    Has anyone noticed any system drag after this latest update? I'm feeling a noticeable drag in opening programs and loading web pages.

    I was having some issues yesterday, but wasn't sure what to attribute it to. May have been Avast, but not 100% sure.

    An user-independent way of updating avast is case of installation corruption or, from avast side, a way to correct bugs and release updates.

    Maybe the best would be go to avast! forums and ask for help, giving more details of your system etc. ;)

    Thanks,Technical. But I'm not having a problem per se, just a feeling of performance lag that you can feel when you're sort of attuned to your PC, and wondered how others who got update were making out. I temporarily went back to another AV in the meantime, and I want to go back to a HDD image and reinstall all pgms with latest versions and leave out ones I don't use much, then install latest Avast. And your advice of giving system details is right, too, as I may be under-powered compared to others. I give Avast a thumbs-up anytime.
