Title: AVAST 2014 (9.0.2006)
Post by: sedina on October 15, 2013, 03:47:35 PM
Hi all,

I'm glad to announce that we've just released AVAST 2014 (build number 9.0.2006).

Here is the list of major changes/improvements:

Protection-related features and improvements
•New DeepScreen technology allows avast! to make more intelligent decisions about new/unknown files. DeepScreen is a successor of AutoSandbox, now upgraded with some additional new technologies such as dynamic binary translation and dyna-gen announced earlier.
•New Hardened mode for stricter lockdown scenarios. This is a new mode that is recommended especially for novice users (such as your grandmas): it automatically blocks execution of binaries that would normally be deepscreened (Moderate level) or even allows only execution of programs that are well-known to FileRep (Aggressive level). In a way, it brings the whitelisting concept to the consumer AV space.
•Improved cloud scanning features and crowdsourced analysis of suspicious items. This includes new, optimized mechanism for collecting data from our sensors.
•Continuously streaming update (CSU) technology for up-to-minute detections. This is not entirely new for v2014, but we now have really buttoned up the whole streaming update infrastructure to allow for reliable, uninterrupted service. We’re currently doing 350-400 updates a day, which equals to one update in roughly every 3.75 minutes, 24x7, 365 days a year. Streaming updates can now also carry more types of definitions than before.
•Improved cleaning of malware. This applies to standard malware as well as rootkits and file infectors.

Other new features
•All-new web browser plugins featuring comprehensive security ratings, protection against malware, phishing and typosquatting sites and Do-Not-Track (DNT) functionality for improved anonymity on the Internet. The DNT functionality doesn’t rely on the DNT HTTP headers; instead, it uses a proprietary technology that cannot be overridden by the servers.
•All-new SafeZone for more secure online shopping and banking. Users can now switch back and forth between SafeZone and the regular browser with a single click. Also, online banking sites can be automatically opened in the SafeZone.
•Rescue disk - allow users to create a bootable CD or flash disk with Avast on it. Great for cleaning.

Other improvements
•A new, streamlined user interface for simplified navigation and more user comfort. The new UI is actually much simplified, and it’s probably the biggest change since version 5.0. We have also redefined the shields to the total number of three (File Shield, Web Shield, Mail Shield) and tweaked the action buttons (tiles) on the home page so that they’re now fully configurable.
•Control and manage all protected devices directly from the Avast console. That is, the my.avast.com account is perfectly integrated in the UI to allow for management of all your devices running Avast.
•Dramatic reduction in product size (full installer < 60MB, compared to today’s 120MB) and memory footprint. By default, install is done through a new stub installer though (which has the advantage of always installing the most up-to-date version).
•Faster scanning thanks to optimized scanning engine (raw [in-memory] scans of EXE files are about 2x faster, while scans of text contents (e.g. web pages and scripts) are up to 10x faster).
•Completely rewritten setup/updater that makes the installation and upgrade process faster, easier and more reliable
•Firewall has been redesigned from scratch to allow for better compatibility with latest Windows, better performance and full support for IPv6 (although its UI hasn’t really changed).
•New licensing system allows for much easier management of product licenses. The system relies on activation codes, and these can be added seamlessly by simply clicking a link.
•Various improvement in the Software Updater and Browser Cleanup tool.

It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved). Or you can use in-product updater.

thanks a lot, enjoy this release!!!

Title: Re: AVAST 2014 (9.0.2006)
Post by: DavidR on October 15, 2013, 04:54:00 PM
From the 2014 RC3 UI > Settings > Update, program update it reports it is up to date, presumably because the 9.0.2115 (RC3) version is the latest version on the beta update stream and isn't on the regular program update stream.

So it will have to be an install of 9.0.2006 over the top of RC3.

Updated through UI from version 8.0.1497.
I had BSOD during reboot.Second reboot was fine.
Also,Windows action center was reporting that Avast was turned off.
Now (after second reboot) everything is fine.
BTW,where is website blocking ?

Just updated from the UI on mu win7 netbook - avast free 8.0.1497. Things progressed well albeit pretty slow program update.

First point of note my firewall Outpost Firewall Pro, reported unsigned kernel mode driver !

Secondary point of note, after the reboot the avast free antivirus Setup screen is bloody massive, it won't fit on my 1024x600 screen. You can barely see the first opt out for chrome checkbox and you can't see the second nor can you see the Continue button.

This causes lots of hassle as the screen can't be resized, nor can it be moved up to click the Continue button as when you release the mouse pointer (after dragging the screen up) the window goes back to where it was. Now it is a case of trying to use the tab key to highlight the button that you can't see.

A right pain and possibly going to have people get chrome again.

Btw, nice job with the webpage. It's so simple and easy to navigate. I like it.

Hi

First of all congratulation for this release 2014 and for made avast! so light that looks like there is no AV installed at all. This is the most important reason why I use it.

I did a clean install and everything went good.

PS. Corrupted downloads fixed... :)

Take care...

Hello everyone. I want to report a bug with new avast on windows xp sp3.
After update i run quick scan. Avast found 2 rotkit virus and he moved it to chest. After that i restart a system but i cant run any programrs because avast deleted dll files that are ok from system32 folder (dhhcpmon.dll and dot3svcc.dll). I run safe mode and back up dll and now works.
Every time i run quick scan , avast  recognize different dll from system32 as rottkit. Please fix that bug, avast deleted files that are clean!

Here is screenshot of virus chest and clean dll that avast deleted

One thing I should point out is it was mentioned in the first post that the new installer only being 60Mb, the free version I just downloaded was 81Mb so that information in the first post of this thread might need to be edited.

Website blocking doesn't work anymore.
I turned it off and on and it doesn't work anymore.It worked before I did that.
I cannot turned it on permanently.
I did that often with Avast 8.0.1497.
Edit:
I used website blocking to block certain apps from connecting to the internet by blocking certain URLs
because Windows Firewall outbound rules didn't work with Web Shield (they are not working with
version 9.0.2006 also). So now I cannot block those apps anymore.
Tomorrow I will reinstall version 8.0.1497.I am very disappointed.
Edit 2:
Actually,some URLs are blocked and some are not blocked.All URLS are http.
Weird.

Thank you Avast for the new version! It works very well. I had 1 minor issue: after the reboot in Win7 to finish the installation, the notification icon complained that Win7 didn't have an anti-virus program installed. I then rebooted a second time and all was ok.

It is a plug-in for Chrome,  if you have Google Chrome installed it should ask if you want it - or maybe it has installed it in the past?

I'm sorry, but this version just sucks.

First, the horrible win8-like UI. What the hell is wrong with everyone making their programs look like this PoS?

Second, I installed over my previous version (8.0.1497), rebooted and
a)no tray icon
b)double-clicking the avast shortcut on the desktop did absolutely nothing. NOTHING.
c)windows said no AV installed.

third, uninstalled, rebooted, re-installed and
a)the GUI took more than 5 minutes to appear, as well as the tray icon and the no AV installed notification.
b)Upon opening, the gui said that the avast service was not running, had to click on "start" to make it start. Should be automatic.

I'm REALLY not liking this version, too many issues.

ok, but the real size of full installer is 81 MB for free version...

I did a clean install but still can't make bootable USB with avast! Rescue Disk. 
When I tried to run AvastPE2.exe from RescueDisk folder I got this error message: "The program can't start because HTMLayout.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.".
I think that's why downloading of rescue disk is not starting and I can't make a bootable USB since the first beta too.

On the other hand, I must say that I installed over 8.0.1497 on my laptop and it went just fine. Also running win7 x64, AMD E2-2000, 4GB RAM.

Edit: No so smooth, after all. Even though avast is enabled, the action center prompts me to "enable avast".

Yes its there and when you add it, then click, it does a program update check.

I would have thought if having this option it would either, just display the Update section or do a virus definitions (and engines) update.

I just checked in Program Files and they are there,but I can't find them in UI.
Also there is no records in Scan History after two Quick scans.

Everything is OK with Scan History.I was wrong,but I still cannot find WebRep
and adblocker in UI.

Wait ..... it is the same as Avast!8 until it is scanning then rotates with blue.  It makes it more noticeable,   most of the time is just sits in the tray as it did in 8.  I think it is cool.  :)

Updated AIS thru AvastUI from 8.0.1497 to 2014 9.0.2006 on both machines.  Restarted windows when requested and was presented with the opt-out for Google Chrome.  I opted out and Chrome was not installed.  All settings were preserved.  Ran a quick scan.  So far, all seems fine.  I'm still exploring the new interface, and like it thus far.

just updated, so far i like it, the system tray icon is a little distracting with the blue colour animating all the time, one thing i dont like is when we do a scan , there is no longer the green progress bar on the taskbar, so i have to keep looking which % has been scanned, i really hope they bring this back, i loved knowing at a glance where my scan progression has gone just by looking at the taskbar without opening the UI  menu
It's still there, just look closely at the throbbing circle and around the "outer ring" is your progress indicator.  :)

Yes its there and when you add it, then click, it does a program update check.

•Dramatic reduction in product size (full installer < 60MB, compared to today’s 120MB) and memory footprint. By default, install is done through a new stub installer though (which has the advantage of always installing the most up-to-date version).
ok, but the real size of full installer is 81 MB for free version...

I did a clean install but still can't make bootable USB with avast! Rescue Disk. 
When I tried to run AvastPE2.exe from RescueDisk folder I got this error message: "The program can't start because HTMLayout.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.".
I think that's why downloading of rescue disk is not starting and I can't make a bootable USB since the first beta too.

Almost the same happen here, when i was trying to make a rescue-cd the first time download a lot of program xmlparser(was already updated in the system) and "¿window automation?", aftre that update the definition and supposed finishing the rescuecd iso.

The rescue cd iso is never is build.

I'm sorry, but this version just sucks.

First, the horrible win8-like UI. What the hell is wrong with everyone making their programs look like this PoS?

