Poll,AVAST popularity and credibility.
« on: March 18, 2010, 07:51:11 PM »
avast has many problems in version 5.
If you can not resolve a problem do you exchange avast for another antivirus?

OF COURSE NOt, I won't ever change Avast, I have never problems related to Avast, most of the problems that I've had is because of computer settings but never for Avast.  What's my reason to change?

Yet another totally pointless and off-topic poll ???

If you are having a problem with avast I'm sure you are able to make your mind up without help. If you don't like it you can either go back to 4.8 or try anther AV, that choice is 'entirely yours.'

cako, I'm a relatively calm person but you seem to be quite good at making my heart beat slightly faster whenever I see a new post written by you.

I mean, really, isn't it time to move on? If you just go to your profile and read your last 20 posts, you'll probably see what I 'm talking about...

There are plenty of AV out there to choose from, so if one have incompatibility with
your system, just pick another one and move on. After all AV are just a piece of Software...

If I had a problem with avast! that couldn't be resolved would I move on? Of course. But this hardly seems like the venue for discussing the alternatives.  ;D

I strongly oppose censorship, but even I find this thread to be in poor taste.
