has anyone been using the latest version of avast(version 8)without any problems?I was going to install it as I'm still on 7.0.1474 but I've read that some folk have been experiencing problems with this latest version?
I just wanted to get as much advice as possible before installing it?Thanks folks.
The only thing that I have noticed is the 'updater', which keeps reminding me that I should download. After download there's a reboot required, then the reminder seems to appear again. Just keeping my eye on it at present?.
You'd have no problems with Avast if...
1) if you'd have Avast as the only AntiVirus on your PC, having 2 or 3 different ones can cause them to conflict so uninstall the other one(s) before going ahead with the installation.
2) if you'd have no bad or broken sectors on your hard drive (google "hard drive broken sectors" for a few articles on the issue). A friend of mine had a quoter of his HDD damaged and parts of Avast happened to install on some of them aaaand...he had problems with it ever after, nightmare'ish ones)))
Other than that, you're good to go, Avast is reliable and trusted by millions. Good luck.
