Why does version 7 feels slower for some reason? Quick scan used to be faster using same settings. And also on-access seems a bit sluggish on some occasions. Were there any changes done to the caching mechanism? Or the scan engine or it's heuristics (that would slow it down)?

@RejZoR, it had nothing to do with v7. There was a bug in scan engine and it was already fixed in vps update for both v6 and v7.

@pk
I've just performed a quick scan and it took quite long compared to scan times from before. I'll observe this further...

Btw, how do streaming updates affect cache mechanism now? I mean before the cached results were valid between updates. Now that streaming updates are received every few 10 minutes, are cached results still valid at all or just for this short duration?

The UI has had a slight update. Looks a little different now.
The support tool is a feature that collects log files etc together, allowing you to submit them to avast should theyy be requested when troubleshooting.

Just a thought, the "Quick scan / Running" mini UI that pops up when you minimize Avast! while doing a scan would be REALLY useful if it were moveable and not just able to be pinned. It would be nice to move it to my second monitor so I can monitor it while I do work on my first (main) monitor.

The prebeta was installed over 6. This new file was installed over that.

It was the upgrade install.

Message appeared shortly after the install started.

I'm going to uninstall and start over.

It happened for me too. Sluggish is the minimum. I'll try the new beta now.
Also, with the old beta, I need to disable WebShield to browse. Firewall, of course, AIS (and W7).

I see some severe performance problems related to the Chrome WebRep plugin. Try disabling it and see if it helps.

Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: RejZoR on February 08, 2012, 06:51:52 PM
I'm using Firefox. But the slowness isn't limited to browser. I'd say it's the most noticeable compared to version 6 when i download an installer (doesn't have to be that big, 50MB for example). Whole thing will just stall for a bit where with v6, i hardly noticed it. Quick scan is slower MB/s per MB/s (and as a result also takes a bit longer).

Quick Scan takes about twice as long on my system compared to the latest version of Avast 6, takes around 20 seconds now, compared to around 10 seconds on Avast 6. I'm using a SATA 6Gb/s SSD if anyone wonders why the fast scan speeds.

avast! 7.0.1396 works like a charm here, except for WebRep in Chrome. Updated from closed-beta build. Outlook 2010 seems to be a little bit slower since avast! 7.

On 2 systems, i could update pre-beta through built in updater. On my 3rd system, it crapped out on its own with the "file cannot be found" error. So i had to use aswClear.exe for v6, CCleaner, removed drivers on my own, erase all files in all folders and use good old JV16 PowerTools to scan for all the registry remains by hand. A 5 minute task for me but we really need to have aswClear that is designed for version 7. Most ppl will panic when uninstaller craps out and new installer refuses to run as well...

Post by: NateKoepke on February 08, 2012, 08:04:06 PM
Just in case if you have not known, before the Avast 7 beta, I had reported an issue with avast's rootkit protection code in aswSP.sys causing DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS blue screens when avast is installed on a computer with programs such as Citrix's ZenApp Offline and Online clients, Trustware's BufferZone (in case if anyone wants browser sandboxing as avast! free only does sandboxing for malicious applications), and Jetico's BestCrypt (file encryption software). The bottom line is that avast! seems to be deeming drivers that hook into the kernel in a certain way as rootkits and unloads the drivers, creating a false positive. Therefore, during the testing period for avast 7, a rootkit protection improvement or revamping may be needed.
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: dagrev on February 08, 2012, 08:26:12 PM
Also experiencing very slow quick scan.  Been running 28 minutes and at 45% finished.  Normally a full quick scan is finished in about 30 or less (once the first one is run).  I have even backed off the sensitivity to normal and I usually have it set to high.  All else is the same.  Only scanning at 8 MB per second.  Normally it's around 25-34 MBPS.

Slow I guess is good if it's going to be for better protection.

Cloud Services: "Connection not established" has show up.  It was established, so I don't know if that is a separate issue or the cause of the slow scan.  Possibly it does not need to be established all the time?

Everything else seems to be OK at this point.

The sandbox isn't "crapware", it is a very useful security feature. The community features can be turned off through the settings window (I am guessing you never bothered to look in v6/7). The Community IQ is actually pretty useful too.

To remove the unintrusive (completely harmless) ad in Avast, upgrade to Pro/IS or uninstall the product.

Everything seems to be working so have no clue about the error message.

Update:
I've done another reboot and this time there where no errors.
Doing some further checking, the error seemed to be related to the statistic since that information window also came up with an error which is no longer the case.

Installed 7.0.1396 Internet Security on my main desktop running 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate works like a charm and installed perfectly.

