Windows Vista >> Avast 4.7 humbles performance

The Avast folks confirmed that 4.7.xxx had a bug which caused it to eat lots
of CPU time and keep the hard disk busy. They advised us to install 4.8,
the current release. That worked fine.

I assume normal updates would install this Automatically (assuming you
have Auto updates ticked)?? I am showing v 4.8.1169 for the Free Home
one, so I trust that is the latest

Thanks for the heads-up

Windows Vista >> Avast 4.7 humbles performance 4.7 was never slow on vista here, vista itself was slow even with no
antivirus installed.
Its one of vista's traits to be slow.. slow as a turtle that is dead.
Fat as pig with lipstick.
4.8 is the same thing... I have seen no performance boost on vista or xp.
