** INTRODUCING: New Official Avast Program Update 6.0.1289 **
« on: September 06, 2011, 06:43:11 PM »
Hi all,

I'm glad to announce the general availability of a new avast program update, version 6.0.1289.

Here's a list of most important changes:
- New Script Shield - now scanning deeper and supporting more host processes
- Web Shield now scanning all processes by default
- Stability improvements in aswSP.sys
- Better tracking of file sources
- WebRep now working in new versions of Firefox
- Under-the-hood improvements in the Behavior Shield and Sandbox modules
- Solved a compatibility problem with certain Steam-based games
- Minor improvements in the product UI
- Various other security and stability related fixes

Special thanks goes to everyone who helped testing the beta builds.

It is recommended to upgrade to this latest version by using the in-product updater. Alternatively, you can use these direct

download links:

Free AV: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_av_free.exe
Pro AV: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_av_pro.exe
IS: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_ais.exe


Note: If you have any problems with this new version, please do NOT post to this thread; start a new topic instead. Ideally one topic per issue.

Thanks
Vlk

I take it that the links in this post are for the failed update.  You'll post news then when there is a "fixed" version?  I uninstalled this update (clean) and went back to 1203 and everything is back to working.

I believe this is the same setup as the failed one.  Exact same size on download - and version hasn't changed (something I would guess that would get bumped so to avoid confusion between two different releases...maybe my guess is wrong though?

Use the in-product updater as usual. There's absolutely no need to download and install the new version from scratch.

Well it shouldn't have happened in the first place. It was one of the last-minute changes that were supposed to make things better -- but made things worse. :-[
