I recently installed Avast! Home Edition. I've a couple of issues with it which are making it unsuitable... but I might be using it wrong:
1)Even a quick scan on c:\ is taking ages. I don't know which files it's scanning but I really just want to scan .exe files and everything in the Windows folders normally. I can't see options to control this.
2)When I turn of the on-access resident scanning, it always comes back on when I restart my PC. Can't I turn it off for good?
Is the professional version any different by the way, or just token differences?

The only difference of the Pro version is the "script blocking" ability.

There are other differences, mostly to do with configuration options. Check their website for comparisons. btw: I have the pro version on Vista, and have never had the problem you describe. What o/s are you running?
Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
