Title: *** INTRODUCING: New Pre-Release version of Avast 6.0.1027 ***
Post by: Vlk on March 12, 2011, 02:59:17 PM
Now replaced by version 6.0.1035: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74149



Hi everyone,

we will soon be releasing a new program update of avast. And as usual, we're making it available for public testing a few days before the official release. Edit: now updated to build 6.0.1027.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the original v6.0.1000 build.

Here's the list of the most important changes:
- solved an incompatibility with ZoneAlarm (WinXP)
- improved installation of the WebRep plugins (especially Firefox)
- solved a crash condition in the avast sandbox
- setup programs now smaller by ~20%
- Community features and the Welcome screen can now be turned on/off directly from program settings
- solved an incompatibility with Outpost firewall
- solved a bug related to the AutoSandbox offer (WinXP)
- gadget can now be removed by simply closing it
- new setup icons

And new in v6.0.1027:
- attempt to fix new compatibility problems with GameGuard and sXe _rootkits_
- SafeZone improvements
- localization updates (including WebRep)
- improved sandbox logging
- SafeZone is now a standalone setup package (can be installed/uninstalled separately)


Download links:
snip

You can either install from scratch, or over an existing installation of avast (any version). Users of the previous pre-release build (6.0.1021) can also use the built-in program updater.

Thanks
Vlk

WebRep does not work with Firefox 4.0 RC1 and Firefox 3.6.15 (plugins are installed), in version 6.0.1000 it works. In IE 8 WebRep works well.
I work with Win7 64 bit and AVAST Internet Security.

I was just going to try updating to version 6 (from 5.0.677) today when I read about this beta testing starting.  After reading about the intended changes... and what my machine has installed... I think I'll wait until this one is released before I update.

Thanks to Alwil team for always trying to improve your product.  :)

I can confirm the WebRep bug for Firefox 3.6.15. Uninstalling and installing it again from the Avast! GUI doesn't solve it.

Confirmed no auto-sandbox on XP Pro SP3

Edit: Just updated my win7 netbook from 6.0.1000 to 6.0.1027, installation over the top of existing installation and the Auto-Sandbox function is present, so this looks like it is only an issue in the update on XP.

Given that they previously had a lack of activity by the auto-sandbox in XP until 6.0.1021, which seemed to be working OK. So it would be interesting to know if this is removed by accident or by design ?

as i had a computer infected with w32.virut(vitro) and the latest avast 5 unable to repair any file. which is disappointing considering the virus massively infect almost all the exe

installed symantec, and it repair almost all the file (some are failed due the virut bug)

same thing happen when my other computer got infected with sality, avast unable to clean/repair the file, but the other antivirus repair the file wonderful

This is a pre-release build and not a regular release. So if you didn't have the previous pre-release version 6.0.1021 ?
Then the UI program update doesn't work as it 'is up to date' for the regular release version 6.0.1000. You would have to follow the instructions at the start of this topic to download the full installation package.

Since you are reluctant to create a signature for your profile we don't know what avast version you have installed.

I upgraded Pro from 1021 on W7x64SP1 using the download instead of the GUI and everything seems to be there.  Only anomaly so far is that WebRep only shows a score in FF, not IE, but that may be a link problem.  Will go try Vista and Free now and see wazzup there.
UPDATE: Did an uninstall and reinstall of the IE plugin and that is working now also.  Currently no issues.  :)

Installed Free 1027 as an upgrade to 1021 using the GUI under VistaHPSP2x32.  Everything is present; only thing that appears to not be working is WebRep for IE, where the bar chart is visible but can't be accessed.  For FF, no ratings but otherwise functional.  And for those with Private Firewall issues, PF is still working perfectly with Vista, including the GUI.

Installed Free 1027 as an upgrade to 1021 using the GUI, with no WebRep or Gadget. Everything here working great.

Question though: Since I chose to manually install the pre release 1021 over the official release 1000, and subsequently updated to pre release 1027 over 1021, am I now forever on the "pre release" versions of avast!? Or once a new "stable/official" release is available, will my 1027 GUI notify me to upgrade to that version?

In other words, will I eventually be back on the stable/official release without having to do a full uninstall/reinstall?  

Keep up the great work avast! team!

Once released, you come back to official releases automatically when you update the program.