Second, I installed over my previous version (8.0.1497), rebooted and
a)no tray icon
b)double-clicking the avast shortcut on the desktop did absolutely nothing. NOTHING.
c)windows said no AV installed.

third, uninstalled, rebooted, re-installed and
a)the GUI took more than 5 minutes to appear, as well as the tray icon and the no AV installed notification.
b)Upon opening, the gui said that the avast service was not running, had to click on "start" to make it start. Should be automatic.

I'm REALLY not liking this version, too many issues.
There are issues. There always will be issues. It's just a software.

Anyway, it would be great if you could send us some logs. You've probably hit some scenario which wasn't covered during testing. Sharing your "logs/dumps/etc." allows us to make avast even better. And hopefully fix this problem.

Could you try to run avast service manually (run services.msc)? Does it fail? Check your Event log for errors (eventvwr.msc).

Found a bug

It is possible to change within the update settings of Avast to turn off Streaming updates, even if all parts of the program is shielded with a password.

Steps to reproduce (Win7): Right click on the Avast icon --> update --> choose program or definitions. Program asks for the password --> press cancel. Now you can change the settings of the update process, however, only ticking/unticking of streaming updates will result in changing the setting.

Changing the settings of updating the program/definitions to manual will not stick. Also if Streaming updates are turned off, Avast will continue to report that all is ok...

hello,

i found 2 bugs so far.

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1 German + all Updates incl. October 2013
avast: 9.0.2600 FINAL Free Edition - clean install / German

Bug 1: a translation mistake (see screenshot)

Bug 2: creating a rescue disc does not work (CD-Version). USB not tested. The appropriate files that are needed to create the cd are downloaded to the folder "AvastPEToolkit" in my user directory on c: but i've chosen to create the cd in my e: drive using the suggested name "rescue-disc.iso". Unfortunatly it gets never created even though the process says it's done (see screenshot)

Inconvenience: Amount of checked Mails is not shown since it's too small compared to files and web. This could cause the false assumption that the module is not working and should be handled with some sort of 2-way color scheme (see screenshot)

i'd like to add that the tests (quick, full, whatever) do NOT seem to be faster (like advertised if i remember up to 10x) at all, but are much SLOWER than with v8.0.1497 Final. Any explanation for that? Yea i made sure i use the same settings/exceptions like before so that's not it.

There is something VERY WRONG with avast 9. Today I installed it on a somewhat old computer (Sempron 2800+, 640MB RAM, winXP SP3) and after rebooting, it got stuck at the "welcome" screen (not frozen, mouse moved). I gave up after more than 10 minutes of waiting and forcefully shut the pc down. After booting again, it seemed to work ok.
This is obviously not normal behavior. I guess the devs rushed this version out without sanding off all the rough edges.
Just too many issues.

There is something VERY WRONG with avast 9. Today I installed it on a somewhat old computer (Sempron 2800+, 640MB RAM, winXP SP3) and after rebooting, it got stuck at the "welcome" screen (not frozen, mouse moved). I gave up after more than 10 minutes of waiting and forcefully shut the pc down. After booting again, it seemed to work ok.
This is obviously not normal behavior. I guess the devs rushed this version out without sanding off all the rough edges.
Just too many issues.

bye!
No problem on my old XP system but then it has 1.5GB RAM.

On my Win 7, Avast 2014 isn't talking.  I want the voice!  why did it stop when I installed 2014 (free)?

The talking voice should be the least of your concerns.
Better fix the HUGE (more than 10 minutes on old machines, 5 minutes on fast ones, totally unacceptable) waiting time after the first reboot. Or why doesn't the GUI appear or why doesn't the tray icon appear.
This version is riddled with bugs that should've been removed before making it public.

Post by: cnmoore on October 16, 2013, 09:47:40 AM
Right, jvidal.  I found that the reason for no voice was no updates happening.  I clicked the update button, was informed the database had been updated, but actually it hadn't.  When I checked "About" it was still 131015-0.

An antivirus that can't be updated is pretty useless.  I restored my Avast 2013 from my disk image. 

It is fortunate that I make a disk image every day, as I don't see any way to uninstall 2014.

Are there any PDF Quick Start Guides for 2014 yet? I couldn't find them on the Avast web site.

Post by: TickTock99 on October 16, 2013, 11:12:38 AM
This latest version still has many issues. 

OS: Windows 7x64 Pro
Updated thru the GUI, the same as any other update that I have done in the past three years.


A product update that requires 4 re-boots to work correctly should not have been released.

I will post back with more specific problems, and file bug reports when (not if) they occur.

Prior to this release I had never had any problems with Avast, and once the bugs are ironed out I am sure it will be a good product once again.

Installed the new Avast 2014 IS on my Win7-Ultimate-32bit. No problems so far, except one disable/enable to stop Action Center from reporting that Firewall was disable.

@True Indian
Yes, it happened for me too. Since yesterday's installation, I haven't seen any notification popup regarding updates. The option "Show last popup message" remains inactive! :)

I like some of the changes to Avast 9.

Unfortunately Avast! 9 Follows Windows 8's admittedly garish (yet also unimaginative and flat) UI; which is a shame as Win 8 has usability issues, especially with the lack of depth in the UI.

However, in Avast!'s UI there are a couple of hiccups, scroll bar where there needn't be - you shouldn't have to scroll a UI just to press a single 'OK' button (eg: update screen).

Glad to see Alwil have started paring back the multiple system shields to just 3; it was starting to get ridiculous.

Bug report: the window with the avast! Online Security options is not resizeable and can't be maximized. So, I can't fully customize the add-on in Firefox. I simply don't see all the options.
It seems that I found the cause of the bug (the screenshot is re-attached to this message).

I always refuse to install Google Chrome and as usual I unchecked the browser installation offers in Avast setup window. But when I started my Firefox, I detected the above described bug with avast! Online Security options. Other users told me that the options should be opened in a tab, not a separate window, but I couldn't manage to do that. The online service isn't vital for me, so I repaired my Avast and removed it.

A bit later I started my Speedyfox tool to optimize my Firefox and Thunderbird. I was surprised to see in the tool's window that I have a Chrome profile! Namely it was a file at the following address: C:\Users\<current_user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\extensions\WebNavigation.crx I checked my computer but didn't find any traces of Chrome except for that file in AppData folder. I manually removed the Chrome folder with its content and Speedyfox now detects no more Chrome profiles.

I didn't try to reinstall Online Security (a useless feature in comparison with Ghostery, BitDefender Traffic Lights and WOT) to check everything but I believe that the trace of Chrome in AppData folder was the cause of the bug. Something is still wrong with Avast installer.

Avast 7 and 8 UI were FAR better :( I tired to get used but it's just horrible in terms of beauty - I hope you'll consider it and may make a few changes. The avast 8 graphics (with he shields, the lights on each shield that were working, the cloud graphics - were just a total beauty.) - but not the 2014 one sorry guys.

2 days ago I installed new clean Windows 7 SP1 x64 and all updates with Avast 9 RC3 and everything worked great without any problem. Today I saw new final version and I decided to install it. Uninstalled RC 3, after that I used uninstall tool from Avast in safe mode, after that installed this "final" version there was blue screen (critical_structure_corruption) when i watched live stream on one page in Firefox . After that i decided to test my RAM in Memtest+86 and all passed without any error. I'm using Avast Free
Sorry for my English :)

Hi all,
I would like to point out a few things of the final version.
First of all it isn't completely translated in italian. This is not a problem for me but might be for others.
Second thing, I have again the problem of "Action Center" of windows. He tells me that avast is deactivated.
Another thing is a GUI glitch for the italian version of the Avast! Online Security Plug-in. In particular the button of "More Info" is translated in "Ulteriori Informazioni" but it doesn't fill properly the button, the words go out of it.
Lastly, I would like to known if i can keep the Avast! Online Security plug-in and the Avast! Ad-Blocker plug-in togheter or I have to uninstall the second one.
In fact Avast! Ad-Blocker plug-in has not been updated, It is still at version 8.0. There's a version 9.0 or now it is useless because...ehm... maybe integrated in Online Security plug-in??

Aaaaand....I've noticed it just now...Avast! Online Security plug-in can't be repositioned in Firefox.... ??? why???

Thanks to all for great job that you do and for who can solve my doubts  ;D

hello,

i found 2 bugs so far.

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1 German + all Updates incl. October 2013
avast: 9.0.2600 FINAL Free Edition - clean install / German


Bug 2: creating a rescue disc does not work (CD-Version). USB not tested. The appropriate files that are needed to create the cd are downloaded to the folder "AvastPEToolkit" in my user directory on c: but i've chosen to create the cd in my e: drive using the suggested name "rescue-disc.iso". Unfortunatly it gets never created even though the process says it's done (see screenshot)

In IE10 I could not join avast online security toolbar with menu bar like I joined WOT and menu bar.Also,in search results avast online security

Is this an error or does this mean that I can't update manually through the GUI. I'm asking because my system was one of the group who couldn't manually update from AIS 7 to AIS 8 from the GUI...we had to do a clean install. We all had  the wrong program version available listed in the update section of the GUI back then.

Thanks.

Aaaaand....I've noticed it just now...Avast! Online Security plug-in can't be repositioned in Firefox.... ??? why???

Unfixed bug.

No problem here, I moved the old webrep icon some considerable time ago and despite firefox and avast program updates. Since then the avast icon has remained in place on my browser, currently firefox 24.0.

AOS uses different technologies than WOT, Do Not Track Me, and PrivDog.
It's an added layer of privacy. I happen to use AOS, WOT and PrivDog together.
I like my privacy. For further security I use multiple web scanners.  :)

Sorry for stupidity of this...
Went from 8.0.1497-->9.0.2006 via UI. Seems to be OK. There used to be a page where the browser plug-in's could be enabled/disabled. Can't seem to find this in 2014?

[Dell deimension 4600 w/ 1.2GB RAM, WIN XP SP3]

EDIT[ADDED]: Also, ASVASTSVC is running constantly and is using 15-20% CPU and doing a lot of I/O, never HAD this with old version

EDIT[ADDED]: Rebooted and AVASTSVC has calmed down (for now). Something made it constanly run before?

Got everything working fine with just two reboots.  Like so many others, I've some several minor gripes about the new GUI, but they're mostly cosmetic issues and may well be changed in time.

