I almost flipped when I saw the yellow triangle on the Avast! traybar icon :P I didn't realise it could be a new Beta update ;D

Got a blue screen testing ng, running a suspicious app in ng while deepscreen was checking, I went to simulate installation and got blue screen, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE, linked to ntoskrnl.exe, after blue screen and reboot, I tried again and it worked so not sure whats going on there. I had a blue screen in previous beta related to vss also, seems like it could be an issue with creating vms maybe? I also have 2 avast antivirus (32bit)  in task manager.

Confirmed also seeing 2 Avast 32bit in Task Manager, NO NG option to install here, or i'd test that also, but I don't have it in my list on this PC for some reason, think Virtualization is on, but not sure

Is NG going to work without system restore after this beta?

No, sorry, this is planned for R3 (~June).

Thanks,
