Thanks D, in which case I might just update manually; I am using XP but it won't make a difference.
Hallo Manhunter, I have it running on XP pro & it is running just as good as the 4.8 build
thanks mitchell for that; i think i'll run the manual update.

Both are very good & come highly recommended by many reputiable members

I have used both & have chosen one over the other because it is what i like in an AV

I still recommend the other to many people as i feel it would better suit their particular needs

Try both indivdually for a period of time & you will find which one is for you

Then you buy your 3th car and again you buy a Ford and again you have issues with it. If you buy then your 4th car and go for a GM car people say: why didn't you buy a Ford? They have become better you know...
I have the same with Norton...
I understand you but after using kaspersky internet security for the last two year and today switching to inernet security 2010...... EVERYTHING is better, fast pc, no internet speed slowdowns, detect my devices, etc..

As a kid my mum always had Norton on the PC's and every one of them has crashed, I was only a kid so didnt know much about systems but the last tower had norton installed and got an infection, I didn't use it much but when I decided to try fix it, I struggled to get anything come up. I tried safe mode, bios menu, everything but it did more damage everytime I switched it on. Norton should have picked that up which does question whether they update their virus database.

The one problem with avast 5 is the boot-time scan isn't available on 64-bit systems yet.
