Wow, this Beta really came as a surprise for me :)
As I have to make some preparations first, I will take a look at it in the weekend.

Known issues:
...
- “Shielded Window” mode in SafeZone browser doesn't work yet.

I guess this is the "SafeMode" for dangerous websites, so you can run them on a separate browser in a Virtual Machine ?
At least that was the description I got earlier.

Greetz, Red.

Yes, Shielded windows is new name for SafeMode. Recommended to use for anonymity or visiting suspicious sites.

Cautiously optimistic from the windows 10 build 10547 land

Installed OK

No flashy white screen :)
No hang on reboot :)
IE works (yet to test Edge) :)
Shutdown still to test


Scans are still as fast
Safezone appears to work

EDIT :  Edge appears to be OK as well
I will now give it a multi-boot/reboot work out :)

Thanks gents

The lockup issue is also present on the current final build of Windows 10, tested on my grandpas machine.

On the Avast Free OFFLINE installer SafeZone Browser cant be unchecked as well.

Is there anyway to install Avast 2016 Beta without SafeZone browser?

I can not uncheck it.

The bad so far...
1) Installed then "unprotected">clicked "fix now">nothing>did a repair>now "protected".
2) Not sure about SafeZone Browser>no information.
3) GUI is really bland and has no color>at least v8.0 had color>worst looking GUI ever.
4) What happened to the tabs on the left side.
5)Clean install>unable to import "backed-up" settings.
6) Hard Disk is two words.

The good so far...
1) "Processed File" and "Infected files" back on the scan screen.

The configure button under Firewall is quite useless as it brings the usual Application rules, but does not open specified software settings there. So there should be only one bigger "Configure".
Or it should open Application rules with specified software menu opened - like this http://snag.gy/ZxNvn.jpg

Chicken ;)

I have just installed/updated from the 2233 UI - that said I got a system hangup after boot which required a hard restart. 

How does the new Safe Zone work in avast free - my guess is it doesn't given that previously this was paid only - if so, why would this be included in the free version. I only noticed it as WinPatrol Plus flagged it.

Installed over 2015.10.4.2233 Premier via GUI. No problems so far, working fine here :)


GUI looks quite empty, but its coloring is not so bad for me.
It looks like a picture of horizon. 8)

Avast! Safezone Internet Browser Use too many Process and that is effect my system preformance,Ad blocker of does not block any ad on website on safezone Browser.I check that.
Confirmed, but not so much memory; memory usage of each processes is rather small.


BTW... What is this "D" button in Home Network Security? (See attached image)
Main: Win10 Pro 1909 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 19 Premier Beta / Comodo Firewall 12
