List of changes
•   New SecureLine component
•   Screen readers compatibility improved
•   Software Updater improvements
•   Improved stability & performance
•   Fixed glitches in UI

Download locations

Finally, thank you. Hope all the hard work was successful.

Imagine it will take a little while for servers to get up to task as I attempted through GUI but simply stayed at 1483.
No worries ;)

Damn! Tried to update via GUI but kept getting Error on reboot. Eventually had to use Safe Mode, Uninstall Avast and am now going to attempt installing from Set-up File.
Updating through the GUI should not cause this kind of result. If I were not computer literate, I'd be screwed! Just not acceptable. :-[
See how it goes with Clean install ::)

Edit: I should mention this was on my Win8 OS

OK, Install (after removal 1483 in Safemode)  via the downloaded Set-up File went fine (OnWin8).
Still, I can only imagine what kind of reaction this failed process would cause from someone without Computer/software experience. 8)

Well I install it manually over the current 1483, no issue so far, except the FF webrep plugin :-\

I am referring to the failed update via the GUI (built-in) software update feature, not an update overtop. ;)

I just updated Avast Free from version 8.0.1483 to version 8.0.1.1488 via the GUI. All went well and my Windows 7 system (X86) is running properly.

Confirmed on my machine, but after all the reporting of that bug I believe nobody is really interested to fix it.   >:(

Updating from the avastUI in both the 8.0.1487 beta and regular 8.0.1483. For some reason the 8.0.1487 beta is stating that this is the latest update, but the 8.0.1483 installation on my win7 netbook detects it and is updating now.

Edit: BSOD on reboot on update from 8.0.1483 installation on my win7 netbook, rebooted three times, BSOD on every one. Looks like I will be doing a clean install on this system.

Generated support package including mini and full dumps, this is meant to be automatically uploaded.
