What I would like to see besides more rootkit protection would be a portable and bootable USB version. I would settle for just a portable version that you can run from a USB thumbnail drive.

Maybe a more compact GUI. It still looks whooping big---covers almost three-fourths of a 15 inch notebook screen. Resizing, however, is quite a drag with the scroll bars. It's just a minor problem, though.

I also would like to see a GUI tweak. I want a Windows 7 theme option, so the GUI matches the rest of my apps. I don't want "skins", just a native W7 option.

If it can trigger sand box for unsafe url then It may be treated as useful
Url ???
You're messing processes with urls... The process is what is sandboxed.

Avast needs some UI refinement and integration with Windows 7's UI features such as Startmenu Jumplists

I would like an option to have Avast use the default Aero Windows 7 Skin.

Also less Memory usage and even better protection so Avast can be the number 1 ranked AntiVirus would be great :)

'Native' UI look (the same as windows), no out of place skins.

More compact UI, that doesn't require half of my screen to show something that would take only 1/10 of the screen in other programs.

And now to remedy the biggest UI nonsense - Scrap groups in Firewall!

I would like to see support for WHS 2011, and an upgrade on WHS v1 to Avast! V6, been long time since we didn't get an upgrade on WHS v1 (Dec. 2008?) Feels like we are left behind again... Am proud Avast supporter for WHS product and Pro edition.

Thanks,

Claude

 Almost forgot, put removable media scan (not just context menu scan) on right-click of a removable media. It's quite a pain when I have to do a 15min+ context menu scan of a 16 GB external harddisk when I can actually invoke a minute of removable media scan--it's just that it's buried in the UI that makes me not to. Yes, laziness, I know.
 Or better, rename it to "Flash Scan", "UltraQuick Scan" or something similar to clear the confusion that it's not something that's entirely associated with removable media that you should only scan your FlashDisks using it.

MINOR: Change the tray icon. The orange ball is outdated. avast! has a new logo for almost a year, I believe it's better to use the new lymphocyte thing--to establish a trademark.
