So far I'm still using aVast free version 8.0.1483 because the program did not warn about the existence of a new version.

Any problems? This is normal?

The update-warnings are evenly distributed over several weeks to minimize server load.

This is normal the update is spread over a time frame to balance server load, with 180+ million users you have to do that they all can't update at the same time. Now you know it is available you can do a manual program update from within the avastUI.

So if you deactivate WebShield you have Internet? Are sure it's not any other security software? Emsisoft Online Armor f.e. likely sets in Firewall\Ports -Tab (only while Programs are ok) AvastSvc as blocked after an update. Ah - just got - it's the same pc/laptop? If so it can't be s.t. like that (except rules for places change). If you got the Desktop at home and laptop at university you might want to check.

I also use my laptop at home. It seems that there problems with Avast and Bayandsl. My friend also experiences no internet connection if webshield is on and she is connected to bayandsl. Problems with internet does not occur if connected to other internet service providers like my university or pldtmy dsl

I am currently not using any 3rd party firewall on my laptop.

My desktop is currently broke so I can't test that.

@SpeedyPC: don't worry, we have already looked at your dump from 5/3. The BSOD was caused by avast network driver, it was fixed with an EM update (during Friday/Saturday I guess). It means, when user installs avast, this patch should be automatically downloaded & applied. It's a temporary solution until we release new program update (it's planned on this Th/Fr, I guess).

Any idea why avastsvc.exe sends two TCP packets to slcw.ff.avast.com after each reboot?

Thank you PK I'll let them know finally haft of my friends are currently using v8.0.1483, it took me while to fix 18 computers and 6 of them didn't create a system image backup and it was a real pain.

Also told them not to download or update any latest version of Avast until I give them the go ahead, they can only used to keep their virus database up to date automatically which is a good thing.

Good to read that there will be a new programm version. 

So it's the best simply to wait until this version is released and the first experiences with this update are reported ...

I sure hope the updated version solves my issue on Win8 64 Bit as I use Avast PRO> and 1488 when installed my Laptop will not start, just goes into a loop>>>> the SAD FACE message stating something along the line " There is/was a problem with your PC starting, we are collecting error information and will reboot for you"
Laptop attempts to reboot twice and then into Recovery Mode, at which point my only option is to uninstall version 1488

@ Speedy

I haven't tried getting really pissed yet. ???

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 (to 8.0.1488) 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.

Update - whilst a patch was made and worked, the latest release 8.0.1489 also resolves the problem as the update replaced the patched aswTdi.sys file.

See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=123563.0 for the latest release information.
