I'm glad to announce a second public beta of an upcoming program update of avast! Free AV / Pro AV / Internet Security (version 7.0.1443).
This program update contains the following major features:
* Changes in the autosandbox module
* Improvements in Remote Assistance (support for UAC prompts etc)
* Improvements in SafeZone (protection against kernel-mode keyloggers; Updated SafeZone Browser; clipboard sharing, etc.)
* Outlook plugin redesign
* Opera support in WebRep
* SiteCorrect module for the detection of unwanted websites
* Windows 8 compatibility updates
* Emergency Updater
Fixed issues from previous beta:
* No sounds on Vista/W7
* All known BSOD
* Stability fixes on Win8
* Outlook plugin is sometime not running correctly when you have more than 1 active account
* Windows 8 compatibility still experimental
* No translations have been updated so far, so all new items are in English
It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).
Any feedback is appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
