AVAST 8 Program update! (8.0.1489)
« on: May 09, 2013, 05:44:03 PM »
Hi all,
we've just released program update for avast! Free/Pro/IS/Premier (8.0.1489).

List of changes
•         BSOD fix in aswTdi.sys
•         Fixed WebRep crashes in IE
•         Fixed WebRep FF issue with not saving the position
•         SecureLine stability improvements

Download locations

http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup.exe
 
It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).
Or you can use the in-product updater.
 
thanks,
Pavel

Pavel, thank you for the new version!

I just updated here (via the UI) from 1483 to 1489 on Win7 64bit and on Win8 32bit ... and everything runs well  :)

The update via GUI from .1488 to .1489 worked well.

WebRep in Firefox is now holding the given position but at least on my machine it does not show up in Google search results unless I refresh the search page one or two times.
All the rest seems to be working fine.

OK, I installed Avast PRO v.1489 in Safemode via the Set-up File (not through the GUI of Version 1483) as I had posted version 1488 was not working on my Win8 64 Bit.
Did a Clean Install.
This new version installed and is running properly.....specifically allowing my PC to start with no "Collecting error information loop"
Needless to say, this has relieved my concerns and  makes me quite happy ;D
Thanks again Avast.
 Good work ;)

I did a clean install of the latest v8.0.1489.300 of avast! Free Antivirus into my home PC equipped with Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Premium (32-bit).  As noted from its Settings > Browser Integration, the security plugin for Google Chrome is shown as "uninstalled" though it has been installed.  Is this a bug required of fixing?