A couple of improvements, though, and thanks to Avast for those ... mouse-over on the tooltray icon now shows the specific program and defs versions currently installed.  And when posting, I don't remember that "hide from suspicious visitors" button being there before, although of course it may well have been and I never had occasion to notice or use it.

Avast didn't start, was not removable, nor upgradable. Aaaargh. >:( >:( After a lot of trials i had to become member of this forum to load avastcleaner. With that i could restart Windows in safe mode and remove all Avast software, en now it's reinstalling Avast 2014. Hope it works fine now.

installer bloat factor:
v6.0, 61.2 MB
v7.0, 71.2-93.0 MB
v8.0, 106 MB
v9.0, 81.3 MB

I like the idea of simplifications such as reducing the number of shields to three. However I'm opposed to *any* major changes in the GUI because I must devote time to learning about and setting/tweaking them to suit my liking/needs.

So I may try 9.0 it but am not in a hurry. I'll have to read the bug/problem reports first, and may wait for the fixes. One of my computers still has 7.0, another 8.0, which are still working OK after I disabled all the popups and notices. Otherwise I was getting advertising popups for awhile.

Hi.  The new version seems to be working well for me.  This is not a big problem, but I am curious if there is a way to disable the green/yellow/red check marks that show up next to search results in Google, Yahoo, and etc.  I know this was possible in older versions.  I dug around in the new interface and in the settings for the browser plugin and did not see any way to disable the check marks.  I am wondering if I am missing something obvious and figured I would ask about it.

Go to your add/remove (Program and Features) function. Select avast! then select Change. From the drop down menu unselect Browser Protection.

I love the new version of Avast Free 2014 because I'm so please to see Rescue Disk bootable media is back from the dead since we had Avast BartCD in the past, which is a huge plus for users you can create a Rescue Disk bootable media (USB, CD, ISO) for offline scanning and cleaning. The tool is built on Windows PE (pre-installation environment) and, as such, it is recommended to create the media on a clean machine.

Basically, you will be able to boot into a new environment loaded with avast! Antivirus, which can be used to scan and clean the infected machine. It is a very light version of the application that can only scan defined areas.

I'm very happy with this release along side with my other security features side by side with Avast, great job Avast.

The new avast and Outpost Firewall 8.1.1 work perfectly fine here, there are several other members of this forum who also use Outpost firewall with no problems.

"Note" you cant use the web control module of Outpost with the new avast if you have that activated.

Who ever did the Danish translation of Avast 2014, needs to go over it again. There a lot's missing translations and very bad translations.

Can´t open the AvastUI, neither by left click nor right clicking the icon - have to start the AvastUI  by myself through the explorer.....

...looks like the automated start of dropbox(2.4.2) - incl. explorer refreshing! - kills avast!´s ballon window as well as the option to open the UI via right/leftclick.
No dropbox at startup and avast is accessible as it should be... at least at my machine.... ;)

Greetings
S@uDepp

Dropbox 2.0.22 working fine here, will upgrade and try to replicate.

Updated to 2.4.2, works fine, although I have disabled the Browser Protection plug-in as it is causing IE10 to hit an endless loop 'A problem with this page caused Internet Explorer to close and re-open the tab' on search results (DuckDuckGo).

...which BS are You on? Win8?

I installed the version 9,the UI is simply Horrible!!! Along with Windows 8 Avast have now a horrible UI!
I had some trouble installing it with Outpost firewall pro 8.1.1. Outpost didn't allow Avast to update even when I specified it to allow all Avast services to access internet.
So I make a downgrade to Avast 8.
Very disappointed....

I have used avast and outpost firewall for over nine years without major issue. I'm on the latest versions of both programs on win XP Pro and win7 32 bit and no problem on either system.

What elements of Outpost Firewall Pro (OFP) are you using ?
e.g. Did you elect to use the OFP Web Protect as it isn't really required with avast ?

This is OFP stopping changed/updated avast elements (and blocking changed elements) as the firewall is setup to do, nothing avast can do about that. This is an OFP issue, you need to have OFP allow avast.setup instup.exe for updates to take place (and the other new/changed elements of avast), if the entry is there then delete it and that should force OFP to ask permission again.

Or better still delete all entries for avast elements in OFP and put OFP on to Auto-learn mode for a few days whilst you use the updated avast.

EDIT: new avast update file name in avast 9 - instup.exe

Small correction Dave, avast.setup doesn't exist anymore. In V9 you've to allow instup.exe.

I have the same question. The program said latest version was to be 9.0.1500 .. now at the forums, it says it 9.0.2006 ... also I hope streaming updates can be turned off. On a slow DSL internet line, keeping them on will slow things down. I let them update every 90 minutes or so. More than enough.

If it is just a glitch which is causing multiple updates before getting to the current version then maybe the people who are seeing this should download the latest version direct from here http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=136785.msg1000473

The point of the streaming updates are:
1. You get them more quickly, meaning you are ahead of the curve on new malware outbreaks/developments.
2. They are considerably smaller as you aren't waiting longer for a larger update, so they really shouldn't slow your connection. Check out the avast\defs folder for the stream sub folders, example '99999999_stream' open that and you will see they are pretty small.

But it is your system and decision.

In regards to my first post about the version number, from within the UI the program did in fact, update to 9.0.2006 ... so far all is ok. UI is somewhat bland, needs a little color. And what is with the funny color of the Avast Tray Icon ? ? Normally, Orange, but now and then you see it changing to Blue for a bit (when it is animating, I think)

Hi,

I use Windows 7 32 bits, I have just install Avast Internet Security 2014 9.0.2006 and I usually use Wiimc, as client smb, to play videos and music.

Using Avast 8.x.xxx, I had no problem, but using Avast 2014 I can´t use smb, because I get an error from the share drive.

I have uninstalled Avast 2014 and reinstalled Avast 8 and all works correctly again.

It´s possible to fix this problem?

Thanks

No.

Suggest you reboot your system up to four times to see if that clears it up. 

The minimized toaster scan window is a new feature. 

If that doesn't fix it, then you are looking at a repair and/or clean install.  This depends on whether you updated thru the gui or did an uninstall/clean install of the new version when migrating to a newer version number (Version 8.0 > 9.0).  Always recommend a clean install when moving up a version as changes between can be major.

I cant get the firwall to start on avast premier 2014, looks like the driver installed ok, just wont start, in services I can manually start it but still doesn't register in avast, ive just updated to windows 8.1, which lead to the deletion of my avast premier. I have a feeling that the 8.1 update hasn't deleted something properly from thre previous install, if id of known avast wasn't going to be there after the update I would of uninstalled first, didn't have any messages telling me whats being deleted or anything, all I did was press the download button in the store, and 8.1 installed itself. Made a total mess of nearly all my desktop apps,many of them needed repairing and overwriting.

Tried updating from 8.0.1497 as part of routine maintenance today in XP SP3 Pro and my system shutdown and start-up times became horribly slow. On restart Avast doesn't even load in the tray nor did a couple of other things. Fortunately a system restore to two days ago appears (touch wood) to have fixed my machine. THIS AVAST 9 IS NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME sadly. Not crazy about the new GUI either. At last for me it's LESS intuitive...

Until I can replace this laptop with a new one running Win7 Pro or Ultimate, let me know when Avast 9 is fixed for XP!

Hola, veo que eres nuevo en el Foro. No soy experto en Avast pero voy a tratar de responder tu pregunta y darte algunas sugerencias.

Lo primero es que, si vas a escribir en Español, lo hagas en la sección en Español del Foro. Allí hay personas expertas que pueden contestar cualquier duda.

En segundo lugar, es probable que Avast sí funcione en un Windows crackeado. Sin embargo, te aconsejo que consigas una versión legal de Windows para evitar problemas.

Otra cosa, aquí en el Foro no son muy amigos de versiones crackeadas de software ni de Sistemas Operativos :-)

Recibe un cordial saludo, y bienvenido al Foro de Avast!

Those two can still access shared folders on two other computers that haven't been updated. But, they can't access shared folders on each other. Nor can the computers that haven't been updated access shared folders on the updated computers. I've tried adding the IPs of the other computers to Friends and even tried turning off the firewall. Neither helped. The folders still show as shared. Even tried sharing a new folder. No good either. Please help!

The amount of memory usage on the new Avast seems high just for the UI.  It quickly goes up to using 100,000 K of virtual memory if I open the UI up anytime.

Thx for the new version runs more smooth, but I really do not like the new interface, its a real mess.

Also there is no direct path to Global Exclusions via the GUI, one has to use the "link" provided 

found in Settings/Active protection/Web Shield/Web Shield settings/Exclusions

finally you get a link "This component is also applying global exclusions, you can check them here"

You're welcome.  BTW, never use a registry cleaner to optimize your system.  You'll not miss the headaches use of such can bring.

I've been using avast! antivirus for 2 + years now and my thoughts and opinion for that, are more than positive. As for the new Avast! 2014 (aka 9), I like its features very much, however the new UI is horrible - I'm sorry to admit, I just hate it and it's the first time I do.


Avast 7 and 8 UI were FAR better :( I tired to get used but it's just horrible in terms of beauty - I hope you'll consider it and may make a few changes. The avast 8 graphics (with he shields, the lights on each shield that were working, the cloud graphics - were just a total beauty.) - but not the 2014 one sorry guys.


Love ya though, ya know it!

I installed the version 9,the UI is simply Horrible!!! Along with Windows 8 Avast have now a horrible UI!
I had some trouble installing it with Outpost firewall pro 8.1.1. Outpost didn't allow Avast to update even when I specified it to allow all Avast services to access internet.
So I make a downgrade to Avast 8.
Very disappointed....

I have used avast and outpost firewall for over nine years without major issue. I'm on the latest versions of both programs on win XP Pro and win7 32 bit and no problem on either system.

What elements of Outpost Firewall Pro (OFP) are you using ?
e.g. Did you elect to use the OFP Web Protect as it isn't really required with avast ?

This is OFP stopping changed/updated avast elements (and blocking changed elements) as the firewall is setup to do, nothing avast can do about that. This is an OFP issue, you need to have OFP allow avast.setup instup.exe for updates to take place (and the other new/changed elements of avast), if the entry is there then delete it and that should force OFP to ask permission again.

