Are there any gotchas (things slipped in that show up in task manager and nobody knows what it is) in this version ??   That's the one thing for me that's getting old/tiresome with Avast.

Speculation is pointless - try it and see - and don't forget to do a custom install and that way you can see what will be installed and uncheck those features that you don't require.

I'm talking about this:

I was hoping to find out if the new version fixed this problem. Maybe it didn't happen to everybody but apparently it was very common.

This has been fixed a long long time ago.

 :D
This version fixed my scan scheduling problem.  Since the prior update I had to set the schedule 7 hours ahead to have it scan at the time I wanted it to scan.  Then every 7th day it would actually scan at the 7 hours ahead time...what a pain.  But now it works as it should.

Actually.. NO thank you...

Hi

This is for whom ever decided that this update should be released!

yesterday, all was well, this morning no internet connectivity no matter how i do it.. wireless, cable... nothing.
uninstalled avast...all good..reinstalled avast... no internet.

I'm running 8.1 pro 64bit....

Have I wasted my money?

I don't have time to waste on this.. so let me know when you think I should try to re-install.

Pull the bug... undo or fix whatever you've done that affects the network subsystem and re-release it.

Oh, and don't ask me a whole lot of "questions".... put 2 and 2 together...It's not hard people!

regards

NG System Requirements ?

OK having now updated my - Acer Aspire One netbook, Win7 Starter (32bit) 10.1", 1024X600 screen, 2GB DDR3 RAM, Intel Atom N255 (1.5GHz dual core) CPU. to 2015.10.2.2214. It also has only a 250GB HDD not SSD.

I have a question on NG system requirements - when I saw NG trying to get started (my firewall jumped on it), I thought what the h3ll. I even disabled MBAM Premium's resident protection as it has an adverse resource impact.

My system specs are pathetic if I do say so myself an Intel Atom N255 (1.5GHz dual core) processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM, this is so under powered it couldn't pull the skin of a rice pudding. And that is before NG would try to shoehorn its way into my system.

Watching paint dry would be marginally quicker and avast thinks it is powerful enough to run NG (or whatever it is now called). Someone has to review the system spec to even consider installing NG.  Dual Core Intel Atoms are being used in tablets and phones and my Intel Atom is three years old for gods sake.

I only just noticed this post.
I haven't installed NG on any PCs with specs similar to yours yet, because I'm concerned about the subsequent poor performance.
The specified hardware requirements are riduculous, even without installing NG, https://www.avast.com/en-au/faq.php?article=AVKB1#artTitle
128MB RAM for an AV with VM? :o
I had to take it off an XP PC with 1.5GHZ CPU and 512MB RAM. Let's just say, the "paint" wasn't drying!!

@ John_Oz
What firewall are you using and is avast allowed access through that firewall ?

I just updated to this version with no problems but I don't want browser cleanup.  I tried a repair but didn't get the option to change anything.  Where can I find the browser clean up tool?

You should select Change instead of Repair :)
