Avast had a serious database issue the other day, yes. Happens to the best of companies. Something was released before it should have been and wasn't properly tested. It was fixed within hours and a new update released. You make it sound like this is something Avast does every day. It was a one time mistake, fixed quickly. I applaud Avast for taking care of it so quickly.

Oh and by the way, myself and many, many others I have talked to about this, had NOTHING happen on their system. NOTHING, with Avast loaded and running.

I think it only affected programs written in Delphi.