Or better still delete all entries for avast elements in OFP and put OFP on to Auto-learn mode for a few days whilst you use the updated avast.

EDIT: new avast update file name in avast 9 - instup.exe

I use Outpost firewall pro on Windows 7 Ultimate 32bits,the web protection is always turnedoff by default.
Problem solved by specifying the rules:

 Settings/General/Application rules/INSTUP.EXE  and Edit/Network Rules and New- where the protocol is:TCP and direction is: outbound and remote port is HTTP,HTTPS ALLOW.

 POST UPDATE
 Also:
                                                                                                                New-where  the protocol is: TCP and direction outbound ALLOW

In previously occasions Outpost created the rules automatically. And I completely forgot to use auto-learn mode  :P

Why does Avast 9 only have three shields?

From the FAQ: http://www.avast.com/faq.php

The number of real-time shields in avast! 2014 is reduced by merging some of them to another. The P2P Shield, IM Shield and Behavior Shield are now a part of the File System Shield, while the Network Shield with Script Shield are a part of the Web Shield.

ok thanks.

 Ok 7 Shields in 3 but I used to have 8 on Avast anti-virus Pro; One is missed the rootkits shield maybe.

If you look at Tools, there is an option there for you to Purchase Sandbox.
So I would tend to think that the two are not exactly the same function.

This. I much prefer being able to see the activity on the shields when I open Avast rather than opening another window with the new Statistics bit. Also the look of the old shields, the way you could look at the old shields and see, for example, 443000/0 to know there hadn't been any problems.

Other annoyances are just cosmetic really, not being able to resize the main window, and scans no longer keep track of how long they've been running or how many files and folders they scanned.

Maybe I am just blind, but I used to be able to white-list (exclude) specific .exe files in the behavior shield, such as self rolled UltraVNC Single Click deployments that periodically get flagged by Avast and my users have to be coached over the phone how to allow them to run which is messy. I realize that Behavior Shield was rolled into file system shield in A2014, but it appears only paths can be excluded and not specific .exe files.

Yes, I realize I can create a folder on the client's desktops and globally exclude it's path, but then I have to direct them to open that folder to find my VNC icon and as simple as that sounds, that will be a problem for some people. Currently "Please double click the large lime green icon in the upper right hand corner of your desktop usually works", and I really don't want to get into adding "Yes, a folder... it looks like every other folder, kindof beighish... nope, that's the shortcut to your pictures... I labeled it in all caps. Do you see one with all caps? ... "  You see where I am going here ? ;)

It could also cause a problem with excluding specific virus removal tools that have no path rkill, combofix, roguekiller, tdsskiller, specialty tools of that nature; if in fact the ability to exclude specific .exes' is gone in 2014.

Say it ain't so Joe!  :'(

avast! doesn't disable Windows Defender on Win7 as far as i know. That only happens on Win8...

Yes correct,  Win Defender is an anti malware on 7 but anti virus on 8.

does an anti-virus not constitute as being an anti-malware?

They are all malicious so i seen no difference in this terminology.

Doing my routine clean and checking for virus/malware this morning, I find that windows defender as been re'enabled, avast usually turns this off and theres no way it can be turned back on unless you turn off avast, so, my theory is that avast 2014 premier is still not fit for release, firewall as been disabled properly, thers a message saying its being managed by avast, I don't get why at first install, windo3ws defender was disabled as it should be, now after starting my pc this morning, its enabled again, so many problems with this new release, tracing doesn't even work, hardended mode results in avast freezing up when you try to add an exclusion.

Yes, I had the same problem with WD, did u do a upgrade from win 8 to win 8.1? if so it can be it. Avast can ask Windows to disable WD sure, but Windows doesn't always listen :p However you should be able to disable it yourself witch seems impossible for some, even due it is disable from within WD. So to fix this you can turn of WD using group polices, http://www.ehow.com/how_6834770_disable-windows-defender-group-policy.html

You can run anti malware/spyware programs alongside Avast! (such as MBAM or Win Defender in 7)  but it is not advisable to run two antivirus program together  ie AVG with Avast!  or Microsoft Security Essentials with Avast!.  MSE is renamed Defender in Win 8 therefore is a different program to Defender in Win 7.

Deepscreen uses Dyna-Gen cloud based technology, making deepscreen much stronger and easier to use.

IMHO...Goodbye autosandbox and "hello" deepscreen.  8)

+1 As deepscreen is becoming a new defense weapon for Dyna-Gen cloud based technology, making deepscreen much stronger and easier to use.  ;)
Unfortunately it also gets things supremely wrong as it has classed the official facebook app for windows 8.1 as a virus, and I can't even take it out of the virus chest so it's unlikely to be usable for good.

With everything else that has gone wrong since I upgraded to avast 2014 and then windows 8.1, I'm feeling that I should never have installed avast 8 on my laptop and stuck with windows defender even with all the problems I've had with that.

would you believe it, avast 2014 as started blocking  ipv6 teredo now, working yesterday fine, ive uninstalled, wiped all avast entries, installed again, still blocks teredo ipv6 when firewall is on, also, when using secureline it completely disables teredo, never used to with previous version, I could still use it.Thisis really peeing me off, reinstalling/repairing and nothing comes it. Does anyone know what rules to add so teredo ipv6 will work without having to turn firewall off and on first. Don't understand why its just started blocking it though, the rules must of been there before.

I have a question in relation to updates. The main reason I went with Avast is of course it is free, but the updates are smaller in size than Trend Micro's products.

I am assuming the virus updates are still small in the new version less than 2mb  ? As I have a limit of how much I can download each month .

It is rubbish, I am have more problems than it's worth.
Uses up vast amount of ram, crashes Win 7, Re-aligns Icons & looks Friggin awful.
The 2013 version worked wonderfully, silently in the backround.
This monster is utter crap.

Looks nice but you should show the antivirus program services again, like mail protection, web, etc...
Because you just made it look like avira, comodo and avg. You might not lose members but new people won't see why they should chose avast. You should show off with the program a little bit.  ???

This. I much prefer being able to see the activity on the shields when I open Avast rather than opening another window with the new Statistics bit. Also the look of the old shields, the way you could look at the old shields and see, for example, 443000/0 to know there hadn't been any problems.

Other annoyances are just cosmetic really, not being able to resize the main window, and scans no longer keep track of how long they've been running or how many files and folders they scanned.

Sometimes I leave my home machine connected to the internet and goes to work, and when I come back I check whether Avast! found anything suspicious. In this new version I do not see this option. In addition, the new GUI is a candy to the eye but the previous one was more convenient to understand, in my opinion.
Anyway, thank you Avast! for a great product.

Hi, I installed avast internet security, firewall does not work, an error firewall is disabled and does not turn on. Installed on a clean windows 8.1 operating system, what could be wrong? Thank you for your help.
I had exact same error on premier, I used the uninstall software in safemode, then manually removed the left overs, rebooted, set windows firewall to default settings and then turned it off (not in services), continued to install avast, worked for me, although, ive come across some bugs in premier, like tracing doesn't work, blocks teredo Ipv6(found a workaround for that, just restart windows firewall inservices even though its started already, then go and switch off again). All in all, seems a lot quicker thn previous build, on startup and surfing. Anyone notice how messed up networking is in windows 8.1?, non of the miniport drivers ever load until its to late, used be enabled all the time in windows 8, theres no turn sharing on or off option in the network list when you click on the icon either, what the hell are you supposed to do lol.

if possible could you make a tutorial to help users config it better?
the full scan setting has a neat future , where you can choose where a full scan searches by default
which leads to my other query, when i had version 8 and ran a full scan it would scan svc: xxx (network) first then go unto drives, with the setting in 9 it doesnt scan the network

Post by: Foxfan100 on October 21, 2013, 10:01:30 AM
I'm running the paid version of Avast Internet Security 2014.9.0.2006.160 on Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, on a desktop machine.

This version was installed via an online update from version 8. This all seemed to go smoothly, although I had the problems others have reported, of Windows not seeing Avast as installed/running/protecting in Control Panel Security settings. This also happened on another laptop machine running a Home version of Win 7. However, I did resolve these problems.

Now, the Avast taskbar icon has disappeared from those loaded at startup on my desktop. It works fine on the other laptop machine, which is set up the same way.

My machine is configured to boot and start, without password needed, to my "standard" Admin account. It does this as normal, but the Avast icon doesn't appear in the taskbar (all the others do). A check via Taskmanager shows that the UI IS running, as are the services, and Control Panel confirms this. The laptop requires a password at startup.

IF I log off my "standard" admin account and log on to my Win 7 "Super Administrator" account (the only other account I have configured on this machine), and then log back to the usual account, the Taskbar icons are reloaded and this time INCLUDE the animated Avast icon.

My machine is being protected, but the downside is that I cannot access Avast to change settings, scan etc, if the icon isn't present in taskbar. Trying to run Avast from the desktop link (i.e. start another instance), doesn't do anything.

Any ideas?

I'd prefer not to reinstall Avast, with all the possible problems with the license file etc.

Don't see my first post on this topic.
Avast told me I should update/upgrade to the latest version. I did. Now my system is NOT protected! I have a PAID  subscription, according to Avast it is good until 8/10/2015, but has 0 days remaining! I clicked the "Resolve All" nothing happens, I clicked the Start where it says the avast!service is off, again nothing happens. Rebooted twice, no change. WTF did you do? From reading posts here it looks like the upgrade was tailored for Win8 users. I should not have to waste time trying to get this working, it should work like any other upgrade/update that I have installed. Is this part of Obama Care? Did you hire people who designed that site?

I just upgraded to Avast 2014 9.02006  131021-0? rebooted and now noticed that windows 7 action window is showing no firewall, no virus protection and no spyware protection.  I click on to activate Avast Security Suite and action window is not reflecting choice.  It seems this new update is not working with windows 7.

ops--windows 7 64 platform, using chrome browser. 

Is anyone having this condition?   Do I have protection or not?  Should I have done a clean upgrade?  Help!

