Re the knocking out of restore points. Although this happened on my wife's 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium but not on my 32 bit Vista Home Premium I have Tweaking.com's Registry Backup on both machines and make a restore point using Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service which backs up onto external usb hdds prior to installing a program. I also make restore points using the standard method to the C drive therefore ensuring belt and braces backups.

I have Vista & went back to a previous restore point after this update ruined everything.  I noticed that I only had 3 restore points to choose from.  After the system restore, I made sure I adjusted the amount of disk space system restore uses for restore points.  Those of you still on Vista may want to do the same.  Here is a link as to how to do it in Vista.

Read these directions very carefully before doing this.  I don't know why Microsoft made this so difficult to do in Vista.

Everything is Vista is difficult. It's a Windows 7 early beta. :)

Would someone from avast please tell us how to restore the behavior of webshield to its previous state? I don't have the system restore point that I can go back nor do I want the old version in my system. This version is getting annoying already. Scanning of https links makes no sense to me. I don't want it to scan them. 62000+ items in just few minutes is preposterous.

Hello Sir, thank you for the tip. However, this was my second post regarding this (see link below). Maybe I should raise a ticket regarding this since avast team is not responding here.

That's entirely up to you. I simply made the answer already given by Avast in your other post a little clearer.
A ticket never hurts and maybe Avast can offer you and everyone else some other relief for this problem.

This update completely crashed my Windows 7 Home Premium partition - wiped out all Restore Points, as well as BSODing on normal boot and any safe mode boot.  I went though the usual troubleshooting:  Initially trying to revert to an earlier restore point via the Win 7 install DVD, only to find they were gone; doing Startup Repair once I found that I couldn't even boot into safe mode (it found no issues, which is always fun) and running chkdsk/sfc/etc.; posting BSOD minidumps to other forums for analysis, which essentially told me the same thing (remove Avast), which I was sort of able to do through another partition.  The last thing I expected from an update I honestly don't recall choosing to install was a good ol' BSOD upon restart.

Thankfully I have a Win 8.1 partition, and the data from the Win 7 is accessible.  However - really for my fiancee's convenience - I'd really love to be able at least boot into safe mode without freezing on "classpnp.sys" and then endlessly restarting when that mode is selected. 

TL;DR - Bricked my computer, erased my restore points, and has genuinely been more difficult to resolve than some viruses/malware I've come across.

I hear ya.  I got lucky and still had a restore point left.  Am almost to the point where I'll be dumping Avast.

I just reverted back to .2215. The recent version was too annoying.

Hi,

could you please be more specific, what was annoying?

Thanks
