After updating of Avast I can't run Internet Explorer.  :( Others browsers (Chrome, Firefox) are OK. I have Windows 7 and Avast 18.2.2328.

1. IE on Win 7 cannot be started. This is serious problem, fix should be priority.

2. Overseer.exe was added to 2 places: C:\Program Files\Common Files\AVAST Software\Overseer\Overseer.exe, and also to C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\setup\Overseer.exe. Taks in task manager leads to setup folder.

3. Uninstaller still not able remove Overseer from "common files" (Removed by hand before installing 18.2).

4. Scan time still tell me "few sec".

Now you can see what can happen if stable version is relaeased day after beta version :)

Yes, the forced updates have been disabled for more than an hour so the version can only be downloaded by new installs only until this is fixed.

Got notification to update about  an hour ago ...now IE 11 wont work :( I discovered by chance I had to turn the behaviour shield off . So it appears notifications to updates are still being sent out !

Hence why I have joined the forum as I was unable to operate my website and  advice forum with 12,000 members until I discovered the cause by chance  Not happy !!!!

Still broken today.

It's good to know that turning of the behavior shield enables IE 11 (used for testing web sites). I wonder what else is broken. I've not gone through an extensive examination of my applications.

ETA on the fix?

This and the last version also break the new Google Chat application. In particular, I cannot enable video chat when the behavior shield is running. Disabling the behavior shield during the duration of the chat allows video to be operational.

Since Google chat is being looked at as a skype replacement for work, it's important to me that this issue is resolved.

I've also had Windows Explorer crash on me twice since this update was installed.

Whilst it is good that the quick scan is back, it is far from Quick. It was sat at 0% for some time and after that progress was pretty slow.  Absolutely no comparison to the original Quick Scan, that was really 'Quick.'

Same Problem. The automatic update does not work and no notification informs you that there is a new update.

If you do not follow the forum or do not open the program you will never notice that there is an update to download. And as a result, the program will remain obsolete with possible security problems

Not really related to Avast though is it, you messed up your own system with a botched install of Norton over Avast ::) you would be better sticking to your original topic and providing some logs for one of the specialists to look over and see if they can fix your mess.

But didn't you say in your other topic you installed Norton first then removed Avast, Norton has obviously corrupted your Avast installation preventing complete removal and that's why you now have issues trying to re-install Avast, then you removed Norton and installed Avira and probably further messed up the system ::)

imo you are probably better off removing all third party AV's...upgrade the system to the latest Win 10 and use the built in Defender which will be simpler for you to maintain and hopefully you cant mess that up.

Missing text has been added back when right-clicking the Recycle Bin, not so on this PC.

So, I ran Back up settings, clean install (inc. avastclear.exe in safe mode), Restore settings.

Still have the issue with Missing text has been added back when right-clicking the Recycle Bin.

Also, all exclusions now lost, Backup/Restore Settings does not restore my exclusions.

Ever since version 17.6.2310 I have had issues with my avast anti-virus. Some small, some irritating and some really, really disappointing as to force me uninstall it. I was running the previous version to the current latest version and nothing of the UI would start up at all. No matter where I tried to open the UI from it would not launch at all. This went on for two weeks and then I just said enough.

I even had to uninstall in safe mode. I will install the latest version and see if that is satisfactory otherwise I will not be running avast any longer.

My perceptions are that my two Windows 7 (64bit) systems running on PCs dating back to 2006 and 2004 seem to run more quickly with Avast free 18 than with Avast free 17.9 and previous. Someone please tell me that this is not wishful thinking on my part.

I read everywhere in the forum that the Behavior Shield issue has been taken care of and I started seeing this issue for the first time on my machine (Windows 10) since last night when I updated my Avast to Version 18.2.2328 (build 17.5.3559.0).

Could someone please confirm if this known issue has been really fixed by Avast? I did a repair of Avast as well as mentioned in some of the posts in the forum and it didn't help either.

This version causing DHCP nack error in windows event manager/router. Also my DHCP client list in router (TP-LINK WDR 4300 - latest firmware) is empty. Just only after PC start. DHCP server says "DHCPS:lease host name not found". After hour my pc trying asking for new ip, that cause  nack error (ip address not allowed), after that is ack (ip address allowed) and now my PC appear in DHCP list. From now is all ack every hour until i restart my pc.
My lease time i set to 2 hours, PC asking for new ip every hour and if is DHCP list empty, DHCP cannot allow this ip for my device again, that cause heavy lag if i play any online game.

I tried uninstall Avast which solved this problem, when i installed Avast again, problem was back. Disabling all shields has no effect on this.

Please fix it.

Update installed smoothly via internal updater on all three win 10 machines here, though I notice scans are still only showing "a few seconds" under time taken in the scan history.

Have also noticed Chrome crashing randomly on two machines since the update (third hasn't really been used), but I'm not sure if  that is related at all to avast or is down to some other cause (I can't think what though).

HI,

I have JUST noticed that after Avast upgraded, and then when I proceeded to reboot the sistem, the system loads but whenever it should be loading the homescreen the pc shuts down. I've tried twice (second time it displayed the "initiate as safe mode" screen but didn't used it), it does the same, Windows 7 loads but then shuts down. What can I do? I would be able to delete the latest upgrade or should I try to load the latest system restore??

