Great, I always wondered why it was "hidden" in AOS before.

Wanted to post this as well. Avast should make the "Close and launch your Avast" button bigger or more visible. Of course the intention is to make people read what is said but there should be one bigger button for closing this message.

That is of course my opinion. Can Avast team share example of Behavior Shield's new detection dialog?

Hi everyone,

new beta version 17.6.2307 is released.

Small typo :)

Otherwise new version is running OK so far.

Thanks for the update.

In the Subscription page there is an entry saying "Avast Free Antivirus" in fact it is Avast Cleanup Beta, see attached image.

Anyone able to see what the Threat Alerts look like?  on my Test System Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, only displays after I click on eicar.com download link, page cannot be displayed lol, and no alert from Avast 17.6.2308 at all

That machine is way underpowered, very sluggish lol, maybe that is why it's not working properly,  try not to beta test on my Windows 10 Pro x64bit 8 core system

Well on this XP system I don't see Avast Cleanup Premium in add remove programs.

I downloaded the full off-line setup file and installed over the top of 71.6.2307, not an update from the UI. I did a custom install.  Given this was meant to be a stand alone installation of Avast Cleanup Premium I didn't check the Performance > Cleanup option.

Unless this would also stop the stand alone installation, I don't know, but it is likely since I see no entry for it in add remove programs.

For me, it was installed when I decided to run it in order to create the video (https://youtu.be/1ZSPCh-e644)
That's why it now shows up in Programs and Features. :)

I hadn't tried to run it from the UI - as I mentioned - Given this was meant to be a stand alone installation of Avast Cleanup Premium I didn't check the Performance > Cleanup option. So no default installation.

Yeah doesn't work for some reason on that Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32bit system,  just dispalys page cannot be displayed, as well as for eicar.com download,  my 8 core system working fine I think, but I don't run betas on that machine most of the time, though I am planning System clean install when Fall Creators update comes out, so I guess I could swap test machines if i wanted to


Specs of that system is

Acer Revo R 1600
Single Core Atom 1.6ghz
2gb of ram
160gb 5400 rpm hard drive (hard drive screwed into motherboard on this model, hardware to upgrade than regular systems)

Normally on my 8 Core system 90 percent of the time

Quad Core once in a while

Same with Internet Explorer 11 on that particular machine, i'll work on getting it setup on the 8 Core Desktop system later today or early tomorrow, as hard to test on that little WIndows 7 System


I think it's just that little nettop PC just isn't powerful enough to do the alerts or such

Post by: DavidR on August 19, 2017, 08:01:41 PM
On firefox, no problem on the web shield alert, other than it is still centre screen and massive, even at its smallest size, see details obviously makes it even larger.

A point of note that the avast tray icon, context menu 'Show last popup message' doesn't work.
Title: Re: New Beta version 17.6.2308
Post by: Patrick2 on August 19, 2017, 08:09:25 PM
Yeah the alerts for sure on 17.6 versions very massive even at smallest size, old alerts the little Atom PC had no trouble showing those, but these newer ones it struggles to even show if it shows them at all, most of the time just says Page cannot be displayed lol

An other point of note, there was no number over the tray icon (which most didn't like), but there was also no change to the Notification Bell (on the main UI screen) either.  I thought that this was where it was only going to be ?

Hi guys :)

I have just performed a scan with Cleanup Premium, and I have to say the result does look acceptable ( no weird things ).
Maybe Cleanup has become a more "mature" product.
But I will keep it for just the scan now.

Hi,

this seems like a problem with Cleanup tray message. Are you able to induce it repeatedly or was it just one occurrence?
Also we would really appreciated if you could collect the log files from c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Tuneup\log\ and upload it somewhere (as a zip archive or some other package).

Sorry for the inconveniences and thank you for your help!

You can either upload it on some public file sharing web service or you can use our FTP server: \\ftp.avast.com\ftp\incoming\ (connect as anonymous user).

Thanks!
