Hi watchful, I had to uninstall the last one due to problems outlined in CT. Is the new version much different?

Hi watchful, I havent had a little pop up yet to say there is a new version. How did you find out about this one please.

  Stuartli 11:31 14 Nov 05

If you have Avast! set to update automatically it will/should download the bits and pieces from the latest version to update the current one.

Hi Barmoor,

As Stuartli says, mine is set to notify me, which it does frequently.

That's how I knew.

I'm not sure if this version is different as I didn't have any problems with the older one.

New installations occur perhaps more frequently than you may realise.

It depends on your update settings - when you install Avast it's generally set to receive AV updates automatically, but actual program updates manually ie you have to right click and select Updating/Program Update. To change it go to Program Settings/Update Basic.

Thank you Fruit Bat /\0/I thought I was set up to receive updates auto matically and I regularly get them , but when I saw your build number I checked and found that I have to ask for programme updates. It is now set to receive virus and programme updates auto matically
Thank you