The hangouts chat application 18.2.252 recently released by Google for Windows. On a video conference call it attempts to bring up Google Meeting in the default browser window (for me, that's Chrome). This will break with an unspecified error unless the behavior shield is turned off.

Problem was with IE 64bit on Win7 64 bit, and it was fixed by VPS. So please update your virus definitions, if not updated yet automatically and problem should be gone

I just tried launching both 64 and 32 bit IE from within Bluefish (an HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP editor) and after a long pause both worked.

The second time that the programs were launched, the response was much faster. I won't be able to check Hangouts Chat for Windows until sometime Friday.

I'd like to report that the version causes BSOD in fltmgr.sys on Windows XP Pro x64(I keep a retro rig to run games like SimCity Societies and The Movies). The previous version did not do this.
Hi, only 32-bit XP is supported.

I have the last version of avast free. I´ve noticed that in at least three times behavior shield turns off by itself. Luckily the avast tray icon informs of this and I turn it on. Is someone experiencing the same thing?.
Thanks.

it's been running on my XPx64 computer for the past 11 years, you can't just end support like that without a f###ing warning, laziness is not a virtue so get off your asses and fix it BECAUSE YOUR DAMAGING PEOPLES COMPUTERS!!!

it should have at least been made so that the update won't install on WinXPx64 computers,  because this is grossly negligent and harmful as is.

So after the last update i cant launch World of Warcraft at all. I tried adding it to exclusions list and disabling gaming mode(suggested by BlizzardCS) and even completely disabling all behaviour shields but nothing. The only thing that worked was completely uninistalling avast which obviously fixed the problem. So is there anything i can do to fix or should i just uninstall avast after all those years of using it ?

Edit: After a while avast asked for a restart which I did. Then after rebooting I saw 2 new feautres added called Anti Track Premium and Drivers Updater. I dont know if there was a new version but after that i tried to launch WoW and it launched smoothly with no problems.

Edit2: I closed the game and then tried to reopen it and now it wont open again...

I am sorry that I didnt find that particular forum. It seems like I am not the only one having the same problem. I ve already tried what's being mentionted on that forum including repairing,clean installing avast,disabling all behiavour shields,adding wow64.exe and 32 bit exe to exclusions as well as adding the whole wow file to file exclusions and in general exclusions. The only thing that worked so far is completely uninstalling avast and indeed as being told by you and other users wow only launches once after i reboot my computer if i have avast installed. Any other attempts of launching without rebooting first have failed. Thank you for your time. I guess i ll just have to uninstall Avast for now.

Sorry we could not resolve your issue for now.  This is a known bug and avast devs are working on it.  Check back frequently for updates and/or subscribe to the topic I linked you to. 

If you've uninstalled avast and installed a new a/v be sure to use these uninstallers for a clean uninstall/install:  https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/11/#artTitle (https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/11/#artTitle)

What do you mean "doesn't function". It makes policy changes.
Not having blocked anything doesn't mean it's not enforcing the changes it's made.

It simply means that nothing has attempted to bypass those changes.

not functioning means I tick the checkbox to block something but when I test it, it doesn't block

for example, I tick "block powershell" and execute powershell.exe, it should be blocked but powershell runs

without avast, powershell is blocked => OSA works properly

with different AVs such as kaspersky, panda, gdata, eset, comodo, OSA works perfectly without any problem

I made a lot of exclusions in global exclusion, file shield, behavior shield, hardened mode, performed countless repairs, clean installations, disabling hardware virtualization, it simply can't make it work

I have been using version 17.8, 17.9 and 18.2, and use OSA from version 1.0 to 1.4 beta test 40, none of them works

I have been using logs and diagnosing using kernel investigation but I couldn't find a solution

avast is definitely the culprit because there is another user in malwaretips reported avast made OSA not functioning

the only thing that make avast work with OSA is to wait for several hours and OSA suddenly works. As soon as I reboot, OSA stops working. I have to wait another few hours

I had it running and when I rebooted the system it blocked some items.
So it definitely works even if Avast is installed.
In my case, what it blocked wasn't something that should have been blocked.
Since there isn't any way to stop this blocking before it happens, I've removed this
program.

I'm using windows 8.1 and this might be the reason why they are not compatible. I asked the developer and he could not reproduce the problem on windows 10 and 7

but the issue definitely exists

The new beta version 1.4 has the ability to whitelist and exclude program so it will be much better
it can patch all the weaknesses of avast I found
Avast is so vulnerable to malwares spreading through windows script host, powershell and java runtime

I've only used Avast since 2003 and have never run into one of those infections.
Hence, can't see any use for using the software you're apparently having a problem with.
I didn't use that software for very long. :)

you don't get infection because you have a safe browsing behavior.
there are many average users out there who have reckless browsing behavior and because they are inexperienced
I have seen many malware removal threats that users have avast installed but still get infection. I found comment problems that most of them come from scripts and PUPs
I have done many testing between different AVs and I found avast's deadly weaknesses but because we don't get those types of malware everyday, we don't get infected

for some people who have java runtime installed, we simply throw some new, undetected by avast's signatures, .jar malwares, 90% of the time, avast will fail
because 80-90% of users don't have java installed, they are okay with it

I have been using avast for many years and for many PCs with some tweaked and hardened windows, no one has got any infection so far

I just want to report some weaknesses that avast should improve to better protect users

Well I have had this XP Pro SP3 system for over 8 years and with avast free for all of that time and never experienced an issue with the avast tray icon not being displayed. Or had the issue of the AvastUI failing to start, lucky I guess or the fact that it doesn't effect everyone.

