Talking Avast 7 Released !

Direct quote from vlk -
Hi guys,

We have just released the final version of avast 7, version number 7.0.1407.

List of most important changes:

Update from v6 should of course be also possible via the built-in program updater.

Additional details to come soon.

Thanks
Vlk

Thanks for the update!

In case you quote something from somewhere, please do include a link to that page/site. Also, we do not allow direct links to downloads to be posted, so I had to remove them.

The new release looks good. I will soon install it on my other hard disk, on which I have UnThreat installed presently. Time for it to go.

Ones who will update to Avast 7, do keep posting here.

Hey Guys-

I've lost touch with the most recent changes to the latest release of Avast Free.
What exactly is included with the Free version as far as Sheilds and\or protection modules?

Thanks

Seems to slow things down a lot more than v 6 needed to switch off the cloud stuff & Updates to get anything like decent speed on browsing

I have been running it about 24 hours, and on my pc (win7) it's definitely faster than v6 was the last few weeks. I am running with MBAM-Pro and seems good so far. Time will tell....