Version 6.0.1027 causes TeraCopy to crash. It worked just fine in the previous beta (1021). Even tried a clean install, no luck. Went back to 6.0.1000 and everything works fine again. I'm using the free version.
I think it's related to the sandbox issue, 'cause (for some reason) avast thinks TeraCopy is "suspicious" (which it clearly is not) and wants to SandBox it.
Hope this can be sorted out soon enough.

Forgot to mention: Win 7 SP1 x64. Phenom II X4 945, 4GB RAM.

They will no doubt support other browsers in time, but they will do it in some sort of priority. That is likely to be based on the popularity, user base of the browser; Chrome is likely to be next in line but that too will take a little time.

I don't know if and when Chrome is supported other chrome based browsers will be able to use it.

I have never had a problem with the built in updater until now and I'm not sure if it's really a problem or just a GUI glitch. The auto-sandbox listing is also missing for me in Additional Protection but the option to enable it is still present in the File System Shield settings. Therefore I'm assuming that it's still active but just not showing in the GUI under Additional Protection. In my opinion, it really doesn't need to show there since there's nothing you could ever do with it from that location. You've always had to go into the settings for the File Shield anyway.

The Web Rep listing is still present along with the Site Blocking, neither one of which is in use for me by choice.

So for half the people the WebRep icon is there in Firefox, and the other half not. Well, I think that I am going to quit using it anyhow :-\

Greetz, Red.

If you update from the GUI it is there and appears working

If you install using the installer both in he change mode and clean install it is not working

I tried to disable in FF, uninstall in AIS, close FF, reopen FF, install in AIS and WebRep still not working

TeraCopy also not working

I uninstalled it, downloaded the last installer file, reinstalled it.

AIS auto-sandbox asked me what I wanted to do with the program as it identifies it as suspicious.  I said approve permanently or what ever the phrase is.   TeraCopy installed but did not run.

So I just uninstalled it and am now using Windows to do my cutting and pasting, copying and moving.

I just tested it and I can confirm that the sandboxing is indeed working in XP even if it's not showing under Additional Protection. I downloaded OTL which is known to trigger a sandbox alert. It did give the alert and when I chose to run it sandboxed, I did get the red border around it as can be seen in the following screenshots.

Also a problem with "enable rootkit scan on startup"

I don't recall if my installed AIS was set to do this before applying the update.  I never paid attention to it.

In any case with the rootkit scan enabled to run at startup I had to wait until the disk light went dark before logging in successfully.

If I attempted to log in as soon as the login screen came up the system would freeze.  If I waited long enough for the system to unfreeze itself at login some times it would and sometimes it wouldn't.  When the system did unfreeze itself at login it would proceed to attempt to install the desktop.   When it attempted to install the desktop the system it would freeze on multiple occasions in the middle of installing all the startup programs to the desktop and did not properly install all my startup programs.

So I just unclicked the option to "enable rootkit scan on startup" and now the startup appears to be working as before.

Update from GUI - "Screen Saver" scan remains visible as a "Scan Computer" option.

Clean install "Screen Saver" scan does not appear as  a "Scan Computer: option, though it does scan when the screen saver comes on.

It also shows up in the "Scan Logs" but again not showing up as a "Scan Computer" option.

This means that while it runs it will only run the default settings.

Solved:  I had forgotten that you have to click "Show Special Scans" in "Settings"---"Basic" for it to show up in the "Scan Computer" section

WebRep is now working on the computer in which I did a clean install.

However the first time you go to a webpage after installing AIS and WebRep rather than updating through the GUI it takes a long time for the bars to show a color.   After that the bars are there when you go to the webpage.

For example I just timed Twitter and took two minutes before the bars filled out.

NASCAR Nationwide website took six minutes before the bars filled out.  Fortunately there was favorable article about Danica that I could read while waiting. :)  Go Girl :) :)

Well why it isn't under the Additional Protection section in XP is still the question, when in my win7 netbook with avast free 6.0.1027 (see image) the Auto-Sandbox entry is in the Additional Protection section.

The entry for it in the File System Shield has always been there, if you clicked the settings of the auto-sandbox in the additional protection section. So for it to be buried inside the FSS, Expert Settings isn't ideal and no doubt not intended or it would be that way for win7 also.

I agree that it is a glitch involving WinXP only, it seems.  However, that is not a reason not to test 6.0.1027 on WinXP.  So far, everything is working perfectly on my machine, except for the disappearance of AutoSandbox from Additional Protections.

