Avast 4 Free Edition
« on: April 12, 2010, 02:57:49 PM »
Hi Guys

This is my first post and hello to everyone, i have 2 questions to ask here for help.

The first one is i still have a desktop of 10 years old and running Windows Millenium
with the avast 4.8 free edition and for the first time for years it has failed to update
When i click update it says it is up to-date with current ver 100412-0 but on my avast
menu it says ver 100407-1 of 07/04/2010 so i'm not sure what has happened.

My second question is i have downloaded the new avast 5 free edition but this now
looks like it's not compatible with windows millenium and i am unable to install it.
Can i still continue to use the 4.8 ver if the updates continue

Sure! You can use the 4.8 version as long as the vps updates continue... :)
Later i would think about another solution, since the best AV can't protect your system, if it doesn't get updated anymore...
