I'm on Windows 10 Insider Preview 10532. Avast updated to 10.4.2228, not 10.4.2229. I haven't restarted yet, but I am currently getting a notification to upgrade to version v10.2.2218!

I really want a more friendly approach in these matters. But I have a bad filling that the nagging won't be solved for free users in near futures. Still game/silent mode is the way of avoiding the nag. :-\

About the issues with https scanning. There were no big changes on XP https scanning, I will check more.
It's not just XP and/or beta issue, people were having similar issue with earlier versions too: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=174202.0

Hi DavidR,

its really strange you got on WinXP on build 2229. This should never happen. Please can you send us support package or log files from Persisten Data directory?

Expected behavior is:
- full installer 2229 on WinXP - fails with error
- online installer 2229 on WinXP - installs 2228 version
- all updates on WinXP should be stopped by version 2228

About the issues with https scanning. There were no big changes on XP https scanning, I will check more.

I have run the support package and settings set to send it to avast the File ID: 315VX.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.9.2494 (build 21.9.6698.703) UI 1.0.672/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

I have now uninstalled 10.4.2229 and reinstalled avast 10.3.2225.

Points of note: I couldn't do a clean reinstall as the avastclear.exe threw up an error, not compatible for this system (or words to that effect) or the file is corrupt (yet it passes a CRC check). I guess that this was a new version to cater for 10.4.2227 and later beta builds.

So I decided just to install 10.4.2227 and then update to 2228 - but I got the same error as I did with avastclear.exe. Ended up installing 10.3.2225 and started getting issues with images in yahoo.com again.

I Disabled HTTPS scanning, stopped and started the web shield, opened yahoo and whilst the images now appeared, but despite https was disabled avast was scanning them.

There are now a large amount of topics/posts relating to this non display of images and =this issues isn't limited to XP as was first thought - see https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=176073.0 as just one example.

Why doesn't the full installer have the same behavior as the online installer ?
Should be logical :)

Hi beegolden :)

When the new version is ready (comes out of beta) where will I find it?

New stable releases will always been posted by Avast as a sticky here https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2.0

Will I need to first update to x.2225 and then to the latest?

No, you can always update to the latest version.
But you can also download the full installer, and install it over your current installation.
Or do a clean install.

Hi Mr.Sunny :)

Nothing really new in R4, it is just fixing bugs.
But with this release R4 Beta 3, Avast is also testing a new selective update mechanism.

Hi Mr.Sunny :)

I don't use the manuals that much ...
But if you have suggestions, I can put them forward :)
