I thought the idea of avast incorporating HIPS was shot down a long time ago.

Where is the HIPS component found?

Post by: cakwatu2@gmail.com on June 15, 2015, 10:53:31 PM
I'm interested to hear more about this HIPS feature, is it going to be similar to Comodo's default deny? Or is avast doing something completely different? I've used Comodo's HIPS before and it was really irritating with tons of alerts, hopefully avast will be more user friendly.

Where is the HIPS component found?

Settings - File system shield settings - Sensitivity

Getting this error in attach (Failed to connect to service.) while clicking OK under Software updater settings. W8.1 x64 clean install.
// Gone after resetting its database. I did not restart PC after installation just yet... odd. I believe NG was creating something in background when this happened.
/// Just got alert from software updater that I got some patches to apply. Perhaps it caused the error as it was scanning the PC for updates... Which is odd, I never started it.
//// Alert about Firefox was displayed while I was updating it manually (from Help - About Firefox). Shouldn't show it - could mess with browser when clicked/cleaned.

The Avast HIPS is a behaviour HIPS. The screenshot is with the default settings.

Thanks for the update. It looks like the HIPS feature is a revival of Behavior Shield.

Why are all these proactive features stuffed under individual shields or even under broad settings? It's so confusing. Why not create a dedicated proactive shield that has the Hardened mode controls under it, HIPS controls and other global features that are designed for proactive protection?

I don't se cramming of everything into already crowded settings and there you have the sheild list that is 3/4 empty...

Currently, HIPS settings are hidden underneath File System Shield -> Sensitivity submenu which is frankly a bit inconvenient place to have it...

Totally agree. All the extra protection is nice but if you can't find it, what good is it going to do anyone.

This version did everything except allow me to use my HP Envy Win8.1. I lost tray icons, Firefox would not open, avast GUI would not open.
Various other programs did not open or if they did they didn't work. After three reboots I was able to access my download folder so I could use the avast uninstaller. That finally worked so I could remove this version. I really look forward to beta testing unless it doesn't
work for me. Back to v2015.10.2.2218.

While I had this beta installed I tried to access the setup file so I could save it. I couldn't even do that.

Post by: Cast on June 16, 2015, 09:19:29 PM
Interesting that you have an HP Envy as well and also had issues with the program. I got a blue screen after I rebooted and then thats where I had most of my issues but mine was more like the program was slow to do much of anything so I uninstalled it and used the clear tool and reinstalled and strangely the second time around everything was working right, even the reboot went smoothly.

Though im not really impressed with cleanup(and btw has anyone else noticed that a lot of other av vendors have also had "windows clean programs"?) its still not very informative, sure now it shows how much data and issues but still not exactly what it has identified.

What does free for beta testers means?
I mean if you test Avast Pro, you will get Pro, if you test Internet Security, you will get IS free?
Is this a lottery system or every beta testers gets free & guess 1 licence for 1 system 1 year free?

You can test that version for the duration of the testing period.
After which you can either purchase a license for the paid version or revert to the free version.

  • Grimefighter is now redone and called Cleanup.
            - ...
            - free for beta testers

Only Cleanup is free for Beta testers, at least during Beta testing.
But what the concequenses are if you revert from the paid version to the free version, is not clear to me.
Can you still undo changes made during Beta testing for exemple ?

You can undo (some) changes by standard System Restore tool in Windows. There should be Avast Cleanup restore point made every time you run cleanup or registry optimization. By reverting back it restores registry changes and some system file related changes. Removed log files, temporary files etc. won't be restored.

It about time Avast has included HIPS in their beta version which I've been waiting for years since Comodo and Outpost Pro has HIPS, and I'm looking forward to the final release when it's ready.

