Just reverted to 6.0.1000 and everything working fine again. I'll wait for a 'stable' final release.

Okay so I have avast 6.0.1 and it's working fine. Do I have to install this newest version?  Silly question maybe, but I just want to know. These updates  scare me because something usually goes wrong.

No. Best wait to get the prompt via the avast interface when it's offically released

You don't have to - but it's probably best that you do.

It's only a a single click, and it will just intall the necessary changes onto 6.0.1000.

Okay thanks, I'll do it when the time comes.

@Privateofcourse : well first after I complained about speed issues with V6 stable, I found the pre-release version to be much faster. And second, if you got such issues as what you describe in your post, then your Windows install is broken. Avast just doesn't do such things to systems.

If that allegations was nearly true, all AVs would be the same impact on the overall PC's performance, and no one would ask: "hey, what AV is low on resource, low in memory footprint and you don't notice it is there?"

And... once YOU found 1021 version faster, NOBODY has the right to find it slower instead? Common! If you are in PMS and has bad humour, it is better not o post anything, YOUR SILENCE would be a poem.

Do not waste Logos time with your pathetic attempt to understand computers. Logos is all knowing. His computer is the razors edge of software development. Beta, alpha and nightly builds all performing flawlessly as their coders intended. Just a glimpse of his computer desktop would leave you senseless. You could never understand. Your only option is to accept what Logos has written. Resistance is futile!
