You are missing something.

That's kinda surprising - because avast! 5 should be faster on slower machines than avast! 4.
What exactly is slow, and what is the machine config?


5 is lighter than 4. 

Going from 4 to 5 and getting some kind of tragic slowdown implies some kind of problem/conflict.

When you changed from 4 to 5, did you use the Avast! Uninstall Utility to remove everything???

yes, i made a clean installation.

it runs slow. i tested it 2 times. worked good but my pc was more slow.

btw, the uninstall process from version 5 to 4 was really slow too.

For me, all uninstallation processes are slow.

no, uninstalling avast 4 is fast (1-3 minutes).

uninstalling avast 5 took +10 minutes in my pc (uninstalling the web shield component took 5 minutes. i thought that it was freezed at this point)

not tragic but it could be between 10% or 20% more slow, depending how old is your pc.

Antiviruses are awesome if there free so think about how all that protection you get for free and the only bad thing is a 20% more slowdown.

I was happy with avast 4 during years.

Now I feel that I am being forced to upgrade to 5 or bye bye avast?

if microsoft had made the same thing with xp forcing everybody to upgrade to vista, they could be in bankruptcy now.
