    Well, my is broken. Just made scathing post on their forum, no official statements there. Dozens of reports there and no replies by Avast team. To heck with them, there's other fish in IT ocean.

    David, is the avast version and edition installed in your system - the same as in Mike's? What about Windows edition?

    Few with avast had no problems it seems from avast forums.
    I'm not sure about his version of Avast.

    I don't know what you mean by Windows edition ?

    I have 8.1.1 Pro WMC if you mean my version of Windows.

    Free, if I was to pay I would go Kaspersky.

    Mine is the cheapest paid version.

    I wonder, at the Avast forum, which version they are having problems with ?

    I just visited there.
    No response from the Avast team.

    They could at least say they are working on it.

    Yes, that's what I had in mind

    Since everyone's having problem irrespective of avast version, in their forum, no wild guesses
    They may have to really dig into it & correct it fast.
