Avast 5 - dissapointment
« on: January 26, 2010, 09:51:02 PM »
Dear Avast developers!

Avast 5 final version suck. I am so disappointed. I was using Avast for 2 years, liked it very much. The new version I've installed today is so raw, and it's not even Beta anymore! I am sorry guys, but I'm just too much disappointed, I even think I'll switch to AVG or back to 4.8

Avast icon is not animated, cannot register for more than a year - is a big disadvantage. I am away from home 5 months a year, my wife will not be able to re register when I'm away.
Ugly, uninspiring interface etc, etc..

Bad job! Shame!

I've discovered Avast cannot scan files on my PC, it just freezes! Also it does not manually update itself, I was waiting for 5 minutes for it to download updates - no luck!

SHAME!!!!!!!!!

I left AVG almost 6 years ago and there is no way I would go back.

Use your previous history of avast and either let us try to resolve your problem (which you don't mention) or revert yo avast 4.8 and we can help you with that too if needs be.

What do you meant you can't register for more that a year, it has never been that way with avast Home 4.8 in the past. If avast pro, it is possible to purchase a license

It is much easier in avast 5 to re-register through the User Interface (which I don't feel at all ugly or uninspiring), see image. When the time is due the data on there will allow for re-registering and is only a few clicks away, you may be doing your wife a disservice in thinking she won't be able to handle it.

I've pointed above many of my problems with 5.0

My little orange whirlygig goes round - the scans are fast.  A display is a display - can you find what you want easily ? it is in my opinion easier than 4.8

I know where to find it man. It just doesn't go round anyway, in addition to all other bugs that I had with 5,0

Anyway, it was very hard to switch back to 4,8. PC went crazy. Now with 4,8 I cannot scan separate files, and cannot install any skin.

That does it, I'm switching to AVG now. All of my friends use it, and I see it has nice interface. Hope I'll not need to crack Kaspersky, if AVG is the same s*it as Avast 5,0 :(

I'm not waiting for sorry words, from some German old dude.

Just want to say that Avast needs to be repaired by the programmers, who made this messy 5,0 s*it.

Thanks man! I appreciate your offer. But there are so many bugs, it's really easier to switch to AVG, until they fix all the stuff I've mentioned.

so why do you keep posting ? you've said it two or three times already..."Avast is crap, a shame etc... and you switch to AVG", why do you keep logging in to this site at all  ???

Wouldn't it be better if you encourage the user to try avast! the next time when the bugs are fixed?
