Avast Home and Limited User
« on: August 16, 2009, 11:18:28 PM »
I'd like to install Avast Home for an elderly friend who was just given an 'older' computer ( not sure of the specs but I'm sure it meets minimum requirements)
I'd like to set her up using a Limited User Account and I wondered if Avast works OK as a Limited User ?  I believe I tried it a year or 2 ago and it wouldn't update for a Limited User ?

Thanks

It works OK as a limited user, VPS Updates should be OK, but Program Updates I believe because of their nature require an account with admin privileges.
