I saw one, but it was so brief I couldn't even get over to my computer to read it-just saw the color pop up and then go away.   Didn't know what it was until I read it here.  Another example of Avast! being inobtrusive.  :)

When starting avast it usually has what I would believe is a splash screen that contains a scan before Avast actually runs. In this screen I now see an extended part on the bottom that says:

Yeah. It's there, thanks. Although, no popup for me.

I was feeling kind of bad about some of y'all not getting a chance to see the popup which sent me into a panic attack, but got me back to posting here. Then a short time ago a new one popped up of the same colour and texture, so I grabbed it for all you unfortunates to view.



Now you know what you missed. Well, this one is a little different, of course. But just imagine the other text and you've got the idea.

Hi ManyQs,

I have a question ;D
Why is it that you try to set a point size in your posts ?

The only reason I ask is that it fails every time.

To keep on-topic, I saw the extension of the special offer iNews pop-up this time ;D

Hi ManyQs,

It's the empty space I set when I post messages on my site and a few others before and after my message, but the first time I tried to do it here I noticed it didn't work, but thought it looked kind of interesting as it was, so I left it. And kept on using it.

It's just a style thing, I guess you might say.

Actually, this is the first site where I couldn't find tags for either "white" or "0" to produce a blank top and bottom. Ah, maybe the first site. I may have forgotten if I am a member on another Simple Machines forum. I probably am and because my RAM on my shoulders is so low, I forgot.

Anyway, a long answer, yes? Sorry about that.

Congratulation to the avast! team and alwil software!   :D

Like Polonus and others who have posted above, I have gained much knowledge and made many friends through my use of avast Home and this forum. Thank you for this and the best antivirus service!

75 million users is quite an accomplishment. And, as a thank you for the many years usage of the free Home version, I am now a proud user of Pro for the next 2 years.    :D

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:
http://www.avast.com/eng/celebration-75mio-registered-users.html

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

I signed up but I was only offered the 1 year license for $43.

Using Vista is like learning a new language but this old dog can still learn a few tricks yet.
