Hi I am just here to say that the new Avast Antivirus program free or paid for requires you to agree to allow them to collect data from your pc. Of course they say they wont use the data so why do they want access to it. We have all heard this before and your data gets sent to whoever they want.

Thanks for the warning. I happened to see images of the new Avast in a magazine and they have the new Windows 8-style look with big square buttons/tiles, so I had already decided not to accept the new version. Your report reinforces my decision, so it's appreciated.

Hi yes I am still on version 7.0.1474 . Today for the first time I got a avast popup asking me if I wanted to see my virus count on the last 1200 pages I looked at LOL, so they must be tracking every web site you go to. I find this funny because if your going to track people where they go why tell them about it. Time for a new Antivirus solution I guess.

Yes, I absolutely agree. What kind of logic is that?
Helicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.
Oh blah, blah, blah, your needs!
