Hello,

Tuto4PC affects mostly French-speaking users, but the company that distributes these unwanted softwares wants to expand internationally : English-speaking users of Avast will also face this problem...

Avast response against this adware would be welcome, as you can see in the French topic quoted by Malekal_morte.

Thanks.

Avast should detect Tuto4PC. The fact is, it is not.
All the important informations about Tuto4PC are in the french topic indicated by Malekal_morte : http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=81827.0


Quote from: Malekal_morte
Serait-il possible, pour protéger les utilisateurs Avast!, de jeter un oeil à ces programmes et si vous estimez que c'est un malware, Adware ou PUP, ajouter des détections en conséquences.
Compte tenu des réactions des internautes sur les divers sites de news qui en parlent, je pense qu'ils seraient d'accord pour ajouter une détection pour ces programmes.

Quick translation :

Quote
Would it be possible to protect Avast users from Tuto4PC ? Take a look at these programs. If you think they are malware, adware or PUP, add detection for Tuto4PC.
Given the feedback from users on various websites, I think they would agree to add detection for such programs.

Ok, we will try it again. But some antivirus laboratories are generally reluctant to detect this kind of software, we would like to have a notice of an employee of Avast about Tuto4PC, in order to dialogue with him.

The French topic collects opinion, not all the french speak English... Then, we opened this topic in English to make the information available to Avast employees.

I think you didn't understand what we want... We are not here to criticize Avast, we only hope to get their views on Tuto4PC

ok, im sorry, may be this post is not really clear.

No troll, not here to evaluation Avast! or stuffs like that.
This is stupid.

As Anthony said, what we want is that Avast! detect TutoPC and protect French people against thoses stuffs.
Posting in French section is may be not a good idea, as Mr.Agent said, but thoses stuffs are only in french (for the moment), so we can ask people to post in this topic, but all the removal forums are in french, so that no help and i dont want to pollute Engligh with bump topic with french link.

i will try to contact Avast! with the link given by Asyn ! thank you.
Hope we will get a response !

Thank you.