The new version is ok.
I am having one glaring issue tho and duplicated on 3 computers running Win7 & 8 both 64bit.
The browser exclusions are not working for me nor are the Script Exclusions or telling Avast
to ignore Mozilla Firefox.

I did a clean install on all 3 PCs and have the same problem.

Ended up having to disable the Browser Scan in order for my gaming sites to work. (Pogo.com)

I have not read all 23 pages of this thread so I do not know if this issue was a known problem
or not.

Reply for:Fix For Avast Not Being Detected in Windows
and Reply #355
Sounds like same problem I'm having. Fix for Avast Not Being Detected in Windows does not work for me; I cannot turn ANY shields on. I manually started the avast service but still no change, all shields down, NOT protected. As previously stated Win7 Ultimate 64bit.
Update: Thanks for the NO HELP AT ALL! I can't even go to the restore point that Avast created. It says a file was damaged or deleted during restore, and cannot restore to previous point, funny but all my restore points are now gone, only the avast one is listed, and it is now useless. Meanwhile my system is unprotected, thanks for this great update. I can't even uninstall this version, I tried; nothing happens. Whatever this update did it screwed my system and now I've spend most of the day trying to fix it.

Is there a way to get the GUI back before this 2014 bland "Streamlined look" was released?  I updated the 2013 program in hopes of some bug fixes without coming to the forum first.  Next thing I know, after the reset, this horrible (my opinion) new "Streamline" GUI is presented.  It's like going from Windows 7 to Windows 8 with that...ugly Tiles interface and you're not aware that the Start Menu will be GONE and replaced this this...thing.

 Is there a Skin/Theme Pack?  I won't install Windows 8 nor 8.1 because of the flat/bland Tile graphics.  I know there are tools to install to change it.   I really am not in favor at all of the 2014 look.  I don't get why so many companies all want to be Microsoft Lemmings since Windows 8's....bland look.  I love change, when it Looks good or you have a choice.

 So, please, consider users who weren't expecting this "New Streamlined" look.  I haven't updated my iPhone 5 from iOS 6.1.3 to 7 either because of the extremely flat and bland look. (Jobs would have been angry).
If there aren't any GUI packs, then perhaps that's another cool idea.

Thanks for reading.

A brand new version will always have issues.I find it better to wait after an bugfix update before installing an entirely new upgrade and this applies to most software.
Tried updating from 8.0.1497 as part of routine maintenance today in XP SP3 Pro and my system shutdown and start-up times became horribly slow. On restart Avast doesn't even load in the tray nor did a couple of other things. Fortunately a system restore to two days ago appears (touch wood) to have fixed my machine. THIS AVAST 9 IS NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME sadly. Not crazy about the new GUI either. At last for me it's LESS intuitive...

Until I can replace this laptop with a new one running Win7 Pro or Ultimate, let me know when Avast 9 is fixed for XP!

Is Avast going to fix this disaster, or just ignore XP and for that matter, Win7? I've had Avast since 5 and updated to 6, 7, and 8 without issue. The GUI was usually improved each time and easier to navigate. With 9 while I had it, that was ANYTHING but the case. I've recommended Avast to countless people too! Are they NUTS with this release?! "One size fits all" just ain't working.

VERY disappointed...

AND..., BTW..., after doing a system restore and many reboots, the box is now working normally after starting, but shutdown has lengthened to 21 - 28 seconds from what WAS 5 - 7. Took two hours and missing an important dinner to get back up and running on Avast 8.

Whoever designed Avast 9 must have worked in DC... ;-(, or is only interested in clients on Win8. Business will be on 7.1 until well into 2019. WHAT were they thinking???!!!

Sorry for the rant, but unless there is a radical fix, I'm going to need to find another AV solution for the Haswell machine I have to buy before the end of the year. VERY disappointed...

I have upgraded Avast 2 to Avast 3, Avast 3 to Avast 4, etc., over the years, without any problems ... until now.  I upgraded three computers today - one with XP Home Edition, the other two with XP Pro.  All three computers malfunctioned after the update.  That is a 100% FAILURE rate on Avast's part.  I had to reboot in safe mode on all three machines (Control Panel would not open - one of the MANY malfunctions) to uninstall (restoring to restore points has never worked for me), then reinstall the latest version 8 for which I have a full install (8.0.1489, from May, apparently).  Note to Avast: Microsoft is supporting Windows XP until April 8, 2014.  Avast MUST work with Windows XP until that time.

I have spent more then 6 hrs to read thru all the posts on this topic it seems many have faced issues with upgrade to 2014 on Win XP. I am also facing issues with similar nature on XP has anyone been able to find a solution to this?

Pl share steps to fix the issue in case anyone has cracked it.

first i get notified that my Virus definition is out of date and with i try to either update the definition or the program the connection hangs for ever. I am suspecting most of the XP users are facing similar issues.

I have also submitted the Ticket on support.avast.com awaiting reply...

Suggest you try a system restore to a few days ago and maybe you'll get lucky. Then stick with Avast 8. IMO only another fresh release of Avast 9 will correct this, if they even care. I'm looking for alternatives for my next machine unless they come up with something good. This release was one major screw-up. :-(

Name of item is APOD.exe, it does sound suspicious so I don't blame avast, what a stupid thing to call it if its not a virus. I don't have a clue what app it was I cant see any missing, so its only removed the exe. Its a brandnew release intended for win 8.1 users so they can carry on using there fav antivirus, the main focus as been getting it to run on win8.1 give them time, there wil be a patch/fix, they will be working as we type.

System freezes after automatic installation of 2014. Had to go back to previous registration point which resulted in a non working version of Avast (registration not valid - not able to get a registration).
Download from Avast website of 2014 also resulted in freeze. Cannot remove Avast from computer.

How do I solve this?

Boot Up of Windows XP SP3 is Stuck

My system is Windows XP SP3.  Installed AVAST 2014 (9.0.2006) in safe mode with networking as administrator.  Re-booted my system into normal mode.  Everything functions properly.  Then I completely shut down my system.

This morning, I powered on my system, and booted up Windows in normal mode.  My system boots through the Windows XP splash screen, then it becomes stuck right before the desktop appears, with a blank screen and missing icons.

Re-booted Windows a few more times in normal mode.  Exactly the same result each time.  My system is stuck.

Re-booted Windows in safe mode with networking as administrator.  Through the Windows Services panel (services.msc), I set Avast to "manual" start-up and clicked Apply, then OK.

Re-booted Windows in normal mode.  My Windows XP system boots up properly, except Avast is not started.  Through the Windows Services panel (services.msc), I manually start up Avast, which Avast starts up properly.

I may have to set the Avast start-up to manual, until this problem is fixed.  By the way, I did not have this problem with the previous version of Avast (version 8.*)

Because I had a previous problem installing Avast in normal mode.  It installed properly in normal mode.  I rebooted in normal mode.  Then Avast would not start properly, and the icon would not appear in the bottom right hand corner next to the clock.

Furthermore, my Windows Control Panel would not start, and became stuck.  My Windows Control Panel would function properly again, after I uninstalled Avast 9.*.

None, except Avast.  Previous Avast 8.* functioned properly on my system.  Did a complete uninstall of Avast 8.* from Windows Control Panel, before installing the latest Avast 9.*.

Use the mirror link as the main site will always try to deliver the current version.

1. First select the old version that you want (see image1).

2. Use the FileHippo Mirror link, not the Download This Version button or text.

Your download worked as you followed  the directions in my post Reply #382 with the images and you confirmed that it had.

My post was directly to 'ManfromUN' the post above it, who was reporting getting the 81.5mb download despite clicking on 8.0.1497 of 125MB download for avast 8.

I’m very disappointed  with the new version of Avast . I had to uninstall in my two machines . One  is win xp and the other Vista . On both  it was a complete mess . I went back to previous version 8 and now its OK .

Sorry for above comments . Now  I installed  Avast Internet Security without any problem . Program cannot be installed over existing one , you must first uninstall existing version using  aswclear in SAFE MODE an the proceeded to install the new version that you have previously downloaded to your desktop

Everytthing is OK now.

I suggest you disconnect from internet until new program is installed . Then reconnect and wait everything updates .

Why did you choose to install avast! while in Safe Mode ???

Because I had a previous problem installing Avast in normal mode.  It installed properly in normal mode.  I rebooted in normal mode.  Then Avast would not start properly, and the icon would not appear in the bottom right hand corner next to the clock.

Furthermore, my Windows Control Panel would not start, and became stuck.  My Windows Control Panel would function properly again, after I uninstalled Avast 9.*.

None, except Avast.  Previous Avast 8.* functioned properly on my system.  Did a complete uninstall of Avast 8.* from Windows Control Panel, before installing the latest Avast 9.*.

http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility in safe mode, then reboot into normal and reinstall avast

This is what I did this evening:

1.  Booted my Windows XP SP3 system into safe mode with networking as administrator.

2.  Ran the Avast uninstall utility.  It removed Avast (or so it said).  Verified that Avast is not present in the Add/Remove Programs panel in the Windows Control Panel.

3.  Rebooted in normal mode.  Installed latest Avast 9.* from website, with no problems so far.

4.  Rebooted again in normal mode.  Icons on bottom right hand corner not appearing properly, particularly Avast is not showing up at all.

5.  Rebooted again in normal mode.  Windows starts-up normally through the splash screen.  Then it becomes stuck before the desktop is suppose to appear.


My only remedy at the moment is one of the two below:

1.  Set the Avast start-up to "manual" in the Windows Services panel (services.msc); or,

2.  In the Avast troubleshooting menu, check mark the "Load avast! services only after loading other system services"


In either case, I would then start up Avast manually by clicking on the desktop icon.

