Since non of the fixes ever effected me, I don't really see a need for using the Beta unless
there's something new or some added security in this beta ???

You could just check if the fixes in the Beta doesn't cause you new issues ::)

Issue with Home Network Security scan on Win10 Home x64.

Smart Scan finds:


Resolve All Results =>



Rescan after that ( because everything looks good right?) =>



Here's the weird part; a separate, stand alone (not part of the Smart Scan) Home Network Scan produces this =>




Couple of points:
1)  Why does the Smart Scan produce different results on the Network Scan than just running it by itself?
2)  Smart Scan Network Scan shows only two devices connected to the network.
3)  Stand alone Network Scan shows 5 devices connected.
4)  Why does the "resolve / fix" not update or correct anything in the Smart Scan results?
5)  2 vs 5 ?

Anyone else see this kind of problems?  This is after a repair of the installation and several reboots but thanks for suggesting anyway.

This problem existed in the last 10.3.2225 and possibly 2223 also and was reported.
My findings previously matched yours Resolve All was fine, but run a Smart Scan again and it reported issues. I didn't run an independent Home Network scan, but doing so this time (without having used the Resolve all) returns everything OK.
Looks like it hasn't been fixed.

No new SafeZone :'( :'( :'(

@David I had it once with an old Beta, that the update settings were changed from Ask when an update available to Automatic update, but not anymore.

Greetz, Red

Hi Red!

I confirm. My W8.1 laptop is (as avast! updated automatically from free '10.3.2225 BETA' to free '10.3.2227' BETA), nearly unuseabl.
How can I avoid the automatic update?

@MartinZ
This unlucky update came too early and at the wrong moment (weekend and only a few Evangelists are online).

None of the fixes on the changelog seem to be related with the problems that I have with avast and Windows 10. And I seem to not be the only one:
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=174845
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=174748

Also, is it possible to install this Beta and than, once a stable version is released stay on that stable version?

If you do a clean install once the stable version comes out. :)
If you simply update from the beta to the full version, you'll receive the next beta once it's released. :)

Greetz, Red.
It's not under development, the last version of Private Firewall was 7.0.30.3 and was released well over a year ago...not something that should be used on Win10 imo or probably any other system unless there is active development.
