I don't know who to turn to. I have avast antivirus home free edition downloaded and working well (I think). 

HOWEVER, I have an 'Alpha Antivirus' program that 'popped up' on my computer screen, supposedly did a scan and notified me that I have 42 severe threats to my computer and that I need to download Alpha Antivirus immediately to the tune of $70-$90 depending on what program I choose.

Every time I go to my internet explorer, the screen changes to 'about: blank' and a message pops up with 2 choices:  to install their product now, or, continue with unprotection and severe threats.  I keep deleting.  found their website, tried to contact them and couldn't get it to work; tried their address as they listed: info@internetsecurityinc.com and it comes up as an invalid address.  My question to you is: Do you know how I will be able to get rid of this whole alpha antivirus mess?  the scan by avast indicates that all is fine....can you please direct me to someone out there in computer land that I can complain to or report....or at least get rid of their infomation?  AND, HOW CAN A COMPANY JUST COME ONTO MY COMPUTER LIKE THAT????  THANKS.  a happy avast.com customer; snibbets@roadrunner.com...have a nice day!  :)

1. Please start a New Topic of your own as this seems unrelated to the original subject and will just confuse the topic and we will try to help. 
- Go to this link, http://forum.avast.com/index.php, scroll down to the Viruses and Worms forum and click it, click the New Topic button at the top of the list and post there.

What ever you do don't allow it to run a scan or visit any site it suggests or pay as you could be properly infected. This is rogue/scamware.

Do not contact them all that does is give them your email.

2. I suggest you remove your (all) email address from the post unless you are partial to spam.

I have a virus on my laptop that won't allow virus software to be downloaded. Is there a way to put the virus software on a jump drive so I can clean my laptop?

Hello sue91156,

 It would be better to start a new topic about your problem in the viruses & worms section of the forums.

 Thank you for your cooperation.

You should find out who Skype used for that voiceover work and hire her for your app. Love her Brit accent!!

All joking aside, actually wasn't a joke....you should!! Great new look and functionality. Much thanks!!

Moonraker,

You can leave windows defender on your computer... Doesn't affect Avast in my opinion.

Better to ask questions like this in your own thread though, not one that is about announcing the "Avast Team Blog".
For generic computer (not avast) problems, you can also visit my forum for help: http://www.jacobytech.net/forum

Other than when avast happens to detect its unencrypted virus signatures it deposits in memory.

So where do I look for fixes to AV version 5 issues? I can't connect to the internet with it installed using XP, but the free version does? I need answers for the money I spent? how do I get customer support?

Here, in forums is a good place. Start your own new thread for it.
Also you can try support (at) avast (dot) com

Why not create a section where we can submit undetected samples (malware) by avast!? I would love to upload files through this way, because I do not feel safe doing it through email or through avast! chest. Something like Microsoft Malware Protection Center.

I don't really see how your question is related to this topic.

However, you are entirely safe submitting samples through the chest (a protected area). Though at this moment the 5.0.507 version of avast there is a problem submitting samples, this is resolved in the pre-release version 5.0.544, which should be released soon.

I wouldn't get an avast licence from anywhere other than through official channels as you never know what you might get. No slight intended this user has been on the forums for one week and his first post kind of contridicts his offer.

i have got a key but not the licence file can any one help me how to insert the key in the file plzzzzzz
