    Thank you for this information. Reading what is in the link you posted, they 'recommend' that we upgrade (please read DOWNGRADE from XP), to Windows 10! Can you believe this? Of all the operating systems available, including Linux, they have the gall to tell us to go for this disaster - this monstrosity - Windows 10 :eek::eek::mad::mad:

    At least Avast has the courtesy to continue updating virus definitions for Avast 5.x and up! Avast 7.x/8.x are as close to perfect as any antivirus will ever get--there's next to no reason to use a version newer than either one of those. Both are even compatible with Win2K (which is a very nice bonus).

    Nothing 'dodgy' about Avast 7.x/8.x--those were released before the company changed their business model.

    Go beyond those versions, though, and you'll definitely run into some trouble.
