keloo05, the list is anything but complete. But you are of course right, the Ad Blocker is another new feature.

Thanks

A minor typing error on "FIx now" on the software updater page. Should be "Fix now"

Yes still showing RTM build 8.0.1481 as already up to date, have tried a few times, but still no joy.

I have been able to get the program update from my win7 netbook that was on the avast 7.0.1474, now I didn't get the usual update screen, where I was able to do a custom update and I ended up with browser cleanup, software updater and Ad Blocker that I wouldn't have installed on a pre-selection.

It had the winpatrol plus crash again but much earlier in the game, but again when asking about new startup entries.

My XP system with avast 8 RTM is still reporting up to date.

updated by auto mode from 7.0 without SafeZone (I didnt install it, because didnt use it) to 8.0

Problems:
- launch the browser in a sandbox does not work
- Sandbox Settings are not saved

it's because I did not install the SafeZone or?

Both my Sandbox and Safezone are working fine. However I did a clean install. The safezone and sandbox are 2 different components so I doubt not selecting the safezone would effect the sandbox.

Windows 7 64-Bit here. Streaming updates are enabled but how do you check for sure if you get them? Any specific log?
From the desktop Right click on the avast icon>Click on "open file location">double click on "defs"  :)
