You would have liked avast 4.8 as that was really loud an alarm and very noticeable visual alert also, much more so than the subdued avast 5 alerts ;D

Yes, strangely I remember it as being louder ;D

Even though I never had a real virus detection testing with the eicar test file even when you knew it was going to alert, for the first time it still made you jump.

Hard to believe they would have a pig squealing as a virus alert ???
Sure this isn't a wind-up.

The pig squealing was sure there in the old version of the product. I guess 2009 ??? I don't remember which version it was. But it certainly was there.

The first time I heard the Avast alarm, I shook like a little sissy.
Then I laughed.