Installed same Free Version on virtual Windows XP Home SP3.

Was able to run the Remote Assistance from one to the other without issue. Feature request for this, you need to be able to send key commands such as Ctrl+Alt+Delete etc to the computer you are controlling.

I noticed that in AIS the"Market" is not listed.

Love the new UI

Uninstalling and/or Installing WebRep addons in IE, FF or Chrome does nothing in any browser.  Addon's stay non-existant.

Everything is going great! Will post updates if I find more bugs or more comments.

They probably aren't too large, you could zip them up and email them to him or by using the ftp function.

Upload the zip file to the ftp server ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming (ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming):
- Using Internet Explorer, Connect to the link and drag the file into the Right pane and drop it, that starts the upload, you don't have read access to this folder.
Give the zip file you are uploading a unique name (e.g. forumusername-dumps.zip, etc), so they can identify it. It might not be a bad idea to create a text file (readme.txt) with any relevant information, avast topic URL, user name, etc. etc. in the zip file. Not to mention posting the name of the file you uploaded in the topic acts as another searchable reference.

Update - the cloud services is showing as connection established right now - this is after 2 reboots
the only problem i see now is that there is just a slight glitch in the animation when the dot comes from the cloud and goes in monitor/city  :D

edit - err just after posting this comment connection not established again  :(

If you choose not to install remote assistance you get the following error when you select the remote assistance tab.

Surely it would make more sense to not have a remote assistance tab at all if it isn't installed?

I have 2 questions:

1) Will WebRep plugin available for Opera in avast! 7? I see Opera in the Browser Protection tab, i can check an option for Opera to be sandboxed, would be great to have WebRep too.

2) Is there any possibility to add Opera Next in the list of protected browsers? Don't know about Firefox Nightly builds,are they supported?

No, Opera WebRep plugin isn't ready yet. Maybe it'll be available in next 6 months. Not sure if Safari plugin is already installed in this beta, but it should be in final v7.

2) Is there any possibility to add Opera Next in the list of protected browsers? Don't know about Firefox Nightly builds,are they supported?
These two browsers have a stand-alone installation, so it could be possible to support them.

True indian, could you please stop bloating this thread by posting the status of your connection status every 30 minutes?
If you feel the need to keep telling the world about the status of your connection, feel free to start a new thread (preferably in the Beta section of the forum).

Yes, point taken. We know that the UI refreshes the connection status somehow incorrectly (the connection is being established correctly though) and we're looking into it.

Vlk, it would be smart to purge the BETA section on every new beta test (it's now full of outdated stuff from v5 and v6 that has no meaning anymore).
Just for the sake of reporting and reading that section easier. Either deleting old stuff or just moving all of it in the new "Older beta tests" subsection.

Custom Install in Avast Free also gives the Paid features like Firewall, SafeZone, etc & and are ticked by default & can be ticked/unticked.

So I did default install & it was fine, no paid features after install.

I wonder if custom install gives the paid features or paid products if installed?

Avast Anti-Phish Screen Attached

Anyone know if its is database only or some kind of analyzer like heuristics/behaviour too?

I think Get Me Out Of Here should have the word Recommended.

And after Clicking Get Me Out Of Here, either it should show the default Home Page or Something from Avast like You are safe now or like. The current page after clicking Get Me Out Of Here is not good.

When you attach an image it would help if you aren't using /maximized/full screen (1280x800) and or crop images to only show the relevant part of the image, that would keep the file size down. 

You can also save a file as 24bit (or even 8bit) .png format and that also reduces file size.

Hello,

avast! 7 looks great and indeed works well even on Win 8 developers edition.

There is slight problem with newly installed avast! 7 editions. However updates are working fine if you have installed the program before. The latest virus data base definition file is 120209-2.

Please bear in mind that avast! 7 is still in beta and all bugs are being fixed on daily basis.

Hi there,

Congratulations on new avast!7 beta. It is very nice designed.

I have problem with fingerprint sensor using it while submiting my sites (not to tipe mail and paswords every time) when IE 9 is sandboxed, not working at all. Also ObjectDock (which is hiden on top of the screen) not working while IE 9 is maximized (those was good on AIS 6).

Also sound problem.

Uploading/downloading pictures problem cousing crashes of IE9 sandboxed.

See you...good work.

slow scans, only happens when you upgrade from V6, otherwise not. Must be something wrong going on with the persistence cache happening during the upgrade process... or V7 not really compatible with V6 persistence cache generated files. I've see the issue happen twice now, after two upgrades (pre-beta and public beta), never happens after a clean install.

