2.0.5 (Dec 16, 2012)
Could anyone tell me if there's a 64 bit version available?
7.0.1407 (Feb 27, 2012)
I'm deeply unimpressed by this release having been an Avast user for years and having always given it 5 stars here. Initially I had some very scary hangs at startup and I've have had to switch off the rootkit scan and set Avast to load after other services to prevent this. Now - because of a rogue update file - Avast will no longer update and can't be repaired or uninstalled. They have promised a fix but have given no proper timeline. I appreciate that Avast is free and generally a very good product, but .... AV programs are crucial to the safe operation of a computer and bugs can cause critical errors. The release of Avast 7 has been a very shoddy and I suspect premature affair, I really hope that Alwil sort this out quickly.

Avast is reporting a problem with mpc-hc, suggesting it only be opened in a sandbox. I'm sure there's not a real problem here but excessive caution has led me to temporarily switch to VLC. Perhaps the developers could have a word with the Avast people?
btw to the person complaining about the toolbar ... yes it's a bit irritating but KL makes no attempt to force its installation nor to trick users into installing something they don't want. The toolbar is clearly presented as an option which it's very easy to decline.
5.0.1.0523 (May 26, 2011)
It's no longer possible to install Foxit without also accepting the Ask toolbar ... as such this program is now adware and I hope FF will reclassify it. I shall certainly be finding a new pdf reader.
