Wouldn't it be better if you encourage the user to try avast! the next time when the bugs are fixed?
What bugs are you talking about ???
I've installed avast! 5 on countless computers without any problems.
The only problems I've run into so far have been user errors mostly related to leaving partially installed AV on their system.

  Yes u are right it seems AVG, Norton, and ZoneAlarm still in system not completely removed will cause problems. I used the installer Programs found in this forum and used them. That did resolve most problems with my PC and with Avast Pro IS.
  We Have been a proud user of Avast Free for many years and would not take anything for Avast Pro 5 IS. I hope i am naming this correct but i love this av and will never go to any other as long as it is in service and i am still using a PC.
  One PC with XP no problems. One PC with Windows7 no problems. This PC however using XP Media Center Edition, well allot of problems but found it is not Avast. It was related to the Windows updates, and old versions of AV's that were uninstalled but not completely removed. Man what a difference that made, its like a new PC again.
  Thanks to all of u on this forum for your help and guidance through many problems. I was guilty of blaming Avast at first did send DMP logs to Avast, and they did reply  and answer very fast. It was just as the new build was going to be released, so i did as they said and waited and upgraded.
   Wow we LOVE Avast, and Wow we love this Forum and its members

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  ???

He keeps posting because he has no life. No matter what happens some folks just have to be negative on everything on the internet. Usually it is the same guy who yes dear's his wife before she finishes what she wants to say.

Just a quick story on avast. I work at a college, not a major one but a college. I asked the networking guy about AVAST about 4 or 5 years ago and he said he used it on his computers in the networking room. I guess school admin’s think you have to pay a lot for an AV program but my friend ran his own show in networking. Soooo me being a real smart guy figured I would try AVAST in the adjunct workroom before I put it on my machine at home. I downloaded AVAST and installed it at work. Dagone machine had the audacity to lock up. So I looked up my buddy, (networking guy) and said hey, that computer in the workroom is locked up, what gives? (didn’t tell him I installed AVAST) Next day I ask him what was up with that computer. He said some dumb sh*t installed AVAST without removing SOFOS. I said?? Well I’ll be dipped in sh*t, some people. I made sure I got rid of Norton before I installed it at home. Worked great and still does. 5 is working great too.
