Hi folks, 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?.

Thanks folks.I I think I'll just stay with version 7 for the meantime then and see how it pans out!

Had no problems on 2 machines but on my wife's computer it froze on the registration screen. Ended up uninstalling all via revo and installing MS essentials on it.

No problems with Avast at all. It seems to me they have moved up a gear. Extra features with no hidden extras - unlike AVG.

By the way, have you actually noticed how cheap the Pro version is? You can opt for a 20 day trial of it but I've seen it offered at less than £20 as well.

Well I installed version 8 and I must say that I preferred the layout of version 7.Also it wont let me register it.Just keeps saying retrieving information.

Did you do a 'clean' install for 8 or did you over-ride 7 with the new install?.

Clean install spuds.There's an option to register "off line" where they email the registration license so I've done that 'cos it just wasn't registering the usual way.Thanks.