Really, unless you made that video yourself (I assume that is what you are talking about) then you have to take it with a grain of salt.  There is too much room for abuse.  I saw no cross-reference in which those ~5000 samples got flagged by anything at all......could have easily been benign.  Not to mention, scanning 5k supposedly infected files from right-click is not any kind of real-world test.

Also, it he appeared to be disconnected from the Web for that, so it is no good assessment of the cloud features at all.

And right before he scans the folder.....notice the red X over the Avast! icon.

Well the X means there are resident shields turned off... That's cuz avast! have to not reporting files before scanning folder.... And yes you are totally right about cloud features - he is disconnected from net so also from cloud

slow scans, only happens when you upgrade from V6, otherwise not. Must be something wrong going on with the persistence cache happening during the upgrade process... .... never happens after a clean install.

Not true in my case.  Slow scans with completely clean install.

Love avast! :)

Slow scans can occur after a clean install as there may be no persistent cache, so it will take a period of time, a few scans, etc. to build that back up and see the scan times come back down.

Yes.

But without knowing 64bit what, that would have to be a qualified yes.

Avast for windows has worked on windows 64bit for some considerable time, whilst it isn't 64bit native (and doesn't need to be), it has the prerequisite 64bit elements.

Hello dear friends of the development team of Avast Antivirus.

First of all I would like to congratulate you for this new version (beta yet) of Avast. The fact is that you never cease to surprise us all!

Anyway, I decided to try this version and I downloaded the BETA version of Avast Internet Security. During the installation process, I selected the installation type "compatible" because I wanted to install it in parallel with the previously installed antivirus I had on this machine, in my case, Kaspersky.

The fact is that during installation process, Kaspersky showed me a threat alert telling me that he had detected a "generic worm."

The alert read:

PDM.Worm.P2p.generic
Process: c: \ USERS \ ---------- \ APPDATA \ LOCAL \ TEMP \ ~ A05208 AV_SFX.TM \ AVAST.SETUP

I select the "Add to KAV exclusion list" and the installation process continued until the end without any errors.

I know this is a beta and beta versions usually have a lot of mistakes to correct and that is why I have reported this alert so that you can correct it before the official launch of the final version.

Once more time, congratulations and good luck with the final version. :)

My OS is Win 7 Home Premium, 64 Bits.

Best Regards

I just installed Avast 7.0.1396 in computer #1, it was a clean install and everything is working fine here, the only thing that I missed was the updater sound, I'm very used to Avast saying it updated the database.

I will play with it a little and get back with findings if there are.

By the way... Web Rep installed fine in Firefox 10 and Google Chrome..rm

Hi hectic-mmv!

Ok, but please do not overlook this feature becouse it would be great to work with avast and other security software on the same machine ... Another thing I noticed was that there was very slow when surfing the internet with firefox 10 / Win7HP/X64. I read in another post that has something involving with the webrep plugin... For everything else, my congratulations! :)

I'm about to try Avast 7 Beta and my question is if you have a new uninstaller for Avast 7?  Just in case we have troubles with this version?

The aswclear.exe currently doesn't have a specific avast7 element. When I had a problem with the pre-public beta I had to run it for avast6 twice before reinstalling it.

These are the joys of beta testing, you have to have a recovery strategy if the worst happens. I have hard disk imaging software and do a weekly backup; it is advisable to run a fresh one before installing a beta. So had the aswclear not worked that was the next resort.

Post by: kinfolk66 on February 10, 2012, 03:59:40 PM
I have several new bugs to report.

1. Right clicking in the add URL window for exclusions to Web Shield or Script Shield does not produce a context menu. URLs can be added manually but not by copy and paste.

2. There is a problem with adding a program to the exclusion list for Behavior Shield. A program can be added OK but once I leave the settings and then re-enter the settings, the program that was added no longer appears.

3. Some web pages do not display properly with Web Rep plug-in activated in IE9. With the Web Rep disabled, the pages display properly.

This is going to be a great release and the addition of streaming updates is most welcomed. Great job Avast Team!!!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP-1 fully patched. IE9.

[suspicious]Sandboxing browser won't be never in free version?[/suspicious]

there's no such thing like a sandboxed browser in Avast , but a feature in AIS allowing to sandbox any application . Well look, if you expect this to become free, then why not the Firewall, and why not in the end make the complete suite entirely free  ;D and how do you expect Avast to financially support the free version after that, with more ads ? ;D

ps: no sandboxed browser with a very particular exception called "Safe Zone", which actually runs in a special way (when compared to "normal" sandboxing), as it doesn't just prohibit potential malware from invading your system, but it mainly prevents your own system from interfering when you browse with it.

so you are talking about sandboxing... well there's nothing changed there, auto-sandbox is free (which is pretty cool), while manual sandboxing is not and won't ever be.

edit: oh wait I see what you mean, they added the ability to sandbox browsers from the web rep page... okay, so obviously that goes with the full non-free sandboxing module. ... that's just a convenience for pro and AIS versions.

