I also could not reach the internet through my browsers after this update (10.3.2223). I have Windows Vista.
When I turned off Web Shield then I could reach the internet.
I reinstalled Avast but that did not fix it.
I went back to the previous version for now.

This new version seems to be constantly scanning, looking in Statistics it appears to always be scanning item in the location C:\Users\[My name]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[string of characters].default\cache2\entries\

Is this supposed to be the case?

Many problems in my dutch Vista after online update to AVAST 2015 R3 (2015.10.3.2223)
All my browsers cannot reach internet anymore (not found message or hang).
After disabling Avast everything looks normal.
Same problem after repair.
By the way repair changed the Avast language from Dutch to Englisch (should not be done, I think)

Everything Ok after going back to 2015 R2.

Are there other Vista users with same problems ?

I also have Vista.  Installed 2014.10.3.2223 & had nothing but problems ... BSOD, system freezing up, Carbonite backup not working, etc.  Ended up doing a system restore to a restore point prior to the Avast upgrade.  I am now back on version 10.2.2.2218 and everything has been resolved.  Now that I am stable again, I did a system image with Macrium Reflect.  Do the system restore.  Hope this info helps you!

I've installed the newest version of Avast and it has messed up Outlook 2003 in numerous ways.

I desperately need a link to the prior version 2015.10.2.2218.

When I go to www.filehippo.com and try to download ANY version, it always downloads the newest version.

Can somebody please provide me a link to download version 2015.10.2.2218?

Thank you.

How did you go back to the previous version?  I can't find a link anywhere.

Just do a system restore like I did.  Go back to a restore point *before* you installed the update.

Excellent!  AVAST 2015 R3 (2015.10.3.2223) runs well with Windows XP.  There was a problem with AVAST 2015 R2 (2015.10.2.2218) which forced me to remain with AVAST 2015 R3 (2015.10.2.2215).

Would be nice if we received an update of the changes in 2224. :)

I've been having a very serious problem ever since I updated a few days ago. My computer freezes after a few minutes of web browsing. I'm also on Vista and using firefox if that matters.

The web shield is obviously the one causing this. As another user has noticed, it scans like crazy. I'm up to 20000 items scanned in just a few minutes using 2223, whereas with the old version it'd be at 1000 max. No settings were changed.

I've tried doing a clean install and the problem was still there. Gone back to the old version for now and everything works fine again.

Pilcrow,
Do you have a test Vista system to try the new AVAST 2015 R3 SP1 Beta (2015.10.3.2224).
I saw also the same problems as you with 10.3.2223, but i am not allowed to test in that Vista.
Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I can't go back to a prior system restore as the new version WIPED OUT MY RESTORE POINTS.
This is so irritating...
