Avast R3 beta bugs
« on: June 16, 2015, 01:25:53 AM »
It took 9 minutes for the system to boot.
The system seems very sluggish since the update.
Google Chrome Browser crashes and is unusable *
I'm sure this accounts for the slow start and sluggish initial reboot:
 


* After a repair of Avast, I'm again able to use Chrome without problems and crashes.

The restore point Avast creates prior to updating the program never happened ???

The remote control function is still requiring permission on the remote device:

Since this is my own system and I'm out of town, giving that permission on the
other system is not possible.

Office 2013 just got killed by Avast's protection. Not a good move:

Well, that's why the beta. So that this kind of stuff gets aggregated into the cloud. I'm guessing they have it connected with this feature...

Smart scan not working. During the browser cleanup this came up while removing
an item and now Chrome crashes.

If Avast no longer uses the System Restore Point for their virtual Technology,
Why has it wiped out all of my restore points ???
(Seems like someone rushed this beta version ??? )

Bob, several users have reported the same issue in the past month or so.  Don't think this is related to this being a beta, but a bug not fixed yet.

I didn't have this problem till I installed this beta. So it can't be a previous bug on my system. It has to be the latest beta that's causing it on my system.

Hi Bob,

systray redesign unfortunately still not ready for this release, but will be done in V2016. Similar to the Remote control with password, but to be honest this functionality isn't used as we would expect.

It probably would be if it was functioning properly. Since it now requires entering a password on a system you don't have access to, it's impossible to use.  :'(

Yes it will do the feature better definitely, but unfortunately there wasn't enough users even before we removed it. So the password won't save it, just slightly improve it ;-(

Is this an indication that Avast plans on removing this feature ??? It's especially useful on the business side.
Controlling computers in other offices without actually needing someone in that office is a great addition to keeping thing updated etc.