After reading a number of posts, and screwing up 2 computers....I have come to the conclusion that AVAST 2014 sucks! I installed it (via the program upgrade option) on a Windows 7 Pro in a Domain Controlled network. The firewall would not enable with the extremely descriptive error "AVAST cannot start the firewall"....boy, don't you know that sure gave me a clue as to where to start troubleshooting. After an hour or two, I gave up and went back to Version 8. The next install was on a Windows 7 Ultimate machine. Upon reboot, all hell broke loose. There were so many things wrong, I didn't even attempt to troubleshoot the problem(s). The next trick was trying to remove the Ver. 9 software. Every time I tried to uninstall, the computer would hang at creating a system snapshot. I tried to kill the process AvastUI....yeah, good luck with that. Then I tried Revo Uninstaller...it hung up when the Avast program uninstaller started...hence reboot #3. I tried to manually remove the software....then I hit myself in the nuts with a hammer because I thought it might take my mind off removing this piece of crap software. I finally booted to MiniXP and deleted the directory structure in Program Files, then it was back to reboot #(who the hell knows, 'cause I lost count). I manually went through the hive and removed the traces of Avast which I thought would allow the computer to actually reboot to an error free Win7. Installed Ver. 8 and all is well. (Except my nuts still hurt!) After all that, I find out that there is a program called aswclear.exe. If I could, I would love to shove the printed copy of the software code for 2014 up somebody's ass.

I have spent more then 6 hrs to read thru all the posts on this topic it seems many have faced issues with upgrade to 2014 on Win XP. I am also facing issues with similar nature on XP has anyone been able to find a solution to this?

Pl share steps to fix the issue in case anyone has cracked it.

first i get notified that my Virus definition is out of date and with i try to either update the definition or the program the connection hangs for ever. I am suspecting most of the XP users are facing similar issues.

I have also submitted the Ticket on support.avast.com awaiting reply...

Hello,

Try to repair the program manually:

Click on "Start", find "Control Panel" and click on it. A new
window will open. In this window you should see the icon " ADD/REMOVE
PROGRAMS" or "Programs and Features". Again, you should click on it. Then choose the "avast!
Antivirus" and select "REPAIR".

If this does not help.

You can try to reinstall the program using the avast! uninstall utility, which can be downloaded from this web page, and save it to your hard drive:

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe

Before running the uninstall utility, you have to first boot in safe mode (how to boot in safe mode: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/boot_failsafe.mspx?mfr=true). Or disable the avast! self-defense module. To do this, open the avast! Settings, select troubleshooting, then uncheck the box "Enable avast! self-defense module".

Restart your computer.
Now download the avast! antivirus 2014 from the link or our web page below:

Free:http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
Pro: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
Internet Security: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe
Premier: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup.exe

Please save the installation file onto your computer and then run it to re-install the avast! program.


If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me again.

It would certainly be nice if instructions are kept as up-to-date as the program itself.
1. The uninstall utility prompts you for permission to boot into safe mode before it actually does it's job.
Therefore booting into safemode first, is not needed.
2. Always download the programs needed to remove your current protection before you remove that protection.
The last thing you wan to d is be on-line without any protection.
Just my 2 cents. :)

I just want to point out that iam unable to start and use windvd ever since i updated my avast 8.x version to 9.x (2014) !!!
The application crashes resulting in total windows freez some how..!!!

Even taskmanager is blank when i summon it !!!???


I have made an topic about it in the hopes to get an strait answer/fix/sollution (take ur pick)...

Have tried myself to overcome this obstacle:

1. add windvd to exclusion lists from avast
2. uncheck some defensive features through troubleshooting section from avast !!
3. disable all shields
4. To all above ↑ NO AVAIL !!!!!!!
5. The only thing that solves this is uninstall AVAST completely from my system !!!!!!!!!!!!


So.... is that a SERIOUS BUG in AVAST or what !?


my system specs are:
OS: Win7 x64 SP1 (up to date)

The installation goes through without any problems even with avast! running.
Opening WinDVD is a different story. once installed, it's opening screen appears and then,
nothing. No error messages no freezing, it just doesn't work. The actual program never starts.

OK. I guess that's right, because I just did a reboot and it didn't pop up. But I did not clearly see anything in the popup saying the VPS had been updated; just the stuff about "FB". I'll look at it more closely next time. Thanks.

What do you expect on a support forum, they come to report problems, those without problems generally don't come to say that the update was OK. So you will always get a skewed set of figures.

I'd like to report an issue with AVAST 2014 messing up Windows Media Center 7 ability to use network Tuners (Silicone Dust).

Troubleshooted it for a day and gave up and had to apply an OS image from before AVAST 2014 upgrade.

I think it's related to the thread on SMB shares being inconsistantly available and how AVAST 2014 is toggling Win Firewall on/off inconstantly.

All was well in previous AVAST and how it always left Win7 firewall ON.

Version: 2014.9.0.2006 Free Antivirus

My license is about to expire and I got an email telling how to do it, but the directions are inaccurate. This version does not seem to have a place to re-register. The email instructions I got are:

How to register?
-    Open your avast! program via the desktop icon or Start menu
-    Click ‘Maintenance’ in the left pane and from the unfolded submenu select 'Registration'
-    Select ‘Register’ in the left menu
-    Click the ‘Register now’ button in the main white area
-    Select your option, fill in the form, and submit it
-    You are then protected for another year.

Problems:

- There is no maintenance tab on the left pane. Tabs are Status, Scan, Tools, Store, My Devices, Help, Statistics, Settings

- There is no "Register" option anywhere in this program. I have looked everywhere. In earlier versions, this was easy to find.

- The only "Maintenance" options are in the "Settings" tab on the left pane, but there is no option to register anything. Options under this maintenance are "Auto-Cleanup", "Logs" and "Virus Chest", nothing more.

- At the top of the main "Status" window, it says I am using Free Antivirus and says I have 30 days left on my license, but there is no option anywhere to register it again. This seems to be a huge oversight as options to re-register an expiring license should be extremely easy to find like in previous versions, but it is nowhere to be found in this one.

After update to IS 2014  Avast blocks Delphi debugger (XE4). Once I start debugging a program, a message pops up saying 'Unable to create process here-is-my-debugged-program'. Seems like the debugger has no permissions at all. Didn't find a way to unblock it, added it to all exceptions lists but no good. Turning off Avast screens doesn't help, either. Can the problem be solved or I have to roll back to 8 and wait for an update?

Thanks Bob, for pointing that out ... → AGAIN !!

Exactly, Windvd starts alright but the windvd window acts weird and indeed hangs/freez...   Just try to click on the window and u'll see what i mean ...  u get the hourglass , and if you press the keys CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to summon task manager you will get BLANK .. WHITE = EMPTY window to see !!!

The only thing you can do from that point forward to rectify it is to log of and log back in !!!

Oh well, have been an long avast user for an long time .... BUT i never have had SUCH an problems with avast from this magnitude ... not even close to that !!!!!!
Seems AVAST 9.x wosnt ready for public release if u ask me and judging from the many reports that other people have made ever since the release  ... !!

Unlike you, Kabster, I don't have a problem with the system freezing.
I just can't make the program run.
Considering there are millions of programs, it's always probable that there will be
some that don't behave well together until the conflict's have been worked out.
I'm sure that'll also happen for this conflict.
I don't use WinDVD so for me, this isn't urgent.
I'm sure that those that do use the program, this is extremely important. :)

Well... system freez is bit exagurated since i can get it right again just by loggin off and on ...
But i cant use windvd too..

So, u say nothing freezes ... so u can shut down windvd application window on your desktop ..??  Or doesn't windvd even appear before u when u start it up ... which of the two is it ?

In my case windvd starts alright but then it freeez... but wait now that i come to think of it ...
Windvd always disables my windows earo feature .... after it starts... and at that point the application crashes while avast is running in the background..!!!

Its plausible that this problem is an combination of the both windvd and windows earo !!!??  hmmm.... but then again ... my windows earo is alway enabled by default and that doesnt seemed to upset avast ...

Maybe going from earo to basic does !!!

oh well....

no use to break my head about it ... its clear avast has some bugs to deal with !!

ah... but bob i see why the application behaves differently on ur system...  its because of that splash screen... you can disable that splash screen in windvd...

And that splash screens happend to be turned of in my case... :)

Mayhap, thats why i probebly get to see the window from windvd !!

Try and turn of the splashscreen in safe mode perhaps !!   since you cant do anything in windvd because of avast !!...


EDIT:  Bob... you are using WINDVD PRO 10 are you ?  NOT windvd 11 or later ?
Iam asking because i dont get an splash screen in windvd 10 and there isnt any option to turn such an thing of in windvd 10..
Therefor you should get to see the window from windvd 10 application when u load it !!?

weird

I can't access the program since it never opens in regular mode and,
I can't make changes in Safe Mode because WinDVD doesn't open in safe mode.
I assume because it's unable to load it's needed drivers in safe mode.
I booted into safe mode shorty after I had installed WinDVD in hopes of being able to block avast!
and then run WinDVD without success because WinDVD doesn't run in safe mode.

Maybe I'm missed this mentioned somewhere else, but the new version is listed as 9.0.1500, NOT 9.0.2006 under program update available in my GUI.
Is this an error or does this mean that I can't update manually through the GUI. I'm asking because my system was one of the group who couldn't manually update from AIS 7 to AIS 8 from the GUI...we had to do a clean install. We all had  the wrong program version available listed in the update section of the GUI back then.
Thanks.
If the new version is 9.0.2006 why does my Maintenance window say 9.0.1500? I'm using 8.0.1497.
Thanks.

as Avast 2014 doesn't support OS lower than WinXP SP3 we had to create an update of v8 that will check your system compatibility - 8.0.1500 (aka 9.0.1500). If your system fulfills the requirements you are seamlessly updated to 9.0.2006. There is no way how to "show" immediately the final version 9.0.2006...

Have you tried removing avast! with the removal tool, removing WinDVD,
the reboot, re-install WinDVD, reboot, reinstall avast! reboot and then,
see if there's any change ???

Reply for:Fix For Avast Not Being Detected in Windows
and Reply #355
Sounds like same problem I'm having. Fix for Avast Not Being Detected in Windows does not work for me; I cannot turn ANY shields on. I manually started the avast service but still no change, all shields down, NOT protected. As previously stated Win7 Ultimate 64bit.
Update: Thanks for the NO HELP AT ALL! I can't even go to the restore point that Avast created. It says a file was damaged or deleted during restore, and cannot restore to previous point, funny but all my restore points are now gone, only the avast one is listed, and it is now useless. Meanwhile my system is unprotected, thanks for this great update. I can't even uninstall this version, I tried; nothing happens. Whatever this update did it screwed my system and now I've spend most of the day trying to fix it.

