I was thinking that, but it hasn't impeded installing any other avast components (including the browser add-ons) in the past. So perhaps we need in UI help for this option.

But then again some of us are still have problems getting the browser add-ons installed in the first place.

from Macrium:

What's New 6.3.1734 - 21st February 2017
•In-place upgrade to Reflect v7
 This release accepts Macrium Reflect v7 keys and will upgrade to v7 by Taking 'Other Tasks' > 'Check for updates'.
•Avast AV software problem
 A recent update to Avast AV software has prevented Macrium Reflect scheduled tasks from running. This release includes an automatic workaround to run tasks using the Windows SYSTEM account.
Note: Scheduled backups will not be visible in the Windows notification area when running as SYSTEM.
•New registry entry to disable tray icon status messages and tool tips
 Customers running certain full screen games have noticed that the focus is lost when sheduled backups start. Set the following registry entry to disable tray icon messages :
Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macrium\Reflect\Settings
Name: DisableTrayNotifications
Type: DWORD
Value: 1

I have installed the new version of avast and I already have the add-on in 64bit firefox.
When I close and reopen firefox, the settings of the add-in are not saved and I have to reconfigure them, instead, in chrome this does not happen.

Hello folks,
I already talked with one of QA, but wish to discuss with you, users my problem which is not solve from the stable builds of versions 17.
First of all, I have no another antiviruses, but using Adguard, ad blocker.
Does anyone using Adguard with Avast 17?
I cannot.
When I installing Avast, everything going fine.
But, after installation, Avast reporting that protection is in passive mode.
Because I have some other  protection.
When I disable passive mode, protection is turned on, Windows defender is turned off and everything working fine.
Only until first reboot.
Then, boom.
System crashed, and recovery apeered.
I cannot provide any log, because I have no way to boot up my system, only to reimage to clean state.
IF I dont turn off passive mode, I could restart, but protection is inactive.
I suspect that its some conflict with Adguard, because I have no other software.
I cannot live without adguard, really.
:)

I would suggest you start your own new topic in the regular Avast Free Antivirus / Pro Antivirus / Internet Security/ Premier forum - not the beta sub forum as the beta has ended - avast has released this to the regular update stream.

This problem will be actual in the next beta too, because its actual from the first official release. Just thought that devs reading beta more often.

There is also method in my apparent madness, this topic is going to grow and probably fast as the other release version topics did. Your post soon gets lost (dropping of the chronological order in an old topic), having your own topic keeps all of your information in the same topic.

I too have a license for Cleanup Premium, and while it will scan, it will not resolve found issues.  I do have an outstanding ticket on this.  Any ideas here?

Please forgive my cynicism, but does the lack of rapid growth suggest that this Beta isn't too bad?
I've held off updating from 2276 due to the problems that others have encountered with newer versions, some of which seem to be Beta at best.

1. already mentioned in other topic, possibly next week.

2. I rather doubt there will be any major new features, these would take longer to introduce. There may well be improved functions/features that weren't ready for the last regular release.

3. If you are bored I suggest you go out for a run, it is great for working up a sweat and plenty of thinking time ;)

Please, nothing new about this known issue :

- Cleanup sometimes doesn't finish optimizing registry

For me this problem is repetitive and I must stop cleanup at step 2 not yet  finished ...

Thanks

This Beta is over. We are waiting for a new one.

Whilst this beta is over, the current regular release is the same version 17.2.2288 and the same build number 17.2.3419.0 as the old beta.

So there is a very high likelihood that the same problem still exists.

A manual program update reports I have the latest version.

Can't update virus definitions or the program (it says: "unknown error"). I downloaded v.2288 offline and clean installed it after I used the uninstall tool to remove v.2286 that didn't update, either. The same problem. I also downloaded the full virus definitions file and installed it.
