Greetz, Red.

Hopefully it will have a solution of the cascade of issues in 2223 through 2225 win XP even SP3 with system lockups whist browsing, using MS Excel, chkdsk, etc. etc.

Must have something to do with his Rednose, inquisitive, asking questions and contacts.

There is a lot of good alternatives around. Even IE11 has it built in in some level, so personally I don't think it is a must.

But MS Edge has no ad blocker/Banner blocker.So i think it is a basic need.

I have been told by Avast Support that the next major update is expected in a couple of months. I submitted a ticket after a existing bug that I found in the previous few version of avast (still exist in the current release) and hopefully my discovered bug may get fixed? This discovered bug is a tricky and strange one and it has to do with avast account sign in via Avast GUI and idavast.com showing incorrect installed features .

Lol guys,

I never said what kind of Beta it will be.
I only said a new Beta, so maybe that new also relates to something new ::)

-1
avast has enough attached bloat, not to mention there are more ad-blocker add-ons than you can shake a stick at out there already.

-1 No need for Avast to add a ad blocker. Download and install Ad Blocker Plus. Been using it for years and years. An excellent program for use.

Concerning Ad-Blocker: This is the answer from my mail-provider since a couple of days, trying to login in my account.
