I know that the developers of avast! have to have differences between Home Edition and Pro Edition, but for me this is important to choose a program...  ;)

 :D

If see my first post in this topic you will see that I only make a question, know I'm only saying my point of view!

What is the problem with that!?

I'm not saying that the avast! Home Edition is a bad program, I'm only saying that I prefer the programs that have a better configuration. But if the program is freeware, we can't complain them, are not...  ;)

The simple fix is to buy the Pro version of avast! ... if the Home version does not have the settings you would like.    ;)

I'm refering to the freeware version of AntiVir!
I like to have a program with a very good configuration...

Well, are you talking seriously?
AntiVir has so few configurations available... big update files, not automatic, lot of false positives... I use it like a backup (second, non-resident) scanner but avast is much, but much more configurable than AntiVir.
In this particulary case, you're touching the 'differences' between Home and Professional version, never a lack of configuration hability.

I'm not saying that AntiVir PE is better than avast! Home, I'm saying that I like to have a program that I can config everything...

Ok, me too  8)
So, you agree that AntiVir only allows this option and avast not.
But avast allow tons of others and not AntiVir.

But, of course, in every system or program will be un-configurable things, un-tweakable...

A simple annalogy:
You to Avast>  I want what I want when I want it.

Avast to you>  You'll get what you want when I've got it!!

That about sums it up. :)
