LOL, also saw this with Safe Zone Browser.

These should be whitelisted :)

Try a couple reboots. If that does not help run a Avast repair :)
Yeppp.. I had to do the repair option because a couple of reboot didn't help.Thk ;)

When is this ever going to be fixed ???
I have no intentions of using either Yahoo or Bing and certainly don't want my homepage changed.  :'(

Hi Bob. Even in the paid version you are limited to and required to select one of the two search providers and agree to the terms. Having to agree to a third parties terms after paying for AIS is ridiculous.

What is this 8 Karma to the right of the email address ?

Or perhaps, why is it there ?
Clicking it displays the logon screen for my.avast.com, in the User Interface - Exactly what happens of you clicked on the email address.

So perhaps the question should be why the redundancy ?
I thought that we/avast were meant be removing the email address.

You earn Karma with each Grimefighter scan. Yeah!

Each scan earns you points called "Karma," but, as with Jumpshot, there's nothing you can do with these points yet. They do serve to measure how much work the scan had to do, and a scan that reveals a new threat for the program's database gets an extra dash of karma.


I have 10 karma and Grimefighter doesn't even install on my system.

I'm on Windows 8.1 Grimefighter isn't installed:

I did create a video showing how SmartScan works. Wonder if that's why I have
so much karma? Maybe it's just my personality ???

I have 10 karma and Grimefighter doesn't even install on my system.

Snap - I didn't like the concept of GrimeFighter - the same as the other optimisation programs. So I left the option checked in a very early beta when it was first introduced as a concept and to gather stats on it.

I have never installed it or run it - and ensure that option is unchecked when doing a custom install of avast. So how I manage Karma points is beyond me. For me GrimeFighter is Bad Karma ;D

Will Dyna-Gen be in at some point? Or is it postponed?

That is the same thing I am interested in.Don't know if there is really going to be dyna-gen as promised in 2015 version or is it just one of those marketing hypes again.  ::)

I'm a bit disappointed by all the silence going on around v2015 version (testing and later). I don't remember suck lack of communication and overall silence between users/testers and the team. I've only seen them around for few issues people were having but many things went by unanswered and Dyna-gen is certainly one of them. Or some general idea where DeepScreen with NG is planned to go. I mean, i still love avast!, but they always seem to have great plans and then nothing happens. Auto Sandbox promised a lot but in my eyes delivered very little. They say it had tons of detections yet i've seen like only few of them in all the years. If something is truly effective, even end users notice it, not just devs on their backend statistics. When ThreatFire was still actual, i've seen so many heuristic behavioral detections i could see it as super effective. Kaspersky PDM? I've seen it detect stuff so many times i just can't deny its efficiency. BitDefender's AVC? Seen it hundreds of times. Then DeepScreen arrived and while it did fix the EXE execution transparency which was a bit awkward with Auto Sandbox, it's efficiency was still very poor in my eyes as i rarely ever see it detect anything. Like they only use highly specialized behavior detection rules for only malware families and not general heuristics for broader ranges of malware. So, how will NG improve things if at all? If you just plan to replace old VM with new one and not invest in it further from that we won't see any real results. And here is another thing that is bothering me. Most of other companies, when they launch a new version with new protection capabilities, they in most cases already operate at near full capacity on release day. With avast! it's a very annoying trend of announcing something with new version and the announced features then slowly and gradually get incorporated over the upcoming months. And then new version arrives and again does the same. It's also a bit annoying from a promotion side for us, users and promoters. You're suppose to tell users (and attract them this way) that new version is so much better but in reality it's not and it will or might become better over time. People don't go into things because they "might" get great over time. They want to use them because they are great this very moment and might become even better in the future. Someone at avast! should really do something about it.

Good question, I'm also interested in an answer.
