Painfully slow installation
« on: February 06, 2011, 05:55:29 PM »
Just reporting feedback to the Avast team!

Painfully slow installation of 6.0.945 on a fully-updated copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

During installation, the process was slow at the "finishing installation" phase and actually stalled at the "quick scan of your system" phase.  After waiting 15 minutes at the "quick scan of your system" phase, I pressed the CANCEL button.  When Avast asked if I was sure about canceling the installation, I decided to let the installation continue.  After 10 more minutes, I pressed the CANCEL button again and saw the [NOT RESPONDING] message.  I had to press hold the on/off button down until the system completely shut down.  When I booted up again, Avast 6 was installed though.

Oh well . . . glad Avast 6 is working.  I am sure the installation will be improved before Avast 6 is released in stable form.  Thank you!

Strange... in my case installation took less than 2 minutes (except system scan that I cancelled) to complete...

I even uninstalled Avast 5 and rebooted before trying to install Avast 6.  So, it wasn't a conflict with Avast 5.   ???

Have you got any antivirus prior to Avast 5 installed?

Nope.  :)

And, my system has NOT been running for days without a reboot.  I shut it down last night.

If Avast releases another beta version, I will try the install again.
