Is it not possible to avoid to have the windows plenty of avast' pop-ups?? It's very ennoying! and I'll uninstall it if it's not possible-

You don't say what popups are bothering you, so just a general hints:

avast! should not popup message too often. One exception are warnings about a condition preventing avast! from doing its work which depends on configuration of avast! and also some other applications (e.g. your mail client). Most common warning and how to avoid it is described here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=89943.0

Furthermore you can configure popup verbosity in System Preferences >> Avast >> Popups and suppress the warning altogether. Note that popup about malware detection cannot be suppressed so if avast! thinks you are infected it will continue to tell you. It's what it is supposed to do.

Regards,
Mity

Can you be more specific? If it does not scan your incoming messages because of the warning "SSL/TLS Connection Detected",
take a look into this thread:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=89943.0

If it is other issue, describe it please.

Rergards,

How do I download the Mac version?  I went to the location on Avast website that says to click "download" for Mac, but when I click it, it takes me to this forum.

Wooo the webrep button in Firefox works nicely, but most Mac sites don't have a reputation! I guess there is work to do.  :P

On my Safari Webrep is working (Version 5.1.3 (7534.53.10)).

One bug: settings are not saved (or maybe are changed to default after manually enabling/disabling mail shield).

nahuelito,

so far the beta versions only automatically update virus database, not program. So this is (a bit uncomofrtable) way how to force beta users to update to newer one.
Follow these instructions:

  • Download current program version (linked always from 1st post in this thread -- http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=78646.0; or newly also available on http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-mac/)
  • Open the downloaded DMG and drag&drop avast! into /Applications
  • If another version of avast! already exists there, Finder will ask you what to do. Choose "Replace".
  • Start the new version of the app from /Applications. It will offer you to do update.

Regards,
Mity

Hi Team,

Today i downloaded the beta version of Avast on my MacBook Air and did a full system scan and i was greeted with the following warning

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/test/testtar.tar

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/test/testtar.tar


/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MediaKit.framework/Versions/A/Loaders/MKDrivers.bundle/Contents/Resources/bootroot.loader


My question is should i safely ignore and move or  should i delete it ?

i did try to repair using the repair tool but it was not fixed

Is there any way of finding out when updated versions are available?  It doesn't seem obvious to me.
