Bug recognizing avast! anti-virus version

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys. I don't know how to go about reporting a bug, so I was hoping maybe one of you guys could give me a hand at that. I'd just like someone to know that Speccy doesn't correctly report the version of my anti-virus. I have avast! version 6, but Speccy reports that it is version 5.

Mine is the same.


I don't know for sure, but this could be an Avast issue, as every "Alwil Software" and "Avast Software" entry in both "HKEY_CURRENT_ USER" and "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" registry hives show Avast 5 when I have 6 installed. (XP SP3)


Which is as the corresponding folders are named. (Program Files and All Users App Data)


The only mention of Avast 6 is under the version numbers highlighted green.




Speccy mustn't be getting it's data from the one location containing the correct version number.
