« on: April 21, 2015, 09:32:30 PM »
Hi Avast users,

I'm glad to announce a new version of Avast Antivirus for Windows (Free, Pro, Internet Security, Premier).
Version number: 2015.10.2.2218

What's new:
  • Faster start after reboot - some components are loaded later
  • File System Shield -  solved incompatibility with TrueCrypt
  • File System Shield - exclusions work again
  • Added option to install Skype during Avast installation
  • StreamFilter - Improved compatibility with other AV products

Download links:

It's recommended to use the in-product update (Settings->Update->Program), if you have Avast already installed.

Any feedback is welcomed.

Enjoy this version.

Over the top installation.Everything looks good.
Didn't see Skype offer during installation.
Thanks.

Edit :
After this update and reboot, I lost all restore points including one created by Avast.
I don't know if this is connected with Secure Virtual Machines or something.

The problem with a silent install of Skype in the last beta appears to be fixed in this final release of Avast.
Thanks
