Given the adverse user reaction of the silent (background) installation of the SafeZone Browser. I would be very wary about taking that step, you only have to browse the forums to see the anger about this.

We have also seen the reaction forums in the past, to forced program updates from old avast versions - even when updates were set to Manual Update.

What is the urgency/reason to even contemplate silent program updates.

Personally I hate forced program updates in any program, it is my system and I would like to control what happens on it and when.

With the launch of Safezone browser, I came really close to removing Avast from every single PC, and Android Phones, but so far trying to stick it out a little longer, still have to finish removing SafeZone browser on Windows 10 Desktop, left over folders and such.    Not sure if keeping it on any other of the machines that got it or not. 

So will this silent updating be for only Definitions in the future or Program updates or both?

In all seriousness though, as I asked earlier:
What is the urgency/reason/benefit to even contemplate silent program updates ?

For most people they won't like that as we have seen in the past. But my major concern is these updates invariably occur shortly after boot (seen instup.exe in task manager lots and it is a bit of a hog) for those that shutdown systems at night. There really has to be a reasonable delay after boot to let the system settle down.

Also if these silent updates come in and as it is now program updates require a reboot, how will this requirement be handled or will there not be a reboot requirement ?

About reboot. Good point, update should be planned not immediately after reboot. To apply all the changes update requires reboot and there will be reboot request after certaion amount of time without reboot which is remotely configurable.

This really is a bad idea:

First, as you should have seen from the troubles with Safezone, many, many people do not like silent updates. This is even more true for something central to the security of their computer than it was for that browser.

Secondly, come the day that there is a bug in the package that wasn't found in testing YOU will get the blame for breaking the user's computer. There is a world of difference between on the one hand me as a user deciding to try the new release, and it failing , and on the other me turning on my PC and finding that YOU put on software that doesn't work.

Thirdly, are you really sure that silent updates are lawful in all jurisdictions in which Avast is used? To be clear, you cannot over-ride national law by writing something into the EULA. I think that it is the law in the user's country that applies, not where you are based.

You may say that you do silent updates already with emergency updates. I think that the context is different. I see a significant difference between patching a system that has a fault and putting on a major update.

The one saving grace in your proposal is that there will be an opt-out - and I will opt-out if I continue to use Avast, which is not a given. If you insist on staying with the idea of silent updates then my advice is to make the process an opt-in and see what happens.
Title: Re: NEW: RC release 11.2.2257 is out
Post by: Eddy on March 26, 2016, 06:00:48 PM
First, the updates are (almost) never like the install of a new component like it was with the SafeZone Browser.
They are more about improvements of detection/blocking malicious things as well as about fixing issues.
Kinda like the streaming updates and vps updates as they are now.

Secondly, 100% certainty that something will work on all systems doesn't exist even though a lot of people are participating in the beta testing.
It simply is not possible to test with all hardware/software/settings options.
There are 100.000.000.000's of different possibilities.

Thirdly, yes it is legal in all countries to my knowledge.
I never heard/read anything otherwise in the many years it exists.
I bet if it wasn't it would have been all over in the news already.

Not good.... update to 2257 or update to SafeZone (one or another) changed my previous settings of Ask if there is a new Update to Automatically Update. Had I not read here about this, I would not have checked until after the first "blind" update and would have been again ticked off that Avast! had seen fit to ignore my preferences and override with their choices. As other have said.... this is my machine. Let me do the deciding... don't you decide for me. If you want, tell me what you want, and ask me if I want that, but do NOT do it yourself without telling me.

Hi Bob,

yes we will respect your choice. For new installations and existing installations with the default value we will set new default - Automatic updates. If you don't like automatic updates you can turn them off. This change is aimed at non-technical users who don't want to bother with updating.

@ hectic-mmv,
Update as often as you need too but, give me the right to decide when that update will happen.
Notify me of a needed update. Since this is my computer and I know my workflow,
I should be the one who decides when that update will happen.

Hi Bob,

yes we will respect your choice. For new installations and existing installations with the default value we will set new default - Automatic updates. If you don't like automatic updates you can turn them off. This change is aimed at non-technical users who don't want to bother with updating.

It shouldn't be a case of turning off Automatic Updates, we still like to be notified 'Ask when an update is available', but take no action.

That said we have seen this setting overridden, usually on a release of a beta (when you are on the beta stream). We have also seen instances on the forums where program updates have occurred even when updates are set to Manual.

User set options on the Program Update shouldn't be overridden.

Previously we have had Programs set to Notify

Thank you Martin,
I agree that auto updates are the safest for those that never pay attention. I also like the choices made available
for those of us that want it our way. :)
Hope the following video makes this easy for everyone:

I'm not a beta tester but I'm very keen to ensure that I get to manually install (over the top) the next stable release. This is because I want to ensure (using the custom install) that NG isn't installed, my Win 10 system probably meets the minimum requirements but I don't think it's up to it. My program update setting is never (just changed from 'let me know'), does this mean that the automatic update won't be installed or does the 'preserve all settings' commitment only apply to all other settings after the automatic update has taken place?
