Maybe you noticed that we have launched an avast! manufacturer’s forum on CNET.com. Please note that it is not intended to replace our long-standing avast! Forum (forum.avast.com), which will continue to be our main forum. Nonetheless, there is a huge community around CNET.com/download.com, of which many within the community are already avast! users. We are doing our best to be closer to our community and to help in the several main places they go for help. CNET members can find the CNET avast forum at http://forums.cnet.com/avast-forum
The question sounds promising, right? You’ll finally understand everything that avast! does while it’s running on your machine. However, this article is intended to discuss the topic from the other side – what avast! is absolutely not doing on your PC. The inspiration to write this article came from my short discussion with Vince. This article should continue the aim of his posts in making things clearer. I’m not used to writing such posts, I’m rather technically based, so if you have any questions, feel free to use the comments and ask me. So, let’s consider the main points.
