AVAST 8 Program update! (8.0.1483)
« on: March 07, 2013, 02:38:16 PM »
Hi all,
we've just released program update for avast! Free/Pro/IS/Premier (8.0.1483). This is a very light program update fixing issues
you mentioned here on the forum related to original release of AVAST 8.

List of changes
•   Fixed issue with ZoneAlarm
•   Fixed issue with constant CPU frequency
•   Fixed issue with video players
•   Fixed issue with Virtual PC
•   Added some localizations

Download locations
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup.exe
 
It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).
Or you can use the in-product updater.
 
Sorry for troubles, thank you for your patience and we hope that you will enjoy AVAST 8 without any problems now! :-)

thanks,
Pavel

Thanks for the release, will update.

@subhendu
Please start your own topic, here is just a release notification thread, not about firewall.
BTW, I think there is no need to disable AutoSandbox and Behav Shield to use Comodo FW...
Main: Win10 Pro 21H2 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 22 Premium Beta(Icarus) / Comodo Firewall (testing again)
Mobile: Win10 Pro 21H1 64bit / Core i5-3340M 2.7GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 21 Free / Windows Firewall Control

Avast の設定について解説しています。よろしければご覧ください。

You didn't say which version of Windows you are running but if it's Windows 7 or Vista  then I can suggest something that works very well.  Download a program called Windows Firewall Notifier. It will turn on the outgoing filtering of the Windows firewall and provide you with an easy to use interface to create outgoing and incoming rules. It's a great little utility.

I love Xmas and often have a green face after a night out. Love it.

Regarding the update, is it advisable to download even if I don't experience the problems associated with it?