Intermittent issues aren't going to be easy to find and resolve.

The AvastClear uninstall worked well.  The 'Run' button was barely visible in the 640x480 Safe mode display, but I could click it.
The reboot after uninstall took a few minutes, hanging on a black screen until the login screen loaded.
After login Windows displayed the expected " The system has recoverd from a seriuos error .." popup, prompting to Send the Error report.

Hello, there's missing Rescue Disk component, why?

If found it manually at program files (AvastPE2.exe) but can't start because of HTMLayout.dll and/or CommonUI.dll missing problems.

Thank you for your help!

There's usually more than one way to reach most things in Avast. I posted one way,
Avast posted another way:

Both work. :) Enjoy and stay safe.

I got rid of WOT based on trust and after a while I also got rid of AOS as I didn't feel it brought much to the party.  My browsing habits and general browsing security habits really negated my need.

Did a clean install of new version of AIS

Outlook 2016 will still not accept add-ins for Spam and the icons are not showing in ribbon.

Thought this new version took care of this add-ins issue.

For other security software, internet security includes webcam security!
This is not the case for you!
But that would be a fundamental defense!

Hi guys i found a bug in avast network scan. I was running the network scan so i can name all my devices so that they do not get confusing and i can see which device is what. But upon clicking on the device and selecting edit to choose what the device corresponds to within the menu list, to my supprise the menu is broken to the point where the entire list is white and only hightlights a device when scrolling down. Please look at the image thank you.

My free license is expired, and cannot renew my contract. 

When I click the "continue the subscription", it shows the product select wizard. And then it says "thanks for activate the product" and the Internet security promotion screen. If I close the window, the product still stay the unprotected and expired status. If I choose to update button, I have to pay for the upgrade product  :'(

I have reinstall the product, the same happened.

Any one who encountered the same and solved this problem?

I once updated to the latest version. Some bug or application lag forced me back to Avast 2015. And I never had to worry about anything. Its fast, hassle free and without any bugs. I only use File Shield and Web Shield  (the two most important features for safe browsing) and aboslutely nothing else. Never caught a virus once. Thanks avast.

But, just out of curiosity, am I missing anything usefull since I didn't update to the latest version? Please note, I only care about File Shield and Web Shield (and few things like boot scan, removable media scan, and most useful of the feature; the statistics window for real time data)

Not finding that on this desktop XP Pro SP3 system.

How are you entering Standby ?
I tend to use a ZZ key on my keyboard to have the system go to sleep, which works just fine. I have just tested it using the Start button > Turn Off Computer option and then the Stand By button and that too works just fine.

I run Outlook 2010 on Windows 10 and have never had any problems. The Avast Outlook plugin has never crashed for me either.

Have you tried an Outlook repair?
Have you tried removing the plugin manually from Outlook, removing the Mail Shield and then re-installing Mail Shield again?

Yes, I tried it tens of times: on Safe mode I got in Outlook settings, turned off Avast plugin then everything works fine, Outlook 2010 starts correctly. But then I don't have any protection against harmful e-mails.

Outlook crash issue is a common one since end of December,, and as far as I see it's not resolved yet: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=212301.0

I still haven't tried uninstalling & reinstalling Avast, maybe it solves the problem. But why I have to go in so much trouble & hassle to get rid of a bug for a software that I paid for since many years and that it updates its engine automatically/manually but still has the same problem.

zero message
it simply doesn't work for no reason
kernel investigation can't detect the problem
the developer can't reproduce the issue so he can't fix
this problem may be specific for some users

As far I'm concerned , finding it on my xp pro sp3 but I think it's rather due to a "posready" windows update .
The "stand by" icon is here like in your b7995.png but I'm stuck on the message: standby preparation
forced to turn off the computer by the "reset" button.

I don't have the "posready" hack on my system, so if it is related, I wouldn't be suffering it.

Hi
I had the annual subscription which I paid back in December.
Yesterday I just updated the app, and many of the options are stacked, and ads are back!

Looks like I have to pay another 5 euros to unlock the functions I already had.

Please check

Please check

What Avast product are you talking about (I suspect Avast Mobile App product/s) as 5 euros wouldn't cover the
Avast Pro Antivirus / Internet Security/ Premier product/s this topic is about ?

If Avast Mobile App, then try posting in the related sub-forum https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=66.0 (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=66.0).

entering standby by all types possible ...like on your screenshot or by using FN +F4 (IBM machine) ...

so far I've resolved it by re-installing Avast ...hope te bug won't appear again :-)
