A good Antivirus
« on: November 09, 2010, 03:10:46 PM »
Hi,
 I am a newbie to Avast. Found the program very good , will bring some of my suggestions and reports as days go by. For the start..

1.While registering the free version kindly issue an activation code against the name. Incidentally I had to uninstall and reinstall Avast after a few problems. It was a little disappointing to see Avast ask for re-registration again. I wish it gives an option to continue with an earlier registration , as the names are exactly the same.

Doesn't matter, just re-register with the same info.

Well that just says to me that it did a good job of removing avast when you uninstalled it.

So how is the installation (or reinstall) of avast free to detect you had it installed and offer to use previous registration details (email, name, expiry date, etc.) as it hasn't stored that information locally.

Welcome new AVast user.

I will tell you this.

Don't try and outsmart the designers and programmers of Avast.

For at least the first six months including spending an hour or more on this forum a day I would strongly suggest to leave the default settings as is.

Overall AIS is a very good program as is the Free AV only version of Avast.

Let it do its thing and learn how it does it before mucking around with the default settings.

Just my opinion :)
