Working OK for me (upgraded from version 4.8). Problems can occur if you are installing on a system that previously had a different AV program. In these cases, you need to completely uninstall your existing AV using the tool that should be available on the appropriate AV vendor's website. Once you have done that, you should be able to install Avast! without problems.

Just tried Avast Internet Security 5.0 (trial) and it did not work. Once installed, could not get an internet connection to activate. Uninstalled and installed again, same problem. Programs that usually start up (weatherbug & Malwarebytes) were extremely slow in coming up. Used the windows uninstall to Avast off (no uninstall with Avast). This took quite bit of time to uninstall. Program is finally uninstalled, does not show up on desktop or in all programs. However, if I go to computer, drive C:, Programs, the files are still there. I am unable to delete them, indicates I need admin permission. I am Administrator with full rights. Even tried to delete at command prompt, gave me access denied. How do I remove the files?
Went back to Norton NIS 2010.
