What's wrong with Browser Cleanup?

And Steven, why do you think we do not focus on security features?

Cheers,
Vlk

Well im not sure, there were some works on security in the 2015 version Ondrej, but take a look at the latest
AV-Comparatives Summary report: http://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/avc_sum_201412_en.pdf

Youre the most widely used AV on the market right behind Windows Defender/MSE, you could get great protection via Cloud
in the direction of Trend Micro which can block new threats within minutes, tested it myself.

What are you working on for 2016 versions security-wise? Or is that top secret :)

One thing you should work on are False Positives, these can get quite annoying, especially for your business users, even tho Avast has mostly private customers
if im informed right.

Bottom of window cut off. Selecting, "Complete Free Cleanup" does nothing.

firewall,spam are in internet security and the auto(manual in other editions) software updater is not worth paying the additional money,in my eyes there are no reasons to buy premier.

What's wrong with Browser Cleanup?

Users end up with majority of their programs removed,False Positives,codecs detected as browser protectors,
stupid rating system based on avast community ...

as potentially unwanted plugin and Avast wanted to remove it which ive denied

in the direction of Trend Micro which can block new threats within minutes, tested it myself.

For sure 2014 wasn't a very successful year in terms of our showing in various industry tests, but hasn't that dramatically changed with v2015?

- 100.0% detection rate in December (AV-Test.org real-world)
- Significant improvement in AV-Comparatives' test as well - for details see here: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/how-avast-is-performing-these-days.371019/#post-2437926

and the cloud stuff is getting better every day, which I am sure will be clearly visible from other test results in the next few months...

Will install this Beta right after my Backup is done.

I already broke my system with the combination Avast 2014 RC 2+ Windows 8.1 Preview, rendering it unbootable
giving about two dozends of errors.

@Vlk: i noticed its getting better over time now. There are still some issues with malicious files files running undetected by Avast

PS: Your free version of Avast for Business is really nice :)

Thanks. We're absolutely devoted to disrupting this space the same way we disrupted the consumer AV space a decade ago... :-)

Someone already removed the BCU to see what happens with the UI ?
No sign of it after going to programs and features and uninstalling it.

No issues installing on Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9926 (German Version):

Avast NG is still based on VirtualBox, but this is only the first Beta Version, they wanted to move away from
VirtualBox as well as they wanted to revamp the context menu in the system tray.

If Browser Cleanup is integrated in Avast UI I'm not going to update Avast.
Why are you doing this ? In my opinion Browser Cleanup is horrible and very dangerous app.