I hope this beta will last till the end of July and then start the avast 2016 I just think test versions of avast becomes thy spend more time being tested and I think for every beta release more news spectacular as was the case with the hips more I think avast launched less than last year's versions and I have a suggestion why not create an alpha channel to the avast so we would have the normal channel the channel beta and alpha channel that would be only for testers who have suggestions ideas to the product and could test the news before even of them launched in beta channels srem that alpha channel would be only for people that test antivirus software every day or want to contribute with some comment suggestion etc

I have a suggestion why not create an alpha channel to the avast so we would have the normal channel the channel beta and alpha channel that would be only for testers who have suggestions ideas to the product and could test the news.

What do you think this version is leading up to?
avast added something to be tested before the v2016 beta is released.
Of course I'm just speculating. But still it's something to think about.

"Interesting" is the perfect term. Another is "befuddled". I should have noted that I tried a clean install too.

Hi Para-Noid :)

Reading your problem and Bobs here https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=172345.msg1223553#msg12235 make me think that there could be a problem with the updater/installer. Maybe like Bob, a repair of Avast solves it for you too.

I would agree that would be a possible option in settings.

Personally with Outpost Firewall Pro (with HIPS) and WinPatrol Pro, I have disabled the avast HIPS. Another reason for my choice of disabling it, is not knowing exactly what it is looking for or does, so that write up about what the settings are looking for/do will be welcomed.

Finally, now running v2015.10.3.2219 beta.
I feel the same as others unless there is more info about the HIPS I have it disabled.
It's the old "behavior shield" revisited. And it wasn't much good or didn't do much, if anything.
My firewall already has HIPS and I don't see the need for the duplication in efforts.

Could we get more documentation about the "new" HIPS?  ???

3. How does it get back to the normal release channel ? ? So far, this new version seems ok.

1. Final release was '2015.10.2.2218'.
2. That's R 3, Beta 1.
3. If you have no trouble, let it remain as it is. Otherwise you have to download and install '10.2.2218'.

I might do that when the next final release comes out. I will need to export my exclusions first or else I need to put them all back in. There should be an easier way to get back on the main release channel, maybe in an .ini file or a registry key.

There are "major" differences/added components/different code between the Beta and Version 2015.10.2.2218
I don't believe you can 'just alter an .ini file or change a Registry entry'

I am sure there are changes, but so far the Beta is running just fine. It would just be a bit of work to go back to V2218 ... you would think Avast would put an option in program UI to select either the Beta or Release Channels for updates. ...

I am sure there are changes, but so far the Beta is running just fine. It would just be a bit of work to go back to V2218 ... you would think Avast would put an option in program UI to select either the Beta or Release Channels for updates. ... Perhaps this idea should be sent on to the Avast Coding Group ? ? ?

You obviously are using the Free version, as the SafeZone Browser available for Safe Online banking(a major component) has not been/is not functional in the beta.
The beauty is you are free to do what you wish. :)

News about SafeZone is, that R3 Beta (and R3 release) will contain old SafeZone.
New SafeZone is not ready yet, and will be tested/released later.

Updated to this version a couple of days ago and despite that each time you start Internet Explorer exits the screen HIPS asking whether to accept the change log of internet explorer (resulting from the fact that as a proxy connection are under intranet with its configuration) I must say that the computer seems much more streamlined and responsive than before, congratulations to the staff of Avast

Hi,
thanks for positive feedback. The problem with IE + HIPS is a bug and will be fixed during beta testing.

Thanks for pointing this out, then expect the beta to date although the problem with internet explorer occurs only during the opening of the browser after that warning no longer appears

I downloaded the full free version as I like to keep an off-line version just in case and that downloaded at a pace I'm used to, very quick.

I can confirm that the HTTPS scanning works in XP, it did on the last 2219 build, but it was darn slow and I also got some page hiccups. I can confirm the https page loading isn't as slow as before.

Also the ability to disable HTTPS scanning in XP is now present in the web shield UI.

I did notice a /quiet command to run a KB, is this related to being able to scan HTTPS in XP (see attached image) ?

Or could I get some valid certs pushed?, or an exe to update the certs, my avast webroot cert also says 2018, I really cant uninstall and install avast, would be nice to just slip in valid certs in an update or make sure they get overwritten in coming program updates.

will report any issues observed. seems faster than 2218.

