Why does version 7 feels slower for some reason? Quick scan used to be faster using same settings. And also on-access seems a bit sluggish on some occasions. Were there any changes done to the caching mechanism? Or the scan engine or it's heuristics (that would slow it down)?

@RejZoR, it had nothing to do with v7. There was a bug in scan engine and it was already fixed in vps update for both v6 and v7.

@pk
I've just performed a quick scan and it took quite long compared to scan times from before. I'll observe this further...

Btw, how do streaming updates affect cache mechanism now? I mean before the cached results were valid between updates. Now that streaming updates are received every few 10 minutes, are cached results still valid at all or just for this short duration?

The UI has had a slight update. Looks a little different now.
The support tool is a feature that collects log files etc together, allowing you to submit them to avast should theyy be requested when troubleshooting.

It would be a smart thing to move the BETA talk to the beta section where it belongs...
