    Agreed completely. This is a GREAT app for free. Some people are always wanting more it seems.

    As Long as the ad is just for there products and stays on that page. AKA no popup. Then yes I don't see how this can be a problem

    Wow, people will moan about anything, won't they? It isn't like Avira with that damn near full screen pop-up they pull on you. This little thing is tiny, at the bottom away from all the important stuff, and only in the settings, which, really, how often are you in there after you've done your tweaking, if any?

    That's not such a big ad, I don't mind it.

    Does anyone have any comments about the behavior blocker? (I haven't used avast! v5 yet, so I don't know anything about it.) For example: Is it fully functional yet? Is it intrusive? Etc.

    Anyone having problem getting it to register? I had 2 different build of beta 3 and the first one stopped updating saying it had expired but I had tried multiple times to register it.

    Right now on beta 3 build .314 I tried 2 days ago to register it and it never did but does say "Not Yet Registered must be registered in next 30 days" but also says current registration expires on 01/18/2038 and date of register 1/01/2005..what gives?

    Looking thru their Beta Forum many people are reporting problems registering the latest version due to server problems. It should be fixed soon...:cool:
