Au démarrage de la machine, pendant qu'Avast se met à jour, aucune opération n'est possible.
Il semble qu'Avast prenne la main sur le processeur de façon exclusive.
C'est probablement logique mais peu ergonomique car aucun message n'indique qu'une tâche est en cours.
On se demande si la machine n'a pas figé ou si un problème d'accès à un site internet ou un périphérique ne rencontre pas de problème...
On n'est averti de la mise à jour qu'à la fin de la procédure. Mais pendant la procédure, rien.
Je n'ai pas trouvé de lien pour soumettre cette suggestion directement aux développeurs d'Avast alors je pose mon idée ici.
Je suggère de faire apparaître un petit gif animé (un sablier ou autre) aux couleurs d'Avast pendant la mise à jour, afin qu'on sache à quoi s'en tenir.
J'espère que ça parviendra jusqu'aux oreilles de développeurs   ;-)

To start the machine, while Avast updates, no operation is possible.
It appears that Avast takes the hand on the processor on an exclusive basis.
It's probably logical but little ergonomic because no message indicates that a task is in progress.
One wonders if the machine has not frozen or if a lack of access to a website or device meets no problem...
It is notified of the update at the end of the procedure. But during the procedure, nothing.
I have not found a link to submit this suggestion directly to the developers of Avast so I lay my idea here.
I suggest do appear a little animated gif (an hourglass or other) in the colors of Avast during the update, so that we know where to stand.
I hope that it will succeed to the ears of developers

For Avast 8, as a paid user, I hope that Avast itself will motivate their decision to adopt a license from Agnitum for the Avast firewall technology. I left Outpost on Avast 5 release to experience a whole new protection, even if I was aware of the fact that Avast firewall engine was at the beginning. While I know that Agnitum it's a major respected player in the security field, I was a bit unhappy to see that my security choice (AIS) is based on my previous third part choice. I'm also near the end of my AIS yearly license and it's time to decide to renew.
We don't know how much or how little of Agnitum's technologies will be implemented. We only know so far that the patch file that improves compatibility with Windows 8 is a licensed Agnitum file. I, for one, would not like to see the HIPS functionality implemented in any way , shape, or form but maybe some of that technology can be used in behind the scenes, totally silent, improvements to the Behavior Shield which I think everyone agrees does need improvement. I'm actually happy with the Avast firewall the way it is except for the lack of a way to easily purge old obsolete rules.

I don't know what they have planned for avast8, but if this isn't already included I would think it is too late to be included in the initial release of avast8.

My wishlidt for Avast 8:

1. Encrypted VPN
2. Option to upload files to VirusTotal
3. Make SafeZone better
      - Auto update Chromium
      - Block all plugins/extensions
      - Sandbox content both ways, so if you get a virus in SafeZone it doesn't affect your machine
      - Auto delete on exit
      - Better default settings in Chromium - For example have "Do not track" and block third party cookies enabled by default
      - Whitelist sites of banks/retailers to prevent phishing
      - Force HTTPS
      - Better privacy - prevent screenshots/keyloggers
      - Implement features like Trusteer Rapport has
4. Automatic sandboxing of web browsers like Sandboxie
5. Avast DNS
6. Avast Portable for flash drives
7. Anti-Executable
8. HIPS
9. Better Huestrics / rouge AV / root kit detection
10. Integrated password manager
11. Better/Faster WebRep - block sites/comments/privacy level
12. Website blocking by category - adult/gaming/drugs/social networking/advertisements
13. Avast Cloud Backup
14. Flash memory scanning
15. RAR/ISO scanning

With the beta release in the not to distant future, if your wish isn't already included it simply isn't going to make it. Not to mention some of your suggestions are stand alone products 'Avast Portable,' which was dropped many years ago.

Already there (or in other avast products).

Better default settings in Chromium - For example have "Do not track" and block third party cookies enabled by default
7. Anti-Executable
8. HIPS
Please, NO.

in avast 8 would be good to create an anti-theft eset great if the computer should be stolen, etc.: D In addition to this, as always, to improve stability proactive detection etc., other good things can be to implement a virtual keyboard, a mode that allows you to start avast systems infected with virus that does not allow you to start antivirus systems etc. that is heavily infected ... would be great: D

as antispyware tool is included along with antivirus detection he lacks in this aspect:
Drive by download
Drive-by download means two things, each concerning the unintended download of computer
software from the Internet:
 1.Downloads which a person authorized but without understanding the consequences (e.g. downloads which install an unknown or counterfeit executable program, ActiveX component, or Java applet).
 2.Any download that happens without a person's knowledge, often a computer virus, spyware, malware, or crimeware.
 
