Hi eveyone,

I'm glad to announce that new beta version is ready - 20.10.2438 (build 20.10.5774).

What's new
Support for beta versions of browsers (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Avast Secure Browser, AVG Secure Browser) in Password protection
Improved text used on password protected settings dialogue

What was fixed
Fixed crash in service after installation with expired free subscription
Fixed "Next century" option on restart dialogue - now is correctly accepted
UI now opens on scan results correctly when the UI is minimized during scan

Known issues
Step "Advanced threats" in Smart Scan does not fix problems in paid AV versions
Creation of rescue disk fails on Windows 7 and 8

Thanks Jan, testing it asap...
• The beta is running smooth here - no noticeable issues (so far)
• Side note, some additional data has been sent via AvBugReport

PS: Sorry, can't test the "Next century fix", but I'll ask my descendants to check it... ;D 8)

In the password leak alert when you select Show Password,
I get the following error message,
(https://d1ka0itfguscri.cloudfront.net/Lh/2020/11/13/15/43/cYXIo5M7xo/preview.jpg)
I'm obviously online or I wouldn't be posting this. Thanks

I have the same result as you Bob, I don't interact with that component often so didn't notice the Bug.
