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

Avast is popular anyways without the encouragements. I want to point out to the developers of Avast that they need to make homework regarding 5.0 flaws.

You have to understand my frustration. I've been using 4.8 for a long time, and I liked the lack of problems in it. 4.8 made my PC working experience calm and safe. Now I've experienced such bulls#it with 5.0 and I very disappointed.

kidding, giving lessons now ?  ::) why don't you start by giving a few details about what went wrong with your avast 5 install, you didn't say anything interesting from the beginning, and just expressed anger, anger about what exactly if I may ask ??? elaborate, thanks, about the freezing etc...: error messages, bsod, got a minidump file somewhere waiting may be? screen shots! If you don't feel the need to troubleshoot what happened, I'm asking again, why do you bother posting at all ???

Hey, yanto... I'm not dead already.  ;D

Baltic,
everybody here does understand your frustration, we've all been through some frustration whilst beta-testing (at least most of us). But it's true: you were not very polite and you didn't answer the questions or described in depth what you don't like and leads to your dismay. You used strong wording, that's all.

I'm sure that many of your problems could be solved. If you don't like the GUI, well, that's a matter of personal preferences.  ::)

To the evangelists , the guys that you mention are really angry because ,
1) the BSOD are too regular (I did personnally what some are saying, no luck, I even lost a part of my mailbox)
2) I submitted tickets with the minidumps, no answer at all (saying we have well received your ...!!)
As a happy user of the version 4.8 , I bought an upgrade to IS 5

Do you think that we hve to smile or to be happy , the problem seems that Avast 5 is not fully tested that's all

Can I just ask to Alwil to say when they think a "stable" version will be available ?

Hello pbombart...I agree, you don't have to smile or be happy when your computer has become unstable or you're having issues with software that you've used in the past and probably had fewer issues with. I will say to keep watching the forums and wait a bit. BSOD's are quite frightening, and cause you to feel helpless when they happen. vlk and his crew are probably swamped with minidumps right now for sure and I personally believe they are working through as many issues as they possibly can.

Everyone won't get an answer to their problem(s) from them personally at this juncture. Try to hang in there and I too as you will be watching and waiting. If you're able to use the new version at all, try to keep going with it as I am on my test machine. If not, continue to use the 4.8 and stay close.  I'm hoping things will get better...counting on it. ;)

If Avast 5 is working perfect on some P.C.s but not others is it the programme or the P.C.For me,I am lucky because it works perfect.Scans are a lot quicker,I liked the old interface but I like this one more.Its updates are easier and quicker so for me Avast 5 is a improvement on a already good quality programme.If I did have problems with it I would go back to Avast 4.8.I looked at A.V.G.out of curiosity and saw how great a difference there was between A.V.G. free and pro.I have only ever used Avast and that,s the way it will stay.

I would guess that on those computers it is not working right there is a conflict of programmes otherwise why is it working perfectly on most P.C.s.If it were otherwise you would not even be able to log onto the forum because it would be that busy.

no "software" is perfect you know  :-\
but alwil guys are doing their best to improve their product..
a few people facing some problems with their own pcs does not mean avast is the cause   as the majority is really satisfied with it ???

big chances, as I mentioned earlier today and as some users now seem to confirm, that the behavior shield is behind most issues experienced on XP/32. I can only advise again to disable it, or even uninstall it (temporarily until it's fixed) and reboot. This should sort things out for many.

If it is behind most of the problems with XP 32bit I wonder if those affected are using some sort of behaviour/hips processing on their system.

could be...but I don't think so, a big majority of people as you can imagine don't use HIPS, and haven't even heard of that. What I think is that by nature, the behavior shield reacts, very differently on systems, even with the same OS.
