The 150 million is the number of users that update in the last 30 days, a.k.a., active users.

Everything is still A-OK here on my computer and the 3 computers I have installed avast 7 free on in the last couple of days!!!

I would like to ask everybody to take a deep breath and have a little faith in avast while they work out some issues!!

Some people are acting  like the sky is falling and there is no hope in sight to their problems, trust me the sky is not falling and it will be ok!! lol  8)

?? Not quite sure what your saying?? but I will take a guess, you are saying I should purchase avast??

As my signature shows I am running Avast Internet Security and I am running it on this computer that I am typing on, so I have purchased avast.  8)
