x64 version?
« on: May 01, 2010, 05:41:47 PM »
Hello!


I use Avast 5 free under Win7 64bit. But, v5 seems only a 32bit application.
Exist a native x64 version of Avast v5 free?
I see in the task manager: avastui.exe *32


Thanks:

You don't need it. Really.
avast works perfectly on x64 bits.
It will be a native version in the future.
The best things in life are free.

avast! 5.0 (even 4.x) supports 64bit OSes already.

Version 5.1 will support the boot-time scan in 64bit OSes. Whether there will be a fully 64bit version of 5.1 or not, it wasn't decided yet. From users' point of view, it doesn't really matter - the "hybrid" version (64bit drivers and a few DLLs, the rest in 32bits) works just fine.

I do hope there will be a 64bit version - one of the reasons I chose Avast is the boot time scan.  :(

As Igor said the boot-time scan will be available for 64bit OSes when avast 5.1 is released and to do the avast boot-time scan in 64bit OSes doesn't require a full 64bit version of avast.