So in the paid version, there is a new sandbox feature specifically for for web browsers? I was wondering b/c I was looking at the "Browser Protection" options and it says "this includes Webrep and sandboxing."  However I don't see any sandboxing mention anywhere in the expert settings at least in the Free version. 

I have a yearly sandboxie license that is about to expire in less than a month.  If this feature is what I think it is, I will just buy a AIS 7 license instead renewing my sandboxie license. 

 If the developers have a faq or a more detailed post on what exactly is new in Avast 7 I would appreciate someone posting it.

no there's nothing new, the ability to permanently sandbox browsers only appears there with web rep because this can be a convenient place to do so for Pro and AIS users who have that feature anyway, and always had it. Same thing is usually done in the sandbox advanced panel where you can manually add applications and get them permanently sandboxed, or from a right click context menu on any executable shortcut in Windows (run sandboxed once, or permanently).

Yes there is another case of a posted image (by chocholo)  that I can't see either, so I'm guessing that there are others for obvious reasons I can't tell how widespread that is.

If that were the only forum problem it would be of limited hassle, the missing modify buttons in my posts in the General Topics, Viruses and Worms or the  avast! Free/Pro/Suite forums are a real killer.
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: dagrev on February 11, 2012, 01:18:27 AM
Heading basically says: ashQuick.ex. Application error

Actual message in the box:
The instruction at 0x7705e41b referenced memory at 0x00000500.
The memory could not be written.
Click on OK to terminate the program.

Not sure why ver 7 started acting up then would not install.  Back to using ver 6 right now.  It loaded fine from the same clean snapshot.

Update: For some reason I was able to load ver 7 over top 6 with no error message.  I guess because it didn't need to do a install scan.

If you're part of the community, then new infections are received through the cloud, analyzed, new signatures added and
the update is pushed out to the community.
The collective gathering of this information is the Community IO

No you don't.
However, if you aren't part of the community and you're the one that happens to run into something brand new,
Then you could have helped the community to get new protection added.
Since you aren't part of the community, that new protection now doesn't  help any one because some one from the community has to
run into what you decided not to share before the cure can be past along.  :)


Hope that's clear.  The only thing that's collected is what actually infected you in order to help every one.

Hello,

In V6 there is a dependency between Script and Behavior Shields. If you don't have the Behavior Shield installed, the Script Shield will not load.
Now I was wondering if that dependency is still present in V7 (I think so) and if it somehow affects the new AutoSandbox or any other feature.
I'm asking just because I usually install neither the Behavior Shield nor the Script Shields in my system.

Thank you very much.

that's all I got from the release notes in the first post of this thread:
"Sandbox & Autosandbox improvements"  ;D

... okay this said, there are more settings available for manual sandboxing in V7 (Pro and AIS), and that's all I can see. The option to sandbox browsers from the webrep (browser protection) page is meant for AIS and Pro users too ... obviously ... but well I have a doubt now ... anybody running the free version could tell me if the option to run browsers sandboxed is available (again from the web rep section) ... or not? ... it shouldn't.

 Auto-sandboxing might have been improved too, but I have no idea how, may be in relation with the behavior and/or the script shield, but this has to be confirmed by a dev here.

on a side note, I believe that at least the behavior shield has always interfered with auto-sandboxing from day 1 (ie V5), but not exclusively. The file shield must have something to say too. Can someone from Avast confirm, or not confirm? thx.

I haven't posted too much over the last few months.   The reason,  I have been using W8-DP exclusively since November.  So I have been using W8 Windows Defender along with some anti-spyware programs and some on demand AV programs.   The combination has worked okay.

Having said that I am glad to see that Avast 7 Public Beta is now available.   I will wait until W8 Consumer Preview comes out at the end of the month before I go back to AIS.

I have read this thread and have two questions at this point.

Will there be a Metro version of AIS?
If so, any idea if the plan is to have available before or when W8 RTM comes out?  I have read W8 RTM will be available in August.

I used the free for ten years and last year decided you guys deserverved some monetary support, bought ais and have not been disappointed. Thrilled that cloud tech is entering the picture. Please keep it up, Anyone who reads this try to have a little patience as this is beta-- final should be great. I noticed that 7 install is more stable when upgrade from 6 and not a clean install. Again thanks to VLK and everyone else, I know that reviews are not that great for avast at some sites but avast has never let me down and that is what i care about. Please dont drop cloud.