You need to monitor the file system shield and see just what it is scanning as it doesn't just do it of its own accord.

If no activity on the FSS then check the other shields as it is used for all shields. If you had any background p2p activity, etc. then it should be rotating.

Thanks David. This began immediately after update, and there is definitely FS activity when the issue ocurs but it isn't anything I have initiated. I know scanning is happening (I can see files being scanned in FS) but it hasn't been initiated by me.
Seems to subside upon reboot, but then can reappear. ???

Its is there under Windows XP Pro
thanks folks...

Well why it isn't under the Additional Protection section in XP is still the question, when in my win7 netbook with avast free 6.0.1027 (see image) the Auto-Sandbox entry is in the Additional Protection section.

The entry for it in the File System Shield has always been there, if you clicked the settings of the auto-sandbox in the additional protection section. So for it to be buried inside the FSS, Expert Settings isn't ideal and no doubt not intended or it would be that way for win7 also.
Even though it was showing in Additional Protection before, I don't feel that it's necessary to be there. I always wondered why it was to be honest because it really isn't "Additional Protection" in the way that Web Rep and Site Blocking are, but is a part of the File System Shield and is enabled by default. I think they just put it in the Additional section because it was a new feature. I myself, would be okay with it not being there in future releases for all OS versions.

The whole point is the inconsistency of it in Additional Protection in win7 not in XP.

I don't much care where they put it, but where it is is buried and the average user isn't going to see it. Not to mention when marketing is going to make a big deal about it, a feature it should be easy to find.

Everything seems good on XP except for icon spinning.(And missing Auto Sandbox in Added Protection)
As I mentioned in another post, the Avast Icon is 'constantly spinning' on my Laptop XP and won't stop. Of course, AvastSvc.exe is working overtime but I can't tell why it doesn't stop spinning. ???
Anyone else ever experienced this constant spinning? :-\
That is one reason I went back to v6.0.1000 as it messed up Acronis True Image Home 2011!
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=73620.msg611388#msg611388

I have also gone back to v.6.0.1000 on my laptop and the spinning's gone. ;D
Oddly, there is no icon spinning problem on my Desktop XP with v.6.0.1027
Go figure. ???

1. This is unrelated to infections...
2. MBAM doesn't need running in safe mode, normal mode is better for MBAM
3. I know the machine is clean.

My problem is to do with something within the beta interfering with the starting of ToshibaServiceStation.exe...

The only thing I'm noticing other than the sandbox not being in the GUI is that it's taking about twice as long now for definition updates to be applied. There seems to a lot more hard drive activity and performance impact while updating is going on than there ever has been before.

I don't know what the ToshibaServiceStation does, but if it modifies any system setting it might fall foul of that option in the Behavior Shield, Expert Settings, Monitor the system for unauthorised modifications. Try unchecking that option and see if it makes any difference.

Anything in the behaviorshield.txt file relating to it ?

Yes the sandbox does appear to be working right. I downloaded the OTL.exe program to test it since people had said that it produced an alert but it didn't for me in v6.0.1000. It does give the alert now and does get the red border when you choose to run it sandboxed.

I had to go back to 6.0.1000!
The latest betas (1021 and 1027) are a major disaster om my computer.
1. BEX-error on a lot of programs.
2. Some DLL's refusing to load causing programs to close.
3. Installing new display driver (ATI) made computer hang with strange patterns on the screen.

After going back to 6.0.1000 everything is like normal.
...ok, so I tried once more - installed .1027, and a lot of trouble again.
Back to .1000 one more time - everything is just fine again....???

6.0.1027 and the prior beta seemed to break Yawcam (webcam server) no issues with the webcam server for over a year with no problems. With the two betas, it does not load the webcam server. I also had some problems with Quickbooks and my data access. Quickbooks could not access my data and said that the file is in use. However the file is not in use by any other user.  This has been the same configuration we have used for quite a while. It worked fine with 6.0.1. In addition while experienceing these problems to try and fix, I did a system restore and that went awful.  Avast did not work, the unit would not start except in safe mode.  I restored back to the latest configuration, uninstalled 6.0.127 and everything is back to working.  I tried turning off all sheilds and it did not help the webcam server.

