I received the above from download.com today. I have not downloaded this version. The version I'm running is 4.8.1335. My question is is this the same version I am running now?
I figure if I don't ask the question I will not know.
Thanks

 download.com  does show that   4.8.1335.90414  is the latest version of Avast.

But, I just tried to do a manual update of Avast and it says I have the latest version.(4.8.1335).

This is an odd one, Maybe someone from Alwil can explain this.

I think the numbers were appended by download.com and maybe should report to 2009.04.14, date it was added.

Actually, the number means the date of the VPS file embedded in the setup package.

The latest program version is still 4.8.1335, and if you let avast update its definitions automatically, you're up to date.

Thanks

From:
"avast support center - ALWIL Software"

Thank you for contacting ALWIL Software company with your concerns.

My name is Michal and I am happy to assist you today.

>Is the version below a new version or what I have installed?

No, there's no new version, as you can always check here:

http://avast.com/eng/avast-4-home_pro-revision-history.html

The "new" version is "new" because it has new virus database inside.

9If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me again.