The beta runs smooth here, but you've to decide what to do on your system...

Hello
I have downloaded version 7 of AVAST internet security
can I use it on my real computer not the vmware
or should I use avast 6 till version 7 final is out considering it has many bugs ?
It's beta and therefore requires that you take all the precautions that should always be used when running any beta software.
I've found it to be very stable but using beta's always come with risks.
Im running it on a regular system not VM.

Entering a beta trial isn't something to do lightly and much more so on a non-test machine. It is all about acceptance of a limited risk and how that may impact on your system. No one is going to be able to say exactly how it might react on your system as there are so many different system permutations.

You might have no problems at all, but there can be no guarantees on beta testing other than bugs can and at times occur on beta testing, most be moderate some less so. So it is important that you know and accept this (or wait) and most importantly have a robust backup and recovery strategy. Hard disk imaging software is such a strategy to make it easy to set your system back to what it was before the beta should you experience a problem you can't live with.

I have to agree with Asyn and bob. This "beta" (for me) has really been a good piece of work and I am continually impressed with the direction the dev."s have taken with security and esthetics (GUI presentation). :)

@ahmed adel,

I agree with DavidR.
Let me only add that you should also keep in mind that there's no removal tool available for V7 at the moment. As far as I remember DavidR wrote on this thread that he had to search and remove leftover of V7 manually in order to do a clean install.

Are there any beta testers in the "no cloud or other reporting of what's on my machine, no browser plugins, no remote connection features, etc" camp and exploring the beta's configuration/operation while sniffing the network for inappropriate Avast traffic?  If so... is it looking as though Avast 7 can be used without the objectionable components and features?
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: bob3160 on February 12, 2012, 08:03:08 PM
The v6 removal tool worked well for me. After using it I also removed the
C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast folder.
Fairly simple.
Beta testing is still only meant for those prepared to recover from unexpected problems.

Maybe I'm wrong but it seems to me that disabling the new cloud features in V7 would leave you essentially with what v6 is now. To me there is no such thing as "inappropriate Avast traffic".

Not entirely correct as I was able to run aswclear.exe for avast 6 (ran it twice for good measure) and that cleared out enough to be able to do a clean install of the beta. That however, was for the early closed beta trial where many bugs were squashed before the release of the public beta. Though the usual beta trial warning must apply.

Given the earlier commentary about some definitions/detections being moved to the cloud, I'm wondering if you'd even have v6 level protection.  I can't tell what is becoming cloud locked and what isn't.

I can't understand why all this "chit chat" in this main beta topic (which I hope it will be moved to the beta section some time in the very near future).

About the cloud, nothing is "moved" nor "dependent" on "it". Moreover, an off line system can still have the same protection than everyone else (and in fact, the final resulting protection is even better). No personal (nor commercial) information is collected or sent anywhere, specially when you can disable each and all these features. More questions not related to evaluating and reporting the beta? No problem, open a new topic. Thanks for help us (users testing the beta) to keep this topic cleaner to follow it.

Downloaded version 7 and began installing over 6x at the end of the installation received a error message stating "configuration error" at which point the installer disappeared. Version 6 was still installed. At that point updates for definitions would not update, nor would the program update. Tried to repair no good, at the point uninstalled version 6 and reinstall. Everything back to normal.
Conclusion: Version 7 would not install over 6

Congratulations to avast! team for the recent beta version of avast! Free Antivirus 7.0.1396.  The layout is much better and more attractive, in particular, the addition of Cloud Services.

However, the latter seems to be not securely established and is easily disconnected.  On several occasions, I have tried to disable/enable Streaming Updates (settings) after/before starting up my home PC equipped with Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

Perhaps, avast! team would look into the matter and remedy the adverse situation as soon as possible.

I get the same here, most of the time the cloud service is usually disconnected but as this is part of the beta program then there are to be expected problem's and the fault would more than likely resolve in the server side of things so i think avast would be working on this issue already i expect and hopefully it's resolved before the release of the stable.

The same thing happens now and again with Webrep to come to think of it but has been much better lately compaired to the previous months.

Hi Ivan, iv not had any issues with pages displaying wrongly but i did notice that webrep seriously slows down browsing, i'd actually thought it was just the usual slowness of the avast forum but when i tried it with webrep disabled everything was fast again.
I played around a bit with closing the browser, uninstalling webrep and rebooting then browsing again and all good but as soon as webrep is reinstalled and activated it's back to very sluggish performance again followed by myself disabling it again and browser is back to normal fast speed again.

