    @evem
    You can use the new product version and your license can be converted, so you will not lose anything.

    avast 5 free is free for all users, or only for home users?

  12. January 27th, 2010 at 23:20 | #12

    @Carmelo
    Carmelo, Avast Free is free for home non-commercial users.

  13. January 27th, 2010 at 23:21 | #13

    @dennis
    Dennis, updates are automatic. Open avast (click on the avast “blob” icon in the system tray) then click the maintenance tab. It will be obvious from there.

  14. January 27th, 2010 at 23:22 | #14

    @evem
    Evem, no need to wait. GO to the home page and click on the banner for existing users. You can upgrade to the equivalent product for free.

    You write “we are proud to announce that Google has chosen this product for inclusion in Google Pack. Google Pack is a package of free software that Google assembles and distributes to its users around the world”

    I load “Google Pack is a package of free software” and i think is for all users, also commercial

    In your download page http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download#tab3
    I load
    “For ordinary Internet use” and not for home non commercial use

    I like Avast! Way better than Norton or McAfee, which always slow your computer down.

    @hassan
    hassan, you should use Avast 5. You can get either from our website.

  31. January 31st, 2010 at 07:51 | #31

    With all of the comments & info, I have yet found a link that will allow me to download the free version 5. How do I download it?

    @mark Market
    Avast.com has nothing to do with with elite Antivirus nor Amazon. You were tricked by scammers. Search the Avast for an Elite version.. Avast doesn’t have an Elite version.. Now search the internet.. there are fake versions called Elite antivirus.. You downloaded the wrong program. If I were you, I would download Avast antivirus free.. from this website and try out the real antivirus program. You will be happy with the real product. Every one of my family members and close friends use Avast, and we love it!

  39. February 3rd, 2010 at 17:50 | #39

    I HOPE THIS VERSION WORKS!

    Hi
    Avast should also develop similar or better software like ” http://www.ccleaner.com
    I am happy after installing free ”ccleaner” to clean my computer.
