Do you want automatic sandboxing (virtualization) to increase avast protection?

Yes. Make it available (on by default, i.e., for all users).
Yes. Make it available (off by default, i.e., for advanced users only).
No, I think the "default allow" policy (signatures, rules, etc.) is enough.
I don't understand the difference (please, post your doubts).
Other (please, post your opinion and why).

Sometimes I think I just should not read forums... look what it does to me.

I agree with you there for sure, probably would be best to stop using computers all together since they have no future right ?   ::)

Not mentioning that this is not exactly the right thread for it.
No, not really ;)
Everyone could open a fight thread between Windows, Linux, Mac or whatever ;D

I hear that an abacus is all the rage ;)

I doubt it can use dial-up though.

all AV products for windows do not have much of a future at all. Because windows has no future: it appears to me that kernel development stopped with Win2K.

yeah and Linux has a future right ;D ::)

ps: if you reply to that, keep in mind that you're talking to an ex-Linux user, I can get into details and this might hurt. Not mentioning that this is not exactly the right thread for it.

I guess you did not read (or comprehend) my entire post. Try reading the part about Matrox. The ones who provided rock solid *nix video drivers with source for many years before ATI dragged the market down.

It will not hurt at all my son. I've been there, done that. sold the effing t-shirts.

Don't tell grandma how to suck eggs whippersnapper! ;)

So I guess you didn't really have anything to say about the lack of development in the windows kernel after all did you? Why even quote it? Nor do you look any wiser. Fail, and fail on both counts.

You fail to impress even yourself. I can tell.

If you think the fact that windows has no future means that computers have no future you are sorely mistaken.

Is that supposed to sound funny? Is it supposed to sound smart? It is neither.

To be honest, I expected more from Avast users. You guys come across like a bunch of slashdotters. Blech.

Hahahahaha ah ah ha.. o right. Yawn, see above assessment of the mentality here. I expected better - particularly of a Canadian user.

I shall move on. Later slashlosers.

OK, that's enough. Strong words, facts none. I seriously doubt you have any idea about Windows kernel development yourself. So yeah, please move on.

Regarding Matrox... yes, they were nice, I liked them. I guess their problem was they they got stuck in the 2D world, their 3D performance was kinda pathetic.
