because I had trouble logging into my bank account online and then that popup came on and I thought I saw avast something, a million something and I wasn't focused enough, so I clicked it thinking I'd get that little explanation window I usually see from avast and then continued with the phone call. After I hung up it hit me there was no explanation window and as I had just been trying to log into my bank account I thought maybe it had been some very, very clever scam and that somebody was trying to install a leylogger through some weird method.

So here I am and now I do see this congratulations business and am thinking what I saw was a legit avast popup. It was, right?

I'm just real paranoid and it was a coincidence it popped up when it did, right?

By the way, congratulations are in order to you avast folks for work done well.

And thanks to anyone who can set my mind as ease on that pink popup thingy.

My popup was orange, and it was an information-popup (INews) like YoKenny said, about that avast celebrates 75 million users, so you don't need to be worried.

Yep, orange sounds right. That's great. Thank you for confirming that. Real weird it popped up when it did. Especially as I'd never tried to access that account before using the Net. Just my luck to have that kind of weird timing to happen. Really, I'm a magnet for weird things. Probably because I am weird. Haven't been here in a few years, either.

Anyway, thanks a million, Bluesman. Make that 75 million thanks!
