It might be prudent for Avast to check with GDATA why they aren't using the latest engine
since by doing so, anything their program misses indirectly reflects back on Avast.
If Avast made the inquiry, it will probably get faster results that questions asked by their own customers.

Having said all of that doesn't change the fact that nsm0220 is not an Avast customer and should get this question
answered by GDATA.
Since we help people with all kinds of problems and many of them aren't avast! users, helping nsm0220 isn't such a sin.  :)

you don't mind that we talk about this in a pm
There isn't anything that can be accomplished via PM. I also don't see any reason for a PM.

then explain why that they told me and everyone else in forum that they would stop updating virus signatures for 4.8 after 12-31-10

than explain to me why they lie to me about upgrading their 4.8 to 5.0 for gdata

OK, I'm tired of this.
The virus signatures for 4.8 didn't stop because there are still to many programs being used (e.g. the business editions of avast!, and also older editions of g-data), so it's simply not possible to terminate the support, no matter how much we'd like to do that.

As for the g-data engine, you are simply wrong, it has been updated quite some time ago.

Done, please go accusing people of lying somewhere else.