I hope this can be improved on in future build's  :(

2 following the install I rebooted and left the computer for about 15 minutes, when I came back and attempted to login ... when that wasn't possible, something (?) timed out and the system was stuck on the windows spinning animation. Forced a shut down, booted and everything's still fine.

My guess is that that won't be a final version of 7 until around the time that W8 RTM is finalized which should be this coming summer.  Just a guess but I got I was pretty close on the 7 Beta when I said it would probably become available around the time that W8 Consumer Preview aka Beta became available which will be in about 2 - 3 weeks

Question:

It the intention to make avast! 7 fully compatible with UEFI computers?   

I only ask because of the boot scan.  My thinking is that boot scans will need to programmed to handle UEFI computers which replace the BIOS and have different Windows kernal load procedure, sequence etc than BIOS computers do.

Does anyone know?

Strange behavior I have experienced on my system.  I have not seen this reported previously, so excuse me if I missed it.  This happens whether I install it on top of version six, or do a clean install.  When I go to the virus chest and try to re size the columns to expand the information, the program crashes.  No big deal for me since it is a beta.  I thought I would mention it.  Currently a fresh clean install on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

Regards

My guess is that that won't be a final version of 7 until around the time that W8 RTM is finalized which should be this coming summer.  Just a guess but I got I was pretty close on the 7 Beta when I said it would probably become available around the time that W8 Consumer Preview aka Beta became available which will be in about 2 - 3 weeks
I saw something from Avast that said they expected v7 to launch about 2 weeks after the start of the public beta.

Hello!

Just for information - I found following in the forum of the german distributor:
AVAST plans to release the avast! final version 7 in approximately 2-3 weeks.

@Nesivos: avast! doesn't need to support EFI/UEFI at all.

Our "Boot time scanner" is a Windows program, it runs when the computer is started during Windows bootup (just like e.g. autochk.exe, it does essentially the same thing as Chkdsk but will only run during bootup). It's executed as the first application in the loading phase. I played a little bit with EFI programming and this layer is totally separated from Windows applications.

3. Some web pages do not display properly with Web Rep plug-in activated in IE9. With the Web Rep disabled, the pages display properly.


Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP-1 fully patched. IE9.

Hello,
can you give me some examples of that pages? Is it 32bit IE9 ?

Thanks,
Ivan.
Hi Ivan, iv not had any issues with pages displaying wrongly but i did notice that webrep seriously slows down browsing, i'd actually thought it was just the usual slowness of the avast forum but when i tried it with webrep disabled everything was fast again.
I played around a bit with closing the browser, uninstalling webrep and rebooting then browsing again and all good but as soon as webrep is reinstalled and activated it's back to very sluggish performance again followed by myself disabling it again and browser is back to normal fast speed again.

I hope this can be improved on in future build's  :(

Hi,
browsing performance should befixed in next build..

That is because this is a Beta version. You cannot update from the Public release to the beta version via the in-program updater.

You have to Opt - in which is done via downloading the beta installer and installing it.

I have been using this recent beta, launching all my programs in order to see if there is something wrong with Avast 7.0.1396 but everything is working good here.

1.-Avast 7 scans all my computer in 9 minutes, the same qty. of time it used to do it with version 6
2.-Web rep is working in IE9, Firefox 10.0.1, and Google Chrome
3.-Services in the Cloud are always working and connected
4.-AutoSandbox is working well and I saw the new way it scans files yesterday (I liked it)
5.-Registration went fine, I still have 360 days left.
6.-All shields are working very good and graphics too.
7.-E-mail shield is working fine with Thunderbird 10.0.1
8.-I haven't tried remote assistance since I do not have any one to try this new option
9.-Updates are going fine, 2 or 3 times a day.

So I think this is a very stable Beta, and I really should thank Avast Software for this.

I have a question though:
In Web Shield there is a new box saying (translating, since my language is Spanish) Scan traffic for well known broswer processes only (Should I thik this one? what happens if I don't?)

Another thing is that since I intalled Avast 7 it is Soundless... does it mean everybody testing this new beta is soundless too?

Please let me know your comments.

BTW, this is not a new option. It was actually existed from version 6.0.1289.
If you tick that option, then only the traffic of well-known browsers (IE, Firefox, Google Chrome etc.) are scanned. On default, the traffic of all processes are scanned.

Another thing is that since I intalled Avast 7 it is Soundless... does it mean everybody testing this new beta is soundless too?

