@ aspyder,

When is the next update or what do I do until then? Where do I get a safe copy of the latest v5?
There is a pre-release version available now v.6.0.1044, which you can find the download file in the Sticky thread.

You can also find older version download files on filehippo.com, however you will need to use the Avast Uninstaller tool http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear6.exe to uninstall ALL versions and products of Avast prior to doing a clean install.

AVG and reformatting will most likely be a nightmare for you. 

Questions (reply in your next post):

1. Have you tried an uninstall and clean install yet?
2. What other security software do you currently have or did you have in the past on this machine including:
- Antivirus (AV)
- Firewall (FW)
- Trial versions of AV, FW and other security programs
- Other security software
- If they were in the past, how did you remove them (the vendor's uninstaller's tool or another way)?
3. What version of Avast did you have in the past and was this an upgrade or a clean install to v. 6.0.1000?
4. Are your MS Updates current?

Thank you and I look forward to your reply.  :)

On two computers I have dumped ZA and installed PC Tools. ZA wouldn't fully install on the Compaq laptop and I had various issues on this computer.

@ JaceKiwi,

The issue with ZA has been fixed with v.3.0.1044; see this thread http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74149.0 for the download files if you wish to install it.  If however you feel comfortable with PCT FW and everything is working fine for you, then let us know if you need any further assistance.  Thank you.  :)

Love the new Avast 6 but seem to have an issue with viewing mail thru Yahoo Messenger. Every time I try to go to my email thru the messenger, I get caught in a loop and it keeps telling me IE 8 has encountered a problem and needs to reload. I didn't have this problem before installing AV 6. Can any one tell me how to fix this? I am pretty much computer illiterate if it requires any kind of programming changes. System info is IE 8, XP Home ver 5.1.2600 SP3. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thank you very much for your support!  ;)  :)

Since I installed 6.0.1021 on March 8th I've had no further problems and I am running Zonealarm.   Subsequent to that 6.0.1035 was made available and has been running fine as well.  You can get it at http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74149.0.