Yes just got mine, the 2221 build was automatically updated - so the default program settings got changed in the initial beta as mine was always set on Ask/Notify.

So after some more testing it's https scanning. Other browsers do work, so it's probably because Firefox dropped support for old/broken https algorithms/protocols like RC4, SSL3 etc in latest version and is much stricter. So it's probably a variant of this problem (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=172470.0).

I just did a clean install of the new RC version and ran into a problem. Thunderbird could not download my GMail emails. It had no problem with downloading Yahoo emails. It could even send emails via GMail but could not receive them. Thunderbird would try to connect to the server and would time out. So completely uninstalled the program (no Avast on the system) and the problem remained. After restoring my system from a previous backup, all is well. It appears that something was modified during the installation.

If this is an RC then it should be very close to the final release and NOT have bugs that the prior builds did not have. I have no use for the cleaner, I do not want the cleaner but every time I run a Smart Scan this is what I get:

@GTX66

Your screenshot shows no bug to me. I hope you still know, that this RC is a BETA. And within it there is 'Cleanup'.
Why didn't you go ahead to 'Resolve all'? At the end of the 'BETA', 'Cleanup' will be out of 'SmartScan'! So you need a licence then and have to pay for it.

1. Is English your primary Language?
2. If you read my post , I do not have The Cleaner Installed!
3. If this is not a Bug then tell me what it is? As posted the prior release which was NOT a RC did not have this.

1. There are some primary languages since I went to school.
2. I did and your screenshot shows, that you have 'Cleanup' installed (automatically, for you did no 'user defined' installation where you could untick 'Cleanup'!).
3. '10.3.' is a brand new devellopment ('In memory of Jan Koubek') and much better than '10.2.'!

If you need further informations, please ask the Devs.

If you see a check mark then you also need your vision tested.

Hi GTX66,

I tried it on my machine and wasn't able to reproduce. Can you please try to switch off the Cleanup in Settings->Tools?

Martin, check my post https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=172345.msg1230189#msg1230189 (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=172345.msg1230189#msg1230189), whilst I can't reproduce the error of gtx66 - I do have an anomaly.

Where the image attached in my post link above shows (from running a Smart Scan) that my PC performance has been optimized, now presumably that would mean that cleanup has run (?) yet there is no cleanup entry in the avastUI > Settings > Tools.

Hey, I am the only here who's shortcut icon to the SafeZone on desktop is low res and pixelated? :D Every time program updates itself or I do a repair - I've got this icon back :)
I reported this about nine months ago and they have never fixed it in the stable release either.

How can you report and expect to solve problems ??? Thought that's what Beta Testing is all about ???

Bob, I do not need you to tell me what Beta Testing is all about, I have been doing it for years with Windows OS's. FYI to anyone that cares, I removed AIS , used AvastClear in Safe mode which by the way does NOT remove everything. I then re installed clean this latest Beta, I will not call it an RC as it is not ready for prime time. My issue with "The Clear Feature" is now gone. IMHO Avast is turning into a bloated program which reminds me of the old Norton Programs. I can also do without the Chrome adverts. Have a nice day!

RC (Release Candidate) as you are probably aware is still a beta build, until it becomes a final release it is still a beta. Which is presumably why it has 2015 BETA in the UI.

I think it was you who stated that you don't have AIS installed despite reporting problems ???
Not a problem, I'm sure it will get solved through the efforts of other beta testers and Avast.
You also have a nice day. :)

I resolved it I guess you do not have a great understanding of The English Language Bob. An RC is a Release Candidate unlike an Alpha or Beta it's next step is The Final Release. If people want to refer to an RC as a Beta then that is up to them. In the scheme of things one a Beta reaches the RC level it is referred to as such.

Nothing wrong with my comprehension even if I don't make that statement. David is correct in what he posted. It's still a Beta and bound to still have quirks.
Since you no longer have it installed, you should be happy they no longer effect you. :)
Continue to have a nice day GTX66. :)