Well I generally see it established, but right now it isn't established (XP Pro), so this is essentially like the WebReb when it was first introduced the backend infrastructure wasn't up to the task.

Since it has been confirmed by avast that this service isn't fully functioning in the beta, it may take some time to get that fully up and running.  For me it is a bonus when it works, but when not working I have the regular avast updates and I wait for it to be resolved. So little point in reporting every time it isn't working, it is working, etc. like the long WebRep it working, no its not yes it is, that was a death of a thousand posts.

Maybe it should say: "No Streaming Update received since the last VPS updat."

Or something along those lines. Having just two dashes there confuses users because no matter how you understand tech, you can't understand it. But if it's a short explanation, then that helps a lot.

Also, I do NOT want to install Chrome.   Does Chrome automatically come with it or something?  Let me know if it does, and if it works well in XP, I'll try it out when you get rid of Chrome.

Then wait, as no one can give you a guarantee, we don't know what else you have on your system. The whole idea of a beta is to test for and or identify bugs, so you have to accept that you might find one. So it is about acceptance of risk and that you might have to restore your system to pre-beta state.

If you can't accept that possible risk then wait until the regular release.

Chrome does come with the avast installer but during the install you have the choice to install or not, chrome is pre ticked ( two boxes ) so just untick them and as the others have mentioned version 7 is beta so if you have no experience or dont want the risks that come with beta's then dont go there.

Are you using a firewall? This is a very typical issue where the firewall doesn't recognize the program change and fails to ask because the avast service starts too early in the boot process.

Make sure that AvastSvc.exe has Internet access (typically deleting the rule and restarting the avast service works best).

Version 7.0.1401  has changed the size of the sidebar device.  Any reason for locking it to expanded size only? The compacted version fits nicely, this size gets in the way and would have to be closed.  Having the option to expand or keep it small (compacted) like it use to have would be good again.

Having tried the updated beta v7.0.1401 on my home PC equipped with Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (32-bit) for a few days, I am puzzled by the newly introduced cloud services, where reputation services and streaming updates are enabled as shown on the setting. 

It is obvious that the connection to these cloud services cannot be connected securely and permanently.  Are they connected to the server on an ad hoc basis?

http://www.facebook.com/avast/posts/10150588402432426

Hello from Prague! We’re glad to officially announce 23 February as the release date for avast! version 7. It’s exactly one year since we launched version 6, and we’re excited about our new features. Also, we’re looking forward to your feedback on version 7… starting Thursday!
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: DavidR on February 21, 2012, 06:46:25 PM
Its the 21st sod do you honestly feel the current beta3 build is close to being released, regardless of what has been said.

We are still seeing bugs reported (though not many serious issues), personally I would have though another beta build to confirm that previous bugs reported have been squashed.

I honestly don't care when it is released, only that when released it is fit for purpose, there are areas that aren't fully working yet.  Much of that may be to do with having the back ground infrastructure up and running, so that streaming updates, clouds services, web file reputation analysis, etc.

If the "connect to  account" is part of the registration process then that still needs to be addressed.

Yes it does need to be addressed as you also can't create an account.

It works fine Bob . You just need to create the account first by going to the site. Just having Avast doesn't cut it. There does need to be a link to the account page in the GUI however. That's the only thing that's missing IMO. I created my account without a problem at the site.

You can't sign into your account from the UI and can't establish an account either. Since that's part of the registration process, it has to work.

do you honestly feel the current beta3 build is close to being released

No, thats why I wrote "according to"

I don't care when it's released (but others do), beta 3 is stable here, but I know there is bugs in it, but I have no problem using beta 3, 4...47 or whatever, I'm a happy avast user regardless status of the current version.

But since avast wrote 23 feb on their official fb page, I posted the news...but I will walk back in the corner now and just lurk around the forum!

As you can clearly see from my last post creation of an account through the UI, isn't working, certainly not when I tried.

I know they weren't your words, but avast's, but I feel when you give a deadline like this you are A) putting yourself under pressure to meet that deadline and B) the disappointment when a deadline isn't met.

With the best will in the world and about 36 hours left and bugs still being reported, I take this kind of thing with a giant pinch of salt as early release of something that may still have issues to be resolved is the worst kind of publicity and undoes all of the good that has been done so far in avast7 beta.

Even if the accounts' site would be working, most users won't know what to do if the main GUI is not resolving all this. Moreover, if it is going to be related to the registration (ouch!), many users will be asking many questions (and no current relevant answers are publicly known). This by itself is bad PR, to say the least.

But in addition, many GUI little quirks are not yet resolved (and it seems, not going to be either), with some BSODs reported. As others said, an additional beta test *should* be available.

