You can't do anything just wait for next release when they fixed those bugs.:wink:

the Re-Installation of yesterday fixed the update bug and now the update time is showing correctly ;-)

BTW, my version is 10.0.185.3207.

AntiVirus Name: Avast Internet Security
Free or Paid: Paid
Price in INR [If Paid]: Rs. 2140/year
Protection Type: Complete PC Protection + Intrnet Security

Ratings out of 5.
User Friendly: 4.3
Detection Rate: 4.6
Price: 3.4
Overall: 4.7

Recommend to Use: Yes
Comments: Definitely recommended, the best I have ever hit. I installed in 2009 and I haven't re-installed My windows YET !!! :) . Super happy. :cool:

did you buy a 3 years license for 3 pcs - the most costly Av I've seen till date ;-)

this Ad-aware is pissing me off... i can't store a single game crack, thanks to it! :(

So far I've not faced any such issues ;-) put those no cd type files on a folder and put those files on the ignore list.

game companies should make it mandatory to have ad aware installed to play any kind of game. piracy will disappear :mrgreen:

nice idea but even Avira and Norton Av has the same issue ;-)

using Kaspersy Internet security 2012 on intel atom D425 system & it works fine.paid Rs.260 for 1 year 1 pc license & in my opinion best value for money security suite at this price.though free suites are good too at this price i simply do not see any compelling logic to not use KIS2012 especially when i order a Rs.100 pizza every week :)

at least spare the security software that watches your back while you play with pirated versions of games and other craps that are full of rootkits & spywares. Anyone want to clean all their pirated copies of softwares and games, try emsisoft antimalware. trust me, you won't touch that thing again even with a 100m long pole ;) you may install it on your friend's PC, start a scan and enjoy the aftermatch :grin: (i have done it many times)

now move on. this thread is turning into a crack discussion thread and further discussion will lead to having all the new posts being removed :|

people I have seen the latest version of avast 7 give peculiar problems. It blocks programs like Xchat, which is a IRC client. Had to add to exceptions.
Might also try the latest Avira soon. But for now avast is fine. There is also a slight noticeable decrease in copy speeds as shown by Teracopy. Too proactive scanning :p

auto sandbox is on i guess. make sandbox manual and when it asks, add it to trusted list or whatever. best is to skip installing sandbox during installation.

^^ that what's happen when you ( pointing to the devs of this crap AV app ) use 4 scan engines but none of even one is made by you ;-)

need to get another free antivirus other than avast for browsing purpose and downloading torrents once in a month.Avast is quite a bandwith hog and all the time keeps on downloading some updates.
Should getting a Kaspersky Antivirus be a better option and how is its security

fine dude, go head with KIS(Kaspersky Internet security), i am using this KIV anti virus sw for the past 5 years. you will satisfied with this.

In my experience, No anti virus is perfect.spend some few bucks instead of going torrent's that will save you alot from bad stuff.

@ vaibhav23 - why not use Avira AntiVir Free edition with some good Antispyware apps - enough for your needs. I'm using it again after 7 months ;-)

Well don't think Avast downloads so many updates. I had updated after 5 days and all it downloaded was around 1.8 mb, which I don't think is much :wink:

Among all the AVs I have used, Avast! definition updates were the smallest and just takes few seconds to update on every 2nd or 3rd day on my 15 Kbps connection:-D
Regarding Kaspersky Antivirus, I installed the trial version and removed it within 24 hours. Reason: it will frustrate you like hell with its numerous dialog boxes:evil:. Many may see this as a +ve but I don't.
