The skin is perfect. No need for tweaking and stuff like that.

Normally you don't even see the GUI during everyday PC-usage...

Skinning is just kids-play for programs like this.

I think I shall give up  ::) ^^ ...Avast decided to change its program to something else, and I cannot do anything about that except for keep using Avast 4 like I have been for many years... XD
I just miss the avast 4 UI , how it looked and everything ^^
...haha, when I first saw avast 5, I wondered if some big company bought avast and turned it into **** or something like that =P
...I just don't like it...reminds me of XP Home Security malware...



...why yes...I am after all, just some random teenager whos opinion does not matter  ;D

I Am Hoping You Guys A Good Day, Aufwiedersehen ^^

The skin has zero to do with the program functionality/protection, that is aesthetics, so essentially avast hasn't changed its program to something else. Other than to improve the protection afforded by avast 5&6, with additional areas of protection not in avast 4.8.

So you can carry on using 4.8 until the life support is switched off, which isn't that far off.

I think it would be silly to like open the avast UI and look at everything and think "I'm going to look at this UI all day looong"  ;D  like who would do that  :P

I will ! Thankyou  ;D
...it's kind of like windows yes? Still windows, but changes its looks to look like something completely new/different, when it isn't.

I think it would be silly to like open the avast UI and look at everything and think "I'm going to look at this UI all day looong"  Grin  like who would do that  Tongue

It isn't that at all...it's more like 'oh dear god! I can't look at the horrid-nous !' That is why I use 4.8 , it doesn't give me that kind of reaction =)

Can a mod just close this topic please..? =)

I like the 5 and 6 version of avast UI. Black and orange is a good match. It's easy on the eye.
Really, the media player wannabe version of Avast is what my friends always says everytime I mention of how Avast better then their bloated AVG.

The skin is perfect. No need for tweaking and stuff like that.

Normally you don't even see the GUI during everyday PC-usage...

That's right... Unless you're really boring and having all the time in the world to open Avast UI and staring it for hours  ;D

I find the bright orange a strain my eyes. It's too bright. So, that is why I wanted to change it  ;)

Normally you don't even see the GUI during everyday PC-usage...

Let's see...delete bright orange icon on desktop...anywhere I see it...make sure avast doesn't come up with that it is updated...never scan my computer...and see to it that avast doesn't come up with that a virus has been found...

Then, I will never be able to see the gaudy bright orange interface through normal use !!!

Mwahahaha!!   ;) ;D  ;D

You make sense. +1 to you ^^.
I do want the new avast sandbox...and many other new features/etc...
And I really do prefer what it does over looks...

I just don't like the interface. So much so, I won't upgrade. Which has me hitting my head against the wall.
...BUT...I really just don't like the new interface/look. The interface looks like all the other anti-virus's out there. It's looks so generic...unlike how avast's old interface actually stood out. It also reminds me of a couple virus's i've gotten in the past that pretend to be antivirus's when they are not. Take XP Home Security 2011 for instance...


RedBlade8, would you be the same one that posted on my soundpack tutorial? (same name, but no 8, different email but same posting style...)

...It could of been...
Is this the one you are speaking about?

Haha, yes, that was me, I like to customize things ...so...when I found out that I could create a custom soundpack for avast, I was surprised, and thankful for your wonderful work on that tutorial ^^. Thanks for making it.  ;):)

Different person, different eyes, different perspective... OK! I got you...  :)

Let's see...delete bright orange icon on desktop...anywhere I see it...make sure avast doesn't come up with that it is updated...never scan my computer...and see to it that avast doesn't come up with that a virus has been found...

Then, I will never be able to see the gaudy bright orange interface through normal use !!!

I didn't show my desktop icons in my machine so, no icons here. Well, if you think Avast UI colour theme is too flashy then, try to compare it with another antivirus...

After testing a big 5 Free antivirus (Avast, Avira, AVG, MSE, Panda), there's only 3 antivirus with nice or passable UI. Avast, AVG, and MSE. Since AVG is a resource monster and MSE a bit heavier than Avast... So it's Avast for me.

Haha, yes, you are right.  8) ...I hope i'm not getting repetitious now...nn.

Hmm. I found MSE to be more resource heavy than AVG. However, last time I used AVG on an xp computer ( to compare with my mse experience, ) was a long while ago... But the using MSE was recent, and it slowed the xp computer I was using to almost non-useable-ness.

I also don't like the way that the newest AVG is set up.
When I tried to install it, it complains that I have Avast installed :\
THEN, I had to uninstall Avast, install AVG, and then re-install Avast and it works fine.

However, I got an odd downloading bug in which I couldn't download or open anything.
The issue ( after searching around for a bit trying to find a solution, ) was AVG . I uninstalled AVG, and then I could download everything again.
...this is what I posted at firefox support...

That is a classic case of conflict and why you shouldn't install two resident AVs on your system.

I am also on the list who hate avast! Interface.

Good Luck for avast 7 hope it comes soon as beta

Yes, that one. I don't get many comments so I tend to investigate them before approving them. You're welcome ;)