Drive-by downloads may happen when visiting a website, viewing an e-mail message or by clicking on a deceptive pop-up window:by clicking on the window in the mistaken belief that, for instance, an error report from the computer' operating system itself is being acknowledged, or that an innocuous advertisement pop-up is being dismissed. In such cases, the "supplier" may claim that the person"consented" to the download although actually unaware of having started an unwanted or malicious software download. Websites that exploit the Windows Metafile vulnerability (eliminated by a Windows update of 5 January 2006) may provide examples of drive-by downloads of this sort.Hackers use different techniques to obfuscate the malicious code so that antivirus software is unable to recognize it. The code is executed in hidden iframes and can go undetected even by experienced users.A drive-by install (or installation) is a similar event. It refers to installation rather than download (though sometimes the two terms are used interchangeably).

. toolbars are toolbars for browsers that do often see included in the installation of some application.some these toolbars contain spyware.
Toolbars are available as plug-ins for browsers that offer additional features such as search forms or pop-ups. Examples of useful toolbars are Google Toolbar, Yahoo Toolbar, Ask.com toolbar
malware tools etc. There toolbar plug-ins that are installed without user consent and display ads run activities and bother others.   

.clickjacking occurs when buttons on websites or domains are used as reliable hideout for codes maliciosos.ao clicking the sequetrado'''' O code is enabled User continues its navigation and normally without suspecting nada.O clickjacking ("theft click ") is a technical computing fraudulent. Occurs during a normal web browsing, where the user clicks on some object (can be a link or button image) and the page rendering takes unwanted or redirection. Typically, this vulnerability is developed purely for JavaScript and Iframe. This technique has been researched and described for the first time in September 2008 by Robert Hansen and Jeremiah Grossman.

. protection against active x controls.

the module of avast script must also protect against malicious scripts in the free version
activity prevents malicious scripts to compromise your computer or surf the iternet use programas.scripts can be as threatening as many viruses, damaging system files or change information.

What are Cookies?

Cookie is a text file containing some information about the time that you entered in a particular site, what pages viewed, among other information. Yahoo!, Google and other sites use cookies to facilitate navigation on site.O that differs such a tracking cookie, is that this is collecting all the information about your surfing (all sites) and sends the a site advertising. These, knowing their habits, sending advertisements 'custom' and your browser begins to receive little windows pop up (the ones that suddenly appear on your screen without you having requested) or even by sending e-mail advertisements, among other possibilities. . These cookies
has the function of collecting sites that you access, collect your locality besides collect various information using the Internet. Normally this information is used for sending advertisements to you. In some cases it is using to steal information and harm your PC.
ideally Avast implement the feature secure file deletion suspects. This would avoid any risk of them remain in the folder recovery Windows.For to protect the MBR, I think that Avast should follow the path of Comodo, ie investment in virtualization processes.

lack put in the database antivirus detection of virus Dexter virus, Trojan Zero access, malware Trace.

avast should deploy a new technology in their behavioral module become more sensitive paras those threats which are still no detection signatures.brought more suggestion to clean or sanitize option, the antivirus would remove the virus file and let clean off without him, I think that the lack avast.Nem all malware that infects a legitimate file option allows disinfection - sometimes the simple malware removal destroys the contents of the file this way preventing legitimate use.

Moreover, there are cases where the removal of malware can be made without prejudice to the legitimate file.

So consider rather important that there is always the option "disinfecting" and another of "exclusion", considering the degree of importance that the recovery of a particular infected file can represent to the user and there is of course technically possible to do so.

virus file can only be removed through programs antivirus.o antivirus program has a database containing the code number vírus.he compares all files on the hard drive (or floppy) with this database, the search for virus.found, this same database shows how to disinfect the infected file.and, in general, the virus only glue'''' its code to the executable file, the virus removal is possible without spoiling'' file'' infected.however, certain types of viruses which overlap portion of code file executable, destroying part of the file to automatically infect lo.com ie, removing the virus becomes impossible because the original file can not be recovered
.however, the antivirus is able to point po virus infected files and recommend such they are deleted.this the case of virus Fredy Kruegger, for example.

What has these books you are posting to do with    [Wishlist] For avast! 8 - Suggestions and discussion.

Could probably have been condensed to one or two lines, or people just won't read it.

When you are talking detections and improving them that is an ongoing task for the virus labs team and isn't version specific.
