Hello everyone, new person here.:cya: I have a couple of questions and I hope this is the right place to post them. I am new to on-line games and I started off with AA. The first version I downloaded was 2.6 and after doing the basics a while I learned it was outdated and so I deleted the entire program(or at least I think I did). I want to download the 2.8 version and was viewing the text on how to go about it. It states that I must disable my anti-virus which on my PC is Avast. Could someone tell me if there is a way to do this short of deleting the entire program. Also do I install 2.8 first and then upgrade to the 2.8.1 version. Any others suggestions on what to do or what to read would be appreciated. Thanks!

You need to install 2.8 THEN 2.8.1, so you need to download both files and install one after the other in their respective order.

You only need to disable your antivirus if you're computer isn't top-of-the-range. When you open a *.exe your antivirus will automatically scan the file (in most cases), this will use up most of your RAM, causing your PC to crash. If, however, your antivirus doesn't scan *.exe files on open you should be ok.

Hope that answers your questions :)