Could you zip and send us your logs? It would help to analyze why the service isn't running

I only get the Splash screen. The program itself never opens.
If I select a file assigned to WinDVD it also never starts just see the splash screen.

ah... but bob i see why the application behaves differently on ur system...  its because of that splash screen... you can disable that splash screen in windvd...

And that splash screens happend to be turned of in my case... :)

Mayhap, thats why i probebly get to see the window from windvd !!

Try and turn of the splashscreen in safe mode perhaps !!   since you cant do anything in windvd because of avast !!...

cheers,
I can't access the program since it never opens in regular mode and,
I can't make changes in Safe Mode because WinDVD doesn't open in safe mode.
I assume because it's unable to load it's needed drivers in safe mode.
I booted into safe mode shorty after I had installed WinDVD in hopes of being able to block avast!
and then run WinDVD without success because WinDVD doesn't run in safe mode.

Hey bob,

Rest asure, from experience i can tell you that windvd also starts in safe mode... 
But again, avast might affect safe mode aswell you seee !!

err.... by the way... are you using windvd pro 10 ?

if so , which update revision are u using ?

mine is up to date and is version 10.0.6.104.517159 ( for Corel )

I even have tested windvd prior to the avast install ... and ofcourse windvd worked like an charm untill i installed avast ... BAM.. .same mayhem !!!

And disable features in avast defense  didnt help either ... hell, even disable avast its shields didnt work, nor adding windvd to all and i do mean ALL EXCLUSION LIST from all the different protection services that avast uses..

i.e webshield, fileshield etc ;.... !,

EDIT: yes bob, install .. Uninstall .. install and time and time again wont just solve this matter.

Again, windvd WORKS just GREAT AS LONG AS AVAST 2014 ISNT INSTALLED !!  therefor, AVAST needed to BEE UNINSTALLED ASAP in order for me to make use of my favorite dvd software player again :D

A problem for Avast to tackle. I've already alerted a moderator.
As I mentioned earlier, it isn't critical for me since I don't use WinDVD.
I will however leave it on my system to check on resolution progress or,
as a reminder that the fix is still needed.

But then again, it woudn't surprise me if avast woud have caused many crashes (bsod and others) while i wos watching videos, or playing games ... yes games that do not seem to crash anymore since i have uninstalled avast ..

OK....question............

I know from this post below that Avast prior versions could be run with Windows 7 Defender.
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=38283.0
But this version comparison from Avast for v9 shows it to be A/V AND Spyware/Malware
http://www.avast.com/en-us/compare-antivirus
I'm running W7 64bit with V8 now (waiting for v9 to be more stable) with WD....both real time, both have nightly (different time) scans.
My fallback is to MalwareBytes (not real time) for scan if something is missed by above.
I know Windows 8 "Defender" is not same as Windows 7 and should not be used with Avast.....the rule of thumb is one A/V + one MW/Spyware is Ok. However, with Avast V9 is this now both A/V + MW/Spyware (?)....so in other words do not run WD in W7 ?

I've found WD for W7 to be redundant and not very good at real-time detections/blocks, either.  Rule of thumb here is to run only one real-time antispyware scanner at a time, and avast! antispyware real-time scanner is sufficient for your needs just by itself.  Otherwise, if you choose to run both, greater system resources are used to do the same/slightly different thing by two different real-time antispyware scanners.  This seems to result in the case of wasted system resources that otherwise could be used elsewhere.  So, no.  It's really not a question of whether they are compatible or not, it is just that one is not very good at what it purports to do.  WD, that is.

Made a clean pc. Re-install avast and.....no fire wall. Now I know the reason for the virus.
I shut down the W7 firewall. Could be a conflict. NOPE  :'(

This is a verry bad update!!!!  >:(
Is there a Dutch version?

When I updated avast! to version 9.0.2006 through the GUI three days ago, I was one of the guys that encountered no problems at all except for this bug. Then, today I decided to uninstall through the uninstall utility, then reinstall avast!, just to have a clean installation, not expecting anything but... I have the voices and the correct pop-pup now! I already noticed this twice: the first just after re-installation, the second half an hour ago. I'm using the Italian language, and the OS is XP SP3.

Note that after uninstalling avast! I also deleted two remaining folder containing settings and located in appdata (or documents and settings). Not sure if this is relevant, just saying.

Strange...

Jim Isom, this sounds like a firewall issue.  In your firewall settings, delete any rules that pertain to Avast.  When you next run a browser, your firewall should ask for permission to allow Avast again.  You should do so.  What firewall are you using?

Suggest you do a system restore to a couple of days ago which worked for me in XP Pro SP3 and stick with the last version of Avast. This update is an unbridled disaster for me after being able to upgrade from 5 to 6, 6 to 7 and 7 to 8 with no issues. Good luck! My shutdown times are still a bit slow but otherwise fully functional.

Unless Avast does a radical revamp of 9 for XP and Win7 users, my next machine this year will be running something different. Really a pity considering how well Avast worked prior to this screw-up. This "update" OUGHT to have come with a warning label for loyal prior users!

Incorrect? One shouldn't IMHO need to be a geek to use a program update from the GUI without issue. If you're fine doing R&D for the vendor, that's fine. It certainly isn't fine in my book. NO thanks!

There is silence from Avast on that atm.  :)

I get the pop-ups but no sound although I am not bothered about some girl telling me what I can read.  I also have an occasional problem with the Avast! icon in the system tray being unresponsive to both mouse over and left click,  opening from the start menu still works.  A computer reboot solves the situation and I have only had it about 4 times since updating to 2014 (back in RC2).

Since updating to the latest Avast IS i can no longer access my laptop with my media
server (Mede8erX3D1000).
I see a lot of other people are having the same problem with various other media servers,
and it's all down to the Avast firewall.
I had to remove the Avast firewall while doing a custom install so my media server would work
again.
Do you think there will be a fix for this sometime soon.Was working fine before the update.

Could anyone explain why such a difference and its purpose, as well as the impact on the system security ?
On top of that the V 9 sound function seems to be disabled, as well as the update and scan pop-ups.

How do we know this is not actually intended and the pop ups have been intentionally removed.?

Because it works here. (See screenshot)

So, any idea why it isn`t working for me? Still just getting the facebook security message and no voice when VPS update occurs.

I get box message  "the avast mail shield encountered a problem with the secure connection to your mail server. you may need to configure the ssl scan feature manually".  All that offers me is to shut off scanning ssl mail.  It does not tell me which mail account it is triggering on.  Win 8.1 current.  Thunderbird.  EDIT: all mail works fine.  But it keeps giving me this message, perhaps once a day.

From the moment I rebooted after installing 2014 I encountered problems....and it appears I'm not alone!
Running Windows 7 Home Edition. Noticed after reboot a red cross over my network connection icon in the r/h side of task bar. Said "no network connection" and was unable to access the net, just a white screen from IE10, after another reboot I was back connected and could get on the web, however a yellow exclamation mark covers the Avast icon in the tray and a yellow box pops up stating ATTENTION. Opening up Avast I'm greeted with a yellow box again stating "ATTENTION, some shields are off" The "turn on" or "resolve" buttons do nothing when clicked!!! Checking the active protection section it shows all my shields are in fact switched on?? Tried turning off the web shield but nothing happens, it still says it's switched on. The outcome of this is that IE freezes up every hour or so and I lose connectivity to the web and thus have to reboot to get it back. Kind of annoying 6 plus times a day!!! I have tried a system restore with the self defence option switched off, that didn't work(didn't work in safe mode either) Shame there isn't a roll back to previous version as that worked just fine!! Considering a full uninstall, just a shame I don't have a copy of the older version I could re-install to use whilst this one gets de-bugged! I have a feeling it might be some time before all these bugs are fixed!

@ Pat_2  The reason for the difference is that avast cleaned out some old unneeded definitions.
               v2014 uses better technology thus the need for expansive number of definitions is
               greatly diminished. End result is better protection.  8)

From the avast FAQ (http://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB89#idt_02).

"Performance optimizations in a program code for more efficient memory use which now results in 10x faster webpage scanning and at least 2x and faster scanning of executable files. avast! 2014 also uses smaller data files for virus signatures sent to customers in our streaming updates, so it will result in a smaller overall download."

The UI is horrible.  Every grey view looks like every other grey view.  It's like trying to find an alleyway in Venice.  I had to deal with a false positive.  Could I find the virus chest and then exclusions to create a rule?

Why not simply modify the UI from version 8?  Change for change's sake!   :(

In ZoneAlarm's interface, remove all rules for Avast.  Then, when you run your internet apps and browsers, ZoneAlarm should request permission for Avast components to access the internet.  You should allow them.

You shouldn't be running two firewalls at the same time as they will conflict.  If you use Avast Internet Security firewall, remove Private Firewall.

Folks - I have recommended nothing but Avast to my customers for the last several years. (Hopefully, a number of them have converted to paid subscriptions!) Suddenly, today, i'm getting calls from *all* of them because they can no longer open web pages. If i turn off the web shield protection in Avast!, web navigation returns to normal. I normally use Chrome, which seems not to have the same problem, but IE9 and 10 take upwards of four minutes to load any web site, and sometimes so long i've not been willing to wait! I believe i'm about to have an extremely busy day, with another busy one in the future when this problem is resolved! This is with 2014.9.0.2006. Any ETA on a fix for the problems this version seems to have introduced?

From what I've read, if "Avast Online Security" is disabled the problems no longer exists for some users.

Since updating to the latest Avast IS i can no longer access my laptop with my media
server (Mede8erX3D1000).
I see a lot of other people are having the same problem with various other media servers,
and it's all down to the Avast firewall.
I had to remove the Avast firewall while doing a custom install so my media server would work
again.
Do you think there will be a fix for this sometime soon.Was working fine before the update.