Easy2Sync for files and Easy2Sync for outlook are now broken.  Easy2Sync for files triggered request to sandbox, I said to allow and now the program doesn't load or ask. Easy2Sync for outlook never asks. Same on 3 different machines, two running pro, one AIS. Both programs ran and synced automatically until .1027 installed.

Win7/64

updated - a reinstall of both Easy2Sync programs netted me one machine where both are working and one machine where only E2S for Outlook is working. The machine where it is working Sandbox asked and I allowed to run normally and checked to not ask again, The one where it is not working did not ask for Sandbox.

A reinstall of Yawcam and manually adding to BH sheild did not help

Uninstall of .1027 - reboot - CCleaner - install .1000 and Yawcam is back working. Re-installed .1027 and the problem is back.  Back to .1000 and all is again good.  Not sure exactly what is getting blocked, but .1027 is the problem.

I'm afraid to try it, Tech.
Why?
Reading the posts have scared me away. I'll wait for the next beta release.

I put this beta (1021) on my main machine and don't want to get in trouble.

Makes me ask why you opted to try the first pre-release version, having taken the first step, 6.0.1027 fixes some things in 1021 ???

If you are going to take part in beta/pre-release trials then you really need to take precautions, like having drive imaging software to take an exact image of your system before the beta. That way you can revert to that copy in minutes with no problem. You should also be backing up your data as a regular practice and that would include your iPod content too.

lol I agree with you... that just makes me smile because that reminds me of beta testing threads on Comodo forums a few years ago where some mods use to post once in a while...if too many users were complaining - as opposed to just reporting - about bugs... so the mods use to post in big bold chars that "this was beta software, use at your own risk, you can lose data etc...." the message was sometime appropriate, sometimes not. In the case here again David I agree with you ;)

just to add that Vlk should may be specify this very clearly each time he starts a new thread relating the beta testing of a pre-release version of Avast, something like a banner telling everyone that the software is available for testing purposes exclusively, shouldn't be used in a production environment etc... can lead to system instability... : doesn't matter if some of it does not correspond to reality, it is "potentially" true.

1000, 1021 and now 1027 have all worked flawlessly for me on 3 machines. Two W7 x64 machines and an XP x32.

I agree. On the pre-release 1021 it said something like "try out this release a few days before it's released to everybody as a final". I thought the final release would be out in 24-72hrs, based on the above wording.

1000 works fine.
1021 and 1027 gives BEX errors and preventing some dll's to load. Tried three times now.

No issues with original 6.0 as it is.

I think 1021 was better than 1000 for XP users and caused me no problems at all. 1027 works but has the gui glitch with the sandbox and seems to take a lot longer to boot, update, and even scan than 1021 did. No major problems, just small things.

These are not Pre Releases but Betas and should be treated as such.
Unless you know what you are doing leave them alone.
Maximum care is required

What about copying the link from 1027 and changing the number to 1021? That should work to get the previous beta.

Have a folder on your downloads. I marked mine "Downloads",
simple huh. Then when you want to try a program, just put it in
the download folder, then Run it. If you keep the program that is
working in a folder, then if the new one has a problem, you can
just re-install the working one. I do that with all my down-loads
and don't delete working programs until you are sure updates will
work. This plus, copy working program to disc so you can re-install
it.

it will not work, using the 1021 download leads to 1027 and i assume Avast replacing the files hardstyle thus 1021 is not available anymore

@tedw obviously i didn't keep copy of 1021 installer otherwise i would not need it ...

@rambo1940 be happy it works for You - as for me not ...

I just installed version 1027 after version 1021 wiped out my ability to restart my computer.

I uninstalled version 1021 through windows uninstaller, then used the Avast uninstall utility in safemode to completely remove all traces of Avast.

I installed version 1027 as a clean install.

I can now restart my computer, however now I have a new problem.

Boot scan does not run. My computer just bypasses it and restarts.

My operating system is Vista Home Basic.

Inspite of this, I have used Avast for many years. It is a good product. Thanks to the team for all your hard work!

Maybe Avast should have a new update 6.0.128 that fixes
1.Pc no longer crashes during install.
2.No conflict with Rapport Trusteer.

How about (SMB) problem - getting incomplete listings from shared folders? Has it been solved?

Details are in my topic: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=73581.0

Not fixed in this version yet.

Thanks. Good to know it's being worked on. I'm still using 5.1.889. Thanks for the reply.
