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

Martin

I want to know what was changed, because this bug costed my 5 days searching and testing!!
My download problems in win8.1 32bit are gone after the update to 2015 R2SP2 (2015_10_2_2218)

Edit : After this update and reboot,I lost all restore points including one created by Avast
Why would that be?

Maybe NG related?

It would be nice to do update but I have tried tried twice and it crashes my internet access. Something about the DNS setup. I can go back to the restore point and everything works again.

I am using the Avast update system. What do I need to do or send to try to get past this problem?

Avast alerted me of this new version so I clicked it to proceed with the update through the UI > Program > Update. 10 minutes later and 2 reboots ( Just to make sure ) all is up and running nicely. BTW after the first reboot Avast showed its window where Chrome is offered.

Which makes spotting it hard and something that the average user will totally miss.
Guess we'll get to hear about it here on the forum.  :(
Are you using Unchecky ???

Not that hard if you do not suffer from the click, click syndrome, but yes, we will be hearing about it, and not only that but about Skype too.

No Bob, I do not need unchecky. I do make custom installs and read every window the installer opens, but I recommend it in the Spanish forum to the average user to avoid those nasty gifts which come grapped in free software people usually download from the web.

Thanks for remind me though.

No answer (until yet).
Hopefully I get an answer when asking to admit that something (not what) was changed according to downloads.

I see that some other respondents have successfully installed version 2015.10.2.2218 on Windows XP SP3.   I am sorry to say that I have had to revert to version 2015.10.2.2215 because the system would not respond after installation and hanged after logging on at restart.  I ran avastclear.exe in safe mode and did a clean install of version 2015.10.2.2218 but to no avail.  Reverted to previous version by repeating avastclear.exe and cleanly installed version 2015.10.2.2215  without trouble.

Thanks for that report. I'll stay put with my current version for another week, or two, before allowing the update.

No problems with over-install via the UI (Win 7 x64).  I did get the Chrome opt-out screen after rebooting, but I'm used to that.  Nothing seen relating to Skype, although one of the staff did point out that's only on fresh installs.