The installer, and program updates, are still having some issues. The only way to test some potential improvements is to have an additional beta.

KB support articles?

Well, now we are just wasting "posts", as once an official announcement is out, I don't see any of these "logical" comments being of any influence regarding the date. It is going out, with "pros" and "cons".

Yes it does need to be addressed as you also can't create an account.

Whilst there was no confirmation in the create account from from the UI and the egg timer was still rotating up until I X'd it closed, it does seem that it got through as I received an email, avast! Account - registration confirmation request. So the next step it to try and connect to it from the avastUI.

Once you have created the account, you get signed in automatically at boot up. Like I said, the part missing is the link to the account page since most people wouldn't have a clue how to navigate to it. I also just disconnected and tried to reconnect  both from the GUI and from the settings menu and it just hangs. I'm going to reboot now and see if it connects automatically.

It appears to be messed up from yesterday. I was connected to the account I made at my.avast.com but I disconnected and now it won't reconnect at all. It will from the web page but even if I do that it doesn't show connected in the GUI. It did yesterday so I wonder what happened. This is something they need to fix before release.

I just went through a long, unpleasant process with the new AVAST 7 IS. Up front, I'll tell you it probably wasn't AVAST, but not sure. More likely, it's the dummy at the keyboard.

I have Avast internet security 6. Last evening, I downloaded the new beta, out of curiosity, installing over the top of avast 6 is. I don't normally bother with beta programs. No settings were changed. Almost immediately, everything slowed to a crawl. My web browsers, both Google and Firefox 10 took nearly a minute to open and crawled along. I then tried to open other software, Word and a couple of writing programs, even solitaire and experienced the same problem.

My computer is an old refurbished Dell Dimension, Pentium 4 with Win XP pro, sp3, 2G ram.

I rebooted. No change. Rebooted again. No change. Hard booted, and no change. Today, since nothing had changed, I decided to remove 7 using the system restore point it created. It wasn't there. In fact, system restore didn't work at all. It still doesn't work in fact. All I get is a white box.

I went into Add/remove programs, figuring to remove avast that way and reinstall 6 and got some sort of error message that, unfortunately, I didn't copy. In any case, it wouldn't let me uninstall.

Finally, failing everything else, I used Revo uninstall and had to do a forced uninstall, then went through the computer and cleaned out all traces of Avast. I reinstalled 6 and all seems to be back to normal. Computer is running normally again.

As I mentioned, I won't blame avast. But, I changed nothing in avast 7 and downloaded it from the link posted at the beginning of this thread.
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: Charyb on February 21, 2012, 09:58:01 PM
I would try a clean install of v7 instead of over the top of v6. Personally, I do this with each version change and have had no problems.

You can download the avast! removal tool from here - http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
Just follow the instructions at the site.

+1 on a full version change (5 > 6 > 7), not with intermediary builds though.

The first beta (in this topic) was different than the current, beta3. So you shouldn't be downloading an old beta.

I'm not saying that this was your problem, but it might be.

It's hard to believe that so many people don't understand what a "Beta" stands for and they seem to expect a perfectly operating package.
Sorry for editorializing... but I just had to.
Thanks for all your efforts Avast Team, I'm sure Avast7 will be fine when it's released.

Although the expectation towards a beta version might be "too high" sometimes, every "complaint" is a report, which forces to improve the beta. Unfortunately, in many cases the complaint has no value as a report since no useful information is provided (starting with the version tested).

I am sure that is what you wished, however as stated the first time you made the same observation, the whole system is in BETA. The servers you post about are being worked on and as avast staff posted here  they were not going to be available 24/7 until the installations and testing are completed.

When its ready, regardless of what has been said in other topics and avast facebook, that it is meant to be today.

Deadlines, waste of time, just causes anticipation and disappointment if it isn't met.

Considering there is a bug in the release candidate which will have to be fixed before it can possibly be released or not only would people be disappointed if it misses the deadline or have problems with the regular program update release (if it is rushed out of the door) due to any serious/critical bug not being squashed.

@david there's just a bug in the RC installer (& uninstaller), nothing AV/Firewall/Sandbox etc... related. Won't stop them to meet the deadline ;)
Title: Re: avast! 7 public beta
Post by: DavidR on February 23, 2012, 05:28:01 PM
Well we don't really know that for sure as I for one didn't use the RC installer, but updated from the avast7 beta UI. So we don't know how this might play out when people update from the avast6 UI, as we have no way of testing that.

It rather depends on what the differences might be between using the avastUI in the beta updates and how the avast6 UI update to avast7 works.
