I don't know if this is the right forum, but could you possibly enable Avast! for mac to work with the Growl notification addon? Thanks

The early beta's did support growl for some of its notifications. I will load growl this evening to see if it still does work.

Well, the first betas did _require_ it. But that of course meant problems as that created a dependency we really did not like. Other problem is that to our understanding the user should not be able to suppress at least the most important popups (malware detection) as that's why he installs the avast! to be protected, and that is impossible with Growl (or least was when we used it, not sure about current versions). So this has been removed many months ago.

I would really prefer to have Growl notifications.
