I wish it was this way in my case. Instead there were the usual pre-checked two checkboxes...

Why are you still offering stupid Chrome on EVERY SINGLE bloody program update? What makes you think I want the damn thing after I've declined it 10 freaking times so far!?
Don't know if I'm just lucky, or if it is the fact I'm using AIS instead of the free version, but I didn't see any Chrome offers for a very long time.
Seems I'm also lucky, same here with Avast Free. (I certainly don't miss it... ;))

 >:(  for me it's also annoying that despite I have the IS version, the green label "UPGRADE" is always there on top of the UI pushing to get the PREMIER version... I would stand it for the free version, but it's too much on paid subscriptions... (considering also that the additions in the Premier version are completely meaningless to me!  :-\ )

Clean install: everything work fine, except two things:

- in passwords manager when show password and show password history it's ask for my master password every time

Hi Zeniit,
thank you for feedback. We ask for the password again for security reasons. I understand that it can be annoying, but how often do you want to see the password. In this approach  nobody can steal your password from UI.

On mine Chrome is opt in ?
<snip>

Strangely I got offered it (well not offered as such opt-out) in the 11.1.2239 build - but I didn't even get the after reboot screen on the 11.1.2240 update.

Since the last upgrade, Avast Firewall is not working for me.
Repair Avast:
1. Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs -> Avast
2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.


Problem solved. Thank you very much!

I have a feeling that the final version of Avast 2016 will be released in the last week of November or early December  :)

Found a little typo, should be fixed, see attachment.
It should say 'Virus definition is out of date'

And for god sake, can you people stop resetting the damn System Restore to 3% all the freaking time!? Jesus.  ::)
Hmmm, Petr said he would fix it... :-\

Avast uses System Protection feature for NG in older Avast version. We resized system protection up to 25-50% and let OS to manage it. Then we developed our own solution and we reset it back to 3% for all users. I'll fix the code to do that only for users with 25%+. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

OMG, only now I've noticed it. System restore is at 3 percent and all restore points deleted :)

This nonsense HAS TO STOP. The only time System Restore might save you from lengthy problem solving and avast! creates one by carelessly deleting restore points and forcing it to 3%.

Do not have that problem on windows 10 as restore is turned off by default