I just filed a ticket about the same issue. The Internet Security 2014's firewall seems to be blocking Windows SMB (Samba) file sharing. Turning the firewall of confirms this. The Windows 8 (and 7) own built-in firewall does not, so for now I'm using that one... I hope they can fix this; it's totally not ok for a program to cripple such a basic usage scenario (has this even been tested properly?).

Got to give them the benefit of the doubt and it is freeware. Had I paid I'd perhaps feel a little different about it.

I agree, the new interface makes us to work out more. I mean, some features have no direct route. e.g to reach the fileshield settings, we have to click settings>active protection>file shield. We could just have put the main features on the main window itself. The status window which can be customised doesn't let us to put those features too except those which we rarely use. But I love the new look though. Its cool in the eyes and does not put strain compared to Avast 8. And it feels lighter and faster.
--------------------------------

By the way this could be a minor issue and I don't know if reported but avast does not remember its choice (I have to tick those boxes everytime. Avast 8 was fine): Screen attached.

However, has anyone else noticed their internet explorer has slowed down considerably when using avast's online security plugin?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled a clean version and it still causes major slow down.

This wasnt a problem in the last version so it has to be something in the latest build.

Disabling Avast Add-Ons is the only solution I could find as well.  I already got that far and nailed it to Avast before I found this forum today.  I saw Avast do an upgrade to 2014 Friday or Saturday.  Today no usable IE8.  Bummer.  Unfortunately there are a couple of web interfaces I use (for business) that only work properly under IE, so just dumping it for Chrome or FF is not an option. 

I disabled every other add-one first.  Still broken.  Then I disabled Ad Blocker.  Still broken.  Finally disabled the Avast security add-ons.  BOOM!  It works as fast and crisp as ever. 

Note:  For a quick test you can right click the IE link in your start menu and select Browse with add-ons turned off.

I installed the new release on the previous one (8.0.1497 I think) just yesterday. After restarting my notebook, I could not access the internet any longer (I had to shut it down to enter the web). I use windows 7, firefox and also have the firewall Zone Alarm.
Is there some setting I should change? Many thanks for your help!!

In ZoneAlarm's interface, remove all rules for Avast.  Then, when you run your internet apps and browsers, ZoneAlarm should request permission for Avast components to access the internet.  You should allow them.


I looked at ZoneAlarm's interface: there were no refusals for Avast; just some "allow" and some "ask". Anyway I removed the rules by always selecting "ask"; I expected the permission request but this did not come. I also tried always selecting "allow", without results.
Might there be an incompatibility between ZoneAlarm and Avast 9?

another false positive and quarantained file blocking programs work. >:( (reported)
the popup about the "threat" has a link to add the file to the exclusions. this does NOT do anything at all.
had to hunt for the location of the quarantaine on this new ui - this sucks, totally unintuitive!
in the quarantained file list, left clicking on the file and "add to excluded files" doe NOT work.
another hunt for the exclusion list - sucks.
manually added the file path to the list. next program launch - false positive again, despite the exclusion!
checked the exclusion, and guess what? the previously added path was NOT there! >:(
this happened on two of my computers with the same program today. this non working and unintuitive interface is garbage.

Just received VPS update 131028-1 but still the wrong pop-up (about FB security) and no voice.

When will this minor problem be resolved by Avast? Surely, it shouldn`t be such a difficult job? The irony is that a week or so ago the correct pop-up and voice worked fine but then went pear-shaped.

Okay i love the newer version its fresh, easier to navigate and faster.

However, has anyone else noticed their internet explorer has slowed down considerably when using avast's online security plugin?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled a clean version and it still causes major slow down.

This wasnt a problem in the last version so it has to be something in the latest build.

thanks.

Disable the Online Security plugin until the next program update. (hopefully will fix it)

So much for quality control at Avast!!! So now we need to disable the Online Security plugin as well as disable the firewall which does not work properly. Perhaps we should disable Avast v9 completely for the time being until all the main issues are sorted?

I think there have been hundreds of posts confirming this behaviour. That's something what you'd usually call a well known, confirmed bug. Since you are clearly receiving the VPS updates, dunno what you need next. Wait for the cosmetic issue to be fixed. Meanwhile, perhaps you have some more entertaining things to do than staring at the screen waiting for VPS update popup and voice message.

Things wouldn`t be looked at so harshly if this Avast version was a BETA - but it isn`t - and has so many bugs in it it is sorely affected, as shown by the numerous postings here.
Fortunately, my only bug is with the pop-up and voice, else Avast is working just fine on my computer.

I don`t look at my screen waiting for VPS updates,  pop-ups with voice, etc. but find it interesting when they do arrive.

Avast is still the best antivirus programme in my opinion.

Attention                                Resolve All
Some shields are off:  Turn on

Where is the information stating which shields are off?
Only 3 shields are on, but I'm not sure where the others are (IM, P2P).
Clicking "Turn on" does nothing.
Clicking "Resolve All" does nothing.

Plus there's an exclamation mark on the icon in the system tray bringing attention to the issue that I can't fix.

I still trust Avast, but this UI isn't user friendly or intuitive at all and I got my first computer in the mid 1980's so learning and using new software is no big deal.
It's rather easy to end up with 4 or more open windows unlike pretty much any other program aside from the OS.
It takes time time and work to dig through all of the menus, windows, and options.
How about using tabs?

In any event, I'm grateful for the update and great software.
Some advice on the shields issue would be nice.

The number of real-time shields in avast! 2014 is reduced by merging some of them to another. The P2P Shield, IM Shield and Behavior Shield are now a part of the File System Shield, while the Network Shield with Script Shield are a part of the Web Shield.

I don't see option for network settings either (It was absent in Avast 8 I suppose, too). Avast is smart ;) Earlier most of us used to ignore those shields while installing but now, you just can't.

Assuming the tick box was already ticked when you saw it, it would be Avast! itself that determines what a trusted site is.  Option looks to be default from here, and what that tick in place would do is speed up browser loading time on a trusted site.

If you want all sites to be scanned, then untick the box.

My issue is not any one thing; I've had throttling from the new release through Firefox, eMule, PlanetSide 2 and even Battlefield 3; all worked fine before the upgrade.  We've also performed a line check with our broadband provider just now, and they say the exchange is working properly... normally our download speed is 6 of an 8Mb connection, but since the new release we're lucky to get 30Kb!

The only common denominator is Avast 2014.  I hope the issues are corrected soon.

After being a faithful user of Avast for about 10 years, this time I am very very very disappointed with the new version.

I have installed it on 10 different computers and have to roll back now to v8 because it is blocking the most common programs for no reason.
It also slows down all computers I tested it on.

I have never been so disappointed in Avast, and am starting to look elsewhere already.

I still think that a comprehensive user's guide/manual is a good idea. I'm guessing that there's one out there somewhere. If not, perhaps some generous fan could put one together.

For some inexplicable reason the page to download the User Guides doesn't seem to be
accessible anywhere on the Avast! website, if you try to follow the links starting
from the Home page. Even the "Downloads" page doesn't seem to have a link to the
documentation files anymore. I appreciate that the PDFs for 2014 may not be ready
yet, but I fail to see why the documentation for other versions and products has
been removed by not providing a link to the appropriate page anymore. The files and

So after installing those three component my avast in now able to create easy CD rescue in several minutes. So everybody who want to be able to create rescue cd you should first let your windows download the necessary components before being able to create bootable cd.

This might have made avast leaner but I don't see how it made it faster. On the contrary, it actually means more work for avast which otherwise would have stayed idle while we use P2P/IM service. Now, by default, it will do the scanning. Some of us likes flexibility at configuring things that matter more or opt out services we don't really need. A complete control over what we want or what it does. But guess, you cannot please everyone at the same time! ~

Avast 2014 has been an extremely disappointing update for me... the Web Shield will not allow me to connect to certain websites, forcing me to use Avast with the Web Shield permanently disabled. If this can't be resolved soon, I'll stop using Avast altogether.

I made a forum thread describing the problem here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=138363.0 (http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=138363.0). Please take a look.

Can anyone help me solve this problem? If there is currently no solution, can anyone confirm that the problem is known and being worked on?

I'm not sure if that thread is describing the same problem I have... in that thread, the original poster said YouTube worked fine, but streams were being blocked. For me, some normal sites like YouTube get their connection reset.
Even if it is the same problem, that thread doesn't do me any good because there isn't a solution for the problem described in that thread.

I have found the same thing, disappointment.  After spending 2 hours figuring out why we can't get into our online banking, and happy the Bank was patient enough to hang on the line with me, we found that the old Avast version works without any issues, the new one you can't get logged in. I have so far about 8 hours into figuring out why things won't work with it, and are moving on. I don't have the time I used to and am moving to a product that is more lights out.

If you use Google Chrome too, can you run the same test as described below? What are the results?

---------------------------------

Alright, I've found some interesting test results...

After running a test (namely chrome://net-internals/#tests) on an affected URL (http://www.youtube.com/) with and without the Web Shield on I got some curious results:

WITH WEB SHIELD ON

WITH WEB SHIELD OFF

With the Web Shield on, all connections fail except when IPv6 host resolving is disabled!
Avast devs, please fix this!

I don't have anything like that with Firefox; at best it sometimes can't load the page, because whatever changes are with Avast 9 disrupt my wireless connection.  Once I ask to reload the page, however, it works.

I think the biggest issue is there is no feature on Avast's website to download the old version of their anti-virus - you can get the most-recent version, but you're stuck if you can't rollback.

I'm a paying user for Avast IS(3 computers). This is the first time I experienced problems with avast IS.

On all 3 different laptops with W7 there were  conection problems for the browsers(IE10 and Google Chrome).
After right clicking the system tray icon and disable all shields , I could acces internet again with the browsers. Immidiatly after that I start up the shields again and everything is working like it should.
Hopefully the Avast team can explain why?

You would be advised to start your own new topic (and we will try to help), as your post and any attempt to help you will be buried in this massive topic.

So avast doesn't have a sandbox anymore?

No AutoSandbox. The normal context menu sandbox is still there.

AutoSandbox has been replaced with DeepScreen.

The new UI is ugly and much less usable. The incessant popups need to go away too.

At most, I've seen 2 in a day and that's been whenever there was a VPS update.
